Success Story

Church Pension Group

CPG previously implemented a PPM tool from a PowerSteering competitor. Their Project Management Office (PMO) later realized that this application did not fit the needs of the organization.

MAKING THE BEST DECISION

CPG previously implemented a PPM tool from a PowerSteering competitor. Their Project Management Office (PMO) later realized that this application did not fit the needs of the organization. When CPG decided to revaluate their decision they initiated a new selection process with multiple vendors.

PowerSteering was evaluated along with other competitors by twelve CPG users from different functions across the organization attempting to use the software for different test cases. The users voted overwhelmingly for PowerSteering and were extremely positive that this was the best tool to fit their different needs.

The PowerSteering team listened to our needs, adapted to our requests and met our the timeline – We have a great working relationship.”
– Ellen Taggert, Vice President, Project Management Office

RESULTS

PowerSteering has enabled the Church Pension Group to automate their existing Project Life Cycle (PLC) methodology across all projects, ideation, resource and annual planning, including multi-year strategy planning, across the organization. Originally an IT heavy project management implementation CPG has evolved to look beyond IT to include cross-functional team resource planning on non-IT projects and analyzing planning budgets versus actuals.

LESSONS LEARNED

he Church Pension Group gained some important knowledge and experience during their first PPM tool implementation that helped make the PowerSteering rollout successful:

Use a slow-go thoughtful methodology that doesn’t try to implement all of the tool and functionality at once. They took a year to 18 months to do the full implementation.

Focus on using the functionality that enables more efficiency at the start and less on using all of the tool.
Start with a small team of heavy users, add and engage the executive leadership and then rollout to more users and utilize additional functionality.
