Do you sense that the uncontrolled proliferation of PM tools and templates is making it harder, rather than easier, to plan and implement projects?

Your benefit

Working with you, we will ensure that your projects achieve their objectives at minimum cost and that common standards for carrying out projects at your company are accepted and put into practice.

Our approach includes:

  • Analysis of resources and deficiencies with a view to improving your project management
  • Support for a company-wide commitment in respect of the aims and approach of the optimisation project
  • Joint development of a hands-on process model to ensure interdepartmental management of key PM processes, tools and templates
  • Design and implementation of a taylor-made PM training concept

Your challenge
Project kick-off workshops, reviews, lessons learned....
These and other workshops are important milestones in the course of a project.

Project leaders are frequently faced with the challenge of assuming a neutral role as facilitator and moderator whilst also setting out their stance as a leader of the project. To help them bridge this dilemma, we assist project leaders with the preparation and implementation of workshops.

Your benefit
Mastering a broad spectrum of facilitation techniques and methodological expertise is the foundation for the planning and implementation of goal-oriented, yet inspirational workshops.

We will handle the facilitation, leaving you free to concentrate on your core role as a project leader and pressing ahead with your specific topics and interests.

Our consultants will not only steer clarification and decision-making processes in an efficient way - they will also ensure constructive dialogue and professional documentation of results.

Your challenge
Top executives are responsible for the success of projects, even though they are often far away from day-to-day project operations.

Your benefit

  • The executive project management workshop provides you with key control levers for efficient project management steering
  • True-to-life simulation exercises guide you through the project pathway from initiation to project completion
  • Brief technical and methodological inputs coupled with in-depth reflection sessions and evaluations ensure effective transfer of best practice

Target group
Top executives and senior management

Your challenge
In light of the increasingly complex challenges faced by companies, the importance of professional project work is continuously growing.

Being able to lead a heterogeneous team is one of the decisive factors contributing to the success or failure of a project. Project leaders do not generally have line management authority. They are nonetheless in charge of mixed teams with a broad range of expertise, interests, personalities and often cultural backgrounds, working against a tight schedule. The project leadership programme explores these and other key issues in the field of team leadership, communication, personal values, conflict and many others and systematically prepares project leaders for this extremely demanding role.

Your benefit

  • You will learn the key success factors for getting support from others without hierarchical authority
  • You will reflect on your own personality and leadership traits
  • You will handle feedback and conflict scenarios within projects in a constructive and focused manner
  • You will familiarise yourself with the main control levers for developing a high-performance team and transfer them to your own projects
  • The involvement of superiors in the programme, coupled with one-on-one coaching and work on live participant projects, ensures maximum transfer of best practice

Hybrides Projektmanagement

Your challenge
Reorganisation projects often scrutinize employee and executive behaviours that have been learned over many years. Compare it to the motion sequences of elite sportspeople becoming fully automatic through years of training. If the competition calls for new behaviours, it often means taking a rocky road to acquire these new skills. All the more so since we are not only talking about individual employees, but about the mindset of an entire organisation. At the heart of the change are values such as customer focus, entrepreneurship and the acceptance of more responsibility.

Working closely with you, orange cpm plans and steers this multifaceted change process.

Your benefit

  • We ensure the systematic involvement of relevant stakeholders and work with you to develop a structure that furthers the objectives of the project, in line with your strategy
  • We envisage communication from the perspective of internal and external clients and draw up a taylor-made communication concept for your project
