About the Half Double Institute
The Half Double Institute is an independent entity, created to facilitate information about the Half Double methodology, the latest Half Double initiatives and upcoming Half Double events.
Furthermore, the Institute functions as the interlink between stakeholders who want to know more about the Institute’s offerings, partners who offer Half Double training and project assistance and the Half Double certification. The certification is managed by the Danish Project Management Association who also serve as the professional guarantor of the quality of the certification.
The institute was launched the 3th of March 2020, and is continuously being developed to become a new Project Management Institution.
The launch of the Half Double Institute website follows the Minimal Viable Product approach, which means that the website continuously will be expanded upon and upgraded. Please, feel free to give us your feedback, as it enables us to adjust and improve the website and make sure that the offerings of the Half Double Institute match your needs
The Half Double journey
The Half Double idea was ignited back in 2014 when a highly visionary crowd took the first steps towards the development of the Half Double methodology. The idea emerged from an ambition to solve the much-discussed project problem - only 30% of projects create the intended impact and are characterized as successful.
To uncover the key drivers to successful projects and to identify the essential elements which differentiate successful projects from unsuccessful projects, Implement Consulting Group and 25 other passionate partners worked together to outline what both best practice approaches and research in project management could reveal about the topic. Based on the research and best practice examples, 10 guiding stars were formulated which, for example, included “put people before modules” and “create short and thick projects”.
Forming a consortium
In 2015, a consortium between the Danish Industry Foundation, Implement Consulting Group, Aarhus University and DTU was established and the Project Half Double was now a formalized reality. Four years later, the first and second phase of the Project Half Double have now been successfully completed.
The first two phases of Half Double have focused on the development of the methodology in 16 real business projects and the evaluation of the project Impact. The evaluation of the 16 projects showed that 87% of the projects were successful in relation to the defined success criteria and that 69% of the projects outperformed comparable projects within the companies. The evaluation results strongly indicate that applying the Half Double methodology in projects could be key in solving the “30%” project problem.
A third phase has been initiated
Due to the impressive results, the third phase of Project Half Double has been initiated in collaboration with the Danish Industry Foundation, Danish Project Management Association, Aarhus University and Implement Consulting Group. The third phase focuses on the establishment of an independent Half Double Institute, transforming Half Double into an international certification standard, as well as spreading knowledge about and application of the Half Double methodology even further.
