keep-calm-and-replan-the-planPlan to Replan: A Project is What Happens to You When You’re Busy Making Other Plans

Project planning is the process of organizing tasks and activities to achieve a certain goal or outcome. In addition to creating the plan, project planning is also involved in the maintenance of that plan.

Planning is typically done at the beginning of each project and its goal is to create the best plan possible using all the information available at the time. It is essential during this period to get inputs from subject matter experts, team members and from others who have been involved in similar projects.

During this phase, the team must first decide and agree on the intent of the project, what needs to be achieved, the deliverables and the scope of the project. Read the Complete Article

“So, you’re a Project Manager. What exactly do you do?”

By James Nichols, JD, PMP

(This is the first entry in a series of articles exploring the real life adventures of a project manager in a growth-stage company)

Project Management culture is something experienced PMs often take for granted. Work in a large PM Centric organization for any amount of time and you’ll be spoiled forever. Organizational structure is well defined, terminology and tools are universal, and processes, oh! the PROCESSES! The world outside these companies is wild and fraught with danger for unwary PMs.

Intro

This is more about the “Us” than just me, though since I’m writing it, everything will be told from my perspective. The “Us” is the two humble PMs who sit back-to-back in our little office surrounded by whiteboards, Gantt charts and architectural plans. Read the Complete Article

Every project, whether explicitly stated or not, is either an investment or a gamble. Sometimes it can be hard to tell which one a project is. In both cases you put something at stake – time, effort and resources. And in both cases you expect to get a benefit from the endeavor. The crucial difference between these two are the odds of success. When investing, the odds of getting a return on your investment should be reasonably good. When gambling however, the likelihood of getting a return – winning – is considerably lower. Viewing projects as either an investment or a gamble can be a useful way of looking at projects.

Consider this Project Risk-Return Matrix:

Need a simple project management software to manage your team?
Check-out our valuable and unique Top 15 Web Applications 2015.

epm and ppmOrganizations are now shifting their focus from project deliverables to project business benefits. Being on schedule, within budget, on scope and at quality is desired but not the ultimate goal. It is because successfully managing these constraints do not necessarily mean a successful project. Today, project stakeholders are more interested in things such as financial impact, time to market, parameters for success, and service integrity.

Companies and organizations initiate a project due to underlying business reasons. The reason why they build a product, start a service, or change a process is related to business growth, cost reduction, continuous operations, or productivity improvement. Project stakeholders approve and execute projects in order to gain expected business benefits after the delivery or implementation of projects. Developing a new process, for example, is initiated with the goal of streamlining operations and reducing cost. Read the Complete Article
