Maximising Returns & Minimising Risks
When procuring & implementing IT Systems
Visual, Objectives Focused, Quantified,
Collaborative & Data Driven.
50% to 75% of projects do not achieve their Objectives.
Studies indicate a primary cause of failure is weak governance and a lack of focus / data on Objectives.
In an increasingly data focused business environment, setting, validating, measuring and tracking, project Objectives remains challenging.
Skop.es supports a data driven driven approach to Objectives Setting, Scope Definition, Verifying Objectives Attainability, System Selection, Implementation Oversight, Adoption Programs & Benefits (Objectives) Realisation.
Significant, multi stakeholder, team based projects, that run over months or even years almost invariably lose focus on their original objectives. Everything tends toward entropy.
Objectives and deliverables are rarely quantified, so it is uncertain what impact a project will have, and if deliverables can realistically attain the desired outcomes.
Completed deliverables do not attain objectives, they create platforms for attainment. Tools must be fit for purpose adopted and utilised before business outcomes can be attained.
People (and knowledge) leave the team, priorities change, new information comes to light, sh!t happens. Objectives get lost or forgotten, so often not achieved.
Failure to clearly plan objectives / benefits realisation activities, puts the project success at risk, e.g. if the required realisation actions can not (or will not) be undertaken.
Solution: Live, data driven, quantified projects
Skop.es drives achievement of business objectives
- Orients projects toward objectives as the foundation, or “why” of a project
- Quantifies value & impact of deliverables based on their contribution to objectives
- Verifies if objectives are realistic based on a deliverable set or scope of work
- Live tracking of progress towards attainment of objectives / benefits realisation
- Live tasking of impact on outcomes of de-scoped or challenged deliverables
- Automates time consuming key project activities through systematisation
Supporting the whole IT value chain
A consistent focus on objectives benefits everyone
Skop.es facilitates quantification of objectives (financial and non-financial benefits), and tethers objectives to detailed project deliverables. This way progress towards objectives and benefits realisation can be tracked and measured.
