Choosing the Best Project Management Methodology


Learn how a project management methodology clarifies activities and decisions.

Despite some claims to the contrary and the desires of senior leaders, there is no single “best” project management methodology for all situations.  At its core, project management is a process of creativity and change.  Whether it is developing a new product, building a new facility, upgrading an existing process/system, or planning your summer vacation; it is changing the existing state of things into a new and better state.  And this is why there is no one “best” methodology.  The existing state could be stable or in crisis, the new state could be clear or ambiguous, there are varying levels of constraints on time and resources, and there are varying levels of complexity of the project results and required activities.  This white paper reviews why a project management methodology will bring order into this environment.
