Digital PMO for EPC Projects

Flying an aircraft and managing a project are two very different tasks, but they do share some similarities in terms of the required skills and the mindset needed to be successful. Here are some comparisons between flying an aircraft and managing a project:
  1. lanning and preparation: Both flying an aircraft and managing a project require a lot of planning and preparation before the actual work can begin. Pilots and project managers must take into account factors such as weather, equipment, resources, and team members to ensure a safe and successful flight or project.
  2. Risk management: Pilots and project managers must also be adept at managing risks. In aviation, this means constantly monitoring the weather, aircraft systems, and other factors to ensure safety. In project management, it means identifying potential risks and creating contingency plans to mitigate them.
  3. Communication: Clear communication is crucial in both flying and project management. Pilots must communicate effectively with air traffic control, other pilots, and their crew members. Project managers must communicate effectively with their team members, stakeholders, and clients to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
  4. Decision-making: Pilots and project managers must make quick and informed decisions under pressure. In aviation, this means assessing situations and making split-second decisions that could mean the difference between life and death. In project management, it means assessing risks, making decisions based on data, and adapting to changing circumstances.
  5. Attention to detail: Both flying an aircraft and managing a project require attention to detail. Pilots must pay close attention to their instruments, aircraft systems, and the environment around them. Project managers must pay close attention to timelines, budgets, and deliverables to ensure that everything stays on track.

What will happen if the information radiator is faulty? What happens if the decision makers do not have the right information on time for decision making? That is where lies the significance of Digital PMO in project management, especially in EPC projects.

Before getting into further discussions about Digital PMO, let us take a quick look at traditional Project Management Office (PMO) and the limitations of traditional PMOs.

  • CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management) from PMI
  • PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) from AXELOS

  • Six Sigma from American Society for Quality (ASQ)

These certifications have a strong reputation in the industry and are likely to remain in high demand in the future. To learn more about the highly recommended project management certifications for Year 2023 Click here

The success criteria of projects no more revolve around Time, Cost & Scope. A fourth dimention is added to it, that is ‘Value’ delivery. That makes project manager’s role more strategic than tactical. Successful project managers are true leaders driving the team to maximise value within time, cost and scope. That opens up great opportunties for growth for ambitious professionals.
