The teamwork and cross-organization cooperation necessary for enterprise project management are antithetical to the reality experienced in most organizations. For this reason it is a good bet that the changes necessary to implement enterprise project management will be quite incompatible with the organization’s culture. Even if systemic changes are made in the organization, the old ways will still linger for many organizational generations. Culture change is an extremely long and complicated process.

For example, NCR reported that it took five years to get the “snowball effect” to propel project management into the forefront of its corporate thinking (Kennel, 1996, p. 1), and AT&T reports it is still in an infant stage after five years (Schneidmuller and Balaban, 2000). Finally, learn from the past or be doomed to repeat it. Find out what happened to any failed change agents who came before you and determine what you can do differently. Create a Guiding Coalition. Once a sense of urgency is established, develop a group of people across the organization who will help to define the changes needed and ultimately aid the implementation process.

Targets are extremely important and active players in the implementation process. • Advocates: These are the people who would like to see a change project idea happen but are not in a position to sponsor it. They, in effect, have a project and want to identify potential sponsors and persuade them to initiate it. From our experience, the move toward enterprise project management normally begins with a group of advocates, a group of dedicated people in the organization who want to improve project management.
