8 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 8

9 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 9 Project management is “the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities in order to meet or exceed stakeholder needs and expectations from a project” (PMI*, Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide), 1996, p. 6) WHAT IS PROJECT MANAGEMENT?

10 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 10 OPERATION VS PROJECT Operation – Existing systems – Repetitive work – Efficiency and effectiveness – Reliance on standard procedures – Line management – Focus on “maintaining” Project –One-time resource configuration –Unique and separate work –Cohesion and direction –End-product driven –Stakeholder driven –Project orientation –Focus on “change”

11 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 11 CHARACTERISTICS OF A PROJECT ● Specific objectives- Time, Cost & Performance ● Multi-Disciplinary – different disciplines, companies and countries ● Temporary undertakings- definite start and end date; therefore of finite duration ● Consume and compete for scarce resources ● Produce unique and one-off outcomes ● Phases - Project has a number of phases/schedule ● Usually have own budgets ● One leader assigned overall responsibility ● Projects are subject to a lot of changes ● Subject to conflicts

12 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 12

13 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 13 PROJECT OBJECTIVES ● Performance and quality standards ● Safety and reliability ● Timescales and timing of events ● Costs: budgets and rates of spend ● Use of resources ● Value and cost benefits/effectiveness ● Management requirements and contract agreements

14 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 14 PROJECT STAKEHOLDERS ● Stakeholders are the people involved in or affected by project activities ● Stakeholders include – the project sponsor and project team – support staff – customers – users – suppliers – opponents to the project

15 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 15 WHEN IS A PROJECT A PROJECT? Stewart (1965) uses four criteria ● Scope- definable in terms of a single, specified end result ● Unfamiliarity-unique, infrequent, more uncertainty ● Complexity- greater degree on interdependency amongst tasks ● Stake (risk)- Outcome affects company’s stake

16 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 16 TRIPLE CONSTRAINTS OF PROJECT MANAGEMENT Solutions must not exceed boundaries

17 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 17 NORMAL MEASURES OF SUCCESS ● New Products ● New Markets ● New Facilities ● New Organisational Forms ● Etc Subject to the triple constraints of satisfying Time, Cost and Performance criteria

22 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 22 TORRE DAVID ● Is Torre David a failure or a success? Discuss. – How do you measure the success/failure – What are the factors that most influence a successful/failed project outcome? ● What are the causes that lead to under- performing of projects? How do they arise?

23 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 23 OTHER MEASURES OF PROJECT SUCCESS ● National pride or security ● Learning and experience ● Improved status and visibility ● Training and development ● Opportunities for authority and responsibility ● Improved ability/skills

24 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 24 SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE- PROJECT MANAGEMENT FAILURE? "The construction of the beautiful freestanding, sculptural tripartite Opera House was one of the longest contractual sagas of the century. Sadly, architect Jorn Utzon became the scapegoat of a scandalous political affair and in 1966 withdrew from his project. Originally, the winner of an international open competition in 1957, it was a scheme that broke most of the rules. It was finally completed in August 1973 by other hands under the direction of Peter Hall."

25 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 25 IRONIC ISN’T IT? ● Despite its failure as a PM exercise, the Sydney Opera House is considered a world-class venue for opera and a tourist attraction. It is one of the 20th century's most distinctive buildings and one of the most famous performing arts centres in the world. ● So, are we confusing between the project exercise and the result of a project?

26 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 26 CONCORDE-FAILURE ? ● Conceived in The first prototype (aircraft 001 F-WTSS) was rolled out on 11 December 1967, but extensive ground testing meant that it didn't fly until 2 March In December 1971, the first pre- production aircraft (101) made its maiden flight. ● However, the oil crisis sparked by the 'Yom Kippur' war of 1973 had a most devastating affect on sales. The soaring cost of fuel rendered Concorde completely uneconomic for all but state-subsidised airlines.

27 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 27 SUCCESS IN FAILURE ● Although the Concorde was a commercial failure, it was a marvellous engineering success and flew for almost thirty years until its retirement in 2003.

45 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 45 Scope Management

46 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 46 Project Scope Management ● Organisation scope – defining scopes amongst organisations involved ● Project scope – defining scopes of the project itself ● Activity scope – determining how detailed you want to cover the activity 46

47 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 47 Project Time Management ● Create project calendar ● Define WBS ● Define the activities ● Determine sequence of activities ● Estimate activities duration ● Estimate activities resources ● Determine constraints and limitation ● Develop schedule ● Control 47

48 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 48 WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE ● A work breakdown structure (WBS) is an outcome- oriented analysis of the work involved in a project that defines the total scope of the project ● A graphical display of the project that shows division of work in a multilevel system ● The concept of the WBS is simple: in order to manage a whole project, one must manage/control each of its part ● It is a foundation document in project management because it provides the basis for planning and managing project schedules, costs, and changes

49 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 49 WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE ● WBS defines: – Work to be performed – The needed expertise, – Selection of the project team, – Base for project scheduling and control ● The development of WBS is a continuing process: – Starts when the project is first assigned to the project manager – Continues until all work packages have been defined

54 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 54 APPROACHES TO DEVELOP WBS ● Using guidelines: Some organizations, like the DOD, provide guidelines for preparing WBSs ● The analogy approach: It often helps to review WBSs of similar projects ● The top-down approach: Start with the largest items of the project and keep breaking them down ● The bottoms-up approach: Start with the detailed tasks and roll them up

55 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 55 BASIC PRINCIPLES FOR CREATING WBS 1. A unit of work should appear at only one place in the WBS. 2. The work content of a WBS item is the sum of the WBS items below it. 3. A WBS item is the responsibility of only one individual, even though many people may be working on it. 4. The WBS must be consistent with the way in which work is actually going to be performed; it should serve the project team first and other purposes only if practical. 5. Project team members should be involved in developing the WBS to ensure consistency and buy-in. 6. Each WBS item must be documented to ensure accurate understanding of the scope of work included and not included in that item. 7. The WBS must be a flexible tool to accommodate inevitable changes while properly maintaining control of the work content in the project according to the scope statement. *Cleland, David I.

62 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 62 WHY ARE PROJECTS HARD? ● Resources – People, materials ● Planning – What needs to be done? – How long will it take? – What sequence? – Keeping track of who is supposedly doing what, and getting them to do it

63 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 63 IT PROJECTS ● Half finish late and over budget ● Nearly a third are abandoned before completion – The Standish Group, in Infoworld ● Get & keep users involved & informed ● Watch for scope creep / feature creep

64 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 64 PROJECT SCHEDULING ● Establishing objectives ● Determining available resources ● Sequencing activities ● Identifying precedence relationships ● Determining activity times & costs ● Estimating material & worker requirements ● Determining critical activities

65 innovative ● entrepreneurial ● global 65 WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE ● Hierarchy of what needs to be done, in what order ● For me, the hardest part – I’ve never done this before. How do I know what I’ll do when and how long it’ll take? – I think in phases – The farther ahead in time, the less detailed – Figure out the tricky issues, the rest is details – A lot will happen between now and then – It works not badly with no deadline
