Strategic projects by nature are not the typical run-of-the-mill endeavors that you have undertaken numerous times in the past. They are larger in scale, have more strategic importance, maintain a higher degree of visibility, and are more difficult to execute. These projects are so unique and important that your organization simply cannot afford for them to fail. Additionally, it is quite likely that a company’s internal project management resources will be ill-equipped to address the unique challenges of strategic projects. Because of this, executives often look outside the organization for the project management support and technologies required to successfully plan, monitor, and control their strategic projects
You may need project management consulting help if one or more of the following are true:
- Significant financial consequence for delays
- Little or no track record executing this type of project
- High degree of uncertainty or risk
- Large number of cross-functional team members that are geographically dispersed
- High-level and constant focus, intensity, and attention from executives
- Requires many of your company’s most valuable resources
- Elevated visibility in the external marketplace
