Don’t cut costs when it comes to developing your business

The most solid basis for developing your business is to create a consistent system. Companies must invest in a consistent process, both in the operational and in the project’s area that allows them to achieve sustainable growth.

We have contact with many companies, some smaller than others, all with many good business ideas. However, we noticed that the fundamental problem is the lack of consistency in organizational processes. There is inconsistency in the relations with staff, with vendors and with clients.

When you think of your company as a whole, and look to the future, your mind creates an idea of how to work. It soon appears, sometimes unconsciously, the need to manage people and process in an integrated way.

But there are a lot of methodologies, a lot of technologies, and a lot of software totally disconnected from each other. The first step is to focus on the future, to learn about what methodologies exist in the market, and especially how these methodologies can be integrated.

These are some questions that you can ask yourself in order to know if your business is in the right way:

  • Do you know how to integrate strategy, innovation, project management, and sustainability?
  • Do you know how to integrate policies, process and procedures, with project management and operations?
  • Do you know the financial contribution of each project and each operation carried out in your organization?
  • Please don’t cut costs when it comes to developing your business, the lack of a consistent process can be a key factor in the failure of your organization. Learn, innovate, organize, integrate and grow! Create the future of your business in a sustainable way!

    Project Management Is Essentially About Change

    Project Management changes the workplace

    Project Management changes the environment: If we execute and deliver our projects with ethics we can produce a positive impact in society, preserving our natural resources and producing changes in the social and economic level.

    Project Management changes opportunities: With a project management culture in place we only choose profitable projects that are aligned with organizational strategy, thereby increasing opportunities. We focus only on what matters to the organization.

    Project Management changes profit: Stop any surprises in the project. Stop losing time and money in projects. Project management help you to finalize your projects with the expected monetary value calculated in planning.

    Project Management changes people skills: Project management takes time and effort to
    plan how you will improve the performance of human resources involved in the project, either individually or as a team.

    Project Management changes conflict: conflict is inevitable, is a consequence of organizational interactions, but good project management practices help to avoid many of them.

    Project Management changes quality: a lack of attention to quality adds considerable risk to the project, which results in rework. This means time and money wasting. With a focus on quality, you can spend time preventing rather than dealing with problems, delivering a product or service with the quality expected by the customer.

    Project Management changes risk: Performing risk management helps prevent many problems on projects and helps make other problems less likely. When you eliminate uncertainties, the estimates for work are more accurate, saving time and money on a project.

    Project management changes success: the ability of an organization to achieve the goals of the project significantly impacts their ability to thrive.

    Project Management changes the workplace: project management is the best way to integrate people and process, with a comprehensive approach: learn, comprehend and take action.

    With project management we can create a positive impact in society, increase our opportunities, increase profit, improve people skills, minimize the conflicts, improve the quality of products and services, prevent and minimize risk and increase our success.

    Definitely, with project management we can change the workplace! Every organization deserves to be the best it can be.

    Como A Cultura de Gestão de Projetos Pode Afetar a Rentabilidade

    Como A Cultura de Gestão de Projetos Pode Afetar a Rentabilidade.

    Implementar os processos associados à gestão de projetos trás muitos benefícios. Analisemos só um deles: a rentabilidade.

    #1 Entendendo a rentabilidade numa empresa SEM uma cultura de Gestão de Projetos

    Muitos profissionais que ainda não utilizam a gestão de projetos, fazem mais ou menos uma análise de custo, colocam mais ou menos uma margem para a rentabilidade do projeto, apresentam a proposta ao cliente e se for aprovada começam a trabalhar no projeto.
    Ao começarem a trabalhar, começam as surpresas… O custo não era bem esse, normalmente mais elevado, e a rentabilidade começa a ficar cada vez mais pequena, em muitos casos, perde-se dinheiro. Este cenário ainda não é dos piores, o pior cenário é aquele em que não se levam bem as contas, e a empresa pensa que está a ganhar dinheiro com o projeto, quando na realidade está a perder; na maioria das vezes isto acontece, porque existem custos dos projetos (deslocações, atrasos, formação etc.), que não são atribuídos ao projeto, senão à empresa como um todo, ficando com a ilusão de que o projeto foi rentável.

    #2 Entendendo a rentabilidade numa empresa COM uma cultura de Gestão de Projetos

    Mas, e se fizermos bem as coisas? Será que conseguimos obter a rentabilidade esperada do projeto?

    Ao fazermos o planeamento do projeto, ficamos a conhecer o custo do projeto, e a esse custo adicionamos a margem de rentabilidade do projeto.

    Numa cultura de gestão de projetos o panorama apresenta-se de uma forma diferente:

    – escolhemos só projetos que estejam de acordo com a nossa estratégia organizacional – projetos rentáveis.
    – terminamos os projetos dentro do custo planeado, com a qualidade planeada e o prazo planeado- conseguimos obter a rentabilidade esperada
    – minimizamos os riscos do projeto – conseguimos obter a rentabilidade esperada.
    – aumentamos as oportunidades – conseguimos obter a rentabilidade esperada.
    – gerimos as expectativas das partes interessadas. – conseguimos obter a rentabilidade esperada
    – gerimos as mudanças .- conseguimos obter a rentabilidade esperada.

    Sim, entendeu … A gestão de projetos não aumenta a rentabilidade do projeto, mas aumenta a probabilidade de terminar o projeto com a rentabilidade esperada. Evitando gastar o dinheiro em custos não planeados e ficar com prejuízo no projeto.

    A cultura de Gestão de Projetos cria empresas economicamente sustentáveis.

    E você? Considera que as empresas deviam ter uma cultura de Gestão de Projetos?
