If you take a step back and review the roles set-up within your organisation, it can be suggested that it’s not just those with the official title of project manager who manage the day-to-day projects within your business.
Imagine the productivity increase that could be achieved for your business if you placed your staff on training that would allow them to understand fundamental project management groundings that they can then adapt to their role.
In our first article of the ‘Introduction to Project Management Series’, we will focus on the benefits of a common project approach. Other articles in the series will address project success, the overall philosophy of project management and managing key project parameters.
4 key benefits of an overarching project management approach
- Improved Consistency. A fit for purpose project management framework (aligned with best practice) for planning and controlling the delivery of projects can be used consistently by all staff across the organisation and easily applied by contractors/vendors.
- Increased Scalability. A flexible framework can be tailored to project size, complexity and relative risk, meaning the right level of information, documents and decision-making for your different types of projects.
- Greater Manageability. The focus here is facilitating the decomposition of project work into more manageable elements, instead of being faced with a daunting ‘mountain’ of work.
- Improved Efficiencies. A consistent approach delivers value by saving time, thereby reducing costs. Clearly defined areas of accountability and responsibility removes duplication of work and clears the way for effective stakeholder communications and reporting.
