www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 27 Process The PM@Siemens approach is made up of 12 steps: • Processes and roles • Contract management • Project controlling • Quality management in projects • Project procurement • Project management career path • Training and development • Collaboration in projects • IT applications • Continuous improvement • PM@Siemens implementation • Internal projects At the pinnacle of the business there is a global perspective and global coordination to deliver a standardised framework and common language, with CEO Peter Loscher the key player in the system. Initiatives are then cascaded down to other areas of the business. "This allows us to understand what's required to successfully complete a project," explains Villiers. "The role of PM@Siemens is to provide an overall structure for a project that can be applied from a local perspective." So while the PM@Siemens methodologies are global and provide the framework, customisation at the business level is possible to account for the difficulties a one-size-fits-all approach to project management would present in such a diverse business. Outcome The PM@Siemens approach affords a common, consistent and uniform application of project management systems across the business anywhere in the world. It allows Siemens to build internal project management knowledge and benchmark competencies. "Each of the four sectors has different areas of focus, and the diversity of the business can make standardisation difficult. The project management processes in PM@ Siemens are partly about getting everyone on a level playing field,” explains Villiers. • •• AT THE PINNACLE OF THE BUSINESS THERE IS A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE AND GLOBAL COORDINATION TO DELIVER A STANDARDISED FRAMEWORK AND COMMON LANGUAGE.
