Project and Portfolio Management
BearingPoint assists clients in defining and implementing processes and tools used in their IT
Governance model. Our Delivery Framework provides the methodology from strategy, design,
build, and deploy to the required tools and processes for portfolio and project management. We
evaluate the current state business environment related to the IT project governance. We view the
Business as the key stakeholder of IT projects, as such it is important to understand their
requirements and assess the service and capability gap between what is expected and what is being
delivered. The target PMO Operating Model is then established together with the required
processes, policies, and procedures such as change control, issue and action management plan, and
approach to quality management. When required, we assist the client in evaluation and selection
process of the appropriate tools based on the required functionality. Some recent examples include:
a. Origin – BearingPoint was engaged to establish an Enterprise Project Management Office
(EPMO) that will ensure a ―robust, mandatory Origin-wide approach to enterprise IT investment
and service delivery‖. We assessed the current state of Origin‘s project governance, engaged the IT
and Business stakeholders on the potential solution, and designed the governance structure with
clear ownership and accountabilities. b. Telstra – BearingPoint was engaged to set-up the data
migration project office to assist the Client and its major vendors in their massive and complex task
of data migration. BearingPoint implemented the project management tools, processes, and
reporting that assist the migration of customers to the new platform.

Project and Portfolio Management
New projects are critical in delivering business value to the consumers of IT services. The
optimisation of the funding allocated to projects is an essential tool in aligning business and IT
strategy; Booz & Company strongly advocates a project portfolio management approach as an IT
governance best practice. Key aspects of portfolio management are:
- Aligning business and IT objectives. Project Portfolio Management aligns business and IT plans
and objectives within the constraints of funds and capacity by creating a project program agreed by
stakeholders and IT.
- Prioritising IT investments. Scoring project proposals against selection criteria allows for trade-
offs between competing projects to be assessed and alternatives considered.
- Ongoing monitoring of projects. Project monitoring is implemented to allow re-prioritisation
when the project landscape changes during the delivery process.

- Realisation of benefits. The portfolio process includes tracking of benefit realisation to ensure
outcomes are achieved and that lessons learnt in the delivery process are captured to support
ongoing project process improvement.

quality, independent consulting services to public and private sector clients. Our key people have
been providing business and ICT strategy services, program management, business improvement
services and program/project evaluation services to NSW, Victoria and Commonwealth
Government agencies for over 25 years. BSR Solutions has focused largely upon the provision of
professional independent consulting services to the Government sector. Of our three directors and

Company Accreditation (Optional)
The ISO9001:2008 Quality System maintained by BSR Solutions and externally certified by BSi,
centres on 3 business processes (1) Sales and Marketing, (2) Tender Response Preparation, and (3)
Client Project Engagement and Delivery. Our Project Engagement and Delivery process requires
continual monitoring and management by the assigned Director and has stage checkpoints for
reviews with the BSR project team and/or with client representatives. Our use of the PRINCE2
methodology provides the basis of developing a project charter and plan which ensures the
appropriate management controls and review of stage deliverables. In 25 years BSR has not had a
client assignment which did not deliver the agreed quality outcomes, was over time or over budget.
All of our past and current clients can attest to this.

Our overall project management framework is based on PMBOK and PRINCE2 and is the product
of many years of experience and is a tried and tested approach tailored in its application to the needs
and profile of a particular assignment, internal and external personnel assigned and client
expectations. Usually developed and agreed during the initial project orientation and planning
phase, the Project Management Plan (PMP) describes the overall management approach to be
employed, and the management policies and philosophies that are to be established for the joint
project team. The core purpose of an agreed PMP is to reach a common understanding of the project

Project: Enterprise Project Management (EPM).
Approach: The vision of the NID Executive was to create a work environment to support business

extensive analysis uncovered the business requirements and recommended a solution based on
Microsoft Portfolio Manager, SharePoint and Project Server. The continued administration and

at both the individual project and at program and portfolio levels. The reporting functionality has
enhanced decision-making, maximised resource utilisation and increased operational efficiency.
Project 2: Infrastructure Management System (IMS)
Project: IMS Program Mandate and Roadmap
Approach: IMS is responsible for the development of 3rd Level support for a variety of enterprise
network and application management tools. Our developed a Program mandate detailing how the
various capabilities supported high level organisational objectives. A roadmap was created that
mapped the capabilities to the Defence ITIL model and communicated to a broad audience.
Outcomes: The business case was submitted via two Ministerial Submissions for the
implementation of new capabilities, both were fully supported, and approved, as they have been
identified as foundation capabilities supporting the Strategic Reform Program.

