Project Management Consulting: Change Doesn't Have To Be Painful
One permanent fact in any field during the digital age is that change is ceaseless. This has been said so much that it's almost repetitive nowadays. The question is what, if anything, are you and your organization doing about it.
Is your project plan equipped to adapt to the ongoing changes and if not then that needs to be addressed within your overall strategic project management plan otherwise you will be moving at a snail's pace when all you other competitors are moving like the archetypal rabbit.
Next you need to fuss about having very clear goals set forth and communicated to your team members. There's nothing like having a project with no clear leadership or vision and having it fall apart at the seams. Result? Wasting millions of dollars of company equipment as well as the lives of many of the employees.
Although the previous scenario might seem a sad it is actually very prevalent within many big companies especially. Without having a clear vision for a project it will not get anywhere.
The next step is to really prioritize the projects within your company. No matter how deep of a pocket your organization has, you will not be able to do everything equally well. Therefore you need to decide which projects are actually critical to not only the sustainability of your company but the long-term growth and prosperity of your shareholders as well.
Once you've decided which project or projects to work on you will then need to set written goals and strict timetables as a whole. Next, it's fundamental to delegate the appropriate tasks to the corresponding specialists that will be responsible for making those particular milestones. Have meetings with your core constituencies in order to make sure that the project plan is as comprehensive as possible without slowing the overall productivity of your group.
Finally you just want to make sure that you have those postmortems and also incorporate project risk management plans where necessary.
