Half Double in projects

Have you ever contributed to a project - day after day - and still felt like it was not really going anywhere?

It feels like the whole thing has ground to halt. Everything is bogged down by meetings, coordination, reporting, and low morale. In other words, a project where little of value is really being done or created any longer.

There is a need for new innovative thinking in terms of the way we implement and manage our projects. A paradigm shift is required - a new and radical project management methodology that can result in projects achieving double the impact in half the time.

Below, you can see cases where Half Double has already created impact.

All about the Half Double methodology in projects

The project management methodology has been conceptualized and defined through continuous research and a collection of best-practice approaches, based on years of experience. It is a project management approach based in actual human behavior, unpredictability, and complexity, rather than assumptions of rationality and predictability.

Half Double in portfolios

An important objective for organizations is to make projects with impact, and gain the most value out of each individual project. In addition, it is equally important to ensure making the right projects, in order for the organization to achieve long term benefits. 

To succeed with this, the project environment and portfolio must be in place. This is done by managing and leading the portfolio in a way that ensures project dedication and a cumulative impact mindset.

Explained
Scaling Half Double

Hear a short introduction about scaling Half Double told by one of the Half Double founders Michael Ehlers.

We address well-known pains

Value creation is unclear

The impact challenge

Everyone is busy and we are burning costs but we are not really sure if we are creating impact

Too many projects at the same time

The flow challenge

We overfill the organisation with new projects without finishing what we already started

Delayed and distant board decisions

The leadership challenge

Limited insight and too many decision layers slow down projects

Faster to strategic impact with fewer projects and closer relationships to decision-makers
