Manage the Forest, Not the Trees

by Andy Jordan

Project control is not about the minutiae, it’s about the big picture. Here we provide some guidelines on how to move from micro-level project management to a more macro-level control phase.

Requirements Redux

by Jiju (Jay) Nair, PMP

PM principles state that there should be absolute clarity in obtaining the requirements. If the fog of ambiguity clouds this phase, the delivered project will never be accepted by the stakeholders. Here we examine some of the glaring issues in the requirements management process.

Contract Killing

by Dr. David F. Rico, PMP, CSM

Does the use of agile project management require new contract models in order to be successful? Can agile project management be used with traditional fixed-price contracts? Does agile project management require a new type of contract (and if so, what kinds)? Furthermore, wouldn’t a new type of contract discourage the use of agile PM?

Dashboards, Scorecards and Project Status (Oh My!)

by Kenneth Darter, PMP

Stakeholders need to know the status of a project. A good status report will report status and also foster communication to benefit the project’s health. Here, we explore some of your options.

Project + Government = Change

by Kenneth Darter, PMP

Transitions can be difficult when management and stakeholders change--something that happens on a regular basis in the government. Some basic guidelines can keep the project on track.

Getting Procurement to Support Projects: Mission Impossible?

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

Where evolving procurement requirements come from, and why, is in reality no different than how requirements evolve in any organizational area. The challenge is that they compound themselves, layering restriction upon constraint upon requirement. What can an organization do to improve its procurement efforts? What can be done to make procurement work in support of projects rather than be a barrier, roadblock or black hole?

The Problems with RFPs (Part 1)

by Craig Curran-Morton

This two-part article will provide you with some insight into some of the most frustrating aspects that vendors experience when they attempt to decipher the hieroglyphics found in the proposal documents. The first part will focus on the content of the RFP.

Procurement Management Done Agile (Part 1)

by Don Kim

This will be the first in a series of articles that will look to provide the background of issues involved with managing an agile software development project under a traditionally linear and sequential project procurement process. Software development has been deliberately chosen for the example industry since that’s the domain for which agile is most typically used, but for those using agile in other industry domains, the general issues and proposed solution should work equally well within your industry.

Freeze the Client!

by Kenneth Darter, PMP

They approved the scope statement?! Freeze the client! Sigh...if only it were that simple. Maybe it's time to learn to love change instead of struggling against it.

Project Management: Lingua Franca or Tower of Babel?

by Mark Mullaly, Ph.D., PMP

Project management is becoming recognized on an international scale. In support of this, there are a number of efforts underway to promote a global view of how we think about, discuss and practice project management. But to what extent is project management a universal language? To what extent can it be? Or are we all simply sowing confusion as we use the same words to mean very different things?

I hate asking for change. They always make a face. It's like asking them to donate a kidney.
