Managing Enterprise Performance

The journey from vision to enterprise performance demands a plethora of interdependent projects and activities that must be harmonized to achieve strategic goals.

 

To ensure that enterprise performance achieves strategic vision, decision-makers must answer three critical questions:

  1. Is my enterprise strategic plan aligned with my vision and mission?
  2. Am I performing the right projects, with the right priorities, to support my strategy?
  3. Are my projects performing within scope, schedule, budget, and quality standards?
The Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) is a critical enabler, linking enterprise performance to vision.
     The FEAF was established in response to the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996 to facilitate the shared development of common processes and information among government agencies. Based on the FEAF, a given architecture can be partitioned into
  1. Business architecture: What is done, by whom, how, when and why.
  2. Data architecture: Information used by the Agency to do business.
  3. Application architecture: Applications/software that process data IAW-defined business rules.
  4. Technology Architecture: Technology infrastructure that supports the above three layers.

Oak Line is well versed in the FEAF and applying it to ensure hierarchical alignment of vision to enterprise performance, and a pathway to achieve this alignment through harmonization of mission, strategy, tactics, processes, and application.
Enterprise portfolio management is used to answer the second critical question. This frequently overlooked and neglected discipline ensures that successfully completed projects actually add value to the enterprise. In their landmark 2015 CHAOS Report, the Standish Group found that a shocking 41% of projects were NOT considered valuable.

Oak Line’s Enterprise Services align the enterprise  with strategic vision to ensure the maximum Return-on-Investment of resources to meet mission  requirements..

Oak Line’s enterprise portfolio management provides tremendous value to decision-makers in determining the optimal resource investment strategy to achieve strategic objectives. By translating technology issues into business objectives, decision-makers are better equipped to make sound investment decisions. Our approach supports proper stewardship of taxpayer dollars and maximizes Return-on-Investment for the portfolio of projects to be performed.

The final question, “Are my projects performing within scope, schedule, budget and quality standards?” continues to frustrate technical project managers. The Standish Group’s 2015 CHAOS Report also that only 29% of Enterprise systems implementation projects were successful. A staggering 19% of the projects were never completed or used, while the remaining 52% faced significant cost, schedule, or performance issues.
Without effective project management practices, the odds are against project managers. Although solidly performing projects cannot guarantee enterprise success, poorly performing projects certainly guarantee enterprise failure.

Today’s political and economic climate requires government officials to deliver enterprise results in an efficient and cost-effective manner. To achieve this daunting task a holistic, enterprise-wide approach is required.
Oak Line can provide your organization with world-class management solutions to help transform your strategic vision to enterprise performance.
