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: 3,871 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.39 / 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.

Creating and Capturing Value – More than just Cost Reduction

Clarifying and widening the status quo around value, especially at the enterprise level. This webinar aims to offer an explanation of value management that goes beyond the notion of value engineering and process-based tools.

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

by Randall Iliff

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.

Earned Value and Earned Schedule Analysis Worksheet

PREMIUM deliverable
by Wilko Reinck

This Excel sheet performs the calculation for earned value and earned schedule analysis. The forecast resulting from all KPIs [time-based SPI, CPI, CPI (internal), CPI (external) and WPI] is calculated based on the different forecast methods proposed by A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). The user can choose which method shall be used for each KPI.

Project Plan/WBS Sample Template

PREMIUM deliverable
by Jirí Skrivánek

This MS Excel template is an example of a small or middle-range project including a WBS, a simplified schedule and a summary of progress, which uses earned value management (EVM). The supporting article (Stop Being Scared of Spreadsheets!) encourages mainly junior PMs to play with the template and practice their knowledge on small projects. The article is not a step-by-step tutorial. Instead of detailed instructions, it discusses a few things that are crucial to start both managing projects and advanced work with spreadsheets.

Topic Teasers Vol. 112: PMBOK® Guide—Sixth Edition New Earned Schedule Theory

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: One of my colleagues told me that they are changing the earned value management (EVM) formulas. We have many projects in progress, with automated charts and spreadsheets configured with the current calculations I was taught to use in my Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification exam prep training. Is this true that the math is being altered by PMI?

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。

Scheduling: Walk Before You Run

by Guilherme Calôba, PMP

When it comes to scheduling, you cannot do advanced tasks before covering the basics. Most people want to do PERT analyses and critical path sensitivities, Monte Carlo simulations and applications of earned value techniques. Those tools can be helpful in providing guidance for better decision making, but a lot of ground must be covered first.

Tricking the System: How to Track Costs for Projects with Internal Resources

by Cory Adcock, PMP

It can sometimes get lost that there are a great number of projects initiated every day that will never have a formal budget associated to them. It is important that PMs and management not lose sight that even internal projects can benefit from the rigor of cost management processes and EVM principles.
