CIO Practice

Pcubed understand the particular pressures that apply to CIO's and the IT community and in particular the continuous pressure on improving delivery of projects and services whilst reducing costs.

In the aftermath of the economic turndown, the CIO's agenda now has a laser focus much greater than in previous times. "More for less" is the 'mantra' of the day. Pcubed's approach to managing IT enabled change has always been to ensure that investment decisions are correctly made and that delivery is managed to the highest levels of efficiency.

We use a broad range of services to deliver efficient operations (Value Engineering) and optimum program delivery. Our services are structured to provide cost-effective support while building internal capability. Our practice is focused on helping you with the following challenges:

  • Optimized Investment

    We help you identify the portfolio of programs which will reap maximum benefits within your constraints. This involves assessing programs for contribution to strategic goals, the risks attached to delivery and the likelihood of success. Our proprietary tools help provide you with a clear and auditable rationale for the chosen portfolio.

  • Efficient Program Delivery

    The means by which organizations support program delivery are often inefficient and administrative in nature. Our rapid diagnostic tools compare your arrangements to best practice and provide you with a roadmap to ensuring that support delivers real added value. Improvement will typically reduce costs by at least 20%.

  • Building Delivery Capability

    We provide a lasting legacy of skills, processes and tools to reduce reliance on external consultants in the long-term while not compromising delivery in the short-term. We achieve this through skills transfer, access to our library of best practice process solutions and templates, and the use of our DeliveryHub PPM Solution.
