Baseline Briefing Features Our Project Recovery Research

Posted by J. Kent Crawford in Project Failure & Recovery, Project Management Office (PMO), Site News | 0 Comments

It's always gratifying when respected publications take notice of the work we do to bring the trials and triumphs of project management (and project managers) to public attention. This past month, Baseline Magazine has featured our work more than once, and we wanted to point our readers' attention to these articles.

First, in their March/April print edition, our State of the PMO 2010 study was the subject of a short article advising PMO directors of the next steps required to keep the PMO in the good graces of the C-level. And, last week, the Strategies for Project Recovery research was featured in their e-newsletter in the form of a terrific slideshow that summarizes most of the main points in the research report.

The one comment I'd make about the way the research was presented was the emphasis they placed on the reasons for failure (7 slides) as opposed to the strategies for recovery (3 slides). Since recovery was the main topic of the report, I'd have preferred to see the emphasis reversed! The research actually contains very good news about project recovery, in that when companies have a recovery process, they are successful in turning around projects in the vast majority of cases. While it's important to understand what leads to failure, knowing how to recoup from it is what puts dollars (or euros) in the organization's pocket.
