Questions our clients will be asking themselves during our brief:What are they offering?Why is it the right approach?Why are they the best organization to offer the right approach? (Why can’t I just do this myself?)How much will it cost?Use LEAST amt of time/money accomplishingAlthough challenges may be different, solution is the same: COLLABORATION of Resources (systems, money, people)Convergent Generalization – To draw conclusions, understand the main concept or idea, understand and comprehend the problem, converge on an answer and understand the problem. Situational Analysis- Define and analyze:EconomyTechnologyPolitical/legal Social/cultural trends – education, lifestyle changes(So it is essentially PEMSI … but without the military slant)ID of saving potentialThe example (e.g., Forge.mil Sharepoint whatever) covers one aspect of a solution but the same example also covers the people, process, and methods the technology enables. The point is that the areas are tightly coupled.
Value of Collaboration Why this is the right approach:Allows information to be visible, accessible, reusable, and understandable.Enables reuse of information to allow for efficiency and reduces time of deliveryHelps to identify duplicity and gaps in process and servicesHelps to identify the correct problems to solveHelps to evolve a standard set of processes.Brings people together despite of where they are physically located Important for connections between the proper people to accomplish the task faster/efficientlySystems are complexReduce duplication effortsStandardize Groupthink is a type of thought within a deeply cohesive in-group whose members try to minimize conflict and reach consensus without critically testing, analyzing, and evaluating ideas. It is a second potential negative consequence of group cohesion.Addresses the lament of management regarding a policy’s design and how a policy is executed.
Org Agility (SOA concept). The agility is the organization’s ability to adapt to new challenges within the resources it already possesses. It is implemented in SOA circles through the ability of management, technologists, and developers to work together (as opposed to just throwing things over the fence).Focus on PPMT, recognizing the vision of the client.Each client has their own PPMTsNo industry standard for this process because it is not possible to standardize and individual. HolisticTailored CULTURE driving forceHow does bullet one relate to bullet two??How does agility differ between internal PPMT and external PPMT’s??
