CREATING COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE
VISUAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT SEMINAR
If your organization is like many, you continue to experience failure to deliver projects to schedule and budget. You are not alone. This is common for all projects around the world, ranging from basic R&D to application engineering, to EPC, in every industry.
ViewPoint Visual Project Management enables you to deliver projects faster and more reliably. Less time to execute means less money spent.
- The project benefits are realized sooner; and
- Additional project capacity is made available to complete even more projects with the same resources.
Users also report a better quality of work life for project team members. Lean thinking adds other ways to reduce waste during project delivery.
In this highly interactive session, you’ll learn how to reduce your project lead times and reduce your costs. Right away.
SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS ARE NOT THE RESULT OF SUCCESSFUL PLANNING.
THEY’RE THE RESULT OF SKILLFUL EXECUTION.
Despite all of the work done to improve project performance, the record of actual project completions is dismal. Project management is a complex, messy, difficult affair, which often leaves project participants (and owners) unhappy with the outcome. The traditional approach to project management emphasizes planning and tight control of project scope, but in practice, after the beginning of the project, plans are rarely updated and used to guide the execution of the project.
The main problem is that teams are simply unable to see exactly where they are in scope of the work to be accomplished. Are they 25% done? 37% done? Which area is the most important area to be focusing now? Who is accountable for accomplishing this work?
ViewPoint is a visual project execution framework that transforms the project delivery system, bridging the gap from planning to results. It allows project teams to see exactly where they are, what is the most important area to focus upon, and agree upon work plans to accelerate project activities.
ViewPoint Delivers Results
Increase collaboration among the team Streamlines workflows through simplification Improves focus to make better and more timely decisions
Increase team engagement with project work, eliminating lost productivity due to multi-tasking and priority switching. It provides clear priorities to the project team and a common understanding of the work to be done.
Projects are completed faster and in less time.
Implementing ViewPoint improves performance, regardless of the environment or project management maturity level of the organization.
Doubling of project completions Reductions of 20%- 40% in project duration Productivity improvements greater than 25%
By making strategic changes to your project execution processes, you’ll create a unified approach where your teams will be working on the most important issues using the right tools to get the job done. Your teams will begin to do what they are supposed to do; facilitate focused, lasting improvements that improve the position of the company as a whole.
