Project Management

As your business faces opportunities and challenges, project management becomes a fundamental business competency in order to achieve business objectives. Despite the importance of project management, it is well documented that success rates for project initiatives today are dismal. Although project management competencies are maturing, many organizations still experience the following results:

  • Projects run over budget and behind schedule
  • Projects do not deliver the expected results; or even fail
  • Projects are executed without a proven approach
  • Projects lack accountability
  • Project success is not well defined
  • Projects are not linked to corporate strategies and objectives
  • Projects do not have a measurable Return on Investment
