Reduced focus on project management jeopardising business transformation

PatMillar

  • Improving project management capability last in IT priority list
  • 37 percent admit that up to half of all projects delivered late
  • One third rate their project delivery capability as just satisfactory or poor
  • Widespread inconsistencies in project management practices
  • Growth of dedicated project management offices up to 63 percent

      To mark the occasion of International Project Management Day, leading project management and IT consulting specialists, Clarion Consulting today released the results of its annual survey into project management practices in Irish organisations.  The report reveals a reduced focus on improving project management capability with Irish organisations ranking it last in a list of top 10 IT priorities.  While the growth of dedicated project management offices has increased again this year, up to 63 percent from 46 percent in 2007, widespread inconsistencies in project management practices remain.  One third of organisations rate their project delivery capability as just satisfactory or poor while 37 percent admit that up to half of all projects are delivered late.  Now in its third year, the survey was carried out on-line across public and private sector organisations during the month of July 2009.

      “Many project management practitioners display a fundamental lack of understanding of how project management can help business transformation,” comments Pat Millar, managing director, Clarion Consulting.  “While the bulk of organisations are focused on cost-cutting, business process re-engineering and new product or service introductions, they fail to see that these objectives can be achieved by applying the principles of project management.  Project management can serve as a real driving force for organisational change in lean times and failure to invest in that capability can seriously hamper business transformation efforts,” he adds.

      There appears to be a sustained level of project completion over the last 12 months despite the economic downturn.  Over half of all respondents or 54 percent completed more than 21 projects in this timeframe, a marginal decrease of just 3 percent on 2008. However, results also reveal an increase in the exclusive use of internal project managers over external ones, up to 46 percent from 29 percent in 2008.  This suggests that some companies at least are reducing their dependency on contract staff and hoping that existing permanent staff can sustain project delivery levels with fewer resources.  Similarly, 17 percent of companies reported an overall decrease in the number of project managers employed compared to 2008.
      The Ireland Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI) welcomes the increasing adoption of project management offices to deliver more predictable project outcomes, up to 63 percent from 46 percent in 2007.  Liam Dillon, President, Ireland Chapter (PMI) said:  “We are delighted to see the continual growth in project management offices in this research. There is a growing trend in best-practice affiliated companies to place continual emphasis on suitable governance models incorporating appropriate processes and methodologies.”

      Half of all respondents “sometimes” use certified project management professionals on their project teams, revealing a risk of expertise and knowledge gaps.  Pat Millar believes that companies need to ensure that internal and external staff have the necessary skills and experience to successfully deliver positive project outcomes.  “Skills deficits can be effectively addressed by mentoring and coaching programs as well as traditional training to build internal expertise. With less experienced project managers, the role of the steering committee and project sponsor also needs to include more attention to governance and oversight.”

      There has been a steady increase in the number of organisations using Project Portfolio Management (PPM) software, rising from 12 percent in 2007 to 29 percent in 2009.  However, 37 percent of organisations said that they have no plans to introduce PPM in the short term while 50 percent were unsure of their plans.

      Clarion Consulting conducts regular research into the Irish market for the purposes of encouraging best IT practice and knowledge-sharing with the wider IT and business community.  Each respondent to this survey will receive a personalised report benchmarking their project management capability against other contributors.  Hard and soft copies of our report “Building Real Competitive Advantage – An Analysis of Project Management Practices in Irish Organisations” are available on request frominfo@clarionconsulting.com or tel: (01) 802 5182.

      Clarion Consulting Over the Moon with Major UK Aerospace Contract

      David Bailey, NWAA and Robert Hughes, Clarion ConsultingLeading project management and IT consulting specialists, Clarion Consulting today announced its involvement in a STG£800,000 contract with the UK’s Northwest Aerospace Alliance (NWAA).   As part of the Northern Coaching Consortium, Clarion Consulting will provide programme and project management services for the coaching element of the NWAA’s Supply Chain Excellence (ASCE) programme.  Funded by the North West Development Agency (NWDA) to the value of STG£ 4.2 million, the objective of this three-year programme is to create a world competitive supply chain through mentoring, training and coaching to 45 member companies in the North West aerospace cluster.

