Leading Successful Projects

A successful project is one that completes the work to specifications and quality standards within all financial, manpower and time targets, and achieves its stated objectives.

It requires people at every level knowing clearly what they should be doing at all times, so they are able to drive project delivery at maximum speed and minimum cost. The role of the project leader is to make this happen.

Successful Project Management (SPM) is an agile and flexible methodology aimed at realising benefit from change. It is made up of precisely defined roles and clearly illustrated processes, supported by a project toolkit and comprehensive glossary.

SPM harnesses the experience, knowledge and creativity of people through empowerment and teamwork - so encouraging a leadership culture of active issue resolution, risk management and delivering to the promise.

SPM encourages people to take responsibility for planning the work taking into account all deliverables and dependencies - then working to the plan and removing obstacles, to achieve delivery on time and within budget.
