PROJECT, PROGRAM & PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT

In today’s business environment, transformation requires complex coordination across multiple platforms, time-zones, partners and cultures. Success requires leadership, processes, and tools uniquely adapted to meet this challenge.

Companies today have tremendous flexibility and project delivery capacity through the use of vendors, outsourcing, and offshoring to augment their in-house capabilities. The ability to scale capabilities has never been greater—however, this additional capacity comes with broadly distributed resources that have few interaction points in their day-to-day activities and often have little contractual incentive to work together. To make matters more challenging, integration across systems and platforms is now so prevalent that customers expect (and demand) that their company’s financial, sales, fulfillment and support systems operate in harmony to share information and provide a 360-degree-view of their accounts and activity. Therefore, coordination of ALL resources–internal, vendor, and outsourced—is essential to the achievement meaningful results.

Lake Shore Associates (LSA), helps companies Build, Operate, and Improve solutions that simplify and bring clarity to the modern discord of competing demands and disjointed capabilities. Our team uses experience and insight to find solutions that simplify Project, Program, and Portfolio governance in a way that works within our clients’ unique environments to improve decisioning and execution. We believe that the most successful companies do not simply pepper additional reports or processes into the old way of doing things.

They have processes that dynamically assess and re-calibrate based on shifts in business needs, technical capabilities, or unexpected issues.
