Get further insight into the core of Project Half Double
Project Half Double is fundamentally set out to develop a new project management methodology based in actual human behaviour, unpredictability and complexity rather than assumptions of rationality and predictability.
"What we are ultimately looking for is how to create more impact in less time." - Michael Ehlers, project leader, on the overall purpose of Project Half Double. Take a look at the film below the get further insight into how we approached the challenge in the 16 pilot projects by placing an extreme focus on Impact, Flow and Leadership.
The impact of the Half Double methodology – stories from the pilot projects
"Looking back at how Half Double has progressed so far, it has been great to take a second look a what one might call our traditional ways of thinking. It has generated a lot of interesting learning on how we should start up new projects, how we have to establish awareness about impact as early as possible and have those really solid impact-making deliverables mapped from the very beginning, so that we are able to say that this or that deliverable is crucial to focus on or prioritise at a certain point in the project." - Senior project manager Morten Overgaard, on the impact of Half Double in Siemens Wind Power.

It requires strong leadership to do things differently - stories from the pilot projects
What does it really require to change the way we think and work in projects? One thing is certain, it requires strong leadership and a high degree of engagement - both from the project manager and from the project owner. This is just one out of many key learnings from our work in the 16 pilot projects. Get further insight into Project Half Double by looking at the film below.
Impact is ultimately about stakeholder satisfaction.
It doesn’t matter if we produce what is agreed upon if there isn’t anyone who care to buy or use the solution when it comes to it” – Half Double practitioner Henrik Sonnenberg on the importance of end-user involvement. But how do you really follow-up on your key stakeholders’ attitude towards your project on an ongoing basis? Find out how by watching the film.
Creating flow in projects is all about establishing a high level of intensity
We all know that it works – but still, we rarely see it implemented in practice. So what is really the impact of heavy allocation and colocation in projects? Get the answer from Half Double practitioners Christian, Christoffer and Nicolai who have worked with implementing the Half Double methodology in Novo Nordisk, Grundfos and Lantmännen Unibake.
Leadership is about people and commitment – project owner role is critical
”We have to challenge the project owner and make it perfectly clear that it is critical that he or she is continuously involved in the process. If he or she is not able to stay actively involved, the project only has a slim chance of being successful” – Half Double practitioner Karoline Thorp Adland on one of the most critical insights from experimenting with- and developing the Half Double methodology in the 16 pilot projects.
