The Key To Better Government is Better Project Management – It’s Now a Law
According to the Project Management Institute, “only 64 percent of government strategic initiatives ever meet their goals and business intent — and that government entities waste $101 million for every $1 billion spent on project and programs. The research also shows that adopting best practices (in Project Management) result in improved efficiency and less money being wasted. Most importantly, organizations see more projects delivering expected value to stakeholders on time and within budget.”
Because of the importance of adopting modern project management practices, in December, the Congress passed a law, the President then signed into action, that mandates all government agencies adopt modern project management practices. For the past decade many federal agencies have required their employees and government contractors to have certified Project Management Professionals (PMP®) managing their projects. Now it’s mandatory that all Federal Government Agencies get on board with modern project management practices. The details of the new government bill – Public Law No: 114-264 (12/14/2016) can be found at https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/senate-bill/1550.
