The techniques .. the knowledge gained from PM.. are added value to a customer when starting a project.. Some customers may not have the experience on the cost of the project .. and they under-estimate the cost which may affect their budget.. some of them do not relate cost and time together .. so they may face funding difficulties as the project goes on..

therefore, being a PM .. with the knowledge you gained.. you will help your customer :
* identify and develop the detail scope - if not detailed
* Better estimate the project vs. the time to complete the poject
* identify the added value to the investment made
* plan the execution to allow the customer identify his funding plan.

PM allows focus and control to exist. It enables the project's success and therefore the customer's success.

I would like to point out, many customer may not have the idea on the exact project scope during kickoff. Most likely they need to project management to help them for eliminate out scope items and to implement the system on their schedule.

How does Project Management adds value to our customers? Do we just follow the 5 Process Groups in each project the same way each time or do we add value at some point?
Why is this important to your customer? Is it important at all?
Why is this important within your organization? Is it important at all?

I just find this topic so interesting, once we get the experienced and get confortable Project Management tools, we often find ourself just there doing nothing else. (And I don't mean scope creep)...

Can anyone comments?

Skills from project management will help us to put a structured approach and transform there “AsIs” process to “ToBe” Process and enable a stable Operations, to deliver consistent results.

All comments above are valid. Business has an idea - creates a business case usually based on generalities. By the Time the PM is involved the project is approved with a set budget, time boxed and provided very limited resources.
The PM adds values as the business partner and technology partner, working with and through others to solve the problems, setting expectations. Bridging the gap between technology and users. Enabling user efficiencies and saving the organization monies. Transparent communications for informed decision, removing impediments, maintaining the big picture, ensuring tasks are completed as scheduled meeting expectations and saving monies. We add value by Problem solving. Collaboration, providing resolution, coordination and organizing activates to achieve desired results.

Victoria - I like your approach, I think your answer is on the right track.

The process of solving the problem itself it's indeed and added value, also collaboration, providing resolution, coordination and organizing activates to achieve desired results.
