COP (Control Over Projects)

WHAT IS COP?
  • A set of tools and techniques to maximise project success
  • Targeted at Business Executives (NOT Project personnel)
  • Overlays the project management methodology used by your project team
  • Cuts through the jargon
  • Easy to use and highly effective
  • Immediately puts control back in your hands
THE COP PACK The COP pack typically starts with an entertaining and insightful 120 minute workshop explaining the key failure points and applying them to your business. You will come away with a worksheet with a number of good ideas for immediate implementation. You will also receive several handy tools to provide you with ongoing reminders, prompts, templates and examples. The tools include a mobile phone COP App, a paper book and eBook, and login access to restricted COP website content, including handy project artefact templates and examples.
MANAGEMENT FRUSTRATION
We sat in dozens of Steering Committees and realised that management were not asking the right questions and were not being provided with the information they really needed to know.
UNIQUE INSIGHTS
COP is a concise and potent guide to project success. It is different to other project management methodologies. We summarise the key controls you really need to know, and then tell you what really happens in the real world and what to look out for.
THE COP MOBILE APP
The mobile phone app is particularly useful if you want a quick reminder of the key control points to watch out for and questions to ask (e.g. in a meeting).
COP OUTCOMES
COP is easy to implement and will reduce the time you spend on project and IT issues, reduce your stress and immediately increase the success of your projects.
COP COMPLEMENTS YOUR PROJECT METHODOLOGY
COP is not a project management methodology or quality framework (Prince2, P3M3, PMBok, COBIT, Custom in-house approach). It is designed to complement whatever project methodology is in place at your organisation. Most organisations have had PMO and project methodologies in place for at least a decade. However project failures persist.
COP takes that next crucial step beyond your methodology, and provides insights to your executives that are crucial for any project to succeed, no matter what the methodology being used.
COP APPLIES TO ANY PROJECT TYPE
COP applies to any size of project; to any project type (IT or non-IT); and regardless of whether a waterfall or more agile approach is being used. COP applies to all industry sectors.
