Studies indicate that ~75% of digital transformation projects fall short their objectives (Geneca, McKinsey, Standish).
Objectives are the purpose, but most management tools and methods focus on deliverables.
Objectives Governance & Task Oversight
Problem: Projects are not Objectives Driven
The majority of IT & Digital transformation projects fall well short of expectations.
At Skop.es we believe a primary cause of failure is a lack of clarity, focus and data on Objectives.
In an increasingly data focused business environment, setting, validating, measuring and tracking, project objectives remains a blind spot.
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 unclear what impact a project will have; and if deliverables can realistically attain the desired outcomes.
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.
