Choosing the right individual, team or organisation to deliver projects for your business is essential to your growth and success.
Entrepreneurs, business owners, and other stakeholders should know what to look for when deciding who should manage their projects. Because projects are designed to develop new products, services or processes, it is vital that they are managed by individuals or teams that have the right level of skill, experience, and expertise.
Our blog post explores the best methods for sourcing expert project management professionals in the Netherlands.
Project management is the application of processes, methods, skills, knowledge, and experience to successfully meet project objectives. This business function is guided by fairly rigid final deliverables and constrained to a finite timescale and budget, which can make it challenging to manage in today’s complex world.
It also involves a great deal of teamwork and communication both internally and externally, from external vendors to diverse teams formed from a variety of business functions.
Running point on a few projects doesn’t give an individual the same expertise as a trained, professional project manager. An experienced professional is skilled in the management of all the phases of a project despite its scale or importance including initiating, planning, executing, monitoring, controlling, and closing.
In my experience as a consultant, I’ve witnessed how insider knowledge of the local market can transform the outcome of a project. Possessing knowledge of local vendors, businesses, processes, and timelines can help you streamline your project management function far more efficiently than an external consultant that doesn’t share the same familiarity with the locale.
Therein lies the value of hiring project management professionals who are knowledgeable about local matters, policies, and laws.
Finding the right project management expert
Due to the nature of the project management industry, expertise within the region can go a long way in ensuring enhanced collaboration and communication. It facilitates the highest value and leverages the best services for a streamlined project management function.
Whether you believe that a project manager is simply a conduit that will successfully lead a project as long as your company has the right systems and tools or believe that a project manager can lead any type of project, once trained, it’s clear that finding the right expertise is critical to the success of your project.
Project management is swiftly becoming a strategic career path and a critical function for many businesses. By 2027, it’s anticipated that there will be 87.7 million individuals working in the project management function.
As digitalisation picks up speed and rapid innovations continue to transform the industry on a near-daily basis, a project management consultant will have a hand on the pulse of the industry. They will understand exactly how to leverage the right solutions to ensure successful project completion – meeting deadlines, and exceeding targets in the process.
