Transcript of EFFECTIVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Advanced Construction Technology & Management
PART 2: Establishing Project
Management Life Cycles
and Strategies
identification of different PMLCs (characteristics, strategies for using, templates, tools, when, where ect.)
Complexity and Uncertainty in the
Project Management Landscape

Main idea:
quadrant scheme categorize the project
model of different project condition
comparison of different project managing methods
choice of the best fit model
goal->solution relation
Complexity/Uncertainty of Projects
TEAM/ COOPERATION/ BISNES RELATIONS
REMOTE WORK
Specification vs. the Complexity/Uncertainty Domain
Choice of PMLC model should be based on an understanding of the confidence you have that the specifications have been completely and clearly defined and documented and that
scope change requests will not arise from any shortcomings in the specifications documents.

Gauging the integrity of the specification document will always be a subjective assessment.
EFFECTIVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Complexity and Uncertainty in the
Project Management Landscape
Prepared by:

Review:
TPM Traditional Project Management
APM Agile Project Management
xPM, MPx Extreme Project Management
Uncertainty:
changing market
changes in project
unexpected situations
Complexity:
complicated building process
high-speed & high-change work
difficult to find solution
Find simple, complex solution & take into account affecting factors.
NON-VALUE-ADDED WORK
involves the consumption of resources on activities
that do not add business value to the final product or process.
less elastic, rigid process
heavy process
full of documentation

adaptive process
elastic process
knowledge shared through team members
TPM model
precise plan
plan reflects all works, schedule resources
full of documentation
not efficient in complex projects!
ATP model
can handle uncertainty
complexity of results
planning as one-time work
REQUIREMENTS
complexity number of requirements
sustainable/ balanced number of requirements
Excess


Lack
may exclude each each other
no one can absorb
waste of workers time
not precised demand of project
FLEXIBILITY
complexity flexibility
AMP
need for creative and adaptive solution
compromise between process, procedure, documentation, and meetings
need for increased adaptability
easier to adapt changes
TPM
fixed methodology
problems during changes in project
repeatedly re-organization of project plan
ADAPTABILITY
certainty adaptability
ability of the team
encourage creativity
careful choice of team
RISK AND COMPLEXITY
TPM
known goal and solution
templates minimize the risk
Client Involvement vs. the Complexity/
Uncertainty Domain

APM
delivering business value more important than conformance to a plan
increase of risk
risk management
Team Cohesiveness vs. the Complexity
TPM projects
group of specialists
clear schedule guide the team
CO-LOCATED WORK
XPM/MPX/APM
self-organize, self-sufficient team
needed additional communication
COMMUNICATION AND COMPLEXITY
People-to-people communication is essential!
Direct
Indirect
low complexity and uncertainty
written communication
Status reports/ change requests/ issues reporting project plan updates
two-way communication ->verbal
client involvement
focused on flexibility not additional work
TPM

APM
xPM
reactive
and passive
more active
role
proactive
role
Meaningful client involvement
can be a daunting task
for at least the three reasons:
This has often been the most anxiety-filled task that you will ever ask of your clients. Some clients think that they are signing their lives away when they approve a document or a deliverable. You are going to have to dispel that perception.
Ownership by the Client
Establishing ownership by the client is critical. Ensure there is that ownership by organizing the project team around co-managers — one from the developer side and one from the client side.

The Client’s Comfort Zone
xPM projects require that the client take a co-leadership role with the project manager. At the same time, the clients’ comfort zone is growing.
They have become smarter.
It is not unusual to find clients who are now more willing to get technically involved. These types of clients can be supportive, or they can be obstacles to progress.

Business Value vs. the Complexity/Uncertainty Domain
Change vs. the Complexity/Uncertainty Domain
TPM
Use TPM models when specifications are as stable as can be.
The less you know about requirements, functionality,
and features, the more you have to expect change.
The assumption then is that there will be little or no internal forces for change during the development project.
APM
Any change in the position of the project will come as the normal learning process that takes place in any project.
When the client has the opportunity to examine and experiment with a partial solution, they will come to the developers with suggestions for other requirements, functionality, and features that should
be part of the solution.
xPM
xPM projects require change in order to have any chance at finding a successful solution.
Change is the only vehicle that will lead to
a solution.

Business value increases as you move from TPM to APM to xPM.
At the same time, risk also increases.
