In this series of articles, I will be showing you how you can use the knowledge and techniques of project management to get more accomplished in less time. This will be easier said than done, of course, because there are many acceptable degrees and abbreviations that identify project management, however, there are still those out there that prefer to call themselves, as they are more concerned with project-centric thinking and less with individual work tasks or activities. As outlined on a PRINCE2 Training Birmingham.
The idea behind project management means to understand the “big picture”. To clear out the project schedule and prioritize the topics needed for the specific project and the time needed for each. This should be accomplished using a structure which can be categorized based on one of the three cyclical Pay-for-Performance method. The pay-for-performance method is a certain type of prioritization thatPN handlingpeople can use to break ‘job’ tasks and related responsibilities into smaller and smaller components that should then be done by the project people. This process gives the team members a picture of where they are at and which components they need to let some focus and assistance. This can be done through other aptitude-based analysis tools as well, like Pgage Job Analysis (PJMA), Pareto Chart, Level volatile, and Critical Path analysis and so on. The Pareto chart is one technique of Pareto charting which displays the 80/20 relationship or order, utilizing the Pareto’s principle that is simply to say that 80% of the work comes from 20% of the people!
Another effective method for P&P analysis is Critical Path Analysis (CPA), which is being used in project management for many years and is a more updated version of the Pareto’s method. It is equipped with and even a more graphical demonstration of Pareto’s principle and allows for the prediction of the number of resource required to complete a task or a particular project and the time it will take to complete it. This is a very useful tool for project managers as it shows whether or not resources are efficient and given the appropriate amount of time and effort, the results of the PDM are less time-consuming with minimal errors. Pareto’s principle simply states that if we look at the different tasks in the organization and ascertains the time and effort differs accordingly, the results of the PDM will be understandable. By looking at the PDM we can derive the necessary improvements in the process to lower the time taken to complete tasks and ultimately, the quality of the output.
Another basic technique that is becoming more prevalent over the last several years is the ‘ dedicate time’ concept. This can just as easily be used to mean assigning additional resources, when the existing resources are being used up by other projects! A common location for this is on functional groups within the organization. Very useful when you are assigning extra time to deliver the work, rather than adding personnel to a project at a temporary temporary-hire basis because something else is happening and they have a time commitment’ better for you. Dedicated time is a more practical and more practical way of using paid time to get by these days!
This type of organization wide project management process is a good project manager tool as long its practice and is properly used by all of the project management staff. The other two areas, however, should not be overly stress on. The good thing about dedicated time is that the management can easily maintain them, thereby combining a great structure with the additional resource to act as a team!
