Effective project and portfolio management has a massive impact on a business because most of the complex and critical initiatives are handled in projects. Still, most organisations are not providing their executives with the necessary transparency on strategic impact, benefits, cost of their projects, and the capacity to execute them to make good choices.
At the project level we struggle with lack of innovation, rigidity, exceeded budgets and deadlines, limited impact and demotivated people, who are not allowed the autonomy and agility needed to unleash their full potential.
We believe that project and portfolio management is a fundamental engine in strategy execution. It is key to realise organisations’ long-term business ambitions and deliver on their objectives.
We help organisations to remain relevant in the future by securing that their portfolio is innovative, agile and impact-driven and that their projects are led by capable project managers who are dedicated to realising benefits.
Portfolio and resource management
Project portfolio and resource management are the key enablers of strategy execution. They ensure that your organisation focuses its scarce resources on the most important strategic initiatives.
We help create transparency of where the time and money are spent and to reprioritise the effort in a structured, agile way. This creates the internal clarity and focus needed for projects and programmes to maximise value creation and accomplish strategic objectives.

How to deliver real, measurable benefits to your organisation. Benefits realisation is a well-proven method for designing and managing change projects to maximise value creation. It presents a new way of looking at change projects and identifies behavioural change as the key driver of benefits realisation.
By adding a structured approach to benefits realisation and change, benefits realisation enhances your existing project and portfolio practices, enabling you to unlock your organisation's full benefits potential.
What we do
Maximise benefits realisation in your organisation by making benefit-driven portfolio decisions based on credible benefits data from your projects, programmes and initiatives. We add benefits realisation and change to all your projects and firmly anchor the method in your organisation.
Make sure that you realise the benefits of your strategic ERP/PMI/organisational development projects. Gain transparency on benefits, track benefits and leading indicators during and after the project and ensure that key employee groups embrace new ways of working.
What is your level of maturity when it comes to benefits realisation? And perhaps more importantly, what can you do to realise more benefits in your projects, programmes or initiatives? We can help you establish a common view of your maturity level and tailor a plan to close the gaps and realise your benefits potential.
Training is essential for all individuals involved, including project and change managers, steering committee members, benefits owners, product owners, scrum masters, internal consultants and method owners. The training format can vary depending on the role, current experience with benefits realisation and whether the purpose is to build or sustain competencies.
Maximise benefits realisation with an Agile, SAFe® or Spotify development setup. We help you incorporate benefits realisation and change when defining the Epic/initiative and use it in PI prioritisations to ensure that you succeed with delivering both the technical aspects and the necessary change for realising the benefits.
To create value, change activities must lead to changes in behaviour that realise benefits. We help implement a structured and easy-to-apply approach to change based on several workshops and meetings, making it easier to support your colleagues throughout the change process.
Benefits realisation and change are hot topics at conferences and events. Get a keynote speaker for your conference or event or request tailored presentations for executives, steering committee members or project managers. We also facilitate half-day or full-day masterclasses for topic deep dives.
Executives must make strategic portfolio decisions based on strategic priorities, hard benefits and cost estimates. We provide the proper foundation for decision-making by adding the true benefits and cost estimates based on effective benefits tracking.
