#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

~~O~~

 

#pm_ngt Is an integration of best-of-breed solutions such as PMBoK Guide® and PRINCE2® and Dimension Four®

 

#pm_ngt Builds on your existing investment in pm training, it integrates, fills the gaps & links to your mission & values

 

#pm_ngt Helps the board develop and maintain a vision, translate vision to strategy, to tactics, to outputs, to outcomes, to benefits

 

#pm_ngt Isn’t (just) project management its an investment regime for the management of change based benefits delivery

 

#pm_ngt Is a collection of tools and procedures within a defined but loosely enforced framework that together handle the initiation, conduct and bedding-down of change; From Idea to Returns, the end to end investment cycle

 

Successful change requires support of activity from top 2 bottom of the management hierarchy  and from end 2 end of an investment’s timeline. #pm_ngt provides conceptual foundations, vocabulary, roles, tools, technques and framework that span needs from Board-Room 2 Boiler-Room™

 

#pm_ngt is a product set of business leadership and project management tools that provide governance over equity. #pmngt’s acid test is “is this relevant 2 reality?” it is not an exercise in exam based ‘cram and forget’ cv building. #pmngt training coaches each layer of management in how to interact with the layers below and above to facilitate sound decision making

#SOOP are Simon’s Observations on Projects –  http://www.logicalmodel.net/soop-simons-observations-on-projects/ –  Each one is flows from the observation that gaining skills in delivering projects is like making soup http://www.logicalmodel.net/pmngt/soop-prince2-and-pmbok-as-a-bowl-of-soup/
