7 Key Ingredients to Successful Project Execution and Completion

Spearheading a project isn’t a walk in the park. You would be responsible for its planning, execution and completion, as well as the aggregation of separate tasks by teams and individuals into a cohesive whole. Grace under pressure is always an essential, but below are seven other key ingredients to lead a project to success:


How to Manage Multiple Projects – 5 Things You Need
Managing any project can be tricky. Your job as the manager is to ensure each moving part is working towards a common goal, and diminish, if not completely eliminate, unnecessary processes that merely waste resources. Delegation is a necessity, and in order to be an effective manager, you need to understand the project inside out, and from different perspectives, i.e., from the perspectives of your team members, because this is how you gain their respect and loyalty.

This being the case, it is fair to say that managing multiple projects across different teams, all at once, is exponentially trickier. But it can be done and has been done. We list five things on how to manage effectively multiple projects simultaneously.

The Future of Integrated PM Solutions
Project management (PM) has always been about accomplishing a goal within a constraint, or a set of goals within a set of constraints. And while the core theory hasn’t changed, the route businesses travel between point A and point B is experiencing a dramatic shift.

Change Management 101: Ensuring Project Management Software Adoption
So you’ve decided that your organization has reached a point where a project management software is a necessity and is ready to invest the time, money, and effort to implement it. Planning doesn’t always equal reality, as the looming question of adoption is a normal hurdle for management to clear.

According to Pinnacle Enterprise Management Specialists, adoption is a real challenge in implementing project management solutions. Will the workforce use the tool dependably? How long will it take before they’re truly adept at operating the software? Will it end up unused and gathering dust after all the time and money invested in it?

Making Project Managers’ Lives Easier and More Productive Through Automation
Project management is a continuous struggle for balance between time, cost and quality. It’s no wonder why project managers want to make things more efficient and effective as possible.

Some may think manually creating a project plan is easy, since it’s formulaic. But if you ask any project manager, that isn’t necessarily always the case.