Project and Portfolio Management
Ernst & Young uses our "Effective Program Delivery" wheel as both a tool and a process to support
the ICT governance process. This tool assists senior executives to check a Program or Portfolio‘s
health in terms of the respective underpinning projects. This allows senior executives to understand
which projects are on track and those that have deviated or must be stopped because they are no
longer relevant. The tool produces easy to read graphics that are mapped against each other through
relative rankings. It achieves this through providing a framework which considers the key
influences on a program‘s success, as shown below:
- Business acceptance
- Vision and direction
- Planning and execution
- Measuring and monitoring
NSW Department of Housing
Implemented the Project Directorate for the MRP, an initiative designed to change the way in which
maintenance is provided to their 130,000 dwellings with the intent to move to a more planned,
rather than reactive maintenance strategy.

Provided both advice and assurance to management to ensure that the program and project methods
being implemented were appropriate and being used efficiently and effectively.

Company Background
GrayMorr is a small business based in the Canberra Region and operating since February 2008. We
assist organisations to add significant, measurable, and sustainable value to their governance and
service delivery operations. Our approach is evidence based and helps managers to align people
with business and performance management systems. Our evidence based approach begins with
defining what the business wants from the project. Using this knowledge, we identify those parts of
the business that need to change to achieve the desired outcomes. Typically, this involves changes
to policy settings, business processes, responsibilities and IT systems. GrayMorr is experienced in
leading projects in these four aspects of reform. GrayMorr consistently focuses on the specific
needs of its clients. We provide senior managers with a better understanding of how to improve
delivery of program outcomes; build on the best of an existing approach; and develop a culture of
sustainable improvement. We work closely with clients to manage projects in a planned and
controlled manner. Our independent, reliable and practical advice helps our clients to improve
program outcomes, reduce costs, and manage risks. We deliver end to end solutions, undertake
specific project elements, or provide specialist skills for different aspects of project implementation.

Project and Portfolio Management
GrayMorr has experience in delivering project and portfolio management services within large and

business outcomes thus allowing the organisation to achieve expected business benefits. Our Project

Management. Using these methodologies we group activities to uncover duplication and overlap.
They also help us identify any risks or constraints to a project so that we can put in place
appropriate controls and use resources efficiently across a range of projects. We provided a
consultant to IBM Australia to implement a spam filtering system for their client, Medicare
Australia. Using the PMBoK methodology, GrayMorr provided operational, strategic and project
management advice. Our consultant developed implementation plans, policies and procedures and
managed the project so that it was delivered on time and in budget. GrayMorr implemented a
Whole of Government Blackberry Service for the ACT. Our consultant recovered a troubled project

and delivered a solution in a Microsoft Exchange environment utilising a Blackberry Enterprise
Server. The project was recovered using the Prince2 methodology. Prince2 provided a structure in
which our consultant gave operational, management and strategic advice and developed an
auditable trail of project documentation. His project management skills allowed the project to be
retrieved.

Company Background
Achievement of your objectives depends on effective execution. Improving your capability and
capacity around project and program management can be a great way to improve alignment
between day to day activity, the delivery of desired outcomes and the realisation of benefits.
Projects – temporary endeavours designed to deliver specific outputs, and programs – sets of related
projects designed to achieve particular outcomes, are an increasingly important part of
organisational life. HineSight Development provides project and program management services that
help improve your capability, and enhance your capacity to deliver. Project and program
management consulting services support clients in the development and delivery of projects and
programs. Services include: • Design of project/program approach • Development of
project/program plans • Stakeholder analysis • Scope identification • Quality assurance of
project/program processes and artefacts Project and Program Management is becoming an
increasingly sophisticated and knowledge based field – there are lots of ways to go about it and not
every approach is right for every situation. Our consultants are qualified and certified across the
major discipline approaches and we use our experience in the delivery of projects and program to
help tailor an approach that suits your circumstances.

Company Accreditation (Optional)
Our methodology base includes – Prince2, PMBOK, MSP, P3O, the Standard for Program
Management and more. Our consultants are members of the Project Management Institute, and
HineSight Development is an APMG Accredited Consulting Organisation.

