#SOOP-8 #pmngt Process without people (who understand and use it) is valueless
While people don’t need process to succeed the opposite is not true – process absolutely demands people to implement it and process is an investment for everyone. For its users there is the study time to learn it and then to apply it – although if ‘good’ process it will save more cost and time than it takes to use.
If our people don’t all know the same process, and apply that process – hopefully because its easier to use than to avoid – then process erodes value rather than add to it.
If some of your people are trained in PM methods but not all role-holders know the contribution required of them then you are not getting the return on investment that you could and should be but you have paid the fee – the worst of all possible worlds? Fact is its hard to find an approach that addresses each management layer’s needs and addresses the hierarchy’s needs. Successful projects need a new approach and that approach is #pm_ngt

#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/
