How to simplify project management

0 votes

I've joined my current company fairly recently, and have identified a number of changes to make to the framework my business area use to manage projects and programs. We are moving towards a more Agile way of thinking and trying to launch some hybrid projects as I speak.

Any tips to help bring these colleagues round to a more efficient, fresh way of thinking?

It really depends on whether there is a defined project methodology in place and whether it is embraced and enforced by management.

In general, there is a minimum set of project documents that need to be managed for each project, number, content, and complexity of which increase with project scale and complexity itself.

One suggestion as a new company joiner, try to observe how things work, build a good relationship with the team and align with their approach as a first stage and eventually you will get their buy-in and collaboration on future projects, then it would become easier to contribute your insights and new ways.

Remember that you have to let the team organize itself. Your job is to coach the team to think differently so they can figure it out. It is not your job to tell them what to do or how to do it. If you try to do so, you can expect resistance.
