JUST IMAGINE

AVOID DELAYS

If one project delivers £100k of annualised benefit, suffering only a 1 week delay costs £1923. Excluding any additional project costs, such as resourcing.

By learning to manage projects in a more structured and effective way, it’s easy to avoid common mistakes which lead to delays. Even a small delay can cost a huge amount.

Just imagine if you could avoid this sort of delay – just once.

REALISE BENEFITS

Many projects never realise the benefits that they forecast. This slows down the progress of the company as a whole – and in some circumstances, can affect the official financial results of the business.

Buy, by delivering the right outputs from the project and building the right justification in the business, you’ll build confidence and trust across the business.

Just imagine if your project was the reason for poor business performance.

NO FIREFIGHTING

Every project comes up against problems and challenges. It’s easy to be dragged into focussing on these. Meanwhile, more problems spring up when you’re focused on that. Now, the project is in a state of ongoing firefighting.

But, by effectively managing risks before they materialise, you can enjoy a much smoother ride through your project. There will be fewer delays and much less stress.

Just imagine if your project’s problems were solved before they happened.

STAKEHOLDERS ON BOARD

Winning stakeholder support is essential for successful project delivery. Without stakeholder support, you’ll find barriers being put up and negative sentiment building. This can easily lead to major project delays, going around in circles and even a complete project failure or cancellation.

But winning stakeholder support is a long game which needs effective strategies and careful focus.

Just imagine if your most important projects were cancelled. What then?
