I forget to whom I should give the hat tip on this topic, but Here’s a study by Logica that highlights what makes change “Winners” successful (study here, may require registration). As you can see, project management was a differentiator in business transformation, which of course I think is great.
My take is that being good at PM is necessary, but not sufficient, to be good at change. That’s because being better at PM should mean that one is better at delivering initiatives of any type. In other words, PM excellence should make change-heavy initiatives more successful — but that’s because PM helps when delivering all initiatives.
Remembered the source… hat tip to Michael Krigsman at IT Project Failures.
