The Role of Crowd Sourcing in Enterprise PPM

Written by Wayne Caccamo

Crowd Sourcing has been a part of PPM processes for years, but now many of these processes like ideation, project prioritization and best-practice sharing have a more hip term to describe how they more broadly leverage ideas and information from project team members and stakeholders across the organization and beyond. If you’re not taking advantage of crowdsourcing across the PPM process life-cycle from ideation to business case and proposal management to project execution and benefits realization, perhaps you should.

The best practices of EPPM

Governance: Ensure alignment of strategy, execution and results.

Resource Management: Support top-down and bottom-up resource requests and staffing processes and make it easy for project and resource managers to communicate their requirements and decisions throughout a project’s lifecycle. Provide a graphical analysis of resource and role utilization in order to help project teams manage resources in a dynamic environment and allow managers to see where resources are being used across all programs and projects, as well as their forecasted future use.

Communication and Collaboration: Quickly record, access, and review elements often to determine the successful outcome of a project. Adopting the ‘one single view of the truth' approach enables you to store everything about your project in a single, secure place enabling visibility into any potential issues or delays via workflows and alerts.

Reporting and Analytics: Deliver timely information for accurate decision making.

Cost Management: Roll up all costs to a central cost sheet normalized by a robust cost code structure, where project cost information is available for drill down by work package or for the entire project.

Cash Flow Management: Reliably forecast final costs by taking into account actuals to date, changes, trends, and risks over time.

Funds Management: Leverage a funds management capability that is fully integrated with the cost sheet, ensuring visibility of funding against project budgets, actual spend, and forecasted spend.

Document Management: Ensure that everyone is always working on the most-current versions, for storage of attachments, file control access, e-mail alerts, and version control.

Contract Management: Manage all of your contracts regardless of type, from simple material procurement to complex construction contracts and capture all relevant contract details.

Change Management: Manage all transactions leading up to and resulting in a schedule or cost change using approval workflows
