Imagine the ability to look into the future of a project and make risk-based decisions to reduce its complexity and budget.
Today, you can do just that with GEM by JTS. Implementation and updating of modern IT-based business systems (i.e. software, databases, networks) with integrated architectures and technologies is a recurring and complex engineering challenge that significantly impacts an organization’s policies, procedures, and structure. Typically, organizations face challenges identifying and resolving inherit business and technical risks to scope, plan, manage, and deliver a large complex IT systems development project or in providing sustainment or upgrades to systems.
To assist today’s Project Management Organization (PMO) to reduce these inherent challenges within a complex IT system, Joint Technology Solution, Inc. (JTS) has collaborated with our industry partners to leverage individual and corporate capabilities into an integrated, holistic life-cycle framework — the Governance and Engagement Model (GEM).
Experience improved project management with transparent, risk-reduced planning.
GEM empowers teams to:
- Prioritize investments so that projects can be fully funded and it is clear where projects stand in relation to the overall portfolio.
- Follow an evolutionary path toward meeting mission needs rather than attempting to satisfy all needs in a single step.
- Match requirements to resources—that is time, money, technology, and people—before undertaking new development efforts.
- Research and define requirements before starting programs and limit changes after they are started.
- Ensure that cost estimates are complete, accurate, and updated regularly. Commit to fully fund projects before they begin.
- Ensure that critical technologies are proven to work as intended before programs begin.
- Assign more ambitious technology development efforts to research departments until they are ready to be added to future generations (or increments) of a product.
- Use systems engineering to close gaps between resources and requirements before launching the development process.
- Reduce program risk over time and increase deliverable quality as uncertainty is squeezed out.
