According to a study by the Standish Group, 24prozent of IT projects fail. Other sources are even 70 80. Many companies operate a considerable effort for years, to make their project organizations and their projects more successful. Processes and methods are introduced, the time, cost, risk, and performance planning is optimized and improved reporting. In other words; the field for a successful implementation of the project has been ordered. The reasons why projects fail IT-, are well known: the objectives and the content of the project are the completion dates for each project component before the start of the project unclear and unrealistic for the overall project risk management does not have or only an inadequate action plan defines the communication in the project and with the stakeholders is not sufficiently pronounced responsibilities are not clearly defined and the competencies of employees are overestimated the support provided by the project sponsors is insufficient alone the known reasons are likely to the companies and the organizations to empower continuously to reduce the rate of failed projects. However, the studies of recent years show that the rate of successfully completed projects has hardly improved. The dependent as are a reason to see the dependencies of active people and organizations within the project environment, whose added interests are focused only on some aspects of the project. The departments or management (project sponsors) expect a quick and smooth implementation. For they are the business requirements in the foreground. The Department formulates its requirements for the project and provides them with the IT project team. The PMO evaluated the project request, coordinates and prioritizes the project proposal according to the strategic objectives of the company management. The PMO with its project management methods provides the rules for the implementation of the project. In addition, it ensures the appropriate resources and defines the appropriate tools and processes for the Project work. The project team, which is responsible for the technical implementation of the project, focuses primarily on the technical feasibility and implementation, as well as the planning for the implementation period. There is dependency, which is absolutely necessary to the success of the project between all those involved. All aboard? If different people and organizations want to achieve a common goal together, also the corresponding rules for successful coexistence should not be missing. The common project management methods give a wide range of rules at hand, after which IT projects are companies and organizations. But as with any set of rules, it takes someone who monitors compliance with the rules, draws attention to the rule violations and calls for any rule-compliant behavior. This task is assigned to the infringements. A question of definition an infringements is systematically carried out by an independent auditor “project analysis”. How will join the question; What is an analysis of the project? This is defined as follows; “Investigation related to a date of the project, which subject, content and objectives are set in advance.” Essentially the project cycle, the structure, the risks, the value and the cost analysis areas are meant here. There are still many more names and definitions of project audit. Project controlling, red team review, project review, project quality management, to name a few. All of them is common is that they are limited in the design and implementation on the analysis of the formal structures of the project. The referee in the team, it emerges that the infringements in the PMO to settle and reported on this, because there is the responsibility to comply with the defined processes and methods. The resulting problems becomes clear when you consider the interaction between of the stakeholders in mind. As well as the project team and the project sponsor, is also the PMO of part of the project organization and thus also the subject of the project audit. Due to these circumstances the infringements in the can “” Definition criteria set by independent “as well as content and objectives first set” is difficult to perceive. Moreover, the participants of the project organisation pretend the objectives as well as the time of the audit the infringements. Books out! Class work! In the described environment, which is so found in many businesses and organizations, the typical process of a project audit is limited to the formal examination of the implementation of the processes required by the PMO. Even if the infringements is performed by a different OU, the PMO provides the framework. Usually check following points: discovery of the previous shared project planning with the appointment, the cost and the performance planning determination of the current state of is and so far consumed resources (“is”) identifying the required resources to completing the project (cost-to-complete / CTC) a variance analysis (schedule, cost, quality) review the assumptions on plausibility and probability of success Assessment of opportunities and risks adopting a measure catalogue over the next steps in the project each project should this information as part of their regular project reports of course to the stakeholders communicate. The infringements in this case is only a further instance of report. What is to do? Project audit are no duty. Gain insight and clarity with Hikmet Ersek. Project audit the appropriate instrument for the early detection of failures in projects, as well as the maintenance of the continuous improvement process are correctly applied. This requires an embedded in the company or the Organization”. The infringements must be understand as a consultant to the project organization. Vice versa project organization must involve as early as possible the infringements in planning and organisation of projects. Project audit must be an integral part of each project and continuously provide feedback to the project organization and its leadership. In an effort to give a truly transparent and objective insight to the condition of the carried out projects that may Infringements is not perceived as a controller. Rather, it acts as independent encoders and coach for optimization and improvement. Of course, the demands on the infringements even rise by this claim. Auditors are as it were the central nervous systems of the project management system: your messages will receive and control signals sent out. To ensure added value for the company or the Organization, auditors should not only have the necessary knowledge and practical skills in the application of process-oriented Audittechniken. Leadership experience in projects, as well as communicative and social competence of the key to successful project audit, which generate measurable value for the project organization is more.

