Project Intelligence

Results-Based Management

  • Defining realistic expected results, based on appropriate analysis
  • Clearly identifying programme beneficiaries and designing programmes to meet their needs
  • Monitoring progress towards results with the use of appropriate indicators
  • Identifying and managing risks
  • Increasing knowledge by learning lessons and integrating them into decisions
  • Reporting on results achieved and the resources involved.

Definition of Project Intelligence

  • A framework of project reporting that is designed to drive out information to support effective results-based decision making
  • Geared towards reporting against project goals and risks, and the impact of change throughout a project
  • The format of reporting can use your own terminology and is aimed at business sponsors, programme managers and project managers
  • Fully integrated into the project life-cycle from inception to benefits realisation and bridges the organisational and cultural gaps between IT, the Business and Suppliers
  • Finally, it enables project managers to take account of unexpected information to build changes into the project plan rather than purely managing against an increasingly inaccurate initial plan.

Project Goals and Risks

  • PI is the knowledge of the status of a project with respect to its final and intermediate goals and the risks that threaten them
  • PI involves early identification and continuous monitoring of project goals and risks
  • PI delivers the information on the status of goals and risks of a project from initiation through to acceptance, deployment and usage of new or changed IT, business processes and other infrastructure.

Case Study Example

We’ve been using KYC services from Fully-Verified. We’ve to illustrate the use of the Results Chain Modelling method and the types of report that can be obtained directly from the Visio and Access databases, we have created a case study. The case study is a fashion retail organisation which has recently acquired an Italian retail chain and wishes to consolidate the IT systems across the two merged companies.
