Safety is King


As an experienced Energy Development company your track record on safety is something to protect and defend with strong process adherence and exacting standards. However, a safety incident on one of your projects has the potential to shut down the whole business.

If an incident occurred are you prepared for the follow up investigation from the local Health and Safety body?  The investigation whilst initially localised to that wind farm, may require you to demonstrate compliance across all your projects. As a body, the Health and Safety authority may need to be satisfied that your company not only kept a clear record of Safety Regulations, but able to demonstrate compliance for all sites.

Enverian Developer is a solution that has a built in paper or audit trail for all project activity and we were delighted to have been able to help a client in such a critical area of their business. Health and Safety is the most important area for any business and our solution has shown it can play a key role in meeting the needs of an inspection from the authorities. As well as being able to Track, Rank, and Value your projects, being able to access such business critical information in one central solution is the essence of why we developed Enverian Developer.

You can read our case study for more details.

One Version of the Truth


I’m Bernard Carroll, co-founder of Enverian.

I have spent over 20 years managing and delivering projects and portfolios in the IT, Pharma, Medical Devices and Utilities sectors.

During that time I have learned (the hard way!) that Portfolio Project Management (PPM) isn’t easy to deliver consistently, systematically and assuredly!

In this series of 5 blogs I’m going to highlight a number of PPM challenges, individually selected to illustrate an aspect of PPM that most people find challenging and then to give my view (backed up with a video) to show rather than tell how the challenge can be addressed.

The 5 blogs are…

1. The Dreaded Ping

2. Consolidate the Portfolio

3. One Version of the Truth

4. I’m a Project Manager…get me outta here!

5. PPM doesn’t come cheap! Right?

In the previous blog I looked at Consolidate the Portfolio. Here follows Blog #3.

 

3. One Version of the Truth

As a project manager, my credibility and reputation as a competent and professional practitioner was dependent on my ability to establish a single version of the truth: be it finance, resourcing, risk management or any other area of concern to the project.

At the project level it is complex: at the portfolio level it can be almost impossible.

This is why we created Enverian PPM (Portfolio Project Management).

In just 3 minutes, I can show you how Enverian PPM incorporates original project business case, linked to back-end corporate finance systems to track, manage and harmonise project finances from project inception to close out.

2. Consolidate the Portfolio

Every project manager has their own way of managing projects. Even methodologies such as PMI, PMP, PRINCE are implemented and approached differently across and within organisations.

The challenge is how to take these various different project plans and consolidate them in a structured and standardised manner to achieve an accurate portfolio view.

This is why I created Enverian PPM – to overcome these challenges – consistently, systematically, assuredly!

In just 3 minutes, I can show you how Enverian PPM is the tool to import, extract and consolidate individual project plans and build a portfolio view of all projects across the organisation.
