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.

Launch Trajectory – Why Integrating Definition and Execution Is Critical to Development Project, Program and Portfolio Success

It isn't easy to make exact copies of even a simple product, but at least you begin that effort knowing what "done" looks like. Development introduces a special kind of challenge – you only learn what "done" looks like at the end. The critical path for execution becomes dependent upon the critical path for definition and vice versa. The development path can be thought of as a part "altitude" you wish to attain and part "distance" you must travel to get there. We'll use this powerful analogy to explore why development outcomes vary so widely, why Agile methods are essential, and to help you plot the optimum launch trajectory for any given effort.

This presentation will place EVM within the context of a maturing enterprise looking to understand what EVM is and is not, what it can do, and how to discuss a ‘tailored’ implementation. Attendees will learn how Earned Value is incorporated within the PMBOK®, within the project management methodology and how to ‘speak’ about the values delivered by EVM in terms of objective Technical Performance Measures (TPMs).

EVM has proven to be an effective method to measure project performance. However, the variables used to calculate EVM performance don't always clearly portray reality. One of those factors are the costs related to risk mitigation.
