Talk:Project management

From Organic Design

Defining what we want out of project management/workflow:

  • Scaleable (from Go to lunch to Launch a Shuttle)
  • Simple
  • Role Based View
  • Produce reports
  • track how time is spent
  • secure
  • Project status:
    • in the garage
    • in progress
    • completed
    • canceled
  • Features
    • Basic: attach documents, links, reminder, etc.

what project management tool do you use "balls to the wall"? if our tool can't be used as easy as pen and paper, and have the natural intuition of what is first priority regardless of urgent vs. impotant, it simply wont work for us. --Phalseid 04:03, 22 Oct 2006 (NZDT)

I could not agree more. I use a whiteboard, paper and a pencil...on top of my PM templates that I fill out in Word. Peder, you have seen the whiteboard. I do this because I have not found a PM tool that works simply enough for me. My method is a ripped off and simplified verions of FocusPM, which is a PM philosopy taught at HP. I showed you this before and can post here if necessary. All my PM has been focused on process or software development. I have used MS Projec and dotproject in the past and found that they do not handle smaller projects well without micro-management. That is why I want to create my own.

Where are these diagrams from? --Nad 21:45, 3 Oct 2006 (NZST)

andrew created them several years ago. what do you think? --Phalseid 22:44, 3 Oct 2006 (NZST)
They're really good - diagrams for the nodal model will need to be made from scratch sine they're specifically built on nodal reduction and the generic organisaion components, but having these diagrams and the ETVX/OODA etc is really good for comparison of other methodologies in the same arena. --Nad 22:50, 3 Oct 2006 (NZST)
