Achieve a Minimum Saving of 20 Hours per Week on project delivery
Professional service firms (PSFs) are often faced with the challenge of delivering projects on time and within budget. However, many PSFs struggle with this task, and as a result, they lose time and money.
According to a study by the Aberdeen Group, 37% of PSFs fail to deliver their projects on time. This means that for every three projects that a PSF starts, one of them will be late.
There are a number of reasons why PSFs struggle to deliver projects on time. One reason is that they often have to juggle multiple projects at the same time. This can make it difficult to keep track of all the different tasks and deadlines.
Here are some additional statistics that support the need for PSFs to improve their project delivery:
The average cost of project overruns is $2.8 million.
The average time to complete a project is 18% longer than planned.
60% of projects are delivered with defects.
These statistics show that there is a significant opportunity for PSFs to improve their project delivery.
Imagine what you could achieve with an additional 20 hours at your disposal. Increased focus, enhanced planning, and the ability to allocate resources more effectively are just a few of the benefits that come to mind.
This paradigm shift in project management involves rethinking traditional methods, adopting innovative tools, and leveraging technology to your advantage.
