Implementing CPPM: Keep it Simple, Do it Well, and Win!

Texas State University
Presented by Andrea Tutoki

Session Description
This will be a session about the benefits of a limited or “Proof of Concept” implementation. By focusing solely on the successful implementation of a single Capital Project Type with streamlined processes (staying out of the weeds), TSU is able to stay focused, keep the implementation scope in check, and get the finish line faster. TSU is quickly getting their small projects team off of spreadsheets—and using AiM efficiently and consistently. From there, TSU will tackle the bigger capital project workflows and expand the implementation.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Change management is about people. It’s reasonable to expect that AiM CPPM will transform your organization into a more efficient, streamlined and cost-effective unit with valuable metrics and financial reporting at your fingertips. However, to be successful, the implementation team must be willing to embrace change. When problematic processes are in place, it is typically the organization’s culture that has dictated the process.
  2. Land and expand. Capital project management is complex; AiM CPPM can be implemented as deep and as wide as an organization wants to go. Tackling too much at once is time consuming, costly, and can leave your implementation team overwhelmed and frustrated. Keep the implementation manageable with a single capital project type (land). Once you have the basic system implemented, move forward with additional project types and features (expand)!
  3. Keep it Simple. Start with basic, high-level processes. It’s a relatively simple matter to augment processes and implement new features in AiM as your organization evolves. Conversely, it’s difficult for an organization “un-wind” overly complex, cumbersome processes in AiM after go-live; users won’t want to relearn how to use the system.
