In order to answer your questions, it´s helpfull to rewiew the PMBOK Guide - 6th edition.
It depends as per project complexity and organization and influence of stakeholders from case to case and different from project to project
While the field is evolving, and new technologies are creating some disruption, the main issues with delivering projects successfully have not changed. If nothing else, this shows that we are not great at learning lessons!
Thanks to all of you guys.
Recently I am working on a research topic
"Impact of Project Execution Planning and Process Coordination on Agile Project Success, with mediating role of Information Sharing"
In Pakistan Mostly projects are traditional base projects, and people dont like change so much... But now a days trend is "Customer deamnd change". So I want to search that if agile project management is better than traditional project in Pakistani context.
What did you say about this topic...
Agile, waterfall or hybrid leads to success depending of the context.
I can only speak for the Construction Industry. In your world the current and continuing challenges are these:
1) Civil Engineers from your region are typically poorly trained with no field experience. As a PM it is necessary to mentor and monitor Staff and field Engineers closely.
2) Generally, Construction Projects in your region have extremely poor Schedule Performance KPI's. In your region, it is usually an SPI of .3-meaning it would take 3X the workforce to meet the proposed schedule (theoretically- doesn't work that way in reality)
3) With the typical WBS of a Construction Project containing 15000 plus tasks, the practicality of Agile and Waterfall techniques is lost in the daily crisis management of the Project. However, every Project utilizes LEAN management techniques in Procurement due to the overall driver of Cash Flow requirements.
Lastly, I am amused by your theoretical decision between IT and Construction. I have several comments: What we execute in Construction is inherently DANGEROUS. The comparison with the IT environment is laughable, Safety Concerns are primary in my Industry. Secondly, Good PM's are born and not made- it is a very specific, aggressive, driven personality that manages Projects to the Deliverable- a common mantra for our business is "we do whatever it takes"- this is just not true in the IT business......
I hope this helps!
From the Trenches!
I am very happy to talk with you on this matter. In near fututre I would like to talk with you about this research.
Thank you so much
