The project management bases have been established since around 1900 by people like Henry Gantt (1861 – 1919) and Henri Fayol (1841 – 1925), founded on the theories of Frederick Windslow Taylor (1856 – 1915). They have been then continuously developped and improved in the same direction.
However, since over 30 years, the Taylor theories have been deeply revised on the basis of the “lean” concepts. The method explained in this Project Handling Tool has been specifically taylored to follow the new rules. For instance it explains how to put up “make it right right away” project developpement technics instead of the “make – check – adjust” one used so far, as well as how to practice “built in” risk management. These are just exemples of the drastic changes as compared to nearly all the other PMBoKs.
If developing equipment without making prototypes is important to you, it is a must.
It is a new approach from scratch and not an upgrade of the traditional way.