Project and Portfolio Management
In a knowledge intensive, always evolving field like project and programme management, the role
of and range of services offered by Project or Programme Management Office (PMO) is one that
has undergone (and continues to undergo) significant change. Previously the PMO serverd
primarily an administrative/support role – administering the various project logs (issues, risk,
quality, etc), and monitoring project expenditures against budget, project procurement, project
configuration and change management, and project contract management. Contemporary practice
(particularly as expounded by the OGC in their P3O guidance) sees the PMo with a dual
compliance and capability role. Not only ensuring projects and program follow corporately agreed
guidelines, but also ensuring that the guidelines are robust and based on best practice, and that the
practitioners in the organisation have the skills and support to effectively follow the guidelines.

Project and Portfolio Management
ILX consultants work with organisations to establish and embed Project & Programme Offices. The
IT service of a multi-national ceramics manufacturer was one client who needed to define the scope
of services for a PMO, develop it‘s delivery capabilities, and demonstrate that it added value to it‘s
host organisation. Our consultants engaged with the PMO team to define levels of service and to
develop documented procedures for project identification, commissioning and support. We worked
with the client teams to develop tools for tracking project progress, resource allocation and usage,

and capital investment across the portfolio. This enabled the Governance of the IT function to
monitor, track and control projects with greater precision, and to predict resource issues before they
arose. By establishing capital control and resource usage KPIs, they were able to demonstrate their
contribution to the organisation‘s effectiveness. Public sector clients often need to deliver in
partnership and our consultants recently defined and implemented a ‗Virtual‘ programme office for
a local strategic partnership delivering projects for Police, Fire, third sector and Local Authorities.
This virtual capability was delivered by establishing a shared framework for small project delivery,
consistent governance arrangements through engagements with each CEO within the partnership,
and a clearly defined resource usage policy. Projects within a portfolio require effective alignment
and control, and our consultants can develop resources and expertise to support the processes and
deploy the tools that will underpin coordinated and effective project and programme delivery.

Project and Portfolio Management
An effective Portfolio/Programme/Project management Office (PMO) ensures that your projects are
properly directed and supported, your sponsors and stakeholders remain engaged and informed, and
your internal capabilities grow and mature. This reduces risk through effective programme and
project execution. Information Professionals‘ capability encompasses major methodologies
including PMBoK, PRINCE2 and MSP. Our vendor and product independence applies to our
methodology and toolset recommendations. Our services include PMO Establishment, PMO
Review, and PMO Support and Supplementation. We also provide mentoring and coaching to
develop internal capacity. In 2007, a complex state government technology based change initiative,
was part of a larger programme with its own PMO. This PMO did not provide the full support to all
member projects and was restricted from change. Information Professionals reviewed the current
PMO capability and defined a supplementary Project Office. The overall PMO benefited from
having a Project Office to liaise with, and the new Project Office helped ensure successful short-
term delivery. This Project Office was eventually merged into the PMO to the benefit of the
Programme as a whole. From 2005 to 2009, Information Professionals established and operated the
Programme Office for a major technology based change initiative within Queensland Treasury. This
was a PRINCE2 and ASAP based site, with a multi release programme. Information Professionals
established and operated the PMO for the LEAPS and NSAP Programmes in Queensland Rail.
LEAPS was a winner of the 2004 Australian Institute of Project Management award as a result of
its success.

Project and Portfolio Management
A Project Management Office (PMO) is an organizational commitment to employing sound project
management principles across all project operational, functional and supporting disciplines.
The PMO delivers effective project governance at project, portfolio and program levels. An
effective PMO establishes standards and common project methodologies across the organisational
environment that increases the probability of project success.
A major factor in establishing an effective PMO is adopting a project culture within an organization
through the definition, planning, implementation, training and support phases.
There are benefits and outcomes in establishing a PMO; however these must align with and support
the organisations‘ strategic direction. There is no one PMO solution that meets all organisational
demands however, it is important that the PMO objectives and structure fits within the existing
corporate culture.
ITPM has developed an Adaptive PMO methodology for establishing, operating and maintaining an
effective and efficient PMO.
The methodology introduces some of the potential business benefits that a PMO provides to an
organisation and then initiates the outline in determining the requirements, structure and expected
outcomes necessary to meet those benefits. This supports the engagement of a sound project
management methodology and processes to establish a foundation for standardised, consistent and
accountable work practices.
Recent client engagements include:
1. SITA/MAS
ITPM were engaged in a Program Manager capacity to establish, manage and maintain SITA‘s
responsibilities within a joint SITA/ Malaysia Airlines (MAS) PMO aimed at deploying a Passenger
Services Platform.
2. JetStar
ITPM were invited to implement and manage a Program Management Office (PMO) for Jetstar‘s
ICT division in Melbourne. This engagement is ongoing and has been extended to include the
provision of project managers for operational deliverables.

