Soltow Different types of project management methodologies that other industries are using other The traditional approach Critical Chain Project Management Extreme Project Management Event chain methodology PRINCE2 Process­based management Agile Project Management How They are Used How The traditional approach • Critical Chain Project Management • The generalization of Extreme Programming to other kinds of projects is extreme project management, which may be used in combination with the process modeling and management principles of human interaction management. Event chain methodology • A method of planning and managing projects that puts more emphasis on the resources (physical and human) needed in order to execute project tasks. Extreme Project Management • A traditional phased approach identifies a sequence of steps to be completed. In the "traditional approach", we can distinguish 5 components of a project (4 stages plus control) in the development of a project. Event chain methodology is an uncertainty modeling and schedule network analysis technique that is focused on identifying and managing events and event chains that affect project schedules. PRINCE2 • PRINCE2 describes procedures to coordinate people and activities in a project, how to design and supervise the project, and what to do if the project has to be adjusted if it does not develop as planned. How They are Used How Process­based management • Driven by the use of Maturity models such as the CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) and ISO/IEC15504 Agile Project Management • In the agile software development or flexible product development approach, the project is seen as a series of relatively small tasks conceived and executed as the situation demands in an adaptive manner, rather than as a completely pre­planned process. Selecting the most appropriate methodology Careful consideration must be given to the overall project objectives, timeline, and cost, as well as the roles and responsibilities of all participants and stakeholders. • Initiation • Planning and design • Executing consists of the processes used to complete the work defined in the project management plan to accomplish the project's requirements. Monitoring and controlling • The main purpose is to plan time, cost and resources adequately to estimate the work needed and to effectively manage risk during project execution. Production or execution • If this stage is not performed well, it is unlikely that the project will be successful in meeting the business’ needs. The key benefit is that project performance is observed and measured regularly to identify variances from the project management plan. Project control systems Project control begins early in the project with planning and ends late in the project with post­implementation review, having a thorough involvement of each step in the process.
