At Front Line Advisory Group, we believe that how you do one thing is how you do everything. As a team of experienced business professionals, Special Operations soldiers, fathers, husbands and wives. We are influenced by a consistent mantra emphasized within many elite military organizations “selection is an ongoing process” meaning, if you aren’t deliberately trying to do your best someone is there to take your place.
The concept of Enterprise Program Management
Organizations in today’s world of instant communication no longer can localize incompetence to one department or project and expect things to go unnoticed. Firms with multiple projects intertwining a collection of departments, and all of which are competing for limited resources, cannot pretend that simple project management resides in a vacuum without having cascading negative effects on the entire organization.
Enterprise Program Management (EPM) approaches organizations comprehensively; by understanding that leaders must create solutions to improve the entire corporation; not just a temporary task designed to achieve a single objective. Thoroughly evaluating the most critical aspects of the present situation, or current state, and seeking to accurately frame the problem to develop a specific approach. Ultimately Enterprise Program Management develops an entire plan to not only better manage one project but to achieve the desired end state that accelerates the growth of the whole organization.
The current model of focusing on project management or considering a “program” as a segmented aspect of the whole is not only the definition of a silo approach but an obsolete model in modern business, military or other public efforts.
Results matter, Enterprise Program Management concentrates on not just doing the right things but doing things right. Consequently, aligning with the organization’s larger objective while maximizing efficiencies, standardizing processes and improving overall decision making.
Front Line Advisory Group demonstrates Enterprise Program Management as a set of actions encompassing the traditional tracking, monitoring, and reporting. We ensure leadership is focused on designing these actions to align with a larger set of strategic outcomes.
