How To Choose A Project Management Methodology
Your project management method is a blueprint that shows your team how to “build” a successful project - it should be a step by step guide. There are a large amount of project management methodologies to choose from, many course you can take, and methodologies that can be combined, but how do you know which one to choose?
It is important for your project progress that you use a management methodology that works for you, your project, and your team. Here are a few tips and things to consider when making your decision.
1. Envision the end. Look at your instructions - what does your final product or final deliverables need to look like and what benefits will this provide?
Think about the project you are about to take on - consider what problems may arise, project constraints, tools, stakeholders, project size and cost, core values, goals, etc.
2. Look at what you are doing now – is it working? Are the process that you have in place working for you? What kind of environment does your team work best in? Does your team work well together? Are they flexible to new ideas and changes or do they need a structured plan?
3. Now look at which methodologies support both your project goals and your team’s strong points. Your project management methodology should not only get the best results but should allow that your team works to the best of their ability in order to get the best results.
Here at Stratsure we offer project management in both Agile and PRINCE2 methodologies. Visit our website to find out more about our accredited courses.
Agile is best used for more creative projects where goals are flexible and can be modified as the project advances. Agile methodologies are similar to that of a chef who takes his/her food as he cooks and adjusts accordingly.
PRINCE2 is a methodology used on a more corporate level where extensive planning and documentation is necessary. PRINCE2 is a methodology created for projects in controlled environments.
