A Framework for Effective Project Governance

This report presents a framework for effective project governance and control combining both hard (processes and tools) with soft (people and culture) factors. Excellent Read! (100 Pages)

When it comes to project success, business leaders often lean towards improving processes and tools. However, they are one part of the puzzle. The other, perhaps even more important, part is the human factors such as people and culture, which are often overlooked.

This research focuses on uncovering the important role played by soft factors such as culture and people in determining project success - on-time, on-budget, delivery of business benefits/value. Excellent discussion for the CIO who wants to go beyond processes and tools. 

Do human factors play a role in project success? If so, what? This research's objective was to answer these questions. Towards that end, it explored:

  • What is project control?
  • How do we implement effective project control?
  • What processes and tools help make project governance more effective?
  • What human factors drive project success?
  • How to put together an effective project governance and control capability comprising of both tools and human factors to maximize project sucess?

An excellent discussion in ensuring project success.
