Integrated Program Management

What is an integrated program?

Projects, Operations, and Analytics

Organizations who separate the teams and tools used for project management, department operations, and analytics end up challenged by the number of tools they need maintain. An Integrated Programs approach uses the same platform to plan and execute projects alongside tracking critical business operations and displaying key data together on an actionable program dashboard.

Example Integrated Program Dashboard

The Program Dashboard is the peak of the information pyramid. Every piece of project, operation, or analytical data is one or two clicks away from this singular view.

Analytics Dashboard Links

The top section includes a one-click drill down into key operational dashboards.

Team Dashboard Links

Each team has their own information hub with key resources and links.

Critical Exceptions

Any metrics that indicate immediate action is required or fall outside acceptable levels are pulled from the operational dashboards and displayed at the program level.

Active Projects

Project timelines with status, owners, and critical issues. Project plans linked directly to each line.


Department operations linked directly to the workspace or platform. Includes owners, backups, update frequency, and critical exceptions.

The Is Inspired Approach

We work with experienced project leads.

The Is Inspired team is composed of industry veterans and domain specialists. We work closely with client and vendor teams to define requirements clearly, build detailed plans, and execute effectively. 

We use best practices and collaborative tools.

All of our implementation projects are delivered using collaborative work management platforms that provide your team with real time visibility into business requirements development, project execution status, risk and issue management, user acceptance testing, and other mission-critical components.

Strategic Planning

Every business, large or small, benefits from developing and documenting a strategic plan. The strategic plans we develop together are:

  • Visual - A living map, not just a static document.
  • Concise - Includes critical information only. No fluff. No filler.
  • Comprehensive - Covers planning and decision making from all angles.
  • Executable - Broken down into defined packages that can be worked on and completed.

Business Process Engineering

Process mapping is key to understanding and communicating around business operations. We map business processes in order in increase effectiveness, improve efficiency, and identify areas for improvement. The process management and modeling we do is:

  • Collaborative - Everyone involved in a process has input on how it is done currently and how it could be improved.
  • Scaleable - Process architecture and modeling needs are different for teams of different sizes.

Integrated Project Management

Teams of any size are at their best when individual members can understand and take ownership of their parts of a project.  The projects plans we build are:

  • Integrated - Work completed 'in platform' makes real time reporting automatic.
  • Flexible - Intelligently manage trade offs between budget, scope, and schedule.
  • Risk Based - Realistic risk management practices built into budgets and schedules.
  • Visually Organized - Information hierarchy helps team members understand their role and responsibilities.
