  1. 1. My top three Post Project Peeves - Intro Many of you will be familiar with this: Monitoring and Controlling Planning Initiation Closure Execution
  2. 2. My top three Post Project Peeves - Intro How often do you get told this is what we are measured on? Quality Time But when it is all over, and you publish the lessons learned ……. How many of you recognise these?
  3. 3. My top three Post Project Peeves - 1 The project was delivered to scope, but it was behind schedule and over-cost, so it was not a successful project! What about measuring the business benefits and giving credit where credit is due? Yes, the project was delivered late but it has already saved us or made us Blah Blah dollars in improved productivity gains – The project was actually an astounding success! Note. A worrying trend I have noticed lately is that PMO’s are not often given the credit due for subsequent operational savings and become the subject of niggardly cost savings / cutting exercises
  4. 4. My top three Post Project peeves - 2 The project was delivered okay, but adoption has been poor! Sometime after a project you are talking to a couple of the guys in the warehouse and one of them says, “Oh, they introduced a new system but didn’t ask me, so I just continue doing what I did before!”. This is about managing the organisational change and following through? It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us to action and discipline that enabled us to follow through. Zig Ziglar
  5. 5. My top three Post Project peeves - 3 All too often you have delivered the project and everybody is bought in when you suddenly see the project benefits diminished because some manager is not prepared to spend budget on training for his team into the new system processes or change his teams working practices? How often have your projects been frustrated by peoples indifference or reluctance to take action? In my experience, too many managers are fearful of taking direct action as it usually means putting themselves at risk of exposure to criticism. Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often. Mark Twain
  6. 6. My top three Post Project peeves - End And remember……………………….. Setting an example is not the main means of influencing others; It is the only means. Albert Einstein Thank you for your time
