Barriers to Implementation Update (Best Practice)

RT-166 Topic Summary
RT 166

Overview

Although the pressures of individual project performance can often obscure organizational performance improvement, best practices implemented across a portfolio of projects can provide the greatest overall benefit and eventually help organizations achieve more consistent success.

In spite of ongoing efforts to improve implementation of CII products, many CII member companies are still struggling to apply CII products on real world projects. To resolve this problem and increase the level of implementation of CII products, several resources were created by this research team to enhance implementation, including:

  • CII Implementation Model
  • CII Knowledge Structure
  • CII Knowledge Implementation Index
  • CII Self-Assessment Guide
  • CII Best Practices Summary

This research also identified barriers that inhibit innovation and change and contribute to slow industry progress. These barriers to implementation include:

  • Low familiarity with best practices
  • Lack of commitment to best practices
  • Limited emphasis on training and education of best practices
  • Failure to integrate new ideas and recommendations into organization’s procedures
  • Limited benchmarking of costs and benefits
  • Lack of innovation within the industry due to risk aversion 

In summary, RT-166 focuses on assessing CII member organizations' implementation effort at the organizational level using the implementation resources provided by this research. Organizations with better implementation practices performed better on capital projects.
