Power for Projects - Passion for People
Define project office tasks and provide resources and support with the objective of a standard for all projects as a basis for project portfolio management.
In our practice, we repeatedly see projects that can provide no or little resilient answers to the three fundamental questions in the project.
You've probably heard this before. But what sounds so simple and logical, shows some hurdles and pitfalls in practice. Individual projects survive thanks to a good project team and with the usual tools from Microsoft and Co.
A functioning project office is more than one employee or maybe a small team that supports the project to the best of its ability and tries to keep the management informed. A functioning project office accompanies the project from planning to completion, providing the necessary plans, documents, data, analyses, forecasts, decisions and securing know-how in all phases.
This always requires investment in four areas: organization, people, methodology and infrastructure. This already shows that the This already shows that the establishment of a professional project office is associated with an effort that often exceeds the possibilities. Especially, if this effort is to be made just for one project at the start of the project.
If you look at the amount of tasks a project office has, the challenge becomes even clearer. Throughout all phases of
planning, monitoring, control, and completion, many different processes and tasks that build on each other
must be completed. And these tasks must be performed continuously over the entire project duration,
because there is no such thing as the much-cited simple waterfall in any real project.
Also the currently hyped agile projects will not work without the processes and tasks mentioned.
