CPM Tool Selection

Selecting the most suitable CPM tool only works if you’re comparing like for like

Which CPM tool are you going to implement to achieve your objectives? A simple question with a complex answer. The tool has to fit with the organization as a whole, as well as being suitable for each department. On top of that, the tool has to be aligned with the organization’s CPM goals. We work with you to produce a scope definition and then act as your – independent –right-hand man in the quest for the best software package.

A detailed list of requirements and wishes

Having one-on-one interviews with relevant stakeholders within the organization enables us to uncover the pain points that you are currently dealing with, but also the ambitions that you have for the future. Based on those pain points and ambitions we draw up a list of functional requirements to make sure your future CPM tool is better equipped for you as an organization. Those requirements we translate into a demonstration script and a request for proposal to be shared with the relevant CPM vendors. By doing so, the CPM vendors provide you with a spot-on demonstration of their products, so you’re not comparing apples to oranges.

Three steps to selecting a CPM tool:

  1. Scope: getting a clear picture of the short-term and long-term objectives.
  2. Blueprint: a functional, theoretical description of what the ideal CPM tool should look like in order to be able to realize those objectives.
  3. Product demonstration: testing a number of CPM tools against the blueprint to see which is the best fit for your situation.

From blueprint to the real thing

A tailored product demonstration is crucial if the selection process is to be transparent. Our consultants take the lead and make sure the suppliers have to show their hands when the proposals are submitted. This avoids any unpleasant surprises later on.

Use our expertise so you make the right choice

You can only select the right CPM tool if you have a clear picture of how your organization functions and what technology would serve your business processes best. On top of that, it is only possible to make the right preselection and final choice if you know what solutions are available on the market and how those solutions compare in functional and technological terms. Our consultants have that knowledge and experience in abundance.
