Enterprise Consulting

  •   Overview   

    Paragon’s Enterprise Consulting Services enable organizations to define and implement high-performing strategies, Enterprise Information Technology capabilities, and service delivery models that serve immediate business needs as well as provide for growth and ongoing innovation. 

    We help:

    • Methodically and flexibly manage resources in a way that drives organizational performance and ensures compliance
    • Provide technical infrastructure, capabilities, and support that makes sure each business function can work effectively 
    • Swiftly and seamlessly complete key integration or divestiture activities that occur as part of a merger, acquisition or divestiture, while remediating risks and issues
    • Design a strategy that ensures predictable, high-performance in your leadership team to achieve your company’s most important goals
  •   Project Portfolio Management   

    For businesses that are responsible for many concurrent projects, the Project Portfolio Management (PPM) role oversees performance and investments for programs across the organization. Where Enterprise Project Management (EPM) focuses on performance for a single project area or group of related projects, PPM is about making investment decisions on which projects to keep, fix, hold or cut broadly across the enterprise. Successful PPM hinges on measurability and transparency.

    Paragon works with organizations to establish a consistent framework for effectively managing performance across large-scale investment portfolios. Our approach provides the visibility required to separate projects that are working from those that aren’t so the organization can focus resources only on the most successful programs which are best-aligned with overall business goals. We help Project Management Office (PMO) Directors focus limited project management resources on the metrics that matter most so they can bring the most value to the organization. 

    Our PPM team can help you:

    • Identify transparent metrics to support strategic decision-making at every step, across the portfolio
    • Improve manageability for program targets that were previously difficult to meet
    • Standardize reporting criteria to track finances, time and resources
    • Establish a clear path to process improvement, across projects and programs
    • Understand actionable ways to improve efficiency (reduced spend, increased success metrics)
    • Improve preparedness to manage current demand and future resource needs
    • Give you specific, measurable actions for short, medium and long-term improvements
    • Gain insight into the portfolio to ensure resources are being spent in a way that compliments overall organizational strategies
    • Create an “at-a-glance” view of the current state of your PMO with fresh, objective views on areas of improvement, excellence and growth opportunities
    • Ensure the consistency and follow through of benefits realized from project investments

     

  •   Enterprise IT   

    Maximizing your company’s return on enterprise information technology requires a thoughtful strategy. We merge our business expertise with technical knowledge to make sure your organization has the technology that is best suited to support your strategy and goals.

    The fundamental purpose of an enterprise IT organization can be broken into two parts:

    • To provide technical infrastructure, capabilities, and support that makes sure each business function can work effectively
    • To operate as a strategic function that identifies opportunities for IT to enhance the organizational strategy

    Paragon helps businesses gain competitive advantage by delivering both of these parts properly. Our approach enables your enterprise to stay ahead of the technology curve. We create custom environments that take advantage of cloud and mobile so your employees can work from anywhere. We also specialize in using big data in conjunction with ITIL, and we build out Collaboration & Knowledge Management (CKM) applications so your enterprise can benefit from access to centralized information. All of this means that we can rapidly develop effective models for the kind of IT service delivery that is just right for your company.
