Virtual project management
and how it can be successfully introduced
The business world has become complex – and so have the challenges facing those involved with it. In globalized markets, teams operate across countries and time zones. Moreover, recent events have shown that we can never be sure to have colleagues, customers and suppliers available in person when we need them. To achieve our goals together, we have to be able to work together flexibly – around the globe, around the clock. What this calls for: digital competence, agile methods in project management, and the right collaboration tools. That way, you will not only be able to cope with short-term crises. You will stay competitive in the long run.
Agility takes your projects further.
Agile project management is not new. Kanban was developed back in 1947 – to increase productivity in the Japanese automotive industry. SCRUM has been standard in IT for years. The idea behind it is simple: Projects often fail due to the complexity of the products or goals they involve. This is why SCRUM goes for the elementary components and organizes them in manageable units. The process is optimized and added value generated more quickly. Whether Kanban or SCRUM: The nice thing about both methods is that you can handle your projects in less time with less friction to the satisfaction of all project participants. Try it.
Collaboration tools give your team maximum flexibility.
Digital project management is efficient project management. That is because project participants can only work together flexibly around the globe and around the clock if they do so virtually. With the right project management software, everybody works hand in hand and stays on top of things – even external service providers, suppliers and customers who do not have access to your company network.
