Project delivery is not just about good project management; successful projects are managed around business outcomes and ensures benefits have been realised and the required organisational change to adopt the new system or functionality has taken place.
Why you need it
Managing the effective delivery of change is the essence of project management. It is not just about managing the change in technology. It involves managing the environment in which this change takes place, making it as seamless as possible for end users and dealing with issues as they arise. The project manager and sponsor should prepare all parties for the change and once the project is nearing completion, ensure an effective handover to the business and IT staff supporting the change.
How it works
- Prioritising and alignment of IT investments by the executive team for effective delivery and ongoing management.
- Establishment of a function and discipline to actively monitor the progress of projects and programmes of work, reporting on progress to key stakeholders.
- Invest in project management skills and disciplines to ensure that projects deliver business value and expected benefits.
- Establish a continuous improvement culture to ensure that learnings from implemented projects are used to improve decision making in the future.
