#SOOP-4 #pmngt The idea that “project management” is the discipline that matters is wrong to start with!
The topic of actual interest to the people who supply the money that pays for projects is BENEFITS.
The topic is investment management and it has three timeframes: Appraisal of ideas, Delivery of Capability and Harvesting of Benefits that are only going to be successfully delivered if those who direct, who manage and who build and operate know how to interact over these three time frames and three layers. Successful projects need a new approach and that approach is #pm_ngt
#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/soopsimons-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/soopprince2-and-pmbok-as-a-bowl-of-soup/
