Value Based Project Management
Ensures project remains aligned with strategic objective.
Traditionally deliverables are not necessarily tied to a specific value or organizational objective, but rather they themselves are the purpose for the project. Too often however we complete a project only to find that while the project delivered exactly what was asked for, it failed to fulfill the purpose for which we needed the deliverables for in the first place.
Value based project management examines the value and purpose of the project in addition to the project itself to ensure that the deliverables support the strategic objective of the business. Attaching value to a deliverable ensures that the deliverable not only meets the requirements of the project, but that it supports the strategic objective of the organization.
Value as a deliverable.
Value based project management also uses value projections as deliverables to ensure that the project is successfully delivering the intended value. Similar to how traditional project management focuses on tangible deliverables, value based project management identifies specific goals which can be tested via metrics and uses these as the deliverables.
I am a certified project manager with a fascination for data. By combining my interests in both analysis and project management, my focus is not only on implementing a solution, but implementing the right solution, using proven project management principals and techniques.
My area of experience is related to IT Project Management and Business Development. Solutions focus on current business processes and unique company culture, needs, and goals. I perscribe to the Value Based approach to project management, which treats value as a deliverable.
