TOO MANY EMAILS In today’s world, you and your colleagues attempt to manage meetings, action items, strategic plans, and almost every other aspect of business with information shared via email. It’s also true that many have learned their email skills by default rather than via specific training. While many people have good writing skills, effective communication techniques, technical know-how, or organizational strengths, few have considered how to combine and apply these talents holistically using a collaborative tool that involves all stakeholders and removes chaos.
It is a daily challenge for managers to ensure that all stakeholders are informed up to the minute. Emails can be lost, misdirected, or forgotten. Constant visibility and traceability to pertinent documents, up to the minute milestone status, tracking issues quickly to resolution, and adapting instantly to changes: these features are essential to a complex program’s ongoing success. Wildflower found that the currently available tools, while useful, provided only static snapshots that its program and project managers struggled to keep relevant, while also keeping their clients and partners in the know.
The VPMi tool provides a comprehensive and collaborative program environment in which all stakeholders have visibility and voice. Wildflower implemented VPMi as a way to move beyond simply conforming to industry standards. Any well positioned company can conform; this is a secure web-based application and requires no software for the user. The VPMi user environment is 100% web-based, running on a robust and secure Oracle database. There are no client requirements other than a computer with a web browser. The majority of the processing is done in the database and on the web server.
The VPMi suite:
1. Manages people’s schedules effectively and avoids disruption
2. Manages budgets
3. Ensures high quality deployment activities and clean transition
4. Addresses anomalies that might otherwise affect logistics and plans
5. Provides for change management
6. Keeps stakeholders engaged
7. Delivers success
