PREMIUM deliverable

We Have a Problem with Success

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

It’s a very strange thing, but we don’t really like success. We don’t embrace it. We often forget to celebrate it. We very frequently look upon the idea of rejoicing in success as an unproductive and unnecessary frivolity. But it doesn’t have to be this way...

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。

Project and Change Management: Yin and Yang?

by Gary Hamilton

The terms “project management” and “change management” are often used interchangeably. But at best, the core functions and skills merely serve to complement one another.
