If you would like to participate, hurry up to sign in and reserve your spot.
The main event of the evening was a presentation by Wiktor Siegel on AIM (Accelerating Implementation Methodology).
He is a member of IMA (Implementation Management Associates) , which the organization that developed (AIM). And has a vast experience in supporting companies with achieving business goals.
So what stands behind this methodology?
According to Wiktor this is the difference between a successfully implemented project with change of behavior in the organization and a failing such project.
To start and understand the methodology we need to establish the difference between installation and implementation of a project. And then we look at how AIM can support the organization in the implementation of projects beyond the completion of their installation phase.
The key here is the focus on the human factor and working not only on project management, but on change management too. With AIM a project manager should look into gaining support, in the right way, from Sponsors and managers.
AIM can support project implementation in:
- Accelerating implementation speed
- Optimizing implementation costs
- Achieving project ROI higher and faster
- Achieving project results in long-term perspective
This methodology takes into account company culture, sponsor and management support, and PM actions. It provides an accelerating implementation cycle, which can be used as a road map for the methodology and its implementation with the project.
