Organisations embark on projects on the understanding that there will be some tangible benefit on the investment made. Most projects realise their business benefits but not in the time-scale or level of investment envisaged at the outset.
One reason for this is that many people are assigned the role of Project Manager simply because they have the word ‘Manager’ in their previous job title.
Project Management is a profession just as accountancy is. The key to successful projects is a successful Project Manager. Whilst there is no replacement for experience, techniques and systematic approaches can be taught.
WPM’s preferred Project Management methodology is PRINCE2, the methodology commissioned and extensively used by the UK Government – now the defacto Project Management methodology for many public and private sector organisations.
The key feature of PRINCE2 is its flexibility and freedom to tune it to suit the business needs of the organisation undertaking the project and to integrate it to existing processes, procedures and standards.
However, it is not a panacea. The methodology will not, on its own magically produce a successful project – but it does provide a framework for success. Success though is dependant on the Project Manager applying its principles and drawing from experience that only years of practise can bring.
