Survival Hints for Project Business

Project business happens, when two (or more) parties do a project together as a paying customer and a paid contractor. It is the core of today’s project economy. The current crisis met players in project business unprepared. Among all business disciplines, project business has the lowest number of experts, literature, software, and offerings for education. However, professionals and organizations need immediate help to survive the crisis. Oliver F. Lehmann, the world’s leading expert in project business management, presents a number of survival hints that can be implemented immediately and protect people and companies from avoidable failures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Attendees understand the concept of project business (management) and its relevance for individuals, organizations, and the project economy.
  • Attendees understand the specific challenges of project business in contrast to internal project management.
  • Attendees have a compass to guide them through the Corona crisis.



Oliver Lehmann, MSc, ACE, PMP has many stories to tell, based on experience as a project management practitioner, analyst, writer, and trainer, which he collected over more than three decades.

Based in Munich, Germany, Oliver helps organizations and individuals identify and address weak spots, bring methods and structure into their projects, unify language and approaches, and achieve professional certification. Another focus is the improvement of the customer-contractor interface in project business. During his 30-year careers he has worked with customers such as Airbus, DB Schenker, Honda, Microsoft, Olympus, Oracle, SAP, T-Systems, and many more.

He has been a member and volunteer at PMI, the Project Management Institute, since 1998, and served five years as the President of the PMI Southern Germany Chapter until April 2018. Between 2004 and 2006, he contributed to PMI’s PM Network magazine, for which he provided a monthly editorial on page 1 called “Launch”, analyzing troubled projects around the world.
