Regardless of whether they are strategy, investment, development, organization or change projects, many companies are facing formidable transformation processes associated with many risks.

Challenges

  • Complexity – In practice, about two-thirds of all projects fall short of their key goals, often because they are of a size and complexity which cannot be achieved using traditional project management methods alone.
  • Capacities ­– As internal management resources are generally fully utilized, there is often not the necessary capacity to efficiently implement strategically important and urgent optimization and adaptation tasks within the company.
  • Competences – Moreover, only specialist managers with many years of experience are able to reliably smooth out the interdependencies and numerous conflicts of objectives in multi-project scenarios, and to steer the high number of sub-processes and work streams into regulated channels.

Specialist management resources are called for to overcome challenges of this magnitude, which complement the relevant skills and capacities on an ad hoc basis, efficiently restructure any projects in need, and reliably manage the diversity of project tasks and stakeholders involved.

taskforce provides High Quality Project Management as a specialized management service for this. HQPM® combines proven top management expertise with certified project management expertise for the management and implementation of strategic projects and programs within the Management Office Program.

As persuasive management executives, they are able to speak to shareholders and top-level management on the same level and gain the necessary trust from relevant stakeholders to avert crises, unharness new energy and guide the program successfully to the agreed project goals. They support the structural adaptability of the corporate organization, and its ability to renew itself in the long term, beyond merely managing complex programs and solving numerous tasks.
