Plano, TX (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
Pinnacle Strategies released a new video highlighting what project managers need to build a foundation to consistently deliver projects on time, on budget, and in scope. Mark Woeppel, president and CEO of Pinnacle Strategies, teaches why focusing on project execution is the key to project success.
Research shows that current approaches to project management do not seem to produce the outcomes that managers and customers want. The traditional approach focuses on control; planning, procedures and policies. Between project control and project execution, there’s a gap – a wide gap. Inside that gap, there are conflicting priorities such as a multiplicity of tasks in progress; a misalignment between what’s measured and what’s meaningful; a failure to identify and adjust for risks; undetected obstacles and bottlenecks that block progress; and more ground-level factors that have not been, and cannot be, addressed by control alone. After all, no one has perfect control over events.
Pinnacle Strategies found that project success is governed by a set of processes and behaviors that have little to do with compliance and planning and everything to do with responding to the day-to-day realities of what is actually happening. These processes and behaviors to deliver consistent results are well defined and quantified and form the foundation of the Project Execution Maturity Model. Each level of maturity is a reflection of the organization’s capability to manage activity and time. This video dives into the Project Execution Maturity Model and focuses on how to improve project execution.
