Minimize the impact of change, improve visibility, and enhance collaboration with enterprise project portfolio management solutions.
According to a recent survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by Oracle, only 51% of project owners rated themselves as effective at delivering their projects to scope, budget, and schedule when confronted with change. In addition only 43% rated themselves as effective at anticipating potential change.
Even with the best processes and technology in place change is often an unavoidable part of the construction process. How your company responds to change can mean the difference between delays and cost overruns, and projects being completed on schedule and on budget.
Join Oracle and the Economist Intelligence Unit for a webcast and learn best practices and how other project owners in the oil and gas industry are managing change. Along with revealing the results of the recent survey, Building in Change: Project Construction in Asset-Intensive Industries, you'll also hear how an enterprise project portfolio management solution can help your company.
