NEC Technologies India (NTI) launched a research initiative in mid-2014
to shed light on the capabilities that global IT companies in India were
building to help them scale the project management maturity curve. The
research was commissioned by an NTI client in the IT industry with a
strong regional presence that was looking to expand their business
operations and product portfolio globally.
Undertaken by the knowledge and advisory wing of NTI's market research
and consultancy department, the research helped NTI's client benchmark
their project management practices with those of global industry
leaders, including their competitors.
The mandate for the NTI team was to create recommendations of global
leading practices that mature IT companies in India had established.
Leading practices were in below areas:
The research focused on understanding the project methodologies that
these companies followed and how well they tied in with the Knowledge
Areas of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).
The research focused on four of the ten Knowledge Areas – Project
Communications Management, Project Integration Management, Project Human
Resource Management, and Project Quality Management.
The findings from each organization were benchmarked against one another
on NTI's in-house project management progression measurement tool
(PMO-PMTTM) and the PMO Performance MetricsTM tool that determined the
difference in the level of maturity on the benchmarked parameters for
all the organizations.
NTI's PMO-PMTTM tool revealed five new trending practices under heads
such as project management process, resource capabilities, project
management tools, authority of the project management office, and
organizational culture. These practices were helping companies deliver
successful projects in today's business environment. The tool also
ranked these companies on these practices to understand how mature their
project practices were.
The white paper covers five case studies that demonstrate how mature
project practices helped these companies overcome some common business
challenges and achieve improvements in business outcomes.
