Keep the Value Coming

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
In this age of hyper attention on ROI, it's no surprise organizations are worried about sustaining value--or not sustaining it, I suppose, in the case of some organizations. According to the preliminary results of PMI's Researching the Value of Project Management, organizations that stop focusing on the value of project management can, in fact, destroy any value they ever had.
    Seems simple, right? To remain competitive, continuous improvement is necessary. Look through job descriptions related to project management and you almost always see the words "continuous improvement" in the list of duties.
    But continuous improvement doesn't just happen. Project managers get in ruts. And it's easy to just do things the way they've always been done. It takes a leader to keep things moving--and to ensure project management continues to support the organization's strategic direction.
    Because with the loss of value comes expanded scopes, extended schedules and exploding budgets. And nobody wants that.
