All organizations concern themselves with project management. But not everyone is able to organize under common project methods, – language and -leadership methods. This affects the effectiveness and effect of their projects. With a general project management template or a best practice, you get a uniform project language and direction that increases the quality of the projects.
Project management and not least the title “project manager” can be a broad term with many entry points, schools and self-appointments. For this reason, many organizations have a need to organize themselves under one common type of approach or project-model, so everyone speaks the same language and refers to the same methods, processes and documents. In other words: a common project culture. Best practices such as PRINCE2® and IPMA® are different well-tested and well-documented ways to manage projects so they achieve the best results. When we work with project management our priority therefore always lies in securing a common project language within the organization, while at the same time taking as a starting point the things that work well in the organization and complement the existing model.
What are the benefits?
With best practice project management, you snuff out anarchistic projects and gain an internationally established project practice, which can be tailored to suit your current organization and can develop concurrently with your ambitions. A dedicated best practice approach to project culture can thus give you:
- More effective projects.
- Healthier business cases.
- Scalable project methods.
