How to apply effective project governance skills and business-focused project board management
One of the key contributing factors to project business success is having direction applied by effective senior management. This is entirely different to what project managers do in their projects, and it will be different to what you already know from your regular management experience thus far …
“Only Senor Managers Need Apply …”
Do you know what the duties and behaviours are of senior management such as the Project Sponsor, Business Executive or Project Board members?
Do you know who is accountable for work results, and who is responsible for performing work processes in your organisation?
Senior managers constantly grapple between the competing pressures of maintaining operational ‘business as usual’ while directing their organisation’s adoption of change in a volatile and competitive business environment.
Never before has there been a stronger need for business change and project governance from the top You’re about to discover the most spectacular gold mine covering the art and science of Project Governance ever created for commercial sale.
“ Get A Grip On Project Governance… ”
The benefits gained from using my Project Governance and Direction Primer is to give members of the Project Board and other critical senior project stakeholders (such as Sponsors and Executives), an invaluable ‘toolbox’ laying out of the context, purpose, role and structure of how projects are governed and directed by the Project Board in easy, bite-sized steps.
It is designed for individuals who have responsibilities related to governing and directing projects that are being managed using the PRINCE2 methodology.
Here are a Dozen Strong Reasons why YOU need to read on:
1. If any part of your job is to:
- Drive through strategic change
- Underwrite or fund project endeavours
- Assess your organisation’s capabilities with regard to a set of project critical success factors and against a “good practice” model of project management, and be able to describe and understand the benefits of using project methodologies such as PRINCE2
- Be responsible for setting up or the management of a Project Office (PMO)
- Determine the applicability of PRINCE2® to your organisation
- Formulate Business Cases which justify the establishment of a PRINCE2® approach to project or change management

… Then you need my Effective Project Governance Primer.

Governance was created as a solution for organizations that had methodology, standards, and processes already in place, but found that significant problems with effectiveness and efficiency were still occurring.
Looking at the problem, methodologies only answered the question, “What should be done?” but failed to answer the question, “Who should do it?”
Without governance, there is a loophole. The manager in charge of the work being audited can say; “I didn’t know about that rule.” Or, “I didn’t know it applied in this situation.”
5. Governance closes that loophole.
Governance makes it very clear, in advance of the work, who is accountable to make sure that work follows the methodology, standards, and processes of the organisation.