Company Background
Overview
Jacobs Australia (JA) is part of the Jacobs Engineering Group Inc (JE) headquartered in Pasadena,
California. JE is one of the world‘s largest and most diverse providers of professional technical
services. With annual revenues exceeding $US8.5 billion and over 54,000 people, Jacobs offers
full-spectrum support to government, industrial and commercial clients across multiple markets.
Services include scientific and specialty consulting as well as all aspects of engineering and
construction, and operations and maintenance. JE is therefore an extensive source of capacity and
capability should JA need to call upon international assistance.
Overview of the Group
Our immediate parent within JE is Jacobs Technology Inc, headquartered in Tullahoma, Tennessee.
Jacobs Technology is the Aerospace and Defence arm of the company and provides scientific,
engineering and technical services to a wide range of government clients, including NASA.
Organisational Structure
JA falls within the ‗Scientific, Engineering and Technical‘ core market of Jacobs Technology which
reflects our role of providing specialist professional project management, systems engineering and
management consulting services to government and commercial clients.

Company Accreditation (Optional)
We control the delivery of services (including Risk management) through the application of our
Client Service Delivery Model (CSDM). The CSDM itself and the organisational responsibilities
for its effective operation are detailed in JA Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) 200-6, an integral
part of our ISO9001:2000 certified Management System (first certified by Lloyd‘s Register in June
1999 and continuously certified since then). All system SOPs, associated forms and templates are
available to all employees. Documentation currency is controlled through all posted versions taking
precedence over any ‗uncontrolled when printed‘ versions.
The CSDM is an overarching SOP and hence separate SOPs are not developed for individual
activities, rather appropriate plans are developed where particular levels of detail are required. For
example, Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) activities on software being provided to
a client‘s project are conducted under the control of the CSDM and in accordance with the
applicable standard as identified in the IV&V plans developed for the activity.

Project and Portfolio Management

- conduct Program Risk and Issue Management
- monitor projects to ensure project support for individual projects is maintained;
- provide timely, analytical written and verbal advice to relevant stakeholders; and
- provide strategic planning options to ensure the program schedule meets client requirements.
We established and maintain a PMO for the Department of Defence‘s Hornet Upgrade Program,
which is now a mature operational unit and both routinely, and on demand, provides strategic
planning; options analysis; modelling to predict aircraft availability in normal, crisis and ―what-if‖
scenarios; production and other scheduling; risk and issue management; and status reporting.
Also for Defence, we established, validated and maintain the framework, processes and systems to
be used by and for the New Air Combat Capability (NACC) PMO for the effective planning,
monitoring and control of the NACC project. This included conducting a low level CMMI based
review of Project Support Office processes & systems.

Project and Portfolio Management
Kitbag Consulting is skilled at employing the balanced scorecard methodology which focuses on
the performance drivers in an organisation. These drivers include customer relationships, internal
business processes and internal learning and growth opportunities. The balanced scorecard is the
original management theory that attempts to quantify the effect of these drivers on an organisation‘s
performance, to provide a picture of true organisational capability. As a management system, the
balanced scorecard measures are ―derived from a top-down process driven by the mission and
strategy of the business unit‖, and set out as tangible objectives that can be met. It is being used as a
strategic management system by organisations to accomplish critical management processes. These
                                                          Project and Portfolio Management category,
                                                                            Version 33, September 2011
are: Clarify and translate the vision and strategy; Communicate and link strategic objectives and
measures; Plan, set targets, and align strategic initiatives; and Enhance strategic feedback and
learning. When there is consensus on the organisation‘s objectives, an organisation can then go
about identifying the objectives and performance measures for its internal business processes. By
the very fact of identifying objectives for an organisation, core processes of that organisation can be
clearly highlighted. Linking an organisation‘s objectives to learning and growth objectives can then
demonstrate the value in investing in intellectual capital, information technology, and other
organisational processes: these may be significant enablers and generators of organisational
improvement. As scorecard objectives are developed by management at the highest level, they
become the vehicle by which management then become jointly accountable to the organisation.
Some of the assigments Kitbag consultants have been involved in are:
-       Department of Defence- CEI Refresh. Rewrite and project manage the rewriting of
Defence CEIs and supporting financial and procurement procedures into FINMAN 5 and facilitate

