In a complex and accelerating world, we cannot afford to waste time and resources on low maturity in project management.

Don't waste time

Project Management in a Complex and Accelerating World.

​Several trends are converging to motivate companies to adopt centralised Project Management Offices (PMOs) as a way of managing their strategic initiatives. The increasing pace and demand for innovation have caused the number and complexity of projects to soar, often with little addition of staff.

​Increasingly, organisational initiatives involve the wider collaboration of process and technology, which increases the complexity and interdependencies within projects. All of these factors lead to a complex management environment that cries for centralised management.

​Key Challenges

  • Breaking a trend of failed projects in terms of time, budget, and/or problems meeting project objectives
  • Creating visibility into project performance and resources across projects
  • Effectively planning limited resources and capacity
  • Creating and maintaining a consistent project delivery methodology and establishing shared project management competencies
  • Matching the project management maturity with the adequate PMO setup.
  • Anchoring Project Management firmly in the organisation

In Mannaz we enable organisations to realise the benefits and strategic anchoring of their projects. We work with both existing and future governance structures and often with a maturity assessment as the starting point to point out the most important development areas. Based on this, we identify the needed activities together with your leaders. In most cases, we see a need for a combined effort focusing on establishing a strategically anchored PMO as well as working with supporting the everyday operational project management.
