CAMMS IPM: Enabling Project Management Maturity

Nov 24th 2014 at 5:08 AM

In an environment where projects are increasingly becoming fundamental components of business operations, project management has of late become the subject of much scrutiny. Likewise, the question of what makes some organisations better at what they do in delivering projects than others has been studied for many years.



With nearly 3 decades of experience in developing comprehensive Corporate Performance Management and Business Intelligence solutions, CAMMS understands the need for complete end-to-end project and portfolio project management.



CAMMS Integrated Project Manager helps organisations manage all organisational projects from commencement to evaluation.



Many organisations are grappling with efforts to effectively deliver projects in line with increasing budget pressures and stakeholder demands; not only on time, but to budget, scope and quality standards. CAMMS IPM fully integrates with financials, guaranteeing project reporting is “telling the whole story” with values, staff commentary, task updates and KPI progress.



In short, IPM has revolutionised the way organisations assess, manage and report on projects, and CAMMS clients across the world have experienced these benefits first-hand.



Waikato District Council's remarkable progress in increasing Project Management Maturity through CAMMS IPM is a CAMMS Client success story that is currently a talking point across New Zealand.



WDCwanted to implement a process to increase project success and address issues such as “scope creep”, capital works “carry-forwards”, sub-optimal planning outputs, budget variations and project delays



After reviewing over 400 solutions,it implemented an Enterprise Project Management Framework using CAMMS IPM along with supporting training/education programs to achieve a best practice approach featuring knowledge management, resource optimisation and better strategic alignment.



Manager of the Performance & Project Management Programme, Jarred Thomas says, “IPM offers a seamless approach to project management with linkages to finance - from task up to vision – which was what we were after.”



Although, reduction in time and cost is not WDC’s main objective, since implementation Council, has achieved time savings of around 8%, which is tipped to increase to at least 15%.



Their journey towards Project Management Maturity was even recognised at the Annual Project Management Institute New Zealand Awards Dinner this year. WDC was shortlisted as one of two finalists because of its remarkable advancements in project management maturity, achieved in such a limited time horizon.



In short, through its integrated project management system WDC has increased its project management maturity fivefold supported by CAMMS solutions, becoming a leader across New Zealand’s public sector.



IPM provides an online register of all organisational projects in which staff can easily access and record project information in the one centralised location.The solution's fully configurable templates with self-help prompts to guide empowers staff to work through a simple online proposal, assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation.
