When You Don’t Have Time To Waste…
As a manager or leader, you are responsible for delivering bottom-line results for your organization. It is frustrating to see these things happen to your project, your department, or any part of your company:
- Starting new computer system projects that deliver results late or not at all
- Introducing business improvement ideas that your staff never actually put to use
- Writing strategic plans that sit on the shelf, gathering dust
- Watching different departments work against each other, losing sight of their common goals
“Alex is like a Master Mechanic for projects. He fixes the obvious problem, then tunes all of the important parts to make sure everything is running at it’s best.”
It is frustrating to watch communication and coordination problems sap energy from your staff. These problems hurt the productivity of staff, project managers, department managers, and senior executives alike. They hurt the revenue, expenses, and profit of your company.
People in your organization may say, “It is human nature. It is impossible to change.” Your business does not have to be like this; there is hope.
Your company can achieve its goals. Your staff can set, plan for, and achieve targeted goals. The right projects can be started at the right time and deliver results. Management and team members can cooperate across department lines. With discipline, your teams can all work together towards common goals and achieve a common vision. Strategic goals can become something you accomplish, not something you put on a shelf. Companies like yours have seen wave after wave of improvements over many years, using project management.
Planning takes discipline and commitment. Many companies try quick fixes for their problems, and are disappointed with their results. Many consulting firms are selling an “Instant PMO,” a “PMO in a box,” or jargon-filled project management methodologies. These firms provide a great sales pitch for their services, but then send junior, inexperienced people to force-fit their methodology into the company culture. Sometimes they are successful, but more often they fail to deliver. Sometimes the new methods work for a short period of time, but fail after the consultants leave.
“Alex challenged me to be a better project manager.”
Your company needs an adviser with real-life experience. You will be able to see substantial, long-term improvements in the areas that matter most to your organization. Real change is based on techniques that match your company culture and goals. An experienced adviser can help select the right techniques to quickly show bottom-line results, and to ensure that these improvements will last for years or decades, not months.
