Project Management: Tomorrow – Today – or still Yesterday ?

Whats the differences between Projects at that time and today ?

Projects exist as long as mankind has been around.

Be it the old Inca empire in South America, remember the fortress Machu-Picchu, or the pyramids in Egypt, or the Great Wall in China.

The former master builders have been architects, construction engineers and project managers. They have been real masterminds and geniuses in their subjects, converting visions into reality. The duration of their projects spanned over several generations.

Project Management of today is using sophisticated and standardized processes and tools applying software for effective planning, monitoring and controlling of projects. Without such software it would no longer be possible to realize large projects, like building airports, industry parks or, of late, the so called eighth wonder of world, the Palm Jumeira in Dubai, not to forget the Olympic Games 2008 in Beijing.

The expectations to nowadays project managers are by far higher then just the knowledge of soft-skills.

Successful project management relies on:

  • Unified project management processes and methods
  • Comprehensive knowledge which is goes beyond Time-, Cost-, and Resource Management, like…
    • Risk Management as an important success factor
    • Communication Management being more and more important in international projects,
    • as well as Quality Management,
    • application of software (MS-Office-tools in combination with Project Management Informations Systems)

This creates the capability to meet time frames and to keep costs and project targets at a high quality level.

Our time has become ever so dynamic:

  • Product life cycles are getting shorter and shorter,
  • Markets are changing at a rapid pace,
  • Companies are reacting by restructuring their organizations almost on a yearly base,,
  • Mergers and acquisitions are a daily occurence.

“Project Management is the answer,
when changes and modifications are the only persistence and constancy.”

Get fit for tomorrow!

Save costs and increase your efficiency by applied Project Management and have more success in the competition. Your certified Project Managers and team members are not only working together with you highly motivated but also efficiently due to the right software.

Project clients and sponsors are getting transparent overviews about all projects. As manager you know the KPIs of all the projects and you are able, like a pilot in the cockpit, to make the right decisions for the next flight.

Your company knows the degree of maturity of your Project Management, uses continuous improvement processes, has qualified and certified project managers, as well as a Project Management Information System among other means for the support of resource planning.

New colleagues train themselves quickly on the basis of PM-manuals and known standards. Your company passed the last auditing according to ISO 9000/1 with flying colors, as a result of your ability to present constant and documented processes, also in Project Management. Your customers highly appreciate your company for meeting deadlines, maintaining quality levels, at the same time not exceeding costs.

How do you operate your Project Management ?

LEDs – Die Beleuchtungstechnik von Morgen, doch alle sprechen schon von der LED-Technik von heute. Fest steht, dass die LED in den nächsten zehn Jahren die Beleuchtungstechnik genauso revolutionieren wird, wie die Flachbildschirme die alten Röhrenmonitore und -Fernsehgeräte abgelöst haben. Die Verbraucher standen dieser neuen Technik anfangs skeptisch gegenüber. War sie nicht nur teuer, so verwirrten auch neue technischen Parameter wie Auflösung, Reaktionszeit, Pixeldichte, etc. Auch der heutige LED-Anwender wird mit neuen Begriffen, wie Lichtstrom, Lumen, Candela und Lux oder […]
