Developing powerful human factors in your project teams
is essential to the successful management of projects…
even more essential than technical skills!
Despite all of the training and certifications conducted each year in the technical aspects of Project Management, shocking research studies indicate that …
- 45% of large IT projects overrun their budgets!
- 62%- 68% of these projects fail completely!
- 17% fail so badly that they threaten the very existence of the organization!
The reason: while organizations focus on much needed Project Management technical training, they very often overlook the development of the human factors that are so essential to project delivery. Powerful human factors that must be present in project teams to fully augment the technical skills.
We at Elite Project Management Strategies have seen this time and time again.
Yes, Project Managers:
- are adept at developing project schedules and performing resource loading
- know how to display Gantt Charts effectively
- maintain laser-like focus on managing to the critical path
- keep excellent meeting minutes and produce good status reports, and even
- calculate earned value
Many of these same Project Managers are woefully inadequate at managing and leading their most valuable resources – their project staff and that of their client.
And projects fail.
That’s where Elite Project Management Strategies comes in. We work with your teams to instill the people side of Project Management – the human factors that engage teams, create strong client partnerships, retain skilled employees, and most importantly, increase the likelihood of overall project success.
- We teach Project Managers to be more effective in project delivery, utilizing powerful human factors in leading their teams and those of their clients.
