Development team utilization measures are rarely used in making project portfolio tradeoffs. We know why.

Wrong Project Priorities ?

Portfolio priorities should be based on objective data and risk assessment. Tradeoffs require a scoring and visualization toolset like On-Fire's Capacity Management Template (CMT) and Portfolio Valuation Template (PVT).

The PVT implements the Analytic Hierarchy Process, a proven branch of multi-criteria decision theory.

Find out how on-time delivery and productivity improves with On-Fire's CMT and PVT tools. Request a free demo version of each.

 

 

Customer testimonial

"On-Fire's capacity management technology proved that our organization badly over-drove the development resources. This chronic condition masked poor individual performance that contributed to schedule slippage and poor productivity. With On-Fire's help, we were able to identify and solve both problems."

David Duehren, CTO, Brooktrout Technology
