Project management techniques are a bit like chess openings. You can read thousands of textbooks, learn all the terminology and practice ‘till the cows come home’, then one day, you’ll have an epiphany and meet someone who has never studied a book on the subject at all, yet, by applying basic principles they get the job done just as well.
The basic principles of project management in this case are good communication, ensuring that all people involved are clear about why the project is needed, what it is intended to achieve, how the outcome is to be measured, and what their responsibilities are. Add the final ingredient; talented people who have a professional, timely work ethic; mix well with a structured, organized approach that fits with your organizations size and you have a recipe for success.
Here at the Website Design Studio we have experience of working with most industry standard approaches. Most have their good points and bad points. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. A small business may well find the extra paperwork and sign off procedures of a PRINCE2 approach stifles their agility. At the end of the day, no matter how good your project management, if you don’t have the raw talent on your team you are destined for failure. At the same time you might have a group of genius’s (genii?) but if they aren’t organized and managed well, the chances of a successful project are slim.
Whatever your organizations size; we will identify the ‘best fit’ project management approach and combined with our talented, hard working professionals we will ensure your project exceeds your expectations.
