6 hours 23 minutes
hello and welcome to our last lesson in this course less than 18. The summary and conclusion.
I'm still your instructor cane and thanks for hanging with me on this very, very long course.
So first thing I wanted to talk about, let's just go through the materials that were referenced on the course in a little bit more detail.
Um, and you should have links below this video where you can either popular link from the video or just click the link below.
So the first thing I wanted Thio uses the reference guide is obviously the PM box sixth edition by the Product Management Institute,
pretty much the most world renowned
ah project management book. So it's a great starting point when you're trying to get into the Project Management Field.
The second book There it is the one that talks about emergent
and ah, deliberate strategy called Strategy Safari. It's a really good book. I recommend that you get a copy of it when I just kind of get into
more of the strategic thinking. It's less you, obviously, project based. It's just more about executing strategy and developing strategy.
The PM process model, which I showed an earlier video, uh, was by created by myself. And it should also be available for download on the course
and as well as the road, a white paper for P M. I. A couple of years ago making the case for an executive project management office for the military's intelligence community.
That's an interesting take. Well, actually, I wrote it. So my fate It's interesting. It's an interesting take on how you can apply some of these fundamentals, too,
a less I T centric, but very much information centric organization,
some of the stuff that was additionally referenced in the course we've got the stoic philosophy. Forbes magazine, a magazine article
as well as the Republic by Plato.
Um, we've got the front window. Taylor's. That's the article that talks about his background in life
and kind of how he came to
become the father of complicated business process modeling
Team of Teens by General Stanley McChrystal. Excellent book about strategy, excellent introduction into learning organizations as well as complex versus complicated problem solving.
We've also got the Harvard Business Review Building the Learning Organization. It kind of goes into a more business friendly definition of our learning organization is is
a CZ well, as the sage Handbook of quality of data, which talks a lot about grounded theory development. That's by you, flick.
Um, then you've got the digitization of business article there from Bloom fire.
A swell as the article on the satisfy icing versus maximizing
just below it.
Then you've got the two links below those which are the two case studies, one
on the Airbus and one on the Apollo space program.
And then finally, we've got the article, the early warning signs of I t. Project failure, where I got the dominant and or dirty dozen information from.
So that's just kind of me going through the references because I do hope that
you continue to expand in this field. There's almost unlimited amount of research
available to enterprise product managers or strategy execute er's depending on what you want to call yourself,
really just kind of get out there and then read some of these articles and some of these books. And then look, att.
Other people that reference these or what these articles reference and just kind of keep
peeling back the layers of the onion and really start to develop your own style of strategy, execution and kind of find those best practices that work for you and your organization.
So in conclusion, we drink throughout this course an enterprise project management. We went over projects versus operations,
various types of strategies and cognitive frameworks, various types of organizational structures. Your project ties your functional your matrix
be got her arms around and understanding of the enterprise projects are how they can impact the organization and why they're just a little bit different than a normal tactical project.
We also understand understand the purpose of a either a p m o r e p m o at the agency your organization level and that ties directly to the need to execute and as well as
taken enterprise project through its life cycle.
We talked about enterprise project governance structures difference between a P S, C and A. D. S. C, as well as how to structure the project bureaucracy.
And I don't say that derogatory just the project team in such a way is to be successful.
We talked about various approaches to enterprise project. You're agile, your hybrid, uh,
scrums from Paul. I mean, there's a jillion different names for this thing, but just the difference in scale from a truly
deliberative waterfall project all the way to the emergent, agile style project we talked about overseeing and executing enterprise projects. What are some of the things that look for in that regard?
We talked about howto apply best practices and lessons learned at the tail end of a project
as well. It reviewed a enterprise project failure and enterprise project success for root cause analysis.
Thank you very much. This completes my course.
Please check back with Cy Berry often as I plan to create additional courses in project management. Thank you.
