Learning Software: Managing Growth through Governance
Faced with rapid growth, a leading provider of language learning software needed to better align resources in support of strategic goals. The company turned to Infinitive as its transformation partner and to enhance performance through improved governance and project management.
Infinitive consultants established a program management office (PMO) to implement governance and controls for the growing organization. For the PMO, Infinitive implemented best practices-based processes for program selection, prioritization, and coordination. Proactive stakeholder involvement and consistent monitoring and reporting helped establish increased accountability for the near-term change and improved program performance moving forward.
In addition to governance, the PMO enabled improved project management capabilities throughout the organization by providing training, support, tools and best practices to project managers.
Thanks to its PMO, the language learning software provider saw immediate and substantial gains in program performance and resource alignment toward strategic goals. Consistent, data-driven reporting enabled the PMO to make fact-based decisions, monitor program performance and effectively govern the complete company portfolio. With its newfound ability to focus on strategic initiatives and improved project performance, the client is well positioned for further growth.
“Infinitive people are all smart, very driven, organized and committed to making change happen. They help keep our teams focused when there are many ways to get off track.” Senior Director, Learning Software Provider