Project and Portfolio Management
Companies routinely over invest in non-value-adding projects and over promise on large project
portfolios. Such practices can lead to consistent IT budget overspend, delays in program delivery,
compromised quality, and poor alignment between business and IT strategy. McKinsey typically
addresses three sources of value from a functioning IT project and portfolio management: 1)
Portfolio optimization to assess the business value of all projects, optimize risk vs. return, identify
and eliminate functional redundancies across businesses / demand organizations, focus project
portfolio on key business initiatives to enable successful delivery, and monitor and review project
value from approval to benefits capture; 2) Capacity optimization by focusing resources on value-
add projects, prioritizing by business value, delaying or stopping low-priority projects, and shift
lower-cost internal resources to high-priority projects, thereby reducing need for expensive external
resources and increasing overall capacity; and 3) Alignment between business and IT by developing
portfolio through an ongoing discussion between business and IT
Two recent projects include:

1) Defined the project portfolio to support the business objectives of a New Zealand based universal
bank, and supported them in launching the programs and portfolios of projects required to deliver

2) Support a global logistics players in defining the integration project portfolio of projects required

Project and Portfolio Management
The ANZ and previously undertaken a project to implement Clarity as an enterprise project
management toolset for a substantial project community comprising over 9000 active projects in the
system and 5000 active resources.
The implementation of Clarity had been unsuccessful and as a result, the ANZ requested MetaPM
assistance in the recovery and remediation of the Clarity enterprise toolset.
This was successfully achieved and remediation of the platform included:
Established system integrity with cleansed data.
Development of a dashboard for unprecedented visibility.
Documentation of new functionality.
Enhanced reporting available.
Uncovered a depth of issues in process and practices, business ownership, and data inconsistencies.
Over the past year, MetaPM have worked with William Angliss Institute of Tafe to establish a PMO
in the organisation. The growing rate and complexity of change in the organisation was demanding
a greater strategic response. Strategic change is typically delivered through projects, yet projects
are becoming more complex, crossing organisational boundaries. WAI Tafe were experiencing
inconsistent project management delivery results, particularly time and cost overruns.

MetaPM enabled WAI to establish a PMO that would provide a clear delineation between day-to-
day business operations and strategic change, management of project performance and optimal
utilisation of resources.

requirements.

health of PMOs starting with the determination of PMO type required. The PMO type is essential to
determine due to their strategic nature. Even administrative PMOs report on the outcomes of
projects and subsequently progress against strategy. Object staff have been responsible for the
evaluation, selection, and implementation of project and portfolio management (PPM) software
tools. Prior to evaluation, Object staff have been responsible for the development of requirements to
evaluate tools against, as well as, further development of requirements for configuration /
customisation of PPM products. When embarking upon a major programme of work Westpac relied
upon Object Consulting to support a Programme Management Office. Object provided the structure
and processes required to run projects and programmes of work within the TOM programme. This
was born out of a strategic need for Westpac and performed as part of their process improvement
initiatives. Object performed changes to and development of PMO tools, processes, and capability,
whilst supporting implementation with coaching and mentoring. GIO was assisted by Object in the
creation of a PMO designed for the monitoring and control of software development projects.
Object provided GIO with a matrix management structure to support co-ordination of projects and
disciplines to ensure strategic outcomes.

Quality management is an important aspect of any enterprise. The process of Quality management
must suit the operations of the relevant undertaking so as to add value to the process and output
rather than it dictating the path to achieve the same. At RubiKon we operate in accordance with
AS/NZS ISO 9001:2008 and we follow these standards in producing our Quality Management
System (QMS) and quality regime. A QMS must be clearly documented and be a tool to assist in
the achievement of project and business goals. At RubiKon we are happy to assist in developing an
existing QMS to each these standards or to develop one to meet the needs of the organisation. An
understanding of the objectives of a quality management system is a vital stage in the process.
Communication of requirements and the development of processes that compliment the activities
are also important considerations in the process and there is a large degree of interdependency
between this skill and process definition and improvement. Continual improvement of the QMS and
the operations are a key consideration and has been the focus of implementations completed.

