What Project Management 2.0 IS and what it IS NOT (Part 1)

Wrike

Traditional project management built many successful tools and processes that helped to increase the chances of success in those projects. New companies use lightweight processes based on common sense, as well as easy-to-use management and collaboration tools to support those processes. It’s simply amazing what a huge difference these lightweight processes make to the world. One of the sources to find an answer to this question is Gary Hamel’s article Management 2.0.

The Long Tail of Project Management

Wrike

These projects and thousands of other megaprojects rolled out today also imply astronomic risks and therefore require the use of a complex project management methodology with the right processes in place and management by experienced, certified PMPs. I recommend you have a look at this article by Mike Griffiths to get more details on this survey. The less complex the project is, the more informal the processes and methodologies applied to the project will be.

Sequencing Product Backlog

When modeling a project as a flow process, one objective is to deliver the maximum amount of value in the shortest amount of time. The effectiveness of the sequencing depends upon the interaction of three process variables: flow rate, flow time, and the inventory of work in progress (WIP).

Acting Like an Adult in the Presence of Uncertainty

Herding Cats

Decision-making is the process of choosing among alternatives. For high-consequence decisions with potential outcomes that can have a large impact on valued things, the decision-making process should involve consideration of uncertainties about the outcomes. [1]. The process of making a decision involves three elements: values, alternatives, and facts (Buede, 2009). [1]. Related articles. Risk Management is how Adults Manage Projects - Tim Lister.

So start here to build your academic foundation, that can be put to work to build a foundation of validated experience of making estimates in the presence of uncertainty and protect yourself from fallacious claims that estimates are a waste, not needed, and produce bad resulting in the decision making process for those paying you to produce value.

For example, a 2016 Forbes article highlights that senior management is far more open to change than “frontline professionals” (otherwise known as “the majority of the office”). Any disruption to that process will necessarily affect the latter because the workflow has changed. The workplace today is changing rapidly; according to Google Trends , searches for “open office” in the United States peaked all the way back in 2009 and BYOD (bring your own device) reached its apex in 2014.

What Is Risk?

Herding Cats

ISO 31000:2009, ISO 17666:2016 and ISO 11231:2010 Risk is Uncertainty that Matters. This uncertainty can originate from the naturally (randomly) occurring processes of the project (Aleatory Uncertainty). A deeper understanding of frequent risk identification trends and biases pervasive during the design and development of the project's deliverables is needed, for it would lead to improved execution of existing identification processes and methods.

Misunderstanding Making Decisions in the Presence of Uncertainty

Herding Cats

This quote demonstrates a lack of understanding of making decisions in the presence of uncertainty and the processes and events that create uncertainty. There is naturally occurring variability from uncontrolled processes. Aleatory uncertainty is expressed as a process variability. This uncertainty is introduced by a probabilistic event, rather than a naturally occurring process. 2567-2578, Verona, Italy, 2009. Related articles.

Fallacy of the Day

Herding Cats

These estimates can not the ultimate truth since the underlying processes that create the uncertainties (aleatory and epistemic) are stochastic in nature - stationary or nonstationary. This new state now has actual values that have influenced the stochastic processes to produce the probabilistic and statistical value of the future states. Each of these theories operates in the presence of uncertainty, driven by the underlying statistical and probabilistic processes.
