Whether a project-oriented organization or an organization that uses projects to resolve specific needs, all projects face similar dilemmas: shortening TTM (Time to Market), maintaining a small budget with limited resources, supporting scope and quality requirements and achieving maximum customer satisfaction. With many different projects, things tend to get more complex as project activities and non-project activities combine and affect each other, leading to different trade-offs.
In today's complex environment, where projects are used to carry out an organization's business objectives, a project portfolio should reflect overall organizational strategy. Therefore it is crucial to have a project and portfolio management approach that is best tailored to your needs.
For organizations that deal with development, the approach should be combined with Product Development practices as well.
R&D Excellence practices help organizations improve the way they manage project-based activities.
Project management and portfolio management styles are becoming increasingly common at international firms. We support development organizations and IT departments in both project-oriented companies and other organizations that manage significant projects.
By building a link between design processes and a products' desired outputs, Tefen provides an explicit roadmap for DFX (Design for X) culture implementation throughout an organization. This culture consists of behavior standards, concurrent engineering perception, working processes and supporting tools, all of which result in much better and mature products. These products enter the markets with enhanced reliability, manufacturability, serviceability, usability, transportability, and more. Tefen's consultants can tailor the most appropriate DFX approach for your organization, and thus will enable proactive processes resulting in reduced product life cycle costs and increased customer satisfaction.
