Project Half Double receives DKK 15.8 million in additional funding from Danish Industry Foundation

We are really happy to announce that the Danish Industry Foundation has decided to grant Project Half Double another DKK 15.8 Million. This will enable the Half Double methodology and the community to take a big step into the future and help even more companies to succeed with new projects.

Since the kick off in June 2015 the Danish Industry Foundation has invested DKK 12.5 Million in the concept – not to mention the thousands and thousands of hours dedicated by passionate community members and partners in the consortium. Aarhus University, DTU, 16 pilot project organisations and Implement Consulting Group have all put in a great effort to get to where we are today.

The impact is considerably:

  • The Half Double methodology has a proven success rate of 70% confirmed by researchers from Aarhus University in 13 pilot projects so far
  • It won an award for “most innovative project management idea of the year” in 2018
  • +50 Half Double projects have officially been completed
  • +400 Half Double practitioners are now endorsed
  • More than 2,000 members signed up and engaged in the Half Double community

The next step will focus on getting even more Danish organisations to use the Half Double methodology in their projects – with the upside of increasing the impact in each project. Together with Dansk Projektledelse, it is the ambition to create a standardised education and endorsement process making it possible for even more project people to become Half Double practitioners. A take on Half Double in the portfolio will soon follow and a lot of community events is yet to come.

Aarhus University will be leading the research process as part of Project Half Double with an action research approach focusing on effect evaluation.
