Project Management is a competency that leaders can use in their organizations to handle increasing complexity with higher success rates and acceptance, and lower uncertainty and costs. Following are just a few examples of the organizational inefficiencies that pose the above-mentioned risks, but can be effectively handled through use of the Project Management competency:

A great example of the Effects of Project Managent on Organizations is the Standish Group publication of 1995's “CHAOS” report. This prestigious consulting firm surveyed 365 information technology executive managers in the United States who managed more than 8,380 information technology application projects.

As the title of the study suggests, the projects were in a state of chaos. United States companies spent more than $250 billion each year in the early 1990s on approximately 175,000 information technology application development projects. Examples of these projects included creating a new database for a state department of motor vehicles, developing a new system for car rental and hotel reservations, and implementing a client-server architecture for the banking industry. The survey found that the average cost of an information technology application development project for a large company was more than $2.3 million; for a medium company, it was more than $1.3 million; and for a small company, it was more than $434,000. Their study reported that the overall success rate of information technology projects was only 16.2 percent. The surveyors defined success as meeting project goals on time and on budget.

The study also found that more than 31 percent of information technology projects were canceled before completion, costing U.S. companies and government agencies more than $81 billion. The authors of this study were adamant about the need for better project management in the information technology industry. They explained, “Software development projects are in chaos, and we can no longer imitate the three monkeys—hear no failures, see no failures, speak no failures

Follow-up studies done by the Standish Group showed some improvement in the statistics for information technology projects in the past decade:

  • The number of successful IT projects has more than doubled, from 16 percent in 1994 to 34 percent in 2002.
  • The number of failed projects has been cut in half, from 31 percent in 1994 to 15 percent in 2002.
  • The U.S. spent about the same amount of money on IT projects in 1994 and 2002 ($250 billion and $255 billion, respectively), but the amount of money wasted on challenged and failed projects was down to $55 billion in 2002 compared to $140 billion in 1994.
Even though there have been significant improvements in managing information technology projects, there is still much room for improvement. The best news is that project managers are learning how to succeed more often. “The reasons for the increase in successful projects vary. First, the average cost of a project has been more than cut in half. Better tools have been created to monitor and control progress and better skilled project managers with better management processes are being used. The fact that there are processes is significant in itself.”

All organizations use projects as the way to translate strategies into actions and objectives into realities. Some are projectized companies, being that their entire organization is run in a Project Management format, with all their line managers reporting to a Project Manager, while others run a Matrix Organization where project Managers and Line Managers have equal decision making levels.

The bottom-line is that the key for most organizations to remain competitive in a high-growth and fast-changing environment is strong delivery capability made possible by uniform and effective processes, structure, and discipline of planning and monitoring initiatives that translate strategy into reality.

Project Management is a competency that leaders can use in their organizations to handle increasing complexity with higher success rates and acceptance, and lower uncertainty and costs.
