1.
Out: Adhering to a Single Methodology
In: Hybrid Frameworks

“PMs must tailor their approach and use a combination of Lean Six Sigma, ITIL and some flavor of Agile or Waterfall to ensure that the deliverables are met and conform to the organization’s operational and business requirements.”
– Robert Kelly, PMP, managing director of Kelly Project Solutions

2.
Out: Extreme End-to-End Planning
In: Short Term Planning

“A better approach is to hyper-focus on the next 10 days. And to concentrate on no more than the next 30 to 45 days when planning ahead.”
– Robert Kelly, PMP, managing director of Kelly Project Solutions

3.
Out: Zeroing In on Scope Management
In: Consultative Value Creation

Being able to express ideas in clear and non-technical terms, and define the business impact of solutions created through collaborative efforts with stakeholders, have become must-have competencies for Project Managers. In other words, technical jargon and process speak are out, business acumen and marketing skills are in.

4.
Out: Task Mastership
In: Leading and Motivating

“Project Managers have to be more than keepers of the schedule. In order to be effective, they need to put the right people in the right jobs and give them the resources, support and mentorship to advance their careers and succeed.”
– Joseph Launi, President of Project Management Experts

5.
Out: Tools Before Process
In: Process Before Tools

“Prioritizing tools over process is like putting the cart before the horse. Plus, your reputation as a PM may suffer when stakeholders wonder why the tool you’re using isn’t working, when the real problem is that the tool has disrupted your team’s workflow and processes.”
– Joseph Launi, President of Project Management Experts
