Demand Management

Demand management is about prioritizing all the ideas and project requests across the organization, so the PMO can execute the right projects at the right time. To do this teams can evaluate benefits, costs and risks through a scoring matrix, sometimes referred to as a balanced scorecard. They can use dashboards to manage demands in all stages enabling them to easily compare and prioritize project requests.


Portfolio Management

Portfolio management allows teams to quickly visualize the health and status of any portfolio of projects and instantly see how well the organization is doing against its strategic objectives. As new project demands surface, you can easily analyze the possible benefits, costs and risks of converting demands into approved projects continually optimizing the portfolio for your organization..





Project Management

Project management allows project leaders to see the overall status of all of their projects in a glance and then rapidly drill down into the details of any specific project. The system automatically rolls up effort, costs, schedule and risk information so project managers can easily assess and communicate status through health indicators. Items and actions that are most pressing are presented to the PM in prominent widgets. The work breakdown structure can be created and managed within Cherwell PPM or within MS Project and imported and refreshed periodically.



Resource Management

Resource management is critical to successful project planning and execution to ensure optimal allocation and utilization of project workers. PPM allows you to evaluate the commitments of organizational roles or specific individuals to ensure there is capacity to complete the work during the project timeline.
