Project management :

Implementing any changes in the way people work, at the same time as assuring the operational day to day activities of the company is never an easy job. Any additional work generated by Project Management is never welcome. 
It is important that the planning system provides information and sets the conditions for communication which makes peoples lives easier :

  • Think & plan in terms of the Results required from the project (not the list of tasks to perform)

  • Define clearly the "Material Deliverables" which justify achieving the Results through negotiation between Customers and Suppliers

  • Define the inter-functional activities to achieve the Results

  • Define detailed tasks only as necessary to achieve activities, in a "rolling wave" just in time fashion, to avoid unnecessary detail too early

  • Feed back progress visually with succinct indicators
