In addition to processes, policies, and templates, Processes On Demand provides PMO dashboards and a PMO dashboard RSS feed. These dashboard capablities enable the PMO to provide management and the leadership team with both an actionable summary of the top projects and programs of the PMO as well as direct navigation and seamless integration to areas of the project portfolio management (PPM) application of the PMO.
The Three Kinds of Dashboards that All PMOs Have
Many organizations struggle with PMO dashboarding. Some view PMO dashboarding as a graphical summary view of realtime project portfolio management application data. Others think of PMO dashboarding as a set of automated business intelligence reports and analytics that provide comprehensive detail that can be accessed at any time. And yet others view PMO dashboarding as a "one picture tells all" contextualized dashboard that is periodically prepared for the leadership team in support of their review, discussions, and decision making. All three of these PMO Dashboard views are correct and PMOs have and need each of them.
Filter, Context, Call to Action - "One Picture Tells All"
Processes On Demand provides the "One Picture Tells All" executive dashboard that is periodically prepared in support of leadership team review, discussions, and decision making. The Processes On Demand dashboards complement PPM application dashboards and business intelligence reports. Additionally, for those throughout the organization that do not have access to the PPM tool due to per user license and subscription fees, the Processes On Demand dashboards provide contextualized executive assessment, call to action analysis, and high value PMO report period information including:
- Summary Status View
- Schedule Status View
- Cost Status View
- Risk/Return View
- PMO Dashboard RSS Feed
"We have a PPM tool and a number of dynamic dashboards and realtime reports. What we don't have is the one picture that in each monthly staff meeting tells the whole story to our leadership team about the top projects of the PMO. Processes On Demand provided that to us; a filter, a context, and call to action for the leadership team all in one dashboard view. It even comes with an RSS feed!" -- IT PMO Manager, Fortune 1000 Firm
