Project Size Determination

Project Empowerment

Getting Started

Coaching an executive. Restructuring a sales process. Rolling out a new product. No matter the scope of a project, each one begins with an idea for improvement to reach personal or business optimization. Whether we’re coaching an individual on leadership skills or working with a critical team in a large organization, we rely on the Quantum Project Paradigm. We define a project as any course of action containing multiple steps to reach a desired outcome or achievement. All of our projects are divided into three core stages:

  1. Visualization Stage: All goals start with an idea. In this phase a project’s main outcomes and achievements are clearly defined and stress tested to ensure they are both feasible and the right objectives to achieve your goal.
  2. Actualization Stage: Bringing a project to life requires a clear course of action to be mapped, resources identified, and tasks defined and delegated.
  3. Realization Stage: Ready, set, go! The project plans are put into action; tasks are launched and managed; resources are utilized; and the plan is monitored and optimized to keep your goals on track.

Scale, complexity, time, and resources determine the size of a Quantum Excellence project. Larger, more complicated projects require greater resources and skill sets than smaller projects. Often, time and resource constraints can endanger a project’s feasibility and success. In order to ensure the success of a project while optimizing time and resources, a clear understanding of the Quantum Project Paradigm and the best ways to apply the three stages is essential. We excel at helping you get unstuck in your project objectives and streamlining the process.

Stage One – Visualize

The Ideation Phase

“All things are created twice–first mentally, then physically.  The key to creativity is to begin with the end in mind, with a vision and a blue print of the desired result.”
– Stephen Covey

The two utmost contributing factors towards achieving a goal is first making sure you have the right outcome in mind and, second, clearly defining it to maximize its workability and success. At this critical ideation phase you define the list of goals and objectives that you want to achieve in the project. Quantum Excellence works closely with you to ensure the goals represent where you want to go and are compelling enough that you want to be there. We ensure these objectives are met and as many options as possible are articulated. Acting as a creative muse, strategic partner, and catalyst when things get stuck, we provide direction and alternative options for approaching challenges.

Stage Two – Actualize

The Planning Phase

“Decide the outcome and the action step, put reminders of those somewhere your brain trusts you’ll see them at the right time, and listen to your brain breathe easier.”
– David Allen

Proper planning is essential for building an actionable and successful roadmap. When we put this second phase into action, the objective defined in the Visualization Stage evolves into a comprehensive set of tasks, resources, and schedules. At a corporate level, you identify the project’s key players, define their roles and responsibilities, and bring them on board. In the course of personal coaching, we assess the ideal path for your skill development and set up a supportive network to assist you on your journey. Whatever the scope of the project, we roll up our sleeves alongside of you to face the barriers that may seem overwhelming and find solutions to overcome them.

Key Benefits:

  • Create a skills inventory and identify skills that need to be developed to support the achievement of goals
  • Ensure the right resources are in place
  • Define, assess and select the optimal people and teams
  • Identify the requisite support systems for the project

  • Establish a network of supporters and mentors

Stage Three – Realize

The Execution Phase

“Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.”
– Peter Drucker

Everybody loves great results, especially when project objectives are realized. Turn your planning efforts into a long-lasting ROI, as we launch the project with your well-defined goal in mind. During this phase, teams need motivation and encouragement to stay on track as they face challenging obstacles. Projects and plans may need adjustments as environmental factors impact progress. Numbers need to be analyzed as data streams start to reach a critical mass so that project plans can be adjusted to keep you on track to achieving your main objectives and peak performance.
