Tailor-made project management solutions rather then off-the-shelf approaches.
Classic or agile Project Management? Why not both?
For decades we have further developed, adopted and simplified our approach to project management, enabling us to customize Project Management tools and standards to any organizational context.
Today, projects are an integral part of every organization. They are implemented to create a unique business value, e.g. creating a new product line or improving operational process. Projects can be very different in their nature and purpose. Nowadays, there are numerous project management methodologies in the market, but at times these methodologies prove to be a problem rather than the solution due to complexity, rigidness and lack of user-friendliness. Often, customized project management toolkits serve organizational needs best. Instead of a sequential processes, sometimes it is important to use an agile methodology, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration of self-organizing cross-functional teams.
Some organisations respond very well to agile project management, others prefer classic project management. We strongly believe in customized project management solutions, often combining modern and classic tools in a hybrid solution.
Designing, developing and establishing an organizational framework for project management needs to ensure that people, processes, organizational culture and systems are in sync.
Our tailor-made solutions identify, prioritize and address pain points across these areas and include:
PM related terminology, roles, tools and standards
Many international organizations work across geographies, cultures and languages. We facilitate the development of a common terminology (“lingua franca”) on project related maters to support collaboration across teams and functions.
Common methods, guiding questions and tools for the initiation, planning, implementation and evaluation of projects shorten the warm up phase of project teams and are particularly valuable for cross-functional and intercultural collaboration.
Introducing and establishing agile Project ManagementIn a dynamic, complex and fast changing environment, the effectiveness of classic project management methods can reach their limits. To grow and to remain competitive, companies have to have the capability to deliver more change of greater scope more quickly and effectively than ever before. We train agile approaches like SCRUM, KANBAN or agile SPACE on actual real-life projects of our clients, provide project coaching and facilitation support.
