What’s the connection between the three gentlemen: Henry Ford, Adam Smith, Frederick Taylor and the way we could have Project Management improve the way we execute our Projects? Specialism!!
The shift in the paradigm of working labour set by Henry Ford by having the workshop builders have an isolated job instead of building a complete Model T Ford by yourself is the beginning of the specialization and scientific management. In the world of Project Management we most often see pre-Henry Ford Project Managers controlling and managing the whole Project by themselves. Luckily they don’t pick up the shuffle themselves and start digging. Our believe is that if you specialize your Project Management and Project Controls team in good highly and specialized team members, the output, result and efficiency of projects will improve significantly.
