Enterprise reporting aggregates information across all projects to provide an enterprise view of the project portfolio. This sounds easy but the competing demands of minimizing the administrative burden of data collection and ensuring consistent, accurate and meaningful data are collected require a well planned approach to the key metrics reported and the reporting process. We work with you to assess the key performance indicators and formulate a set of project metrics that affect the key performance indicators. The result is a dashboard that is tightly aligned with the enterprise objectives and connected to the underlying projects.