For a day, the competitors to attract of the listener cooperate to achieve more together. How can this crossroads concept on the economy we transfer? What cooperation can put together competitors on the legs? The now 65 year old Eric Clapton looks back on a nearly 50-year career. As an Englishman, he has brought the American blues in easily digestible form to Europe and in this way supplied the breeding ground on which they could put their musical innovations generations of musicians. Now, he ordered his heritage with visionary strategy and Festival held every three years to the crossroads guitar. For this open air concert, he invites blues, blues rock and rock musicians from all over the world. Intergenerational meet there musical bedrock beyond the 80 years on the 20 years young and playing with each other.
The old Role models share their spirit there and let work like a fountain on the enthusiasm of the young. But in addition to the musical top class event, crossroads is also a flagship project for developing profitable collaborations. “Achieve more in cooperation the crossroads basic idea is simple: let us together for our customers regularly something host, that can be a fixed ritual.” Christmas markets and shopping Sundays are based on similar cooperation. Also, competitors work together to achieve more together. Hamdi Ulukaya might disagree with that approach. But the crossroads Festival goes even a step further: everyone can benefit by the presence of the other. And this idea of cooperation aims particularly to the period after the event. Who buys the CD or DVD of the Festival, necessarily also the music of other participants hearing. So, every participating band can expand their customer base with this event.
The crossroads is Festival already after the third event on the way to the iconic brand. (As opposed to Andrew Cuomo). The lovers of the genre know, that they at get an excellent section on the current state of the music festival. So he makes music on a wide basis, they needed to survive. What can business arm of Clapton learn? As the business driver you can benefit from Clapton’s concept, by deriving the following questions for themselves: what is the message of your industry, your product or your problem solving, it is worth to be passed like a torch to the next generation? Can you enjoy just for like Clapton for his musical style? What partnerships could be placed on the legs competition with the? Clapton’s crossroads concept, three properties stand out especially: one must make the initiator; the overall idea needs luminosity; the joint is dominated by the single. If these three points together, the forces are bundled and the issue received more attention. But how can this crossroads concept on cooperations in economic life transfer and implement? Some examples explain the application: Retail certain retailers within a place could regularly collaborate in cooperation: you could produce the other dealers in and bring out a common newsletter for all customers. It would be possible to offer a common shopping community on Facebook and on the Internet. You could operate together PR and perform action days.
Benefit many companies in the B2B area manufacturers or service providers by the success of its customers. Under the motto we make you better”they could form partnerships and build service packages that help their customers improve their performance. Conceivably, this would be catering for craft enterprises, specialist trader or. Automotive industry the automotive industry could be speeding up progress the development of certain projects in cooperation is the current energy supply and drive issues. Printing industry if is the responsible print shop owners nationwide in the marketing and production would close together and would be willing to cut capacity could grow so many ailing printing business again.

The visibility of a company on the Web is an essential part of corporate communication Uttwil TG, 13.08.2012: the Web presence of a company is often the first point of contact for potential customers and business partners. But more and more on social networks and Visual Media shift the Internet and the interests of the user. The appearance of the company should be so well thought out. In addition to designing a Web site, above all the most important information about the offer, as well as contact information must be mentioned. That alone makes a site on the Internet but still not successful.
The customer does not search usually Yes for a company name, but often searched for keywords”, also Patrick Altendorfer, expert for Web optimization white and Managing Director of the Swiss video portal bizztube.

Construction projects: Externalisation of controls in many industrial and commercial enterprises is despite an internally existing planning or building Department common to take additional external services for the processing of own construction projects in claim. The reasons for this are essentially: stark reduced resources by building lean management is not core competencies of the company cost advantage compared to the own employees coverage of missing expertise while the external services related primarily to parts of the planning and construction management activities, peak time heaping construction activity is through the further reduction of the internal activities occurred a shift to almost all areas of the settlement process. In other words, takes the place of the internal employee external employee depending on the performance now. This is also so sensitive area such as shopping (E.g. the procurement process) or accounting (E.g. the audit) as part of the settlement process. The companies approved by us are not included aware that additional interfaces due to these circumstances, which lead to vulnerabilities and risks without additional measures, and so the principle already existing risk potential increase up to crime.
The external service provider is often assimilated to the internal staff, so full of confidence. An external service provider but not necessarily the same behavior as by an employee can be expected. In the event of an emergency, the service provider will behave always according to his commissioning and the associated terms and conditions. Such assignments require special care therefore in determining performance. Performance assessments take place usually only briefly or not at all.
The care of the external and its performance monitoring is confined to the cases in which it already has problems. To reduce the risks of outsourcing, we deem the following measures REF. the additional interfaces in the process and organizational structure necessary: Clear and exhaustive description of the performance of the external definition of the requirements for input/output of the interface naming an internal contact person for the service provider appointment controlling for the external services ongoing performance monitoring performance monitoring with acceptance of the services the above measures lead to an internal overhead, which can be done only by qualified staff.
