Please answer these questions with YES or NO:

Do you have a lot of projects in your company, but many of them never get finished and don’t generate any positive impact?

Your project managers are hustling day in day out and still your customers complain because you don’t deliver on your promises and are always late?

Are you stressed out because you don’t have an overview over time and budget of all the projects in your company?

Do your project managers collect tons of data to manage their projects but don’t seem to have any control?

Do you have the impression that each project manager has his system or approach on his own and the left hand is not aware of what the right hand is doing?

I If you have said YES to one or more of these questions, then your business is in trouble.

But I think you knew that already, don’t you?

Chris Sachs - Founder of CACTUS COMPETENCE and expert in minimalist project management

I can totally relate.

I too am a graduate from Project Management Burnout University.

I too spent YEARS being stressed out, working until my eyeballs bleed because me too I thought I needed to run after every possible project, to collect enormous amounts of data, to control everything in my projects, to always comply with the client’s wishes and dreams …

Me too I spent my (14 hour) days, constantly REACTING to the ever-changing world around me.

I was tired … in every imaginable way. I even came to the point to think that I am not made for project management and that I don’t like to do it any more.

I needed to change.

Even though my background was in the traditional ‘old school’ bricks and mortar world, I found myself captivated by the idea of “LESS IS MORE”.

What if instead of applying given industry standards and using complicated and expensive project management software … doing less and strip all down to the strictly necessary would be THE SOLUTION? Not only to me, but also to the entire project management world!

I started to devote more and more time to my blog, my podcast, videos and social media … And became an EXPERT IN MINIMALIST PROJECT MANAGEMENT!

Let’s get started to minimalize your project managment!

Here are some answers to the questions we get most frequently…

We PROMISE to provide you with absolutely everything you need — the best expert know-how, support, encouragement and accountability and a roadmap that will allow you to minimalize your project management and to shape it exactly to your needs.

Minimalism in project management works for all industries or branches of trade. The problems of too much project management and controlling effort applies everywhere independent from the goods you produce or service you provide and the size of your company.

We have worked with medium sized international companies as well as large-scale enterprises.

We will tailor your project management system exactly to the needs of your company. It’s like if you buy a tailor-made suit. It fits perfectly if you weight 50 or 150 kilograms.
First, Chris and you will get to know each other. The objective is to find out together if and how working together makes sense and will take your project management to the next level. And for sure, you can ask any question that comes to your mind concerning minimalistic project management.
You’ll get out of this exactly what you put into it!

Rome was not built in a day. Same for setting up or transforming your project management system. And we can't do anything without you telling us your needs.

With that being said, we usually schedule 1 first week on-site to analyse all aspects of your current situation, talk with all people involved (you included) to determine the needs of your company.

We will then do our homework and set up a project management system that exactly fits your needs and which we will then discuss with you before we present the final version to you and your team. Directly after this presentation it's up to you. You decide whether you want to implement it with your own staff or you want to hire us to implement it for you.
First of all, you should not forget that it is your tailor-made project management system, so for the definition phase top management and project management participation are vital and absolutely required.

You will need one person e.g. an office manager to write the procedures to follow, when it comes to implementation.

I highly recommend defining a person aka, one of your team-members to keep an eye on maintaining the processes alive after the implementation phase. That means, help the colleagues with questions on what tool to use and how to use it. This will ensure the longevity and continuous improvement of the system, once installed. In our system we call this function PMO light (PMO stands for Project Management Office).

The most important component remains that you are in and committed to success. When it comes to priorities for example to get people available to be interviewed it’s up to you to show that it’s important and bolster up the interviewer.
Not necessarily. The analysis phase will show what tools are used in your company now and if they work or not. If a tool works, there is no reason to change it, except if you want to. Minimalism is not linked to tools, so you can basically use whatever you want. Depending on the needs of your projects and your personal preference, I will propose tools and methods wherever needed. For all tools there will always also be a free version available.
