Read the exclusive interview with Heppner's Group Projects Manager.
Two resources are available: the video interview and the report:
In the supply chain, digital transformation is a top priority. Data is a crucial element in tracing goods and keeping customers and final recipients informed. Heppner is also proactive in the ecological transition. These challenges around digital and ecological transformation bring with them many structuring strategic projects. The challenge is to be able to arbitrate the launch of projects according to the capacity of the teams to handle the workload. The need therefore arose to professionalize project management: framing and selection processes for projects to be validated, portfolio management, community coordination and tooling.
"We had a tool to see past workloads, but we had no vision of the workload to be planned. We couldn't factualize and anticipate the workload in relation to the projects to be carried out. We had a tendency to accept all projects despite warnings from the teams: we're not sure but it'll pass!"
Project Monitor responded to these challenges with its resource management and project portfolio management functions:
The tool is used across all departments:
Project Monitor standardizes work methodologies and brings greater transparency to teams' ability to monitor workloads. The software helps to align teams, managers and management. In terms of Group objectives, the tool enables us to better pilot our resources to ensure that we put our efforts in the right place, in line with our strategy.
