Project management is a profession
Critical Minds sees project management as a profession. Traditionally, a project schedule provides insight into priorities within a project or the required capacity of a department. We are convinced that planning has much more to offer. For example, a realistic planning first of all enables you to get a better grip on your projects and the associated aspects, such as time, money, quality and scope. By monitoring these aspects of your project, you can always get a good picture of the current state of the project and thus also sketch an overall picture of the functioning of the organization as a whole.
In addition, with the right way of project management you can recognize trends and developments in good time and oversee the impact of this at an early stage. This enables you to limit risks and take advantage of opportunities. By applying this correctly, this leads to lead time reduction and cost savings.
With our years of experience in project management and lead time reduction, we can quickly take steps for your organization. How can we help you?
Our principles of project management
With our years of experience in project management and lead time reduction, we can quickly take steps for your organization. To arrive at a planning that provides these insights, we use the following principles.
Focus on projects
Critical Minds sees planning as an integral steering tool. We provide a workable product with a balance between details and the necessary information to manage all projects in the chain, fully tailored to the wishes and possibilities within your organization.
Controlling for deviations
Projects are always in motion and require realistic and flexible planning. We immediately implement deviations in the planning, make possible consequences for the end date and budget immediately visible so that the project team can make adjustments.
We bring together all stakeholders of a project to draw up a schedule. This leads to great involvement of all parties for the goal to be achieved and provides clarity about the responsibilities. This not only ensures more efficient cooperation, but also prevents miscommunication, because everyone works with one and the same truth.
To a higher level
Curious how we can take project management within your organization to a higher level? Then feel free to contact us!
As a consultant, we first look at how project management is currently set up. Based on the desired insights, we then make a plan together, offering concrete tools to realize this plan. In this way we provide the necessary templates, which can be used immediately in practice. Consider, for example, templates for schedules or control reports. In addition, we also train the staff to ensure that not only the tooling works, but that the people who have to carry out the work can of course also handle it properly.
As an interim manager, we provide operational support within the project teams in the field of project management. We do this not so much as a planner, but really as Critical Mind. This means that you can count on the support of a professional with the right expertise to help the project and the team move forward. An important part of this is the continuous focus on improvement. For example, we always look at where things can be done even better and, where possible, try to tackle this directly in practice, so that improvement is immediately visible.
