Project Management Office (PMO)
The usage of the term “PMO” increases for some years now in an inflationary manner. Sometimes one can’t help feeling that there’s lack of a clear definition, of clean distinction of the actual objectives, benefits, tasks etc., whereas a proper fitting PMO may offer huge chances. More about this…
Organizational Development for Project-Driven Business
What does Project-driven Business or even Project Economy mean?
Increasingly the creation of value does not happen any more merely in the classic company organization structure. The pressure towards flexibilization and specialization requires new forms of cooperation. Projects as temporary organization for the accomplishment of enterprise objectives overcome company boundaries in many cases.
Competitive companies are in want of resources and knowledge in order to be able to work in this way successfully.
- Optimized project management with method – if desired according to international
standards like PMI or PRINCE2
- Praxis-oriented training of your staff in the context of individual programs composed
jointly with you for your company
- Environmental development by identifying and eliminating organizational barriers
as well as integration of project- und daily business
- Projekt coaching in current projects supports your members of staff, thus keeping the
know-how within your company
Project Development within Innovation Cooperation
The new emerges from the combination of the already known. In a project economy the innovation happens more and more in cooperation of specialists, especially between companies. Hence the cross-link competence becomes increasingly important in order to coordinate the different partners purposefully. At this point we contribute with our competence in project management and share our experience in cooperation and joint venture management.
Our offer starts with bringing together innovative IT with the customer companies and their demand. The next step is developing a project draft. On approval of all stakeholders the realization can start – for there is nothing good unless one does it.
The offer therefore addresses two sides.
The Technology Push offer is aimed at companies that are responsive to innovations in the technological or service area and want to ensure competitive advantages by IT innovations.
The Demand Pull offer aims at technology-oriented persons and companies (also start-ups) who want to realize their innovative IT developments with customer companies.
This service must be understood as a cross-sectional function in addition to our other services.
Every larger project and each innovation imply changes in processes or organization for your staff, customers or suppliers as well as for the management. These changes need to be accepted and accomplished. This will succeed if a positive “wind in the right direction” is created, regarding communication – to begin with – as well as assisting support.
Many a time neutral accompaniment from outside the company is sensible, e.g. to avoid organizational blindness or conflicts due to biased views.
We as vero projects are very well aware that the actual impact of a project will not be reached until the successful cut-over into daily operations, in order to let the proposed creation of value come true.
What can we do for you?
- Integration of Stakeholders
Already before the very beginning of the project a stakeholder analysis provides a basis to know the different interests, to evaluate their impact and to consider these interests as far as it is possible without compromising the overall enterprise interests.
- Effective Communication
Exactly the same importance as in a project. Who needs to know what and when? Within a change, when questions of acceptance as well as possible conflicts are involved, there will be additional aspects of communication. More on this …
- Moderation of Requirements – Assertion of the Essence
Not everything can be done what might be requested by different divisions. Where do the priorities lie? Which parts of the enterprise are essential for the success of project accomplishment? As a motor of change we have to have a broad understanding for different needs but also to demand understanding from those who fail to get their wishes fulfilled – at the end of the day we have to come to a basis of cooperation accepted by all.
- Identification and Employment of Key Users as Multipliers
Properly selected key users are trusted persons for their colleagues and they advance progress. They become allies of the project at an early stage, are the first to learn of innovations und cannot only help with communication and motivation but also – depending on the context – in knowledge transfer or training functions. The domain knowledge they have acquired during their long-standing careers is valuable and cannot be substituted.
- Immediate Measures and Ongoing Success Monitoring
Which immediate measures may be best to prepare the ground for the change process depends on the company’s background and circumstances as well as on the expected acceptance of the change. Samples for measures are:
- make the status quo transparent
- build a sworn-in core team
- send project ambassadors into meetings of line unitsOngoing success monitoring requires means to deliver impartial data instead of enabling a personal search for culprits. The visibility of these measures yet helps to spell out determination and to create a certain pressure of expectation.
