Organizations can harvest big benefits by optimizing their project and programme execution, through the use of Best Practice, this includes introducing a common project language, implementing effective controls and processes for critical elements such as Business Case and change control.
Peak recommends the use of Best Practice project and programme standards, in particular PRINCE2® (projects in controlled environments) and MSP® (Managing Succesful Programmes), which are the de facto standards globally. Project management standards such as PMP® and IPMA® can also be very relevant to use, depending on context they are being used in.
When implementing a Best Practice we analyze what is already in place and what works well, and focus on complementing the existing model in the weaker or risk-prone areas. This approach ensures a higher degree of organizational implementation, by using a step-wise best practice implementation that also include training and development.
The keywords when we work with implementing or optimizing execution frameworks, are: scalability, efficiency and a continuous viable business case.
A project is defined as a temporary organization, with the purpose of delivering a product or service.
Programme Management may be defined as the co-ordinated organisation, direction and implementation of a portfolio of projects and activities that together achieve outcomes and realise benefits that are of strategic importance.
Peak helps organizations to benefit by using and implementing the tools within Programme Management, in particular Benefit Management. Peak uses tools from the MSP® standard, Managing Succesful Programmes.
