Success Stories

High Tech Product Development

The unreliable performance of a team that produced silicon chips was impacting this Fortune 100 company’s ability to bring its flagship products to market. After failing to improve performance with a new process flow document, we helped the team implement commitment-based project management. A participative meeting was used to develop a commitment-based plan (and deliverables matrix for tracking progress). Two levels of regular work review meetings were set up to make sure that progress and risk were monitored appropriately and that any potential slips would be identified in time to respond. Each project subteam used performance systems to make sure they met their own commitments. Below are the results of essentially the same team developing essentially the same product before and after the commitment-based intervention. The product had record setting time to money (break-even time) performance and the team was recognized for their excellent performance.

This success story is featured in great detail in No Surprises Project Management: A Proven Early Warning System for Staying on Track.
