E&P is passionate about project management with governance and delivery. Good governance provides the tools to support the orchestration of the entire organisation towards its strategic goals, thereby unlocking the organisation’s competitive advantage.
We believe that the ability to deliver is of paramount importance, and that the ability to deliver is highly correlated with the ability to make decisions. The faster the decisions, the faster the delivery.
Good Governance with E&P
We define governance as a framework of authority and accountability that defines, controls and secures the outcomes and benefits of projects, programmes and portfolios. It is a mechanism for exercising financial and technical control over the delivery of work and the realisation of value. Simply put, governance keeps an organisation moving towards its strategic goals.
Implementation of WAGILE™ Governance: E&P Consulting advises organisations how to introduce company-wide strategic governance structures and to embrace transformation challenges.
Enable Fast Decision Making: WAGILE™ offers instruments to reduce the dependencies on availability and engagement of executive sponsors through a formal decision strategy that incorporates Expert Boards and Decision Gates.
Audit Proof Requirement Lifecycle: Defining end-to-end accountabilities and quality criteria for your central project focus: the requirements. With WAGILE™ you will implement a holistic solution with audit proof documentation.
Successful Project Delivery
WAGILE™ encapsulates the governance of the entire delivery lifecycle, from roadmap entry to benefits realisation. It is built using three concepts: ROADMAPiSATION, R@CE and COMMERCIAL SEASONS. These concepts underpin the working practices of a WAGILE™ centric EPMO. The concepts are applicable independent of the delivery strategy (Waterfall, Agile, SAFe, DevOps or others).
From Strategic Planning to Delivery: As E&P, we work hand in hand with our clients from strategic milestone planning with top management involvement through to operational delivery of the agreed scope on time and on budget.
Managing Cultural Impact: Through WAGILE™ Governance, employees feel comfortable in the knowledge that what they are doing is beneficial and recognised. Management can see that the roadmap is understood and acted upon. Communication improves and, as the framework becomes more widely used, it is greeted and acted upon with respect and becomes commonplace. Established organisations begin to act as one, fully leveraging their internal excellence and industry expertise to deliver change.
Key Project Ressources: E&P’s Project Delivery Consultants take accountability over programmes and projects including entire transformation programmes. They have access to proven processes, integrated tools, active communities (providing constant methodology improvements) and are supported by our Remote PMO. This makes our Project Delivery Consultants effective and efficient.
Realization of Strategic Goals
At its core, the WAGILE™ Governance Framework is a decision-making process based on the separation of decision research and decision making, with strong lines of accountability and responsibility that embrace the need for empowerment. Yet this process and its incorporation of delivery models allow projects to be benchmarked and compared. The resulting statistics create a platform for effective communication and promote evidence-based decision making.
The early alignment of project objectives and business strategy is a key success factor for the delivery of portfolios, programmes and projects.
The quicker an organisation makes educated decisions, the more agile the delivery. We stipulate agility through governance above agility through the delivery model.
The cost to enforce cultural change in organisations (i.e. “agile delivery for all”) is disproportionate to its value. The vehicle for change is empowerment.
Empowerment of delivery teams and trust in experts are elementary for a successful delivery. Empowerment needs a well-defined frame to avoid inefficient control structures.
Wagile Governance Framework
The WAGILE™ Governance Framework meets this challenge through the advocation of what we call “good governance”. Good governance promotes project success by aligning work with strategic goals. It creates a balance between the need to control projects and the freedom required by teams to deliver. Good governance is adaptive. It encapsulates the plethora of today’s delivery models and sets the strategic course for the entire delivery organisation.
