This post has help us to review the different solutions provided by the big vendors of PMO industry.
We do not provide a closed or software solution, what we provide is a customized solution compose by processes, people and tools.
Tools, this was one of the things that appeared in the SWOT analysis we performed. After that analysis I asked Fran to look for the different tools that we need to learn about and add them as alternatives when answering RFPs. The win/loss review after one proposal we loose determined that one of the weaknesses of the proposal was an inadequate toolset.
The analysis performed by Fran is very good, now we are closed to finish all the documentation of the Solution.
The important thing again is place the solution on real proposals to see if the solution is very good or if it’s not adequate. That’s the way to see if we are competitive or not.
