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.
