Upcoming Webinars

Compliance and Internal Controls within Project Management

Jun 27, 2017 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

One of the major challenges during the project gathering requirements phase, is to be assured that all requirements have been met. The more accurate the job is, the more likely your project will succeed. In this context, how often do PMs consider Compliance and Internal Control at this stage? Today, in a world with growing organizations, keen to launch their IPOs, with increasingly cross-department projects, increasingly integrated systems, corporate compliance is one of the fastest growing areas. Projects need to deliver efficiency, but at the same time, must comply with internal policies and ensure there will be elements to protect organizations from the growing risk of fraud. In this context, PMs who are familiar with the characteristics of corporate governance and internal control principles are more likely to succeed.

Topic Teasers Vol. 96: Assigning the Blame

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Okay, I’m not proud of how this project ended, but management is blaming me…me! There were lots of moving people and parts to this one, and we knew from the beginning it would be a challenge. But how do I react to the accusations? I want to be sure no one goes away thinking it was my fault, because I don’t think it is. What do I say so that the proper culprits will be blamed and my reputation comes out unscathed?
A. A great number of projects fail because upper management fails to properly and completely share the goals and accompanying evaluative metrics they will use to decide successes from failures. Not knowing what is expected of you, your team and your suppliers means you cannot then be blamed when you fail to meet their dreams.
B. The rule is that project managers are not supposed to ever do the actual activity or user story work of a project. If you are only in essence the “supervisor,” how is it fair to be held accountable when others do not do as they have promised? If participants led you to believe that your schedule and budgets were acceptable, they should be reported to management by name and I.D. number when things “go south” or fail.
C. If you work in an industry where you rely heavily on contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers and even other third-party technical entities, your success is directly related to their reliability. If a project fails because of their non-compliance to contracts or promises, get in writing from your procurement team that they will never hire this group again—at least for any of your projects.
D. If you are the project manager, then one of your roles is to represent all the bits, pieces and assembled individuals who had their fingers in this endeavor—whether it was a success or a failure. As a result, you need to step up and assume the blame, not passing it on even if it could be objectively done with great accuracy. All you can do is learn from it.
