Project Management as a Business Discipline
The number of projects performed in a collaborative network of two or more companies is increasing.
As a customer, it is necessary to nurture a culture of "mission success first" and put completing over competing. As a contractor, profitability and liquidity must be maintained. Another objective is a delighted customer, who comes back for more project business.
Success in complex project supply networks (PSNs) requires project managers to apply new skills. Trained in Project Business Management, they navigate through a landscape of divergent interests, cultures, jurisdictions, and personalities in addition to the competencies needed for traditional (internal) project management.
Tapping into decades of practical experience, we provide classroom training and coaching on the job. We help project managers on both sides of the negotiation table:
- Project Managers on Contractor Side:
"Making Customer Projects Profitable and the Customer Happy"
- Project Managers on Customer Side:
"Managing Complex Project Supply Networks (PSNs)"
