Desafios do Gerente de Projetos

Project DPro, Project Management
  Um desafio, por definição, é uma situação difícil ou perigosa que alguém enfrenta, então a primeira coisa que geralmente pensamos quando falamos em desafios é numa situação que enfrentamos, a partir da qual podemos triunfar ou não. O interessante, então, não é somente analisar o desafio, mas também os elementos que farão a diferença entre encará-lo de maneira bem-sucedida, ou simplesmente enfrentá-lo e deixar ao acaso o sucesso ou o fracasso que se pode obter. Na Gestão de Projetos Sociais, os desafios são inúmeros. Na grande maioria dos cenários, temos um problema social, muito difícil de resolver, causado por inúmeros fatores e que foram mantidos por anos. Somados a esse problema, estão diferentes atores, com interesses diferentes, e muitas vezes a única coisa que fazem é contribuir para tornar…

Using Iterative Planning Models to Manage Change

Project DPro Guide, Project Management
Does this scenario sound familiar? A three-year project has entered year two of its implementation phase. In general, the project is going OK. The logic of the project intervention is still valid, and the deliverables are still viable. There is, however, a significant problem with the project plan. The field reality of year two implementation has little in common with what was predicted when the project plans were developed 20 months earlier. It is increasingly clear that certain budget estimates were significantly underestimated, while other line items are no longer needed because of changes to the roles of implementing partners. While these challenges can be addressed through a combination of issues management and change requests, some projects have addressed it through a strategy of iterative project planning.

While the challenges confronting development projects are extensive and complex, they are by no means exclusive to projects managed in the development sector. [caption id="attachment_6681" align="alignright" width="333"] Chaos Report Project Results[/caption] Take, for example, the information provided in this graph and its accompanying table. Each year the Standish Group conducts a survey entitled the Chaos Report, collecting responses from over 10,000 Information Technology (IT) projects. The report identifies the percentage of IT projects evaluated as “succeeded”, “challenged” or “failed.”¹ Year after year, the Chaos Report results indicate that the majority of IT projects surveyed by the Standish Group are assessed as “challenged” or “failed” and only a relatively small percentage are considered to have “succeeded.” In 2008, for example, the percentage of unqualified project successes was 32%; failures (defined as…
