Having the ability to compare all proposed projects enables management to make more informed decisions about the ones that should be funded to make optimal use of the available resources. The interactive waterline overview allows portfolio and program managers to drag and drop proposed projects above the waterline and immediately see the total effort, cost value and ROI of these projects.
Once projects are approved, 4me offers a number of real-time overviews that can be filtered by program. The objective is to warn portfolio and program managers as early as possible of issues with their projects. 4me relies on the Earned Value Management (EVM) methodology. EVM is extremely powerful, mainly because it exposes issues with projects at an early stage.
