Implement Consulting Group has conducted a comprehensive study of Danish organisations’ development capabilities and performance in the area of project and portfolio management. The study for 2016 provides a clear picture of what is important in order to achieve success with projects, and how successful project organisations ensure effective governance of the total project portfolio.
High impact and results for private and public organisations in Denmark are increasingly achieved through project work. This challenges the managerial control and strategic approach to project and portfolio management as well as the organisations’ skills in project management. Implement Consulting Group’s study highlights the common trends in project behaviour and concrete practices of high-performing project organisations as inspiration for how Danish organisations can succeed in achieving the desired outcomes for their projects and portfolios going forward.
Achieving success with projects and portfolios is fundamentally about effectively realising the strategy with the right projects done in the right way. It sounds simple, but the method is far from simple. Achieving success requires first and foremost that the organisation is geared to handle project work and to develop the parameters that affect whether projects achieve the desired value and impact. This study focuses on the key parameters that characterise highperforming project organisations.
