Selecting the right project through welldisciplined portfolio management and effective project execution using project management best practices is only part of the recipe for success. As companies mature in project management by implementing Project Management Offices (PMOs), portfolio management and developing more certified project managers, they begin to realize a major gap in the process: successful implementation happens through committed users.
Realizing the true business benefits promised by the business cases of corporate projects is accomplished through the people who ultimately have to buy in, use the new product or process and make it produce the desired results. This can only be measured after the project is completed and integrated into a company’s operations – in other words, during its life cycle.
The degree of success in realizing these benefits depends on how effective the project was in paving the way for the users to adopt and use the product. In this workshop, we examine a comprehensive process for Organization and People Change Management (OPCM) and how it integrates into the five project management process groups.
