"Projects are a board and senior team issue. They are the vehicles to the future and hence the tools for turning your vision into reality."
Most organizations have more projects and change underway than they can cope with. They struggle with the complexities of reporting, prioritization and dependencies. Despite their best efforts, they are continually disappointed in the rate of delivery and success.
The situation is further complicated as each function seeks to resolve the problems “as they see them”. But all too often, this only makes matters worse as they are merely addressing only those symptoms which affect them. Overall performance remains static or even declines.
How do we break out of this situation and set a course for real business improvement?
