We need this project to be successful Critical projects often need a different approach. It might require the ‘A team’ or they might need to work around some aspects of the normal delivery model. Projects need an approach that quickly embrace the valuable aspects and create the level of insight into progress that instils confidence in stakeholders. Project teams need a way of building credibility and trust throughout the process by responding to customers, technologies and business models all while dealing with the uncertainty that often exists in projects themselves. Consider the projects in your organization and think about how many are running as they were meant to from the start. Are any of these projects late? Have any of the projects failed, been dropped or at risk due to performance challenges? History tells us that most enterprises face several challenges when it comes to executing well on projects. The challenge for most enterprises is that the standard way of working was designed for an average project. Critical projects are not average.
Solution Emergn’s value proposition focuses on the unique aspects of the project. The application of agile methods helps focus on the value, flow and quality to deliver solutions predictably. We do this by bringing key groups closer together while making the work and solution more understandable and transparent. We improve the collaboration and coordination between key stakeholders and teams in order to help them make decisive and correct decisions that deliver value quickly. These tight feedback loops helps build momentum. For many enterprises the most critical projects can be complex and have many stakeholders. The application of agile practices such as Scrum can help to develop a heartbeat and XP might help developers write higher quality software, but these frameworks can sometimes gloss over the end-toend flow of value. It is important to apply an end-to-end approach to increasing value, improving flow and advancing quality to deliver the right results. Emergn’s approach is to quickly build a project specific model that brings together effective working practices from agile and lean, and blend them together to fit the scale of the project and achieve the desired goal.