RubiKon has a number of qualified and experienced professionals who have managed large and
complex ICT projects and programs throughout the entire lifecycle of system implementation. Two

Synergy‘s MD (Susanne Moore) was a sitting member of the sub-committee that authored AS-

ICT Governance of ICT Contracts. Ms Moore was also the founding member of the Queensland
branch of PMI, has presented papers at AIPM symposiums and was involved in discussions
regarding the introduction of ITIL into Australia.
 Synergy has not specifically sought accreditation to various industry methodologies such as
PRINCE2, CMMI, P3M3, ITIL etc as we believe that these frameworks only define the start point
for establishing the relevant core competencies within an organisation and do not address many of
the people skills so essential to enabling organisational capability. Notwithstanding, our people are
very experienced and our own methodology (Integrity Management) is substantial. We not only
know the mainstream methodologies and frameworks such as PRINCE2 and PMBOK in substantial
detail, we have higher level business and people skills that ensure these methodologies actually
facilitate successful execution.

Project and Portfolio Management
Synergy has undertaken numerous assignments to build or improve the governance processes based
around project and portfolio management. The services Synergy can provide include:
- Assessment of existing PMO performance and value;
- Advice on objectives, structure, and implementation approach for establishing a PMO;

Project and Portfolio Management
Optimising project and portfolio management approaches is embedded in both the ‗Strategy‘ and
‗Transformation‘ focus areas of BCG‘s global ICT Practice. BCG assists government agencies to
maximise the benefits associated with their ICT investments in two ways:
1. Managing project portfolios to ensure scarce resources are invested in projects with the best value
/ risk profile; and
2. Improving project implementation capabilities.
This involves rigorous assessment of existing / planned projects in terms of value and risks to
prioritise scarce resources (i.e. SMEs, capital, etc.). We also support clients to implement periodic

review processes that capture changed risk and value profiles and identify opportunities to
discontinue projects that are failing to deliver expected outcomes.
We also assess and ‗recover‘ projects at risk of failure. This involves both quantitative and
qualitative assessments (e.g. financial attractiveness, risk assessments, early success indicators
based on our proprietary DICE methodology, stakeholder surveys).
We also provide a complete scorecard assessment of the project portfolio at different stages of the
project life cycle.
Recent project examples include:
1) Developed a three-step project portfolio management process and reviewed the entire project
portfolio for a major Australian federal agency, resulting in a significant restructure of the project
portfolio and discontinuation of high profile projects.
2) Designed and established the enterprise program management office for a major Australian
financial services institution. This included defining a single prioritisation framework and standard
project templates, creating a central group and defining the necessary processes to optimise ICT
investments across the organisation.

Project and Portfolio Management
Project and portfolio management is a core strength of The Frame Group.
Frame designed, documented and implemented the Programme Management Plan for
Commonwealth Bank (CBA) Network Perimeter Services projects which are managed by Frame.
This covered: the overall governance structure between CBA and Frame for NPSS projects; the
overall programme structure; the process for managing the projects that will form the programme
and the control and reporting mechanisms for the programme and its projects.
Sydney Water Corporation‘s (SWC) data and voice network had reached end of life and required
replacement. The current contact centre was a managed service which the organisation wanted to
bring in house. Additionally SWC was moving its corporate headquarters from Sydney City to
Parramatta. Frame was selected to provide Program Management for the tendering process and
management of the IT relocation. Frame established and operated the program management office
(PMO) that: defined and implemented reporting structures and tools, identified key resources and
skill sets needed to staff the PMO, developed and managed the program budget, determined
program tools, managed risks, defined and planned program stages, managed the project plan and
schedule, and provided reports to SWC management.

