The project framework

As we have learned, projects draw on many resources from a wide range of functions within an organisation. Ensuring these are focused on achieving specific, identified benefits for the organisation is your key management challenge. You can increase the likelihood of success for your projects, and hence of your business, by following a project framework which:

  • is benefit driven;
  • is user and customer focused;
  • capitalises on the skills and resources in the organisation;
  • builds ‘quality’ into the project deliverables;
  • helps manage risk;
  • allows many activities to proceed in parallel (hence greater velocity);
  • is used by people across your whole organisation.

As we have already seen in Part One (p. 18), sound approaches to tackling projects achieve all these objectives by breaking each project into a series of generic stages and gates which form a framework within which every project in the organisation can be aligned.
