The Agility Shift: Strategic Portfolio Management Trends For 2023
Join us as we explore the emerging trends and the critical role that strategic portfolio management will play in helping every organization drive business agility over the coming year!
Resource management must happen at a strategic level, span all resources in all business areas, and address needs across multiple business cycles. To drive business agility, resource managers should adopt a comprehensive approach that supports all work, across the entire enterprise, regardless of execution method.
- Lack of visibility – Whether it’s an unclear picture of resources across business areas and work functions, a lack of clarity of resource needs over time, or the inability to manage resources effectively across different working methods, if you don’t know what’s happening, and what has to happen, then resource planning will never be effective.
- Lack of insight into appropriate actions –You know that you don’t have enough people to do the planned work. But what do you do? Should you reduce the number of planned investments? Can you move the schedule around to deliver more? Is it better to add resources, and if so in what form? The answers will vary with circumstances, but for many organizations the answer is always ‘we don’t know’. And that’s a problem.
- Lack of integration – Resource planning is a cause and effect discipline – you can’t make a change in one area without also having an impact elsewhere. Unless there is a fully integrated, strategic approach to resource planning, capacity planning and all other related disciplines, there will never be a consistent way to ensure that all work has sufficient resources, both now and in the future.
