This is important because it allows all stakeholders have a clear understanding of who should be involved. According to Bryson, the organization’s key decision makers should be involved, and some individual or some group must initiate and champion the strategic planning process. The agreement should be clear, for example state the purpose, the people involved, steps to be followed and functions, to mention a few. The process of an initial agreement starts by initiating the process itself. Then, introducing the concepts of strategic planning to your organization and developing an understanding of what strategic planning means in practice versus in theory.
I think it is vital to explain to the staff the importance of the goal and give them an opportunity to find ways to achieve using their creativity, experience and skills. By using a Performance Management Cycle it can provide a structure and a process to the way the staff are managed to identify any training or development needs. The aim is to produce and deliver a high standard of services to ensure all opportunities for improvement are identified and worked towards. Professional supervision supports staff to work towards our aims and goals, to achieve good practice and performance, giving support in areas we may be find difficult to achieve. It will give us a better understanding of our responsibilities within our job role and will help us to reflect on our own working practices.
Knowledge based and skill based training must be provided. Organizations must follow the methods that are used for determining the need for training. There should be a proper evaluation process executed in the organization to evaluate the trainers as well as the trainees. Feedback should be taken from the managers and the executives related to the training session. -ELIZIBITH.HURLOK
Quality planning activities and milestones will be incorporated into the overall project management plan. Inputs to quality planning will include: the scope baseline, the individual project requirements that, when taken together, constitute the full project scope; the stakeholder register which identifies those individuals who will actively contribute to the execution of the QP and who therefore need to be involved in quality planning; cost and schedule baselines which have a cascading effect on project scope; and, the risk register, which details the areas of risk that are related to quality and that may affect the planning process. Finally, we will also integrate the tenets of our quality p... ... middle of paper ... ... assist in undertaking the steps required to assess the work results’ adherence to quality standards. We will utilize appropriate measurement approaches to undertake QC, both qualitative and quantitative. Qualitative approaches will include cause and effect diagrams, flow charts, and inspections.
At the portfolio level (different programs and projects), the management should categorize the portfolio in terms of the goal to achieve and also the people involved in the implementation of the project. This means the project manager should have a clear layout of the people involved in the different programs and projects and assign them, specific goals which they should achieve. At the program level, each program should have a leader, the team working under the program leader and the structure processes. The team leader at the different programs should identify whether there is the need for a subcontracting, this shall depend on the vast nature of the program, expected time of completion and the returns
Maintaining the standards of communications. Appropriate use of communication matrix. Objective of project communication: - The main objective of communication is to: - Indorse the awareness for the project. To ensure that every stakeholder adapt the responsibility and action actioned to each stakeholder. To get the feed-back of stakeholder and proceed accordingly.
b. Ideas and suggestions of maximum utilization of resources should be collected and put into practice. c. A clear communication of successful implementation plan should be passed down so that the employees know what is expected of them. d. Every change made should be informed to all then and there. The differences between project management and change management are a.
The objectives of this phase are: identifying all activities and processes together with their interrelation as well as preparing instructions in form of charts, drawings, reports and analyses (Healy, 1997). It is important to prepare a sophisticated project plan, which all team members understand, to prevent problems, diminish risks and to gain a project which is adjusted to its environment. This means the project is not only well planned but can actually be successfuly implemented and used by the client (Cronenbroeck, 2004; Murphy, 2005). In this phase of the project the project plan, which is based on the project de-scription, is set up and it comprises the work breakdown structure (WBS), the project flow chart and the project schedule (Healy, 1997; Wolf et al., 2011). The WBS lists all project tasks, regardless of their duration and chronology.
Factors Important to Ongoing Team Dynamics Ongoing team dynamics take place after designing and launching a team. According to Polzer (2003), this is done to periodically assess team members’ collaboration patterns and work processes while working towards achieving their goals. The important factors to consider during this stage are: diagnosing and structuring formal team processes pertains to the task analysis to guide the allocation of a task by studying the dispersal of information, skills, and expertise among team members; diagnosing emergent team processes is anticipating and monitoring the actual behavior and interaction that emerges among team members; and assessing underlying identity dynamics, which pertains to who an individual is
The Project Manager is responsible for tracking risks and developing mitigation strategies/ contingency plans that address the risks identified by the team. Sometimes a risk identification “brainstorming” session can help in the initial identification process, mitigation strategies and contingency plans. Such meetings help team members understand various perspectives and can help the team better understand the “big picture.” The activities below describe the process for identifying, analyzing, prioritizing and responding to risks during the project lifecycle. The entire project team will be trained... ... middle of paper ... ...• M- Medium • L- Low Trigger Enter the event that would activate “trigger” the risk to occur here (i.e. what will cause the risk to occur?)
