It is with great pleasure that we announce the presence of Deloitte (Tax and Legal department) at the Yearly Project Management conference which will take place in Brussels on November 23rd.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE – PROJECT MANAGEMENT MATTERS

Leading organizations across sectors and geographic borders have been steadily embracing project management as a way to control spending and improve project results. When the recession began, this practice became even more important. Executives discovered that adhering to project management methods and strategies reduced risks, cut costs and  improved success rates—all vital to surviving the economic crisis.

This is how the Project Management Institute describes the importance of Project Management in all organizations, and especially in uncertain and risky times like in contemporary economy. Although this seems to be an evident truth, and although many organizations state that they do work with project management principles and strategies, it is still true that:

  • For some companies, some established PM processes are in place, but no monitoring or evaluation are foreseen*
  • PM is rarely aligned with organization’s objectives*
  • The challenges that most PMs emphasize tend to be poor practice, bad planning and bad management decisions*

(*from Axelos_PPM Benchmarking Report 2017)

DELOITTE’S CASE STUDY

With this yearly event QRP International wants to hear the stories of organizations that have implemented Project Management, and specifically decided to start this journey with a well-known method like PRINCE2.

Adriana is now part of the team implementing PRINCE2 as Project Management standard methodology across the Tax Practice of Deloitte Belgium.

My presentation will be covering the challenges of implementing a project management methodology within a professional services environment. I will explain the audience how Deloitte Belgium Tax and Legal department has managed this change management project, the challenges we faced and the lessons learnt from the 1st phase of the transformation we are still going through.
