What Acuity PPM is Really About

Acuity PPM is more than just a software vendor. We understand that successful portfolio management involves more than just tools; companies need the right people and processes with a great solution in order to deliver results.

That’s why our focus is to provide you holistic solutions that include:

  • Great PMO software from Acuity PPM that is easy to use (and free to get started).
  • Expert consultants who have established PPM processes (work intake, prioritization, governance, phase-gate, capacity planning, etc.) and PMO’s at Fortune 500 companies who can navigate cultural challenges and lead people through the change process. Our consulting services extend far beyond simply implementing a software solution.
  • Talented and vetted project team members to fill in resource gaps on your project teams.

Very few companies have the internal expertise to make this all work in harmony and find lasting success; that’s why we are advocates for holistic solutions and provide “software with services” to make sure you are successful.

Our Story

Not long ago, Senior IT leaders from a Fortune 500 company purchased complex portfolio management software with the hopes of understanding resource capacity and utilization to improve project success. They thought the software would answer their questions.

Once the software was implemented, senior leadership did not realize how much work it took to get good data and questioned the data that did exist. There was inadequate internal support to make the implementation successful, and the vendor was unable to provide good direction on how best to manage resources. Furthermore, user adoption was poor because end users hated the software since it was hard to navigate and required a lot of effort to use. After burning a million dollars, they gave up on the software and eventually disbanded their PMO.

This is not an isolated incident. We’ve seen this story play out numerous times. In most cases, it’s all avoidable. We hate to see companies waste their time and money, lower morale, and fail to accomplish strategic goals. That’s why we exist, to help you build an enduring project organization that delivers real value.
