Project Business success for a project contractor has three elements: A happy customer, a profitable project, and protection of the organization's liquidity, which is strained by outlays for the customer.
Profitability makes the project worth doing. Liquidity is the lifeblood of the project business. The happy customer protects the future.
At Project Business Foundation, we have the people with knowledge and experience to achieve these goals. These people are prepared to help organizations increase success in project business.
Project Business can be very satisfying. However, it is also high-risk business for all contributing parties involved. It is a business in which one party in troubles may take others with it and drive them into the abyss of illiquidity and insolvency.
The true risks of the project for the vendor are often invisible during business development and become only apparent, when the project is running and obligations need to be met.
There are techniques and tools developed that can help prevent a project from running into business crisis, or to get out of the troubles, when the issues are already mounting and are escalating to become a seemingly unresolvable disaster.
Benefit engineering is an example of a technique that has proven to resolve many crises. Business quality circles is another one. They have in common that they turn contract parties into project partners and help putting completing over competing for all parties involved.
The people who are able and willing to help are at Project Business Foundation.
As an Affiliate Member of Project Business Foundation, you will find yourself in a community of professionals, happy to discuss the burning issues of the discipline and help others when tough decisions need to be made.
You will also be welcome to volunteer for the association and for project business management.
