Related Case Studies: Prudential Bank

 

Challenge: 

In 2001, Prudential Bank had approximately 500 employees and nearly as many incomplete projects. Parent company Prudential Financial offered an effective project management process; however, it was paper intensive and impractical for this small organization. The Bank needed a simplified process to prioritize and manage their projects with limited resources.

 

Solution:

I determined that the appropriate plan of action was to build a small Project Management Office (PMO). This office was established to prioritize projects, determine start dates and assign a project manager. I developed a PMO handbook that documented the process, including roles and responsibilities, and included the forms needed throughout the life of the project. This book was distributed across the organization to define standard procedure.

 

Results:

The Bank was able to reduce the number of projects being implemented at any given time. The number of successful implementations increased. Having well-defined roles reduced the stress-level of all those involved with managing or working on projects.

 

“As a manager, Jackie brings out the best in her employees. Over my professional career I have witnessed few managers that are able to generate the type of loyalty that Jackie fosters. She truly enjoys developing her staff. Not only have I worked for her, I have participated in many of the projects that she has managed. Through her management style and people skills Jackie motivates her team members to meet deadlines.”—John Hiers, Senior Vice President