      Commenting on the win, Robert Hughes, managing director of Clarion Consulting (UK) said:  “The contract recognises our ability to overcome the challenges in instilling project governance and control into such a major industrial programme.  We welcome the opportunity to work with the other members of the Northern Coaching Consortium to help the NWAA make a real contribution to the performance and success of the North West aerospace cluster.”

      Clarion Consulting provides the project management framework to oversee and control the coaching element of the ASCE programme, which is delivered via three other consortium members – Agile Business Solutions, Echevin Ltd and Unipart Expert Practices.  By setting up an online portal, geographically dispersed project teams can create and store documents, track project issues and manage resources and timescales through a common web-based interface.  This simple yet effective approach provides clear lines of communication between team members and establishes the type of structure which keeps the coaching programme firmly on track.

      The ASCE programme is the first co-ordinated approach from three aerospace primes – BAE Systems, Airbus UK and Rolls Royce plc – to improve the performance of the region’s aerospace industry.  Member companies are assessed against eleven required “foundation processes” such as leadership, strategic business planning and innovation management and are provided with coaching and training to help them to move along a five-stage model of supply chain excellence from “learner” to “world class” status.

      “The Clarion team not only brings in-depth expertise and knowledge of project management practices to the programme,” comments Dr. David Bailey, executive director operations, NWAA.  “It also makes a significant contribution to ongoing programme development through innovation and creativity.  They add real value to the ASCE program through their project management methodologies and frameworks and their practical approach ensures that member companies can access a comprehensive program of coaching and mentoring which will put them on a defined pathway to supply chain excellence and business success.”

      Clarion Consulting entered the UK market in 2007 with their acquisition of The Planning Loft.  The UK team, headed by industry veteran Robert Hughes has completed assignments for many high profile clients including BP, DHL and Royal Bank of Scotland.

      Survey Forecasts Permanent and Contract IT Staff Reductions

      Ronan Foley, Director, Clarion ConsultingLeading project management and IT consulting specialists, Clarion Consulting today released the second set of results from its survey into the evolving role of the IT function in Irish organisations.  Focusing on human resource issues, the survey reveals that just over one quarter or 28 percent of companies will be reducing IT staff numbers over the next year.  The primary drivers for staff reduction were cited as market conditions and pressures towards rationalisation.  Just 18 percent said they will be hiring people in the short term which compares to 35 percent in last year’s survey.  This year’s poll was conducted online and was completed by 120 public and private sector organisations.

      Of those companies hiring, 43 percent will hire a combination of permanent and temporary staff while 29 percent will hire temporary staff only.  This figure reflects a higher demand for temporary staff, up from 18 percent in last year’s survey.  “The results bear out our own experience on the ground,” according to Ronan Foley, director with Clarion Consulting.  “Companies are looking for flexible resourcing models which minimise impact on permanent headcount and avoid fixed cost.  There is a realisation that despite the economic slowdown, IT projects still need to be completed and many organisations are drawing on the availability and expertise of temporary staff to help them achieve that.”

      Trends in Temporary Staff
      The profile of temporary staff required varies from systems analysts, cited by 56 percent of companies to project managers and business intelligence analysts cited by 28 percent.  Temporary staff reductions are forecast across many IT functions with 44 percent suggesting that desktop support personnel, project managers and IT management could lose out. 

      We also took the opportunity to examine the performance of temporary staff versus permanent staff.  More than half of respondents or 57 percent said that temporary staff perform as well as permanent staff.  Just 8 percent cited permanent staff performance as superior to that of their temporary counterparts.

      Trends in Permanent Staff
      In looking at the profile of permanent staff, systems analysts and network administrators are in demand as are program and project managers.  Demand for network security professionals, however, does not appear to be as strong as in 2007.  Permanent staff reductions will include IT management roles, desktop support personnel and project managers.  “CIO’s will find it difficult to pay salary increases in the current climate,” according to Ronan Foley.  “For this reason, employee training and development plans will become critical allowing for upskilling and cross-skilling and providing a flexible workforce which can better respond to market challenges.”

