Demand Management/ Ideation
Shift 2 Demand
Project management is about delivering projects the right way, while demand management is about choosing the right projects to execute.
The expected benefits need to be identified for a go or no-go decision, with cost and benefit future projection, and a strategic and risk analysis. Nonetheless, to drive accountability and learn from missed forecasts a process must be in place to track the benefits after project execution, and understand the root causes of the missed expectations.
To assist organizations deploying an adequate model for demand management and benefit realization, we developed the SHIFT 2 Demand solution which extends the capabilities of Microsoft Project Online and supports a rich Demand Management process, catering for the following scenarios:
Stage-Gate process request
New product development
Business case and investment analysis
SHIFT 2 DEMAND Portfolio optimization
Out of the box Project Online supports 2 functionalities to deploy demand management processes: directly as a project, or using a Sharepoint list. Using SharePoint will always require the requests to be converted into a project, to run a what-if analysis to the portfolio and select the right projects.
However, both the Project forms and the Sharepoint forms are very limited, not supporting rich controls for time-phased grids for cost/benefit analysis, or smart forms requesting more or less information based on the investment size. To provide a rich and multidevice experience, we leverage the full power of the most recent Office 365 forms and workflows to provide you with a rich experience that supports all your business requirements.
