The paper "The Manner in Which London Olympics, 2012 Was Successful " is a good example of a management case study. The last three decades has highlighted the manner in which project management has helped projects to be implemented successfully. Avots (2009) has clearly indicated that the use of project management techniques and strategies is more efficient as compared to the traditional methods of functional division which was used in hierarchical organizations. The use of project management techniques helps both the ongoing projects and new projects by providing the required stream through which the day to day operations are better managed and provide the required streamline through which maximum effectiveness is gained.
In situations where organizations have a finite, unique and unfamiliar undertaking the use of project management techniques helps to bring the required transformation and ensures successful implementation of the project (Beck, 2003). The report looks to examine the manner in which the London Olympics, 2012 was successful by analyzing the different factors which led to the success of the project. It examines the different techniques, strategies and methodology which were adopted to deal with the different risk that the project faces.
This is matched by the critical analysis of the project so that better implementation of the project becomes possible. This will be lastly followed by the learning and the different factors which have to be analyzed while looking to implement a project. Project Stakeholder Analysis London 2012 proved to be one of the successful projects which were implemented properly and looked after the different stakeholder and risk that the project faced. The project faced several issues and risk and was seen by the fact that within 24 hours since the International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted to award the 2012 games to London, an attack on the London transport system by four suicide bombers highlighted the threats that the project faced.
The hazards and uncertainties associated with the project are very high and increase the complexities for carrying out projects. The project looked at different stakeholders and based on their needs and requirements divided the entire projects into smaller blocks and segments so that all the different stakeholders were considered. Looking at the different stakeholder and designing the project in such a manner that each and every aspect of the stakeholder was analyzed helped in the successful implementation of the project and provided the required framework through which the different areas were looked at and the project was successfully implemented. Managing the Project The success of the project is largely determined by the final outcome that the project has been able to achieve.
London Olympics 2012 was successful and achieved the desired objectives as the project management strategies and techniques which were used ensured maximum efficiency and ensured the best possible use of resources.
Using the present organizational structure and resources along with the different tools and techniques helped the project to be successfully implemented. The success of the project was largely attributed to the fact that the work was properly defined, the extent of the work was properly allocated, the resources were properly allocated, planning and executing the work, monitoring the progress of the work and ensuring that steps were taken to deal with the deviations if that arose (Turner, 2003). The project further looked at ensuring that the project was delivered on time by developing the time model which looked to match the manner in which the project was carried out and highlighted the overall effectiveness in the project management strategies.
