Creating a Viable Framework for Successful Projects

At DEMS, we believe in the power of transformational leadership. It is not about having all the answers but asking the right questions. Our project managers and leaders are open to exploring new ideas and novel working methods, ensuring that projects thrive in a dynamic, uncertain, and complex environment.

Adapting to the Changing Landscape of Project Management

Everything is changing in the modern business landscape – from project expectations to how we work and learn. The nature of projects, team dynamics, and environments are evolving. That is why project managers and leaders must embrace change and navigate these disruptions effectively.

Maximizing Project Success and Minimizing Failure

Projects play a critical role in a company’s progress. They can either facilitate entry into new markets, implement cutting-edge technologies, or activate long-awaited operational assets. Conversely, project failure can impede progress, disrupt timelines, and threaten the firm’s existence.

The Challenges of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

The CFO of a company faces numerous challenges when evaluating the commercial and economic viability of projects. They are tasked with reporting the success or failure of projects, adding to the burden of their already demanding role.

Building Blocks for Better Project Delivery

Drawing from the successful models of leading companies in various sectors, we have identified six design principles that serve as building blocks for superior project delivery:

  • Collaboration across multiple projects for maximum value.
  • Balancing standard processes and innovation to enhance productivity.
  • Combining agility, flexibility, and resilience with disciplined progress monitoring.
  • Developing and retaining the necessary talent through a redesigned "people supply chain."
  • Utilizing a data-driven operating model shared by all stakeholders.
  • Future-proofing projects with metrics and incentives that foster innovation and sustainability.

Optimizing Project Management Transformation

DEMS has three decades of experience delivering complex projects across multiple global industries. The most effective project management transformation occurs when people, technology, processes, and big data intersect. We specialize in tracking the latest trends in these areas to develop best practices and agility within the project management industry.

The PMI Talent Triangle®: The Ideal Skill Set

In today’s complex and competitive global marketplace, technical skills alone are insufficient for successful project management. Organizations now seek additional leadership, business intelligence, and digital skills competencies. The PMI Talent Triangle®, which encompasses technical, leadership, strategic, and business management expertise and digital skills, is the ideal skill set required to contribute to the bottom line.

Bridging the Talent Gap in Project Management

PMI’s 2021 Talent Gap report states that the global economy will require 25 million new project professionals by 2030. With declining fertility rates and an aging workforce, organizations must find innovative ways to address worker shortages and close the talent gap. Our training and consulting services are designed to equip professionals with the skills to meet these future demands.

Embracing the Era of The Project Economy

We are in the era of The Project Economy, where change is constant, and projects are at the forefront of organizational progress. Organizations must adapt to this paradigm shift and view projects as essential business assets. Project leadership is pivotal in driving disruption, innovation, and long-term value.

Project Management as a Strategic Competency

Project management is no longer confined to specific domains; it has become an organization’s strategic competency. It is viewed as a vehicle for capturing, evaluating, and implementing best practices that enhance overall performance and enable continuous improvements.

Equipping Project Leaders for Success in The Project Economy

With so much change happening, executives rely on project leaders to bring ideas to fruition. This necessitates a combination of traditional and emerging agile project leadership skills. At DEMS, we empower project professionals with the capabilities they need to thrive in The Project Economy.
