When it comes to project management, we tend to talk about the tactical—the assignments, the tasks, the approvals, and so on. But business is evolving, and many project teams are now being asked to lead change, instead of just timelines and milestones. This evolution is accelerating and is driven by fresh thinking and business necessity supported by advanced technologies that are highly accessible to a much broader range of contributors. Effectively managing work is no longer just the role of a few specialists.
In this Whitepaper you will learn lessons from 40 PPM experts on making the transition from project management to project leadership.
Organizations are managing a rapidly escalating number of projects due in large part to the consumerization of IT.
As a result, you face growing demands for mobile technology-based apps and services – on top of your backlog of already ongoing strategic initiatives. And when priorities keep changing, functioning effectively is difficult without Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) tools that support your need for additional oversight, better decision-making and more efficient use of resources.
The need to speed innovation is a fundamental business reality today—but so is the need to contend with finite budgets and resources. Project and portfolio management (PPM) delivers the key capabilities organizations need to straddle these competing demands, but for many businesses, the time and money required to implement on-premises PPM platforms has kept these initiatives on the back burner. With CA Project & Portfolio Management SaaS (CA PPM SaaS) your organization can leverage a comprehensive, SaaS-based PPM solution. As a result, you can harness the capabilities you need to innovate more quickly and optimize your resource investments—without having to incur the time and effort of deploying and maintaining a PPM platform on premises.
Keeping up with the new pace of change requires building agility into your business to adapt to change faster, while carefully overseeing your investments. The integrated solution of CA Project & Portfolio Management (CA PPM) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally) helps you effectively balance agility and governance by connecting the work of agile teams to your enterprise portfolio. Supporting an evolutionary approach to adopting agile, the solution lets you continue using traditional methods, while growing agile adoption to deliver on portfolio investments faster—with higher quality and predictable business results. A holistic view across all projects helps portfolio managers optimize budgets and resources for maximum return on investment.
Today’s adaptive enterprises have to leverage data to remain flexible and responsive, but they need the right data.
But it isn’t easy: Many companies struggle to improve technical execution while maintaining the visibility executives need. That’s why we created CA PPM + CA Agile Central, a seamless integration of our agile-management and business-portfolio management solutions. Together, they provide unparalleled visibility into both funding and work across every level of your organization.
CA has reevaluated the design methodology behind its PPM tool to deliver an end-user-driven solution that better reflects the goals and motivations of the entire team, helps to ensure project confidence and removes the stress associated with the possibility of project failure.
At the core of this new design methodology is our proprietary research, which unquestionably points to the need for an outcome-driven approach to innovation, chiefly concerned with understanding and measuring the customer’s success criteria.
We implemented CA PPM + CA Agile Central within our own organization, to prove out its efficacy as a combined solution, and the results exceeded even our expectations.
CA PPM was used extensively in our Global Information Systems (GIS) division, which supports our 12,000 employees across the globe. In order to improve its competitiveness in today’s digital marketplace, GIS wanted to standardize its delivery approach, so they implemented CA Agile Central as well.
Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity. Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management.

We’ve also built new, embedded BI capabilities that make powerful data and insights more accessible to everyone.
