Project Management & Project Organization
Projects are the central pivot in many development activities and deliveries. The ability to complete projects is therefore central to many companies and organisations. Some of the challenges, which may occur in this context, are:
The Project Work Mode
Managing and organizing a company to be project-organized is to many a new discipline. The challenge lies in readjusting from a situation, where projects are something unique, to a situation where projects and the time horizon of the project flow, productivity, and ability to meet the targets, are decisive factors in the continued existence of the company.
A project evaluation or project revision is a systematic assessment of a planned, ongoing, or completed project, reviewing its design, management, implementation and results. The goal is to establish to what extent the project has lived up to its expectations, its efficiency, impact, and long-term effect. The evaluation results in directly applicable recommendations with regard to the project in question, as well as more general conclusions, which can provide a basis for decisions concerning future improvements.

The principal idea behind the project management work is to place the task in the centre and support resources’ ability to run efficient and accurate projects. This can happen in among other ways by:
As the project work is often a complex task, we co-operate with the company or the organisation in question when we identify the focus areas, which best support the strategic goals.
