Overview Project Productivity Improvement
What the course is all about, its basics, its bigger predecessors
If we try to define a project, we can see that “a project is a temporary undertaking that moves towards attaining a particular goal or objective to bring about improvements or changes or new products or service altogether within a fixed business structure.”
Project Productivity Improvement is a part and parcel of Project Management. With its inception in the 1950s, it was formally selected as a methodical approach to implementing the tasks and plans that were prepared to achieve a project objective.
Some postulations dictated the manner in which each project was considered and the approach was homogeneously applied to throughout the industries. This was a conservative approach and that suggested the plans would stay unchanged after the settlement was reached and no changes or risks were encountered thereafter. The project, in this case, was open to being influenced in some way or the other within businesses. So, this was a rather inflexible process.
As the years rolled by, and as many diverse notions and methodologies came into being, Project Management became more flexible helping project managers to be successful in their ventures.
In Project Management training, you need to have a deep interest in Project Management, basic computer knowledge and the passion for learning and acquiring knowledge.
The PPI course covers the application of PPI on Development as part and parcel of the ADM lifecycle. This is the first of the course series on PPI. The second of the series will deal with PPI tools and it will encompass Primavera. It will show the manner in which these processes are implemented.
Legacy modernization or software modernization is the conversion, rewriting, or porting of a legacy system and to a modern computer programming language software libraries, protocols, or hardware platforms. Referring to ADM, it is the initiative to standardize views of the existing systems so that common modernization activity is enabled including code analysis and comprehension, software transformation.
Project Management encompasses Project Management Characteristics, Life Cycle and Phases, Process Groups and Knowledge Areas, Project Integration Management, Scope Management and Time Management. Three factors – time, cost and scope determine the way Project Management is carried out directs the project manager when making different types of decisions. These are three constraints in the realm of Project Management. As these aspects determine the approaches and the manner in which the project is devised there are phases or processes to project that bear the same characteristics. It is these projects that make up the project’s life cycle and every stage determines the progress of the project. These phases include:
- Monitor and Control
