Any business activity that is not a repetitive process can be run as a project. Where this applies to a sizeable delivery of product or service to a customer, or internal investment, project management is essential.
Good project managers deliver. Good project managers deliver outstanding results if the culture they work in, and the support they receive, is favourable. Having good project managers available in the first place requires a project management strategy. Having project planners and administrators, financial and project reporting systems, resourcing systems, initiation procedures, methodologies, reviews, training and education, role definitions, reward structures, etc, etc, requires a project management excellence programme. The whole ‘system’ must be addressed.
