How to Run Successful High-Tech Project-Based Organizations by Fergus O'Connell
This volume offers practical steps to creating a Structured Project Management (SPM) system in your organization. Based on the ten steps in Fergus O'Connell's previous book, How To Run Successful Projects, it expands on that concept to offer a solution to keeping today's high-tech companies competitive, on budget, and on schedule. Using SPM company-wide, you create a system wherein unforeseen challenges or problems occur on a localized level where they do not affect the system-wide enterprise. All project tasks are described as being both unique and part of a larger scheme, giving definition and a sense of importance to individuals, departments, divisions, and an entire company. From the individual on up, smaller projects are completed and compiled, layer upon layer, until your whole organization is producing at peak levels.