Project and Portfolio Management
Through benchmark and best practice research, Hackett has found a high correlation between the
ability of projects in an organisation's pipeline to successfully deliver the expected results and the
oversight of a Program Management Office (PMO) for those projects. A PMO that spans across the
enterprise (an EPMO) is able to capitalise on the efforts of the business and functions to deliver
projects on time, on budget and to specification to realise the intended benefits. By aligning the
strategic direction through a streamlined project portfolio using balanced prioritisation criteria, a
company can achieve greater success by having a common approach to project delivery, reporting
and benefit tracking.
Hackett has developed a phased approach in assisting organisations with establishing or maturing a
Program Management Office to an enterprise capability level. Specific tools for aligning delivery
approach, benefits realisation, project tracking and project reporting are tailored and implemented
according to the organisation's maturity, change-readiness and need. Hackett's top-performer
processes and a program framework are established to allow efficient synchronization of data and
visibility into project progress, enabling speed and accuracy of executive-level decisions.
With the experience of implementing EPMOs and PMOs across the world, with varying sizes,
scopes and maturity levels, Hackett is able to deploy solutions rapidly and effectively to enable a
company to realise immediate returns and govern its projects successfully.

Company Background
The Nous Group (Nous) is a consulting company specialising in assisting complex businesses to
maximise their performance. We exist to achieve positive influence, which means working with
clients whose products and services we believe will improve our society‘s well being and working
on projects critical to our clients‘ success. We care about and deliver outstanding results for our

benefit for the client. We have expertise in strategy, organisational and information driven change,

clients in both the private and public sector. Our clients include major state and federal government
departments and top ASX listed organisations across several industry sectors including health,
human services, financial services, environment, utilities, science and technology. Nous was
established in 1999 because its founders wanted to apply their management consulting and
leadership development capability to issues that mattered with clients who shared commonality with
Nous‘ values.

Company Accreditation (Optional)
Nous is an Australian Government Endorsed Supplier. In our governance work, we use the key
standards AS/NZS 4360 (a minimum requirement of Victorian Government Risk Management
Framework) and the AS 8000 series of standards to identify key governance activities. We have in-
depth understanding of AS4360, CoBIT and Victorian/Australian government standard approaches
(such as VAGO guidelines for IMT projects, Victorian Dept of Treasury & Finance‘s Investment
Management standards and the ‗Gateway‘ Review processes of both the Victorian DT&F and the
federal DF&R) to identify, analyse, evaluate and treat risk to ensure projects effectively deliver the
identified benefits. Nous is expert in Prince2 and other project management methodologies and
applies ISO and Australian standards for security threat, risk assessment and strategic security
management. Nous consultants are skilled in project management toolsets for risk management and
we bring to our work the core competencies of deep expertise in organisational culture and
performance management along with organisational change management and the workings of
government, including e-Government and government service delivery models. This adds rich
insight into risk and success drivers in major government IMT projects. For our information
management and technology activities, Nous applies AS8015

Project and Portfolio Management
Nous works with clients to develop strategies, processes and procedures for excellent project,
program and portfolio management, particularly focussing on risk management and benefit
realisation. Key objectives are improved coordination, standardisation, consistency and exploitation
of synergies amongst projects. This is achieved through analysis of strategic objectives, client and
stakeholder needs and current processes. An alignment test is conducted to identify gaps and areas
where improvement is required. An example of this type of project is when Nous worked with a
mid-sized Victorian government department to improve its project portfolio planning and increase
overall returns from ICT investment across the department. Nous reviewed current projects and
processes and then developed recommendations for improved project portfolio planning. To move
towards a more disciplined, structured approach, better support long term resource planning and
improve overall results for funds expended, Nous recommended a range of strategic improvements
in the management procedures for departmental ICT investments. In a second project example,
Nous ran a trial and reviewed an IT-related project prioritisation tool for another Victorian
Department. Nous assessed its portfolio management process for IT projects and their IT self-
assessment checklist for adequacy against departmental requirements. The process and tools were
found be valuable aids in visualisation and prioritisation of IT related projects. In addition to
providing relevant information to the CIO, Project Office and other project decision bodies, the
tools were also found to be useful prompts for project managers to focus on benefits and risks at
commencement of a new project.

