Discover the Missing Link in a Smooth, Successful Multi-Project Management
Project management is not without problems and issues that arise during the inception down to completion. Projects can go over budget, and fail to meet deadlines or deliver as expected. When a project fails to complete in time, it will become costly on paper. Multiply these many times over and what you get is the reality of a multi-project organisation.
While it is clear where the problems in multi-project management are coming from, the solutions that exist today are not enough to deal with the problem head-on. There seems to be a missing link.
There is a need for a much better system that is reliable and fast, allowing to complete more projects in less time. There are shortcomings even when the rules, measurements and behaviours required for the system are clear. It is often a miracle when an organisation manages to develop a structured way to run multiple projects despite limited resources. But with the help of this book – “Uwe Techt Projects That Flow, More Projects in Less Time”, an organisation can complete more projects with less stress, highly motivated people, and more satisfied customers.
It starts with a detailed outline of the many problems that come with project management, followed by tips on how to identify conditions where multi-project organisations can work faster, more reliably and more efficiently.
But the best part is exploring the advantage of using field-tested and well-proven path of a successful multi-project management. The Transformation chapter of this book is dedicated to transforming your business into the future of multi-project management from its current reality.
Using the five phases of the change process, you will be able to handle multiple projects, minus the stress, problems and issues. Of course, you need to be ready to change the way you run things because transformation could mean accepting that there are issues that need to be resolved.
The change process involves:
- Seeing the necessity for change
- Getting a clear idea of your objective for change
- Having assumptions that reaching the goal won’t be easy
- Developing tactics to reach your objective
- Taking caution seriously, and not ignore the things that should be taken into account
Don’t worry, it is understandable that transformation can be challenging. For one, you will have to deal and overcome resistance to change. This alone would require a different set of strategies.
This book provides different ideas for a smooth transition. In just five stages, you can turn a conventional multi-project organisation into a high-performance force to reckon with. This includes an implementation style that gets everyone involved. The idea of Projects That Flow, after all, is to eliminate some of the biggest and most common mistakes in multi-project management, such as micromanagement and failure to delegate.
