Fast times

Project success is no longer defined by meeting budget and schedule targets. Today's organizations are increasingly defining project success in relation to product quality and outcomes aligned to corporate strategies. This article features the vice president of Compuware Corporation's Changepoint Solutions (Toronto, Ontario, CA) discussing her organization's approach to managing its projects. In doing so, it explains the key activities in Changepoint's project management approach; it describes the organization's approach to communicating its project management methods and strategies across the entire enterprise via its project management office (PMO). It then identifies how Changepoint links its projects to its strategic goals, how the organization evolved its project management approach to remain competitive during current economic downturn, and how project management can help organizations achieve business success.
