High visibility

When organizations increase the visibility of their project work, both internally and externally, with both different departments and units and with different stakeholders and information sources, they are more likely to reduce redundant project activities and costs as well as improve project performance and return on their investment. This article discusses how several organizations benefited from increasing the visibility of their project work, organizations that include Surrey Satellite Technology (Guildford, UK) and its partners on the Beijing 1 earth-monitoring micro-satellite project and BAE Systems (London, UK) and its internal partners for military and commercial passenger aircraft. It identifies the benefits of practicing decentralized enterprise project management, of focusing on project visibility, and of sharing information--between projects and organizations--on the skills, competencies, and experiences that can help project teams more effectively implement projects. Accompanying this article is a sidebar discussing how building material supplier Lafarge (Paris, France) used software solutions developed by RVR Systems (Paris, France) to manage its decentralized structure, record important information, and comply with government regulations.
