#SOOP-11 #pm_ngt A Project is a set of necessary, sufficient & interdependent tasks that change the world in a way we value
But hang on! the PRINCE2 manual and the PMBoK Guide both insist that a project start with a clear view and finish when outputs are transitioned, way before value is created. Hmm so P2 & PMBoK are a SUBSET of good project guidance!
In fact between them they manage to cover about 60% of what we need between tem. Generally they are fairly complimentary – like a left-hand glove with 6 fingers on a right hand with four fingers. In places they categorically contradict each other, they both mix brilliant insight with stupidity and blindness and unworldlyness
Here is how they fit together – enlarged (Animated version of the graphics below)
Successful projects need a new approach and that approach is #pm_ngt
Successful projects need a new approach and that approach is in our #pm_ngt transformational framework.
ngt is ‘new generation thinking’.
How-to guidance for each layer of the organisation on how to interact with the layers below and above to facilitate decision making for change.
SOOP-1 A project is a decision making architecture…
ngt Is a powerful and intuitive ‘common-sense’ framework of techniques and tools to build on existing investments in p3m3. It integrates, fills the gaps and resolves the overlaps.
ngt Provides techniques to explore, crystallise and cascade vision.
Vision is real-time reaction to Market-place pressures plus Mission plus Values
ngt Includes board level techniques to describe, debate, select and cascade Vision. To correlate vision with strategy and resource availability and map to outputs, outcomes and benefit flows in CFO terms
ngt Helps middle management translate strategy to tactics plus resource allocations and milestones linked to sponsorship, problem resolutions or swift Issue Escalations to empowered decision makers (or it shows you early on “It would be wiser if we didn’t start”)
ngt Is an holistic regime for leading transformation
investments from both the hierarchy and time perspectives:
Board-room to boiler-room™ – (Govern-manage-deliver)
Light-bulb moment to steady-state benefits
ngt Provides conceptual foundations, vocabulary, roles, procedural framework and techniques that fill gaps and resolve overlaps from integrating best-of-breed solutions such as agile, PMBoK Guide®, PRINCE2® and Benefits realisation, sociology and psychology. A product set of business leadership and project management tools for governance over equity.
ngt’s acid test is, ‘is this relevant 2 reality?’ it is not an exercise in exam based ‘cram and forget’ CV building.
