Delivering Projects the Expert Way
There is a reason why 97% of projects fail to meet either deadline, scope or budget. Successfully delivering complex projects is a difficult art to learn. It often takes years of failures before you manage to finally learn what is required to consistently deliver. Even then, there are always new, innovative ways of working which even experienced Project Managers can learn from and utilise.
So imagine if you could short circuit this process of trial and error? Imagine if you could bypass the numerous project management courses and textbooks? Imagine if you could quickly learn the practical techniques for successful project delivery and eliminate some of the the following problems.
"I'm spending all my time doing paperwork and nothing is getting delivered on my project. Where am I going wrong?"
“Help!, I’ve been moved onto a project which has insane deadlines, a limited budget and extremely demotivated resources. How do I effectively communicate with the team and Business Stakeholders to ensure the project is delivered?”
"The scope of my project keeps changing. Despite working really long hours I don’t seem to be making a difference. Perhaps I should move into something less stressful than Project Management?"
That is where this site will help you. We are all successful experienced Programme and Senior Project Managers who have learned the hard way, the numerous tips and techniques which are actually required to successfully deliver projects. This knowledge is something which no amount of textbooks and courses will teach you. It is also the reason why experienced Project Managers are so much in demand globally from Employers.
This is even more the case now due to the Credit Crunch. With Corporates needing to still deliver projects, but by utilising limited resources and a more constrained budget, there is a demand for those Project Managers who can think laterally, be creative and get the project delivered to the quality required.
