A Breakthrough Framework for Adaptive Project Management from Project Management Guru Robert K. Wysocki Traditional project management models simply are not appropriate for an increasing number of critical projects, for which complete requirements and objectives cannot be specified upfront, and relentless change cannot be avoided. What's needed is an entirely new framework for project management: one that combines Agile methods with the profession's most enduring best practices. In this book, Robert K. Wysocki provides that framework-the Adaptive Project Framework (APF)-and shows how to apply it in any domain. Wysocki, one of the world's leading project management consultants, has spent decades helping large organizations succeed with complex projects. Drawing on everything he's learned, he explains why a fundamentally new framework is needed, and introduces all five phases of that framework. He covers artifacts, processes, and deliverables, and shows how to utilize each phase most effectively in your environment. Through four detailed case studies, you'll discover how APF can help you adapt to unexpected events, encouraging creative responses based on open partnerships between clients and project teams. Coverage includes Bringing greater flexibility and speed to any project, regardless of its goals or context Moving forward successfully with projects that have vague requirements Discovering what clients really want, not just what they say they want Managing ongoing scope changes throughout a project Customizing APF to your own environment Integrating APF with existing agile software development methods Overcoming the obstacles to success with APF Preparing for the future of project management This book is written for every project participant-project and program managers, software and product developers, process designers, and business analysts-who needs to deliver results in a world that won't stand still.

This book investigates solutions incorporated by architecture boards in global enterprises to resolve issues and mitigate related architecture risks, while also proposing and implementing an adaptive integrated digital architecture framework (AIDAF) and related models and approaches/platforms, which can be applied in companies to promote IT strategies using cloud/mobile IT/digital IT. The book is divided into three main parts, the first of which (Chapters 1-2) addresses the background and motivation for AIDAF aligned with digital IT strategies. The second part (Chapter 3) provides an overview of strategic enterprise architecture (EA) frameworks for digital IT, elaborates on the essential elements of EA frameworks in the digital IT era, and advocates using AIDAF, models for architecture assessment/risk management, knowledge management on digital platforms. In turn, the third part (Chapters 4-7) demonstrates the application and benefits of AIDAF and related models, as shown in three case studies. "I found this book to be a very nice contribution to the EA community of practice. I can recommend this book as a textbook for digital IT strategists/practitioners, EA practitioners, students in universities and graduate schools." (From the Foreword by Scott A. Bernard) "In this new age of the digital information society, it is necessary to advocate a new EA framework. This book provides state-of-the art knowledge and practices about EA frameworks beneficial for IT practitioners, IT strategists, CIO, IT architects, and even students. It serves as an introductory textbook for all who drive the information society in this era."(From the Foreword by Jun Murai)

Benjamin Franklin knew instinctively what so many of us have forgotten: Frugality and industriousness are the ways to wealth. After the last set of business scandals and financial busts, many powerful interests, from governments to multinational corporations, are exploring how to do more with less. Businesses and individuals are seeking a realignment of frugality and prosperity in hopes of regaining their balance and securing their futures. Doing More with Less dives into our primal competitive instinct, which embraces frugality as a crucial competitive edge. Author Bruce Piasecki convincingly explains the case for a return to frugality, providing relevant examples from his 30 years of experience as a management consultant and change agent. Liberate more of your resources by realigning money, people, and rules in your life that impact your family and your company. Doing More with Less is an actionable call to arms, with global insights - applicable to professionals in any industry - that will make you more adept in the short run and adaptive in the long run. When you establish principles of frugality, you'll receive abundant recompense with less debt and risk. Through frugality, we recognize obligations beyond our own needs and capture greater returns for ourselves, our families, and our firms. Let it be your mantra: Doing more with less is success. It is time to rediscover basic frugality and create a better tomorrow for ourselves and for the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Piasecki, Therese Plummer.

Five new videos and video cases featuring Crayola, Continental Tire, Some Burros, and W-T Graphix addressing the topics of operations strategy, process choice, inventory management, supply chain design, and facility location. Video Cases provide a summary of content covered in a series of on-location video profiles of real-world service and manufacturing companies and challenges they face in their operations. Questions are included for classroom discussion or assignment purposes. ● Updated! Cases challenge students to grapple with a capstone problem that can be used as an in-class exercise or a homework assignment or team project. ● Updated! Managerial Practices provide current examples of how companies deal—successfully or unsuccessfully—with process and supply chain issues facing them as they run their operations. Most have been updated in this edition, giving current examples of operations management to students. ● Updated!

These examples always close with a unique feature called Decision Point, which focuses students on the decision implications for managers. End of Chapter Resources ● NEW! Learning Goals improve learning by matching each learning goal with a major head in the chapter. Added Learning Goals in Review at the end of each chapter, which highlights where each goal is addressed in the chapter and cross references them with a rich set of MyOMLab resources including Videos, Active Models, Tutors, OM Explorer, and POM for Windows at the student’s disposal. ● Key Equations for review purposes, organized by major chapter head. ● Key Terms for review purposes, the page references highlight where the concept was first discussed. ● Solved Problems reinforce and help students prepare their homework assignments by detailing how to solve model problems with the appropriate techniques presented in the chapter. ● Discussion Questions test student comprehension of the concepts through the use of short scenarios. ● NEW!

The six exercises reinforce student learning. Each exercise has been thoroughly tested in class and proven to be a valuable learning tool. ● A Video Library in MyOMLab offers at least one video case for each chapter, which makes for excellent class discussion and learning. Three tutorials are also included. Keep Your Course Current and Relevant ● NEW! Ten new chapter openers highlighting the operations of Disney Corporation, QVC, Inc., Tesla Motors, Aldi Supermarkets, Kimberly-Clark, Netflix, Cooper Tire and Rubber Company, Philips, Amazon.com, and Coral Princess Cruise liner. ● NEW!
