AGILE PM A trade-off between proactivity and reactivity

1,723 views

Published on

An exponential increase in complexity, a strong reduction of a product's lifecycle and market time frames are drastically challenging projects and their success.
In a context like this, what tools and techniques can be used by project management?
A proactive approach would seem to be highly effective.
But, is trying to anticipate any decision of an unpredictable future the best solution?
Alternatively, a reactive approach puts less effort on planning and greater attention in tackling any change.
But, are we sure that we can be completely reliant on this way?

  11. 11. Complexity - Stacey Matrix No clear relationships between cause and effect even if inspected. The approach is to Act, Sense, Respond and we can discover novel practice. The relationship between cause and effect can only be perceived in retrospect, but not in advance. Inspect and Adapt. Cause and effect can be understood only analyzing or investingating the system and its mechanisms. Apply good practices. Ralph Stacey Relationships between cause and effect are evident.
