Project Management to Drive Agility
We have project management experience with projects up to $10,000,000, but we are particularly skilled at small project management. We believe that successive small projects are the best way to drive lasting organizational change. Each project builds on the success and knowledge from previous projects. Our “agile is good” approach to project management is especially valuable for digital transformations. Our clients build confidence, staff are engaged and empowered, organization changes stick and passive aggressive change resistance is minimized.
We don’t stop once a project is complete, we will train your team on new technologies and new work flow processes.
Project management is more than science: it’s an art
The science behind project management is well documented and tooled. Planning, estimating, measuring and controlling the process are all essential tasks for any successful project. People and tasks must be tracked, and alerts sent out when things start to go wrong. The hope is that by doing so your projects will stay on the right track. There are many great tools to help you with this; some of our preferences are ConnectWise and MS Project.
Sadly these tools won’t guarantee flawless delivery or completion, because project management is an art. The project manager has to lead, motivate, communicate, and enable his/her team with everything they need to get their tasks done. The project manager has to be able to react quickly and intuitively, to see the truth and where the project is in each unique situation.
Project Manager: diplomat and communications expert
Flexibility is crucial as project requirements change on the drop of a hat, they almost always do. When your budget starts to grow, deliverables start to come in late and with glitches, it’s easy to panic and become stressed.
However here are some tips to put everything back on track:
- Re-evaluate the current project status and define the new problems that have arisen
- Refine your plan and the indicators which you are using to monitor progress based on these new insights
- Finally communicate with shareholders and your project team explaining the process of your new direction
During the process of any project, it’s hard to step back and gain perspective when you’re struggling to complete tasks on time, panicking or experiencing delays, but don’t forget to celebrate the small victories and keep an eye on the road ahead.
Remember to remain flexible and keep moving towards your goal. With these things in mind, a successful completion will become a reality.
