Structured System Management - A New Project and Program Management Tool
The ANSI G1 standard was created by a group at the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Government Division, led by the presenter, as a means of developing and providing oversight for management systems, including project management. Its structured system methodology leads users to define outcomes and outputs of a system (project or program) and then the key milestones required for its successful delivery. The milestones, called Principal Activity Groups, are then further defined through development of measurable or verifiable requirements, which can be used to track their successful completion. These Principal Activity Groups are again analyzed, to define "causes" of success, which become the tasks and actions of a defined "best practice operational plan." The methodology should be of great interest and will provide another means of in-depth planning for projects. It should also provide a source of learning for both the Project Management Office and program management of all types. The webinar will explore the methodology of structured system management, and the method and benefit of its application in all these areas. Overall structured system management is a valuable new tool that project managers should consider.
- Understand and be able to use the structured system management framework, and to apply it to project planning and oversight
- Understand how development of principal activity groups will assist in work breakdown structure, and in project performance management
- Be able to create a system map for project management, and through that analysis will be able to evaluate and structure a best practice operational plan for a PMO
- Be able to create a system map for any program management office, with a best practice operational plan and performance measures
