Every year we here at Daptiv are excited to attend Gartner’s PPM & IT Governance Summit, which is being held this week in National Harbor, Maryland June 2-4.
While there, we’ve been focused on highlighting how our PPM solution is used to address common challenges facing business leaders today, concentrating on key topics such as:
- The need for configurable, flexible PPM technology capable of adapting to a business’ people and processes
- The importance of customer data security in today’s increasingly complex and vulnerable business environment
- The growth and maturation of the PMO and how it is evolving to meet enterprise-level needs
- The importance of aligning IT projects with business strategy and balancing demand for IT services.
Daptiv’s New Organizational Change Management Offering (OCM)
This year at the summit, we are also proud to announce a completely new set of tools for the PMO to manage change within an organization, helping to address the critical people component of change management for organizations implementing new technology and processes companywide. Our new OCM offering will focus primarily on the critical aspects of change management, and will ultimately help our customers better prepare for large-scale technology and process changes. By emphasizing and assessing the specific requirements of each unique customer, our new OCM offering allows for tailored communication, learning, and sustainability plans and deliverables, which are developed and incorporated during the life of a project to improve company-wide adoption and project success.
Contrary to popular belief, most project failures occur because the people, processes and environments within a business are unprepared or unmindful of the changes that need to take place for successful technology deployments. This can have an enormous negative impact on project success rates. Our new OCM practice helps our customers minimize these failures, and will integrate directly into what we offer with our Daptiv PPM solution.
Gartner predicts that by 2016, successful transformation program leaders will direct 60 percent of the budget to organizational process change activities. These programs take into account how much change a business can undergo in any given period. As much of this responsibility will fall within the confines of the PMO, they will need to successfully navigate OCM and adjust to the evolving industry landscape, requiring even greater alignment and the ability to work collaboratively and synergistically.
