Organizational Project Management

“Don't teach the car mechanics,but tell me how to drive and deal with the garage”

Why?

In many organizations projects regularly fail to deliver within budget and time, and do not always fully realize the expected benefits. Many executives have been confronted with projects that are more expensive and take longer than agreed and/or create serious operational issues at go live (supply chains that fail, business intelligence that is lost, etc.).Often, already at the start of a project, it is not clear whether the project is the right project at the right time to be undertaken and how we can be sure that the benefits are realized. This is due to the facts that (1) the baseline is often unclear, (2) the benefits are hard to quantify and (3) the benefits are often realized long after the corresponding project.

What?

A 4hr masterclass developed from our experience in managing business projects and based on the book: “Waar is de projectmanager toch mee bezig?” We follow a pragmatic approach, addressing your specific needs.

  • Understanding your project portfolio, and prioritize projects
  • How to assure that the benefits are realized
  • How to organize projects for success
  • How to identify and manage the project risks
  • Questions to ask, do’s and don’ts for executive management
  • Examples and use cases
  • How to setup a Project Management Organization in your company

The masterclass will discuss the whole project life cycle, from idea, via prioritization of projects and the execution of the projects to the realization of the benefits. We will focus on those areas that senior managers need to understand in order to ask the right questions to the project team.

For whom?

All (senior) business managers and directors that need or want to understand the real challenges in project management, and want to be educated to ask the right questions. Executive and non-executive boardmembers that want to understand the implications, risks and consequences, as sparringpartner for management.

How?

A half-day (4 hours) participative session, in-company, onsite, or by open enrolment, on how to steer projects in their organizations to ensure success and to harvest the predicted benefits.Open enrolment masterclasses are limited to 10 participants for maximum involvement. We advise on what questions to ask, do’s and don’ts, how to help, and inform on best practices for guiding projects, aligning the organization and preparing the workforce for the successful execution of projects.

The open enrolment masterclasses are to be held in locations that will be determined, centrally in The Netherlands. Easy to reach by car and public transport. Convenient starting and closing times.
