Methodology Development

The Problem

Many organisations either have no standard approach to project management, or else have developed ad hoc methods that address specific concerns but which are not easily extensible or integrated into other aspects of the business. Other organisations may have well developed but diverse project management approaches in some parts of the organisation which don't integrate well, while other parts are poorly served.

The Solution

In a recent survey, organisations that had adopted a standard project management method were found to have realized a 63% improvement in delivering projects successfully. Our consultants have contributed to project management method improvements in Federal, State and Local Government; multinationals; industrial and engineering companies; universities; and not-for-profit organisations.

When implementing portfolio, programme or project (P3) management methods into an organisation, we factor in existing good practices that are widely accepted. Implementation is a collaborative process, with final management method ownership in the hands of a core group of client staff. Our management method implementation approaches are designed to foster acceptance and make the adoption of a standard method welcomed within your project culture.

P3 Management Method Development

We are experts in helping organisations adopt a standard management method for their projects, programmes and enterprise project portfolios. We have developed a robust approach that ensures organisational ownership of the methods from Day 1. We base our work on global standards such as MoP ® portfolio management, MSP ® programme management, PRINCE2 ® project management, M_o_R ® risk management, MoV ® value management. We ensure that the methods we create integrate into related processes such as bidding and workflow systems, risk and financial tools, HR policies and quality controls.

We begin by reviewing your project management environment. We then identify areas which would benefit from enhancement and tighter integration with other management processes. Leveraging our experience and best practice guidance, we select and tailor the appropriate content to fit your desired organisational objectives and cultural norms. Working with your team, we make sure the resulting P3RM management method has a look and feel that fits with your organisational 'brand'.

Management Method Deployment and Ongoing Support

If not supported, a new management method may not be adopted and embedded in daily practice. To successfully launch a new management method in an organisation, we work in collaboration with our client's core team to develop an appropriate deployment plan that ranges from conducting pilots through to phased or full-scale rollout, depending on organisational size and complexity. The deployment plan includes the delivery of management method workshops led by our methodology consultants. Coaches are also available to work one-on-one with your staff on specific projects to ensure that the new management methods are properly put into practice.
