Serious budget exceedances, inability to meet project deadlines or even discontinuation of projects – that is the stuff that any project leaders’ nightmares are made of.
Project controlling as an independent tool for reporting to the decision-making body plays a crucial role especially in highly complex projects with many participants. As a result, it is not sufficient to simply cross off appointments and control budgets. Latent risks and dangerous quality-defects can only be recognised with much experience and a professional attention to detail.
Employing a project controller or a controlling team can accomplish far more than a competent professional analysis of the project’s status and the reporting to the decision-making body.
Within the projects that we accompanied in a controlling function, our consultants played an integrative role from the moderation of conflicts through to reaching a consensus. Divergent developments were avoided by timely coordination and thus costs saved. The definition and introduction of project processes have reduced decision paths and thereby also the project duration.
