Strengthen the Steering Committee

Too many projects fail. In fact, up to 70% or more, studies show. The consequences for the company are often serious – both business and human related. The most important role in a project is played by the person(s) asking for the results and thus owning the project. But that role typically has a low priority and is drowned in operational tasks.

YOUR OUTCOME

You get the latest insight and approach to best-practice methods and tools for steering committees, and after the course you can navigate around the most common pitfalls encountered by project owners / steering committee members. You also get a toolbox with solutions to challenges from the day, including:

  • How is a holistic business approach ensured so that we achieve the goals we set when deciding on the project?
  • How to make “left-handed work” safer and develop the role to make it attractive?
  • How to avoid being taken hostage?
  • How to deal with dilemmas in relation to other projects and portfolio management, including resource conflicts?
  • How to act when the steering committee’s powers are deficient / unclear and the responsibility in relation to the project manager is diffuse and ad hoc based?
  • How to lead certified project managers?
CONTENT

We introduce themes and train skills in:

  • What is needed to manage change and projects effectively?
  • Is this “the right project”?
  • The trustworthy Business Case
  • How to secure the necessary resources?
  • The Benefits Realization Plan – how does it become realistic?
  • Make demands on the project manager and his/her tasks
  • Organization and reporting
  • Effective communication – upwards, outwards, inwards