Project and Portfolio Management
At Strategic Directions we offer a complete program / project office service from initial review and
planning, to resourcing and implementation.
It‘s not uncommon for staff to feel threatened when a project office is being established, so our
consultants work closely with management and HR to ensure a smooth introduction. We have
adopted an approach that overcomes their concerns and clearly outlines the benefits of having an
effective interface between project staff and management.
Our consultants are accomplished professionals with many years of experience working in business
and the IT Industry. They work with clients to ascertain the most effective type of project office
structure to suit their business needs. The options include:-
Fully in-house and client resourced / Managed in-house with outsourced support from Strategic
Directions / Fully managed by Strategic Directions
Active program or portfolio management involves continually reviewing projects to ensure they
remain on track and that their value principle is intact.
Our project management model groups all activities into programs so that instances of duplication
and overlap are discovered, and that any risks or constraints are highly visible. This process then
allows resources to be efficiently planned across an entire program of works.
Our methodology maps the benefits of a particular project and assigns ownership to make sure the
outcome is successful.
Effective program planning also makes certain that significant investment in projects delivers
measurable returns. It identifies projects that are unlikely to have positive outcomes so they can be
abandoned at an early stage.
Organisations that have benefited from our experience in this area include:-        Queensland
Transport / Main Roads, Springfield Land Corporation

Project and Portfolio Management
A core service is the establishment of PMOs and project methodologies/practices into client
environments. We have established these across a diverse range of industry sectors - manufacturing,
utilities, retail, not-for-profit; financial services. A PMO is a complex organisational entity, with
each environment requiring careful consideration of the following four elements- value,
organisational context; form and structure; roles and functions. Our approach in establishing an
adaptive environment for project and portfolio management/PMO is to clearly understand drivers,
ensure key stakeholders ownership; selection and implementation of practices and reporting tools
(reference to Gartner PMM Magic Quandrant) that assist decision-making; communicate successes;
and encompass an environment of continual improvement and training. Bendigo and Adelaide Bank

engaged PPC to establish and manage a PMO for a large program of work. With several major and
sub programs/projects within the program of work this engagement was a considerable size. As
project team members were predominantly from consulting firms there was an urgent need to
establish risk and quality protocols through adoption of a single project management methodology;
stringent project progress reporting; and project control (monitor and tracking of resources, budget,
timelines and deliverables). PMO was responsible for management and distribution of project
scheduling, resources, reporting, change management, issue and deliverable registers. Country Road
engaged PPC to establish project management methodology/practices predominantly for use within
the ICT Division but ultimately to be adopted organisation-wide. This project involved the
establishment of project management protocols, handbooks and supporting templates, including
training programs

implementation for Alcatel-Lucent.

Company Background
ThinkPlace is a strategic design consultancy focussed on helping organisations articulate their
direction, designing services that deliver on that direction and bringing about the organisational
change to deliver those services. We have significant experience in designing architectures for
enterprise ICT systems that strongly link to agencies‘ strategic intent and business architecture (eg
Case Management and Customer Relationship Management), and in developing project
methodologies, investment and governance arrangements, and design approaches that directly tie
ICT to a business and strategic context. We work with complex organisations across the public
sector – government, not-for-profits, community, economic development, social development and
voluntary organisations. We also work with private sector organisations involved in delivering
public and community value. ThinkPlace has accumulated a wealth of experience and knowledge of
the public sector context. This means we can hit the ground running on complex projects to turn
ideas into reality fast. We have broad experience across multiple government agencies and public
sector organisations. We understand government service delivery, regulations, compliance and law
enforcement. ThinkPlace‘s unique design approach helps our clients view their challenges from a
different perspective and with an authentic focus on people, their experiences and opportunities for
innovation that creates public value.

Project and Portfolio Management
ThinkPlace has a strong capability in establishing and operating project and program management
offices (PMOs) for significant government agencies that provide an enterprise-wide methodology,
creation/custodianship, independent project assurance, project mentoring and support, and
investment planning. We are particularly adept at achieving this where the PMO has an enterprise
design role integrated with its project/program management role. The following examples were
completed successfully, and both drew upon a wealth of experience in the ThinkPlace staff based in
PMO and project management frameworks, enterprise design, and practical implementation of
PMO arrangements. In 2007, ThinkPlace worked with Customs and Border Protection to assist in
the strategic design and methodology development of Customs and Border Protection‘s newly
established Design and Project Management Office (DPMO). We also facilitated portfolio-level
investment planning forums, in collaboration with the DPMO and CFO‘s office. For another
Commonwealth agency, in 2011, we set up and staffed their first enterprise PMO. This included
                                                        Project and Portfolio Management category,
