Project Coaching

Projects are Social SystemsLike other systems, a project consists of a set of elements that are in relationship to each other and are characterized by circular dependencies.

The four pillars of a project system are the project objectives, the project culture, the necessary skills and the structure: targeted interventions eliminate the vulnerabilities in the collaboration, improve the leadership skills of the project manager and streamline the project management processes. An in-depth analysis of the current situation and the intense discussion with key stakeholders ensure that individually suitable measures can be defined and sustainably implemented.The four pillars of a project system are the project objectives, the project culture, the necessary skills and the structure: targeted interventions eliminate the vulnerabilities in the collaboration, improve the leadership skills of the project manager and streamline the project management processes.

More Successful Projects through Syststemic Coaching

Coaching is a facilitated process that identifies the root cause problem areas and addresses those problems directly. It is common, that project management training is prescribed to project managers and team members, but the conditions within the organization of professional project management are not given. Through an in-depth analysis of the situation, project coaching provides only such measures which specifically address the individual concerns and problems. This will prevent that only symptoms are attacked and financial resources are squandered. Due to the fact that the root cause problem areas are often a combination of lack of structures and soft factors, coaching must equally address hard and soft factors in the form of a structured change process.
Standardized project management structures within an enterprise will create transparency and decision quality. A parent project coordination ensures the optimum and economically sensible use of resources. A coordinated project communication is the basis for motivation and commitment. The establishment of a project management structure and the necessary accompanying culture does not work on demand. Rather a process of change must be initiated here, according to all rules of the art.
A significant quality factor for coaching is located in the sustainability of achieved status. The primary purpose of coaching is only reached when future projects of the customer deliver at the right time and the predetermined costs the right deliverable and quality.
