The Fast, Flexible and Fact based Front End: Examining Discovery the Not So Fuzzy Front End of Innovation

by Kimberly Johnson, Christopher Miller, Brian Cohn, Jennifer Arnold
July 31, 2018 | 61:19 | Views: 2,754 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.41 / 5

Donald G. Reinertsen was at Booz Allen Hamilton when he coined the term “Fuzzy Front End” in an article for PMI in the 1980’s. He did so because he thought there was something going on up there at the beginning of New Product Development but it was fuzzy. I interviewed him for an article a few years later. By then he had come to dislike the term, “Fuzzy Front End”. He felt that, after more study, there were a number of tools and processes in place (some for decades), that made the front end into a repeatable process. Together we changed the original premise to “Fuzzy Logic” for the article. That concept of Fuzzy Logic (sampling the environment, the market, technology, the competition, etc.) became the basic concept behind this important discovery stage and the basis for many popular branded processes like Hunting for Hunting Grounds™. Never mind Reinertsen’s new thinking, the term “Fuzzy Front End” was catching on by the mid-90’s in the New Product Development community and perpetuated the myth of this stage as somewhat mystical. This webinar will attempt to demystify the new product discovery.

Key Performance Indicator Template (Japanese Translation)

PREMIUM deliverable
by Harold Hunt

多数の主要業績評価指標(KPI)は一般的にITプロジェクトに一般的に影響しますが、そのすべてを追跡するメリットはコストを上回る可能性があります。 したがって、各プロジェクトは、その特定の状況に最も関連するKPIを慎重に選択して管理する必要があります。 このサンプルテンプレートを使用してKPIを定義できます。 以前に定義されたプロジェクト重大成功要因(PCSF)のそれぞれについての可能なKPIの例と、各KPIのメトリック(メジャーとディメンション)を含む表も含まれています。 「ITプロジェクトの健全性を判断する」記事と併用してください。

Key Performance Indicator Template

PREMIUM deliverable
by Harold Hunt

While numerous key performance indicators (KPIs) typically influence IT projects generally, the benefit of tracking all of them may be outweighed by the cost to do so. Therefore, each project must carefully select and manage those KPIs most relevant to its specific situation. This sample template can be used to define KPIs; also included is a table with examples of possible KPIs for each of the previously defined project-critical success factors (PCSFs) and a metric (measure and dimension) for each KPI. Use in conjunction with the article Determining IT Project Health.

Technology Impact on Communication Management (Korean Translation)

by Beth Spriggs

소셜 미디어는 더 많은 커뮤니케이션 방법을 도입했을뿐만 아니라 커뮤니케이션 기본 설정 (텍스트, 채팅 또는 화상 통화)에 영향을 미치고 의사 소통 스타일이 바뀌 었습니다 (이모티콘 사용자는 누구입니까?). 사용 된 질문에 대한 빠른 답변을 얻기 위해 전화를 들었을 때 평범한 것이되기 위해, 많은 사람들이 이제 이메일을 선호하여 전화를 피합니다. 연구에 따르면 많은 전문가들이 더 이상 업무 관련 전화를 걸기 위해 전화를받는 것이 더 이상 안락합니다. 우리는 커뮤니케이션 행동과 선호가 어떻게 변했는지 탐구하고 이러한 변화가 우리 프로젝트에서 기회와 위험을 어떻게 만들어 내는지 조사 할 것입니다. 여기에서 우리는 현재의 프로젝트 의사 소통 계획에 영향을 미치는 방법에 대해 토론하고 커뮤니케이션을보다 효과적으로 조정할 수있는 방법을 모색합니다. 마지막으로 실용적인 커뮤니케이션 팁을 공유 할 것입니다.

The Dynamic Progress Method: A New Alternative to the Critical Path Method (Japanese Translation)

by J. Chris White

クリティカル・パス・メソッド(CPM)が1950年代に導入されたので、プロジェクト見積もりと計画における最新のイノベーションについて学びましょう。その当時CPMは大幅に改善されましたが、しかし今では現在の単純化されたCPMのアプローチではとても不十分です。今日のプロジェクトはより大規模で複雑化しており、より厳密なアプローチが求められています。CPMを使うことにより、リソースはタスク期間と切り離され、現実的なプロジェクト計画を立案することを困難または不可能にします。CPMでは「期間」はインプットです。
