Real Business Change Needs to Planned & Project Managed

In recent years, businesses and organisations of all sizes have turned to and embraced project management as a mechanism for adapting to and managing of all forms of change.

Despite a growing range of Project Management methodologies, software, tools, training and standards – businesses continue to struggle with low success rates for change and project management.

Project management is about managing change to achieve a specific set of objective, deliverables within a finite timescale and budget. Irrespective of industry or specialism, it is about the application of processes, methods, skills, knowledge and experience to achieve the project objectives.

An astonishing 70% of Business transformation projects fail.

When to use a Project Management Approach

Project Management is commonly used to effect some change with a clearly defined goal and end date.  Managed Projects are widely used in both the private and public sector across a wider range of circumstances including:

  • To produce something new (technology, product, service, approach etc) or altered (process, system , organisation, structure, system change request, etc)
  • To achieve a certain objective with a clear start and finish
  • Manage some form of change
  • Manage a specific risk
  • Manage complexity in people, process or systems
  • Manage complexity such as multi groups, departments, silos
