  • Chapter 1: Introduction to the Process Improvement Life Cycle. Designing, documenting, and implementing a project management methodology is a major undertaking. It is met with several obstacles, including: • Cultural and organizational barriers to change; • Replacing existing project management habits; • Rugged individualism of technical professionals. An organization will never reach the point where it is safe to say that all three of these obstacles have been neutralized. In fact, these obstacles will continuously plague projects for as long as there are projects to be plagued.

  • Chapter 6: Commissioning Improvement Initiatives At this point we have assembled all of the tools we will need to implement a continuous project management process improvement program. Our next task is to put all of this together into a coherent program that moves our project management culture from its current maturity level to a desired end state. That end state may encompass all 39 project management processes, all nine knowledge areas, or only a selected number of processes or knowledge areas.

  • We decided to write this book when we discovered that a majority of the companies we talked to had dysfunctional and low-value added processes for budgeting, fore- casting, and financial reporting. And, as financial executives come and go, typically little is done to streamline these processes. Even when large amounts of money are invested in new financial software, the solutions are usually put in place based on the old, inefficient routines.

  • Chapter 9: Appendix: Maturity Assessment Questionnaire The Maturity Assessment Questionnaire consists of more than 800 questions divided into 39 project management processes grouped by knowledge area. Each process consists of a number of questions at each of the five maturity levels. The answers to each question are either “Yes,” “No,” or “Not Applicable.” For ease in identification, the question numbers are composed of three parts. The first character in the number is a letter that denotes the knowledge area.

  • Chapter 2: Overview of the Project Management Maturity Model. 2.1 The Software Engineering Institute Capability Maturity Model Beginning as early as 1986 the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), which is affiliated with Carnegie Mellon University, began developing a process maturity framework for software development [1]. With financial support from the Department of Defense this early effort resulted in the publication of the Capability Maturity Model® (CMM®) [2] in 1991.

  • Chapter 3: Assessing and Reporting Maturity Level. At this point we have a good grasp of the CMM as applied to project management. We have described maturity at all five levels for each of the 39 processes that makes up the nine knowledge areas of the PMBOK standard. We have seen that level 3 is the transition between having a documented process (level 2) and having all project teams using the process (level 3). Level 3 defines project management process practice (PP) level maturity. Level 2 defines project management process definition (PD) level maturity. Levels 1, 4, and 5 define both PD...

  • Chapter 8: Closing Thoughts Companies are beginning to realize that they have to get a better return on their project management investment. Many have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours of employee time building a project management methodology for their organization. They expect to get business value in the way of a higher success rate on the projects they undertake and a more effective and efficient execution of projects. When it does not happen, which is often the case, they need to aggressively develop a strategy to get that return.

  • Chapter 5: Tools to Investigate Improvement Opportunities. We have discussed the assessment, plotting, and analysis of both PD and PP maturity level data. We know how to target those knowledge areas that should be further investigated for improvement opportunities. We have suggested a few approaches for ranking improvement opportunities. In this chapter we look under the hood at a knowledge area or individual process within a knowledge area to analyze the PD or PP performance to define potential areas for improvement initiatives.

  • Chapter 4: Metrics to Identify Project Improvement Opportunities In the last chapter we discussed Kiviatt Charts and Box & Whisker Plots. These are two tools that can be used to display PD and PP data in our search for process-wide and practice-wide improvement opportunities. This would typically be the starting point for identifying major areas where improvement opportunities should be focused.

  • Chapter 7: Case Study: B. Stoveburden Trucking Company Improvement initiatives may be little more than educated guesses at the ideas and activities that have the potential of improving the maturity level of a process or knowledge area. Remember, they may have come as a result of a brainstorming session. Even though they are the task force’s educated guesses, they are expected to result in some level of improvement. That expectation may even be stated quantitatively.

  • Writing Skills Abstract Advanced writing skills are an important aspect of academic performance as well as subsequent work-related performance. However, American students rarely attain advanced scores on assessments of writing skills (National Assessment of Educational Progress, 2002). In order to achieve higher levels of writing performance, the working memory demands of writing processes should be reduced so that executive attention is free to coordinate interactions among them.

  • Meat has long been a central component of the human diet, both as a food in its own right and as an essential ingredient in many other food products. Its importance has also attracted controversy. Meat consumption has, for example, been associated with chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. These and other concerns, such as those over safety, have led to declining consumption of some types of red meat in regions such as the EU. As a result, the questions of what defines meat quality in the minds of consumers, and the ways these quality attributes can be maintained...

  • Stop Producing Chaos – a cry from the heart! When the great guru of quality management and process improvement W. Edwards Deming died at the age of 93 at the end of 1993, the last words on his lips must have been ‘Management still doesn’t understand process variation’. Despite all his efforts and those of his followers, including me, we still find managers in manufacturing, sales, marketing, finance, service and public sector organizations all over the world reacting (badly) to information and data.

  • An ideal way to run this experiment would be to run all the 4x3=12 wafers in the same furnace run. That would eliminate the nuisance furnace factor completely. However, regular production wafers have furnace priority, and only a few experimental wafers are allowed into any furnace run at the same time. Non-Blocked method A non-blocked way to run this experiment would be to run each of the twelve experimental wafers, in random order, one per furnace run.
