Integration & Alignment
In today’s increasingly volatile, highly commoditized and globalized business environment, companies across industries need to boost their competitive advantage. Indeed, companies are looking to increase their bottom line by focusing on improving three core areas:
- Operational Excellence
- Product Leadership
- Customers Channel Closeness
Achieving real success in each area is challenging enough, let alone managing the complexities of an integrated solution.
The methods of standardizing business processes can be particularly difficult for large corporations, with business units (or holding companies), that often function as independent entities.
Creating consistent (and collaborative) approaches to various business functions enables centralized knowledge and effective oversight, while offering implementation flexibility, business and operational alignment.
Success Factors in Project Life Cycle
An estimated 75% of projects fail to meet their original objectives. Too often projects are over budget, behind schedule, many are short-staffed or staff lack the proper training. Furthermore, many projects miss targets and expectations, and fall short on quality and long-term impacts.
The key success factors across all projects include:
- Realistic expectations, budgets and resources
- Identified sponsors and champions
- Executive buy-in, involvement of end users and buyers in the process
- Proactive staff who mitigate risk and external shocks
“Success Factors” elements are highlighted across the following four Project Life Cycle phases:
Skilled and Competent Resources
Having qualified, skilled and competent resources is a key requirement for any successful execution. Hence, close attention must be given to identifying, screening, training and qualifying the right mix of candidates both for the project’s duration, and the next generation of project owners.
Companies adopt different approaches to Change Management: strategic, operational and tactical. When leading and managing high-impact projects that require coordination, alignment and momentum building , the change function is implemented through a multi-layer Steering Committee (with Sponsors and Champions) and the Project Management office, and/or coordinated with existing Centers of Excellence if and when needed. The project is also supplemented with effective communication, training, knowledge transfer and succession building.
