Project Portfolio Management

To ensure the effective implementation of a plan, it is necessary to have qualified monitoring of planned activities.

The Votorantim Institute guides the companies in the management of their project portfolio and offers technical support, tools and systems to monitor the progress of the activities, milestones and results of each project.

When there are deviations from the plan, we seek the root cause of the problems and determine the implementation of corrective actions to regularize the progress of the project. All this can be followed and managed in an online platform.

Management tools

The Votorantim Institute acts as a nucleus of social strategy and as a guide and driver of the social performance of Votorantim companies.

With tools and methodologies, it plays the role of social hub and establishes relationships among partners, companies and communities, identifying possible threats as well as levers for new businesses.

All Social Strategic Management is structured in four stages: Social Performance Planning and Partnership Identification (P); Contracting, Formalization, Project Execution and Partnership Initiatives (D); Project and Portfolio Monitoring and Partnership Management (C); Impact Assessment and Knowledge Management (A).

The Institute outlines the entire social strategy based on the companies’ schedule of activities, to systematize the initiatives according to Votorantim’s calendar in each location.

(PLANNING METHODOLOGY –CORPORATE SOCIAL INVESTMENT GUIDE)

The monitoring of each stage, through the contracting and formalization of social projects, is done through the Votorantim Social Project Managing System (GPSV, for its initials in Portuguese).

ACCESS THE GPSV RESTRICTED AREA

Through this system, it is possible to follow the life cycle of the programs and initiatives and, subsequently, to evaluate their impact and progress, as well as to measure the results of private social investments.

EVALUATION OF RESULTS AND IMPACT

An example of the use of this methodology was the Sustainable Primavera project, in Primavera, Pará, Brazil. The return yielded by this project was 4.5 times greater than the amount invested by Votorantim Cimentos, which benefited from the Institute’s expertise to achieve this result.
