Putting the Wizards and Princes to Work
In this episode we ask you whether you are convinced that you are getting the best possible performance from your delivery organisation and its project management wizards, or if you are having a little pixie dust thrown in your eye.
Technology organisations usually need to deliver projects and so the effectiveness of their delivery organisation can either be a source of great competitive advantage from efficiency and customer satisfaction if all goes well, or of cost and endless aggravation when it does not.
In particular, we address the importance and usefulness of the PM Body of Knowledge and methodologies like Prince2. Both are often invoked by the wizards as a panacea but in reality, if not well understood, they can be a big part of the problem.
