What is #pm_ngt
#pm_ngt is ‘Project Management: New Generation Thinking’. It is the result of asking and answering “What would increase project management’s success rate?”
A new generation of project management thinkers is all around us. #pm_ngt integrates their thinking triggered by the obvious failures of yesterday’s state-of-te-art when used today.
#pm_ngt helps organizations improve the state of the art in managing project based change; everyone involve in change can benefit from #pm_ngt.
#pm_ngt has three specific differences over traditional project management approaches:
- FIRST) a time-frame that starts with “idea” and runs through “project” to resumption of business as usual in a new stable state, end2end™
- SECOND) a tangible means to communicate intent from the top of the organisation’s hierarchy to the bottom and escalate complications revealed in the details back for decision making. The Decision Making Architecture is an iterative feedback loop. BoardRoom2BoilerRoom™
- THIRD) help for people to navigate change’s non-negotiable arrival and the inevitable and often unwanted impacts. Socialisation
This is a new generation of project management thinking and we refer to it as Project Management: New Generation Thinking (#pm_ngt)
We’ve constructed #pm_ngt by cherry-picking and integrating the ‘common-sense’ elements from Isochron’s Dimension Four®, from PRINCE2®, from the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, from Complex Adaptive Systems as applied to business systems, from Agile, Lean and Six Sigma and everywhere else great and relevant tools help. #pm_ngt adds mind-set, adds resolution of gaps and differences to achieve integration and adds the 9 elements of framework (The three layers of Direct Manage Deliver times the three timefames of Define, Develop, Deploy)
Non_Exam PM Knowledge
Organisations seek what is valuable. Any framework & tool-set matched to a commercial context must discarding exam driven nonsense. In a business (and Government) context these atrefacts add cost with little or no benefit. Focus on real-world issues results in a concrete and holistic set of techniques and a philosophy of guided, flexible implementation that is relevant2reality™
Next week we will post an overview of the proven techniques we assimilate and how the whole fits together to be an advancement in the Project Management State of the art.
