Business Process Management:

When designed properly and implemented effectively, business process management initiatives maximize the utilization of an organization’s time, resources, and capital to create long-term value.

Dyce Technologies develops and refines business processes to be simple, clear, and consistently applied throughout your organization.

We align your processes with your strategic goals so that every activity provides meaningful value and supports optimal performance. Our project management consultants collaboratively lead Business Process Management (BPM) initiatives from start to finish - characterizing the current state process, identifying gaps and opportunities to improve efficiencies, redesigning and creating a “to be” state, and implementing the new process – helping clients establish a deep understanding of their business processes and controls in order to optimize quality, safety throughout, and cost management. Dyce Technologies collaborative approach also helps organizations evolve a continuous improvement capability and disposition

Dyce Technologies approaches your BPM initiative with a critical eye and applies our extensive experience and knowledge of continuous improvement methodologies which include Lean, Six Sigma, and other analytical tools. Dyce Technologies silent features and analytics are combined with essential change management approaches to ensure critical stakeholder buy-in and therefore sustainable application.

Our experience in process improvement has proven that optimized processes require thoughtful integration to deliver value. Too often, processes are redesigned only to be partially adopted or, worse yet, never implemented. In other cases, poor implementation and immersion leads to a reversion to old methodologies and heuristics. Integrating processes with human intervention enables adoption, value creation, sustainable application and performance. Dyce Technologies employs a disciplined approach to process design, improvement and integrates change management practices to ensure your processes are not only sustained but continually improved.

  • Increase the strategic value of your business process efforts
  • Improve the quality of products or services
  • Improve resource morale and utilization
  • Achieve consistent results
  • Enhance your organization’s ability to change

PMO Deployment, Operation, and Enhancement:

PMOs are increasingly being entrusted with more strategic responsibilities:

Organizations continue to be challenged with the consistent application of defined project management processes, resource planning, forecasting, and other business demands. A well-managed Project Management Office (PMO) can address these challenges in order to ensure successful project delivery. We work with clients when they need to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO, or optimize and enhance an existing PMO to meet a set of evolving challenges, functions, and services.

Deploying a New PMO:

The first step PM Solutions takes in deploying a PMO is to assess the current environment and develop a deployment roadmap incorporating your organization’s culture and operating practices. We will work with you to identify, prioritize, and establish a set of fundamental PMO functions and services. Deployment includes establishing governance standards, developing the PMO Charter and communications plan, identifying resource needs and performance measures, incorporating the right amount of repeatable delivery processes to fit your culture, and improving the competencies of your staff through training and mentoring. Emphasis is on the PMO providing an organizational entity focused on improving the management of your portfolio.

Operating a PMO:

If project management is not a core competency, consider outsourcing the PMO. PM Solutions works in partnership with you to understand your goals and establish a structure that will achieve them. We will evaluate what you currently have in place and will subsidize as required. Or, if preferred, can utilize our customizable toolkit of proven techniques and methodologies. Constant communication, incorporating organizational change management is crucial to the success and is a core tenet of our PMO operating model. Performance measures are collectively established upfront with you and progress toward established goals is continually evaluated via quality and performance reviews.

Enhancing an Existing PMO:

PMOs are consistently being challenged to provide additional value to their organizations. To meet business demands, projects must be completed faster and cheaper. The business wants more transparency and they look to the PMO to optimize project resources. We can help your organization rise to the challenge.

To take your PMO to the next level, Dyce Technologies will first review and evaluate your existing PMO structure, and provide recommendations targeted to enhance it. We will develop a transformational roadmap, identifying areas of opportunity, and will collaboratively with you create an implementation plan for deployment. Common areas of focus for this type of transformation may include enhanced visibility, level of PM competency evaluation, portfolio resource optimization, demand management of both project and operations work, and facilitating organizational change. PMOs offering this level of service govern with a senior management focus on strategic issues and facilitate change across the organization.

Project Management Methodology Implementation:

Is your methodology agile enough to meet business demands?

Methodology Development:

Dyce Technologies can develop methodology and process to meet your organizations needs by taking into account the size of your project portfolio, complexity and duration of projects/programs, and your current operational model (are you growing or are you contracting). It's important to have the right level of process, associated with the appropriate artifacts and tools, to enable your project teams to deliver.

There's no need to start from scratch. We will evaluate the current state of your processes and utilization across your organization. Our expert consultants come equipped with a toolkit of processes, forms, and templates to draw from that can be used to subsidize what you already have. The key is to have the right level of process to maintain control and deliver projects in an expedient manner.

Methodology Deployment:

The deployment of methodology is not a one-time effort. Once you have a process and artifacts developed, they must be deployed. Different methods can be used to deploy new process and standards within an organization. Some examples are classroom training, workshops, lunch and learn.

Coaches are highly recommended to work alongside Project and Program Managers in a group setting or on a one-on-one basis to ensure that the methodology is properly put into practice. To support natural attrition within an organization, we can provide a new hire orientation process to make transitions smoother.
