360° project management means to attentively observe the project landscape as a whole, while focusing on the current bottleneck in specific. That is the difference between 360PM and other procedures, that generally tend to apply the entire set of methods and tools for every project.
As so often, Peter F. Drucker accurately states: “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.“
This certainly requires experience, but it is not necessary to solely rely on your own expertise. Knowledge of the methods and tools of project management is a prerequisite. A certification according to PMI, IPMA or PRINCE2 is suitable, this is the core. However to exceed this level, one needs to know how to identify the actions that are critical for success at every stage of the project.
What has to be done? Now!
360° project management collects and sorts the best methods and tools to identify and implement the measures that are decisive for success at any time, from the start until the successful closing of a project.
