Integrated Management Architecture


Essential organisational management elements offered by Systemic Solutions:


- Fully Integrated Management Architecture to identify and deliver change effectively, efficienty and decisively.


- Atomic Schedule - including benefits management, requirements, solution tracking, deliverables tracking, estimation, risk tracking, financials management, dependencies management, resource and skills management, and minutes.


- Communication Minutes - captured and managed with an Atomic Schedule. Effective communication is the engine room that delivers organisational change. Critical information needs to be captured consistently in a centralised place. This information can be reconciled and turned in to management data.The management data is powered by the Schedule through the Management Architecture. This enables the organisation to learn, grow and act in a natural and effective way.


- Delivery Risk Management - Delivery Risk is about completing the tasks or activities in a schedule. Schedule based Risk Assessment and Mitigation form an essential part of  delivering change.


- Project Management - Projects managed from Start to end - with a fully integrated, risk based Atomic Schedule. If a project is in trouble, this approach can help to get it back on track, or provide the necessary visibility to determine feasibility ....... the project may need to be terminated early rather than find out later that it cannot be done.


- Program Management - Programs managed with an Program Schedule fully aligned with Project Schedules. Project scheduled are rolled up for Program level tracking. The Program Manager is responsible for Alignment of the project delivery with achievement of the business benefit.


- Project and Program Management Office - focus on rollup and rolldown schedules to extract management reporting, billing and other Management metrics and reports. Many Administrative functions are removed from the Project and Program Manager and consolidated in a PMO or PgMO.


- Portfolio Management - Portfolios tracked with a Portfolio Schedule - fully integrated, aligned and reconciled with subordinate Program and Project Schedules. Strategic change is rolled down through the Program and Project Schedules. The tracked Portfolio schedule enables alignment between the benefit delivery and strategic investment.  


- Organisational Management - reconciliation of schedule data is performed at each level of the organisation. This means that high quality management data is available to the senior management team to enable informed investment decision-making. The organisation benefits from:

    • a modular management architecture
    • empowered and informed teams - in control of their delivery and risk.
    • consistent and high quality management data - one point of data entry, management reconciliation and alignment.
    • improved management reach to enable change - thus facilitating more effective delivery outcomes.


- Business Simplification - the day-to-day management of the business is energised and simplified with an Atomic Schedule. People know what they are doing, redundant activity is reduced, organisational focus is increased, communication is improved, conflict is reduced, productivity increased and organisational fluidity improved.


- Complexity and chaos reduction - the Atomic schedule simplifies complexity and provides order and perspective where there is chaos and management uncertainty.


- Accountability Management - the Atomic Schedule clearly outlines where responsibility lies. It is difficult to hide or deflect responsibility with an Atomic Schedule whether it is at the team level, or the Management level.


- Corporate DNA - the Atomic Schedule is a natural way for an organisation to improve its health. It is a means for Senior Management to communicate down what they want to do, and for the project teams to communicate the reality of delivery. The clear communication cycle enables senior management to facilitate delivery rather than wonder what happened.


To be most effective, these processes are best implemented top-down, with full management knowledge and commitment.
