Themes for Success
Optimize Your Portfolio
If you are not making decisions using objective criteria and quality data, then how are you doing it?
Using a clear methodology removes ‘gaming’ from the prioritization process and selection of change projects. A reduction in ambiguity would help ensure that the most important strategic projects are prioritized.
Connect Executives & Delivery Teams
Why aren’t the Executive Teams more closely aligned with those delivering projects?
Results will improve when there is a closer understanding and working arrangement.
Apply Risk Management
If you aren’t spotting the risky problems as they arise how can you manage them?
Projects must measure progress, identify risks and tackle the difficult issues, changing course where necessary.
As new business and project challenges arise how can PMs help their organizations adapt effectively?
Be more agile in approach – Inspect and Adapt.
Structure, process and planning help, but it is people that deliver projects – why don’t they do it really well, more often?
