Statement

"I'm overloaded with too much going on." Who Says. Any staff member.

Interpretation. The staff member has too many projects.

Solution. Indicates a need to reduce the number of projects happening at one time.

Benefit. When the number of projects is reduced, project quality and performance increase as attention focuses on doing the right things. In addition, extra capacity is created for attending to emergencies or engaging in creative thought. Staff are afforded more control over allocation of their time.

How Implemented

• Make reduction to a critical few projects a subtext to all discussions within the PPM process.

• Confirm that the PPM governing body truly cares about the welfare of its project managers and believes that reducing the number of projects increases productivity.
