It is said that the true measure and depth of understanding a subject is by one’s ability to easily explain the subject matter to a five-year-old.
And of all the misunderstood subjects out there – project management, and the need for it, is quite difficult to explain. At least, in easily explaining it to the little ones.
Per the global average, a project manager earns approximately £74,000 per annum – a lofty sum. But from our research, even those in that earning bracket with that specific title fumble in efficiently answering the question: How do you manage your projects?
The management of both project and stakeholders are far from being easy ventures. There are no cut and paste solutions – no generalised fit to overcome all needs. And most importantly, most solutions do not cover every sector of business fully and completely.
In smaller organisations, various apps may work, to some degree. It is unfortunate that for large-scale operations, the most efficient apps fall apart especially when one’s business requires collaboration between other companies, key stakeholders, and of course, multiple locations of work globally.
Small scale apps may work on individual groups, but not for the comprehensive management of all elements involved across entire projects. For instance, the more introverted workers often prefer block tactics in blocking out their calendars from calls and meetings until they have completed their to-do lists and email responses. This may clash with the timeframes and deliveries of companies in other time zones.
The constant collaboration and breakdown of tasks into various phases as per the demands of the Agile methodology has a way of isolating the ‘bigger-picture’ people into smaller boxes without truly making use of their talents. To truly benefit here, a tailored approach will be required.
Basecamp, while perfect for the extrovert in a small-scale scenario, can be daunting for those who prefer to work on their tasks without constant supervision from the higher-ups.
The current adopted methodology is segmented, divided, and cannot be applied to large-scale initiatives that span across the world in real-time.
Collaboration between companies, global sites, and key stakeholders is difficult enough while still ensuring that all objectives are achieved in a timely manner. We know this, perhaps even better than most as ‘collaboration’ is in our name.
While having the expertise is one thing, we pass on our knowledge through training that is as niche as our solutions to best prepare you and your entire organisation for any challenge whatsoever.