      Recruitment Trends
      We took a detailed look at the recruitment process and asked companies to tell us about their processes in hiring temporary staff in particular.  74 percent said that they use recruitment agencies to source staff, a figure which is broadly in line with previous years.  However, when it comes to the use of Preferred Supplier Listings, there appears to be a shift away from set supplier choice, down from 41 percent in 2007 to just 30 percent in 2008.  Almost half of respondents or 47 percent characterised the search for temporary staff as “reasonably difficult” while just over one quarter (26 percent) said the process was “reasonably easy”.  Overall, the majority of companies or 69 percent are satisfied with the level of services from recruitment agencies.  Just over one fifth or 22 percent rated their performance as poor.

      Survey Reveals IT Function Under Increasing Pressure to Demonstrate Business Value

      Pat Millar, Managing Director, Clarion ConsultingLeading project management and IT consulting specialists, Clarion Consulting today released the results of a survey into the evolving role of the IT function in Irish organisations.  37 percent of respondents reveal that IT is under increasing pressure to demonstrate its business value to the organisation while 42 percent say that the function will become more strategic to the business in the current economic climate.  In terms of decision-making, just under one third (32 percent) have a senior IT person who sits on the board of directors.  While on the spending side, 38 percent of companies are forecasting a decrease in IT budgets over the next 12 months.  The survey was conducted online and was completed by 120 public and private sector organisations.

      “The harsher economic climate has put an increased emphasis on value for money and doing more with less,” according to Pat Millar, managing director, Clarion Consulting.  “IT professionals need to demonstrate that their operations are in line with industry best practice and are being delivered in a cost effective manner.  This involves actively seeking out opportunities for cost reduction and business performance improvements and many organisations have cited these as important priorities in the weeks and months ahead.”

      The Status of IT as a Function
      It is very encouraging to see an increase in board-level representation for IT, up from 17 percent in 2007 to 32 percent in 2008.  72 percent of companies cite IT as strategically valuable to the company as opposed to just 27 percent who see its role as simply supporting the business function.  Also on the positive side, 69 percent said that the IT function actively participates in strategy formulation and 67 percent said that IT’s profile was either strong or very strong.  Just one quarter characterised an attitude of “indifference” towards it.  In terms of future key objectives for the IT function, just over half (53 percent) cite the delivery of projects that support business growth as the most critical.  This is followed by the delivery of cost control initiatives which was cited by 20 percent.

      IT Spending and Decision-Making
      Almost one third (31 percent) of companies are forecasting a drop in IT spend of up to 10 percent over the next year.  7 percent cite this figure at a higher level of up to 20 percent.  These spending figures closely track business performance with 32 percent predicting revenue declines over the period.  However, this is balanced by 29 percent who forecast modest increases in IT budget of up to 10 percent and one quarter who are forecasting no change, year on year.

      In terms of project selection and decision-making processes, three quarters of companies have a forum for selecting IT project priorities.  However, 42 percent admit that not all business functions are represented at this forum.  Rather disappointingly, 35 percent of respondees said that IT spending decisions are made by senior business executives without input from IT.  “This statistic reflects the under-representation of IT at board level,” comments Pat Millar.  “IT needs to market itself better internally and position itself as a driver of innovation and strategy influencer if it is to protect its position within the organisation and grow its powerbase at board level.”

      Governance and Compliance
      Just 58 percent of companies actually have a fully documented and defined IT strategy in place.  This is a disappointingly high figure and represents a significant decrease on the 2007 figure which was recorded at 70 percent.  Of those companies with a strategy, just over one quarter (27 percent) have followed best practice and had it independently reviewed.  42 percent of companies said their IT strategy is “tightly” or “very tightly” aligned to business objectives while 46 cited this alignment as “reasonable”. 

      However, on the negative side, 64 percent of companies do not provide formal metrics for the IT function.  This represents a marked deterioration on the 2007 result when just 37 percent said that this was the case.  “We have to question the subjective nature of this information,” according to Pat Millar.  “How can IT professionals judge IT to be aligned to the business function in the absence of any metrics or evidence as to its contribution to business performance?  This is a disappointingly high figure and one which will have to be addressed by companies seeking to use IT as a tool to drive organisational agility.”
