I’m a Project Manager…get me outta here!

I’m Bernard Carroll, co-founder of Enverian.

I have spent over 20 years managing and delivering projects and portfolios in the IT, Pharma, Medical Devices and Utilities sectors.

During that time I have learned (the hard way!) that Portfolio Project Management (PPM) isn’t easy to deliver consistently, systematically and assuredly!

In this series of 5 blogs I’m going to highlight a number of PPM challenges, individually selected to illustrate an aspect of PPM that most people find challenging and then to give my view (backed up with a video) to show rather than tell how the challenge can be addressed.

The 5 blogs are…

1. The Dreaded Ping

2. Consolidate the Portfolio

3. One Version of the Truth

4. I’m a Project Manager…get me outta here!

5. PPM doesn’t come cheap! Right? 

In the previous blog I looked at One Version of the Truth. Here follows Blog #4.

So where was everybody when this project was going downhill??

Very often, projects can spiral out of control – SLOWLY. Success in project management is often down to early detection of problems, management of risks, and effective communication. But that’s not enough.

This is why we created Enverian PPM (Portfolio Project Management).

In just 3 minutes, I can show you how Enverian PPM can be the Project Managers best ally when projects run into difficulty. Escalating issues in a timely fashion, leveraging senior management support, and open communication can divert energies from negative reactions to proactive responses.
