Innovative Portfolio Management for OCS

The Office of Coast Survey (OCS) provides navigation products and information for transportation safety. Lynker provides Enterprise Project and Portfolio Management support, helping OCS effectively manage their entire portfolio of projects. Lynker began by creating the structure to support the establishment of an enterprise level PMO. We then developed an innovative portfolio management and project life-cycle process supported by a SharePoint-based dashboard to provide OCS with portfolio level insight. The interactive dashboard has enabled overall IT improvement, mission alignment, investment review, value measurement and decision making. The dashboard has been adopted across OCS on more than 100 projects.
