Developing a Project Culture, adapted to changes in target markets

  • Advisory


Project Background & Rationale

The organization wishes to reinforce the level of maturity of its R&D teams in terms of project management, from the formalization of the initial idea to the production launch of the product, including the more structured management of post-production. The company is also seeking to equip its teams to cope with an increasingly complex project approach, which must integrate unprecedented regulatory requirements and constraints linked to (new) markets. The aim of the initiative is therefore to define a ‘project’ methodological framework adapted to the organization’s evolving needs, and to ensure that teams apply it to their respective projects.

Expressed Needs


Determine a suitable ‘Project’ framework, i.e. review and/or refine governance, methodology and project processes in line with current and future needs


Provide concrete support to internal project managers on their respective projects, to ensure that the defined principles are properly applied


Equip the organization with a governance structure enabling it to monitor the product lifecycle (PLC), once deployed on the market

Our Approach

The deployed approach focuses on the definition and implementation of suitable ‘project’ principles :

Framing: Confirmation of ambitions, objectives and initial assumptions
Activation: aligning stakeholders with the initiative’s pace and dynamics
Intakes: Individual interviews to identify current perceptions of needs and priorities
Co-Construction: Work sessions aimed at defining methodological principles, prioritization criteria for incoming projects and development/post-development processes in a participatory manner.
Coaching : Application to real cases, e.g. evaluation of current projects on the basis of the defined principles, identification and promotion of internal best practices.
Follow-up: Dissemination of new operating methods and implementation of any necessary corrective actions.


  • A framework describing the fundamental principles of internal project management, adapted to the realities of target markets and current legislation


  • Project contributors applying these same principles to their respective projects
  • A community of project managers sharing best practices and contributing to the continuous improvement of the project approach within the organization
