Concerned that you and your organisation are trying to accomplish too many things at once? Without the right approach to managing a large volume of work, trying to do too much at once will result in less being achieved than could otherwise be the case. That, by the way, is normal. Just setting priorities isn’t the answer because even low-priority tasks need to be done in the end and neglecting them stores up trouble for later.
The good news is that adopting an intelligent, comprehensive, and systematic approach to managing a portfolio of projects can, in fact, allow you and your organisation to handle a bigger volume of work than you would manage with a more ad hoc style of management. The key is adopting a consistent method that everybody involved understands and bringing everything to the table, as it were. Completeness is the critical enabler of the calmness and individual focus neeeded to handle a lot of things in parallel. David can help you set up such a system with a sufficiently “light touch” process that your team are not deterred by complexity. David has done exactly this for nearly every organisation he works with because they end up realising they need something like this.
David also has specific experience in the facilitation of collaborative projects, out-sourcing, public-private partnerships, facilities management contracts, and other situations involving complex relationships between organisations. These situations, in particular, benefit from the additional insights into the human side of working life. Mastery of interpersonal relationship skills is an enabler of everything else.
The typical engagement begins one-to-one with you, the leader, usually on a periodic basis, exploring the nature of the issues you face and developing a strategy to tackle them. Thereafter, it’s likely that we will involve your wider team, and possible representatives of the other organisations with whom you are working, depending on the situation.
Please get in touch for a free initial meeting or conversation. You can be sure you’ll get valuable new insights even in that time.
