It is commonly known that “two heads are better than one”. Imagine if your company can capitalize on its entire talent pool, what would be the cumulated experience/expertise? Your company is an ocean when it comes to competencies, it is a matter of creating synergy.
We applied this concept on a real case scenario for one of our clients in the Energy sector. The ‘silo way of working’ in their PMO department and limited communication among PMOs and Program managers prevent from having project transversality and result in:
- A lack of visibility on the different programs regarding budget, timeline, resources, tools because the information is scattered across each Program/Project;
- Project overlaps which ultimately affect the budget and resources of the Program/Project.
The standard approach would suggest you to create a competence matrix to identify training and development opportunities for each talent in your organisation. However, the innovative approach would recommend a focus on competency coordination in order to thrive in a dynamic and changing environment.
