Unleashing the Full Power of Project Management to Compete and Collaborate

To gain the full power of project management the CEO must demand that:

  • Project portfolio management fully supports the organization's growth strategies.
  • A coherent project management process exists and is fully understood.
  • This process and the supporting systems and tools are fully integrated with corporate policies, procedures and systems.
  • The Internet and World Wide Web are used properly in the daily project management operations.

The more detailed demands that must be made are identified in the remainder of this paper. When these demands are fulfilled the results will provide a significant competitive advantage to the organization in today's world of Internet speed. They will also enable the organization to collaborate effectively with customers, suppliers, government and other controlling agencies, and even direct competitors, as required in this Internet Age.
