Project Server 2010 Demand Management

I am just at the project server 2010 ignite session in Sydney and it was most interesting. One thing becomes apparent, project server 2010 really rocks. Microsoft has done a great job, especially when it comes to project lifecycle management. A big part of this is Demand Management.

Over the last couple of month I have started working with the Demand Management component of Project Server 2010 and I promise to post some more about this shortly but lets see what Demand Management actually means:

What is demand management for Microsoft

Here are the main Challenges for Organisations organisations face:

  • Organisational ideas compete for attention and resources in project and product portfolios.
  • Organisations need to find the most beneficial suite of projects for benefit optimisation.
  • No realistic implication for Pet projects implementation.
  • No idea of what resource implication project proposals may have.

The solution that Microsoft came up with is referred to as Demand Management:

  • Collaborative platform featuring workflow management, business case, schedule tools, and a portfolio analysis engine that organizations need to comprehensively manage the demands of their organisation.
  • Portfolio What If scenario planning giving ability to objective decision making in regards to projects and resources.
  • Track progress against strategic goals to act early in case of non success

Are you excited? How this all works will follow shortly. :)

One area of demand management that I would like to see a bit more refinement is in the terms of portfolio analysis in terms of FTEs, not hours. To many folks that is the key, driving metric that wants to be measured. The number of required FTEs, compared to the FTEs capacity. They do a good job of aggregating the data by hours, but there is not intrinsic metric for FTEs. Units are shown in the project plans...just extend that value into the cubes for enhanced business intelligence value.
