Three Houses Triad™
W hat happens when the project manager, lead business
partner, and a skilled project facilitator join forces to run a project?
Often --- better performance. We know that a decision triad can reduce project
risk, improve integration, and make a difference in outcomes.
In their own words...
Our project team delivered our aviation project on
time, within budget, and met 100% of the goals outlined during project
inception. One of our team members, Ms. Rocque, was a facilitator who
helped us to manage the project. I am convinced
that the effective techniques we used such as alternative evaluation,
vendor demo agendas, and risk analysis contributed to our project's
The benefits to our operations included more timely and
flexible management reporting, lower pilot training costs, and more
efficient scheduling of pilot, maintenance, and support staff activities.
The ease of use of the interface enabled the executive roll out to
go smoothly and generally made the department look more professional.
There was an important additional benefit. We were able to
improve the working relationships within the flight department.
The process had the effect of focusing the cross function work groups
into a team that had a clear vision and ownership of the goals and
end product. This was a value added bonus that our team did not
quantify but was recognized by management.
The software vendor we selected during the project
has seen his customer base increase significantly. Improvements
to his product, made in response to the requirement definition process,
have enabled the vendor to become one of the premier software vendors
within corporate aviation.
The Triad approach greatly contributed to the success of my project.
Our facilitator, a part-time team member, introduced us to proven
tools and techniques that saved us time and eliminated
rework in developing project deliverables. At project meetings,
the facilitator provided an objective view during discussions and
kept us focused on the agenda and critical issues at hand. Just
as importantly, the facilitator's help with the conflict resolution
which often seems to surface during a project, proved crucial to
our project success. The advice, guidance and mentoring provided
by our facilitator proved invaluable.
As sponsor of a critical aviation project, I found that the triad
approach kept our team focused and asking the hard questions. This
brought about results that surpassed my expectations. The research,
development of a specification, evaluation formats, selection of
the vendor and, most importantly, the implementation of the project
were done smoothly with few major issues or problems. Our team had
the proper guidance and facilitation that resulted in adding significant
value to our business.
