MNG, Inc. (MNGI), is going through organizational disorder, since two of the four owners split and started there own firm. MNGI has gone from 225 to 150 employees. The company is a multidiscipline company, including land use planning, civil engineering and landscape architecture. Since all three disciplines rely on each department’s service, project management fits nicely into the business strategy. Reaching project management excellence is the priority for management.
This paper addresses the benefits of MNGI adopting project management methodologies, designing and developing the methodologies, challenges that will be faced in implementing the methodologies, and the implementation plan.
The design and development of project management for MNGI has been heavily influenced by two main resources: “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide 2000),” by the Project Management Institute and “Project Management Methodology; A Practical Guide fro the Next Millennium,” by Kliem, Ludin, and Robertson.
