Problems Operational Excellence Solves | Use Cases

Organizations have an imperative to transform in ways that engage customers and employees while realizing a product and portfolio roadmap that supports Lean project management, and a flexible, scalable technology profile. SDLC Partners solves the following portfolio management and product delivery problems, enabling a cycle of sustainable digital delivery and quality.

Strategic Misalignment

Traditional budgeting approaches focus on funding projects without a well-defined process to adjust and reorganize the portfolio to address the inevitable changes. Organizations that fund projects without a well-defined methodology have no way to effectively prioritize new investments. Clients need to adopt a system that supports a continual flow of evaluating initiatives and realigning budgets to support their strategic vision. Read Case Study

Lack of Project & Program Visibility

Creating an Agile Program Management Office (PMO) establishes objective metrics and reporting processes that encourage business agility, not hinder it. Today’s Agile delivery approaches require PMO operations that support decentralized program execution while balancing compliance with speed.

Project Overload

Centralized work intake approaches can lead to inflated portfolios that exceed project demand capacity. Project overload occurs,  negatively impacting program delivery capability and leading to missed target timelines and performance outcomes. Modern portfolio management supports Agile and enables nimble initiatives, redirecting funding as market situations evolve. Read Case Study 1   |  Read Case Study 2

Resource Bottlenecks

Resources limited by operational silos and organizational boundaries severely hamper Agile and Lean methods and lead to resource contention, underutilized resources, and missed objectives. Teams organized around value streams, and reoriented toward customer centricity, are better suited to support continuous delivery and optimized value flow. Read Case Study
