How project management can support sustainable growth

For business and public organisations, internal project management skills are the cornerstone of success. Whether the end-user is a citizen, a customer, a department, or a board – recognising the critical role of project management in today’s fast-paced business and public sector environments is paramount.

While sustainable projects create value in the organisation, the potential risks of neglecting in-house capabilities are not to be overlooked. From cost overruns to reduced quality or team burnout, poorly managed projects really impact the bottom line negatively. Ultimately, organisations consistently fail to deliver on their commitments due to poor project management and may lose market share to competitors.

 

Enable your organisation to execute successful projects in alignment with strategic goals

Mannaz’s project management programme is among the most popular and well-rated in Denmark. Every year we help a community of thousands of team leaders and specialists develop their project management toolkit enabling them to step up and drive forward critical projects that deliver on business goals.

Ensuring that projects are executed efficiently, on time, and within budget is pivotal for a successful project. It’s about creating a viable, well-structured framework that enables you to streamline processes, reduce bottlenecks, and foster a culture of continuous improvement in the project team. Commitment and motivation are essential.

Ultimately the successful project manager will ensure that stakeholders are kept informed, quality standards are met, costs are kept within budget, and products delivered on time.

Are your competitors more efficient than you?

The complexity of projects is increasing, and it requires better preparation, more precise communication, and support from management. That’s easier said than done. Therefore, we asked Vice President Henrik Bjerregaard Nielsen to delve into Mannaz’s Project Manager Survey and provide his insights on dos and don’ts.

Project management development

We develop project management as a central and well-established core competency within the organisation.

Most organisations are dependent on competent project management and skilled project managers. At Mannaz we believe that this is reached most efficiently by strengthening project managers through assessments, competency development, and with an organisational focus. In our training, we utilise well-known, effective, and appreciated methodologies as well as organisations such as IPMA, PMI, and PRINCE2®.  

Agile project management and coaching

We help organisations in their efforts to assess agile readiness and provide tools to ensure continuous development.

Recent research shows that close to 70% of all Danish organisations (public and private) use agile methods. At Mannaz we support organisations within this framework and respect existing working processes. We also help with integrating and developing an agile mindset.

Development of a project model

We help your organisation establish a ‘best fit’ project model. An example of a model could be to create an accessible overview and rank projects based on their importance. 

A project model is a map that shows the project manager and stakeholders how to run the project. This provides the opportunity for learning, knowledge sharing, and a well-prepared collaboration with different stakeholders. It also helps to support the aim of completing the project within a scheduled time and budget. 

Experienced project manager as an external consultant

Strengthening an organisation with an experienced project manager is crucial.

All organisations run the risk of running out of critical resources. At Mannaz we offer to take on the project management role for short, medium, or long-range projects. Within Mannaz we have very experienced project managers in various fields including construction, planning, public projects, IT, pharma, and manufacturing. We are ready to offer support whenever and wherever.  

Steering committee training

Research and experience show that an effective and trust-driven relationship between the project manager, the steering committee, and general management is one of the most important aspects for ensuring successful projects.

We provide the necessary and constructive tools and competence needed to contribute as a member of a steering committee through both theory and case-based exercises. Add-on activities could include assessments among the project managers in the organisation to review the current project landscape.

Evaluation of project maturity

The project maturity of an organisation describes the effectiveness with which the organisation works with projects as well as learning from past experiences. When the maturity level is too low, it can often lead to economic waste and critical delays. 

Mannaz offers to examine the project maturity in your organisation to evaluate where to focus your efforts in increasing this maturity. Furthermore, Mannaz offers a selection of specific focus areas that will support your journey towards a higher maturity level. 

Faciliation of inspirational talks

In our role as guest speakers, Mannaz provides extensive experience in identifying specific focus areas that should be closely worked with in your organisation. 

Mannaz is ready to deliver inspirational and educational talks on relevant topics including the latest international research at events such as team days and networking activities. This may include topics such as risk management, program leadership, and the use of artificial intelligence in projects. 

Establishing project academies

Organisations with many project managers can benefit from an IT-based internal academy that provides an overview of sign-up dates for courses and general information. 

Working closely with you, we offer start-to-finish development journeys where your employees have an accessible summary of their ongoing competency development. This also provides you with the opportunity to create an overview of educational actions needed to keep project managers, participants, and steering committees updated with the latest knowledge. 

Training in project participation

Participants of the project are the backbone in ensuring that projects are finalised on time and that expert knowledge is injected throughout the project life cycle. 

Mannaz consultants support the participants during their first encounter with project management and teach them the basic theory of projects. There is also a focus on how you as a project participant can support the overall objective of the project. This is equally relevant to specialists who are new to working processes. 

Project communication

More and more projects run into issues when the flow of communication is flawed. 

We focus on this exciting area of expertise. We focus on the communication of the project’s progress, potential, and difficulties as well as providing expert knowledge on the project manager’s role as a media centre during the project’s life cycle.  

Co-piloting & Coaching

Our experienced consultants at Mannaz help the project manager to become successful.

We work with an increased focus on competency development as well as sparring and coaching during the life cycle of the project. This is to ensure that the project is completed successfully while providing extensive learning to the project manager. An experienced project coach is an invaluable support throughout the complex and turbulent phases of a project.
