Why not do just like them?
Successful problem solving requires finding the right solution to the right problem. We fail more often because we solve the wrong problem than because we get the wrong solution to the right problem.
(Russell L. Ackoff)
Every situation, no matter how complex it initially looks, is exceedingly simple.
(Eliyahu M. Goldratt)
You might be overwhelmed after watching these video's. It was difficult, a big investment and a major burden to achieve these amazing breakthrough results. Lucky for them, they succeeded, but implementation fail regularly.
I don't want to scare you away. But to raise the question whether there is an easier and more reliable way? That is easier to learn, easier to use to matches theses success stories yourself.
For years, I found encouragement in the quotes of Russell Ackoff and Eli Goldratt.
Now I can share with you, they were right!
Yes, there is an easier way!
What exactly do they do differently to create these amazing results?
After studying these success stories and turning them inside out, I revealed the secret the experts themselves overlooked. Not because it is too complex. But it is too simple. The difference is in fulfilling just 4 Basic Needs. The 4 Basic Needs must be fulfilled to complete projects successfully, else they run into problems. The problem in project organizations is that they go unfulfilled all the time.
These success stories proof that fulfilling these 4 Basic Needs and preventing they go unfulfilled again, is enough to instantly boost performance by dozens percent and to stay in control.
The question is, how to do this yourself?
The 4 Basic Needs
Completing projects successfully needs resources, collaboration, clarity and adaptability . Else they will run into problems all the time.
The most critical resource is the time of people. Most problems can be traced back to someone who didn't have enough time. Projects need collaboration to align work, overcome obstacles and solve problems. Projects need clarity for which documented plans are needed, because they are too big and complex to go without. Projects need adaptability to absorb changes and deal with uncertainties to stay on track.
The 4 Basic Needs is a new foundation for Project Management. Project management is for big and complex works that people can't do alone, for which they must create plans to create and maintain clarity, in an environment with high levels of uncertainty that is changing all the time.

What tools are needed for Empower Your Projects?
You can implement Empower Your Projects with the tools you already have and use. You know them already and know pretty well the ins and outs.
You don’t need advanced tools to create breakthrough results.
How to get all project managers on board...
Empower Your Projects forces break through results, with the least amount of operational disturbance as possible. It is OK to involve project managers, but if they don’t want to change the way they manage their projects, it is also fine. They are fine.
Will you give any guarantees it will work for me?
I can’t do that. You remain responsible whether you follow up on my advice or not, for your own actions and enjoy the results you get.
How much time preparation is needed?
You can immediately start implementing Empower Your Projects. It took me 2 – 3 weeks to implement it for a medium sized project organization having about 50 to 60 active projects.
What is the price of Empower Your Projects?
The jam-packed Free Webinar is for free. If it answers your questions, it remains for free. I encountered several organizations that spent hundreds of thousands euro’s to millions, to improve project performance, to fail in the end. That is the price of not joining Empower Your Projects. But that is not what you need to invest. Let me tell you all about it during the webinar.
If I've questions, then can I contact someone?
Yes. When you subscribe to the free webinar you will receive my contact details.
Is my project data safe with Empower Your Projects Program?
Yes. No project data will need to leave your organization, or will be stored on servers outside your own organization.
Will it work when project managers all use different planning tools
Yes. Empower Your Projects is independent of the planning technique or tools used by the project manager. It even works for Agile Projects.
Is Empower Your Projects available in my country?
Empower Your Projects is available online. Local presence is not needed. That will save both of us a lot of money and time.
Do I need to hire you as a consultant to implement Empower Your Projects
No. Empower Your Projects is designed to do it all yourself. I’m here to explain how to do that and to support you when you have questions. With modern technologies, I’m never far away.
Is Empower Your Projects a "light" project management method?
No. Empower Your Project is exactly what you need. Doing less than fulfilling the basic needs will cause you run into problems and might even fail your projects. Doing more than fulfilling these basic needs doen’t contribute to project success or preventing the know structural problems with projects (though you will probably lose focus).
The 4 Basic Needs apply to all projects. There are no other basic needs that apply to all projects and should be included an a general purpose project management framework.
Are there better solutions?
No. Otherwise I would have promoted it here.
This is why: Empower Your Projects is based the best project management success stories, and the best strategies available in the world. I kept what proofed to fulfill the 4 basic needs and what works for preventing the 4 basic needs go unfulfilled. I removed everything that doesn’t contribute to these goals, what is obsolete or obviously wrong. I changed the order of steps when they were not following the hierarchy of the 4 basic needs. I added solutions that were missing and to replace malfunctioning solutions. To match these success stories, without the shortcomings.
Should we forget about PMI/IPMA/Prince2?
No. It is not wrong to learn more about project management.
Once you know everything about the 4 Basic Needs, traditional project management frameworks may give you tools that may help you to fulfill these needs. But don’t exaggerate the value of these frameworks. Most of the time it doesn’t make the difference for project success. After all project management is straight forward and common sense once you understand how project organizations work and what projects need.
What if our organization isn't open for anything new...
The Empower Your Projects is new, but it doesn’t introduce new processes or new management concepts. Fulfilling the 4 Basic Needs feels natural and when you would explain it to others, they will probably tell they are doing it already.
New is that Empower Your Project focuses on only fulfilling the 4 Basic Needs. Why bothering about the rest?
