Project management

Turning great strategies into reality requires efficient execution.

Home / Knowledge areas / Project management

The importance of good execution is anything but underestimated. In fact, both the narrative and the general understanding of business leaders have shifted towards a state aptly described by Roger L. Martin as “The Execution Trap.” Project management is one of our key knowledge areas and certainly deserves a lot of attention, but we are aware that, without a good strategy, efficient execution can have some negative effects for the organization.

Again, we must emphasize that there is no shortage of very good sources of knowledge. Many methods, best practices, examples, how-tos, how-not-tos…

Contains practical advice for estimating and planning agile projects while providing methods to deliver iterative value and meet project goals effectively.

Without re-using any of the well-known sources, we would like to highlight several important points that are relevant for the application of project management knowledge in Logeecom.

1

Above all, it is about effective leadership

Effective leadership is the driving force that motivates the team and steers the project toward its objectives. We have all read countless definitions of a “good leader,” but the truth is that a simplistic application of widely promoted recipes won’t suffice. Exceptional leadership is a rarity in today’s landscape.

2

Strong focus on effective communication and group dynamics

The importance of communication and group dynamics cannot be overstated. Their crucial role in project management is recognized, but due to the complexity of both topics, it is far from easy to integrate them effectively into daily practice.

3

Never forget change management

Change management, which is often neglected, plays an important role and is closely tied to project management; both often work in tandem for organizational success. Change management involves understanding and managing the human aspect of change. The goal is to achieve the desired business outcomes while minimizing resistance, enhancing employee engagement and increasing the effectiveness of new processes or systems within the organization.

It’s about unlocking synergies between people

“In my many years of professional involvement in project management, I have learned that successful projects depend on more than just plans and schedules — they are driven by the synergy between people. When this synergy is achieved, it transforms a collection of individuals into a strong, united team. Each team member is aware of their role, and together, they all strive toward a common goal. This emergent property — the phenomenon of ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’ — is at the heart of our success in project management.”
