From Gartner PPM Summit 2010

Some sentences ‘picked-up’ during sessions of first day in the “Gartner PPM (Program and Portfolio Management) and IT Governance Summit 2010”, in London:

  • Anyone can read the PMBOK. Not everyone can lead a project
  • A project represents an investment of the organization to make a change
  • Negative people have a problem for every solution
  • We are going from triple inner restrictions in Project Management (Time, Cost and Scope) to five-restrictions: Time, Cost, Scope, Innovation and Sustainability
  • Future Project Manager skill base: Technical Foundation + Leadership Skills + Strategy/Business Management
  • Stakeholder is any group or individual that can affect, or is affected, by a particular work effort
  • When you find yuorself in a hole, stop digging
  • Only when you can ‘see’ value, are you able  to tell what is waste and then start to get rid of it
  • Value is created in 3 ways: Product Development, Information Management and Physical transformation/service delivery
  • The Lean ‘revelation’: if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem

Some recommedation, from Gartner analysts, in order to be prepared for a changing future, as a project/program/portfolio managers:

  • Develop a strong knowledge of some aspects of the business
  • Develop the skills necessary to deliver results
  • Improve either:
    • Your change management skills
    • Your knowledge management skills
    • Your contract management skills
    • Your portfolio management skills
    • Your program management skills
  • How do you eat an elephant? One bit at a time

I hope you will enjoy them!
