How to Use Project Management to Help Your Clients Do More with Less
Jeff Oltmann, Synergy Professonal Services
You and your clients can't afford to be part of the 86%.
Your project doesn't have to be one of the eighty-six percent that are late and over budget. You and your clients cannot survive such big project failures.
You can deliver vital projects on time and on budget using project management techniques. Applied with a balance of flexibility and discipline, these procedures substantially increase your project success rates.
Your goal is to help your clients improve their business results. Teach your clients how to apply project management techniques in a way that is appropriate to their business. You will give them powerful tools that increase their operational excellence, both now and in the future.
You also have your own projects to manage – the consulting projects that are the lifeblood of your business. Just as your clients will get better results when they use these methods on their projects, your business will benefit when you do the same thing. Your consulting engagements will go better when you manage the engagement using project management best practices.
In this talk, we will cover:
Does project management really produce results?
Four foundational steps that every project, big or small, should follow
Six characteristics that successful projects share, as well as common mistakes
How project management synchronizes with other management systems, including market planning, strategic planning and operations management
Tools and techniques that you can use to make your projects more successful in each of the four steps.
