How to build a compelling business case
Focusing on realisation of effects through high credibility and reduced complexity
One of the major pitfalls of working with a business case is that it becomes too complex, and it is unclear who owns the effects of the project. Fundamentally, focus has to shift from calculations to conditions for calculations – what assumptions have we made in order to create the basis for decision-making?
Problems can be complicated – solutions cannot
We are only capable of processing a small fraction of the information we are constantly bombarded with.
For project steering committees to perform excellently all members need to offer their full commitment to the project – they all need to be pigs. In addition four other skills and competencies need to be present in the steering committee.
Engagement – a source of energy that never dries out
Engagement means everything. Research shows that when we are engaged, our efficiency, productivity and value creation increase by a factor of 4 compared to a scenario where we “just” go to work with no other motivation than making a living.
Introduce more freedom and a few strict rules if you wish to increase the efficiency and quality of your development projects. This may sound like a contradiction in terms, but it works.
We believe that people support what they create. Promoting engagement, understanding and commitment will not only ensure the well-being of your staff, it will guarantee your change project’s success.
Leadership in project environments
How do you allocate resources for cross-divisional projects while still meeting your targets in the line? Most line managers recognise this dilemma. To resolve it, you need to make sure that line and project goals are aligned so that the organisation is not competing for the same resources.
