Decisions making in Project Management

The following article is part of the self-preparation for the modern BVOP® Project Management Certification program.

All organizational offices make decisions, and the decision-making process requires different competencies and skills. Decisions need to be made regularly, and their adequacy and speed are essential.

    Typical topics requiring decisions may include:

    • Prioritizing work
    • Allocating resources
    • Accepting or rejecting outcomes
    • Changing standards or processes
    • Suspending activities
    • Starting new initiatives

    The Business Value-Oriented Project Management (BVOPM) office makes decisions based on data, expertise, urgency, resources, observations, and analysis.

    Comments from the BVOP™ community on “Decisions making”

    Anastasiya Vodianova

    Decision making is one of the most difficult tasks for a project manager. Usually, in real situations, nobody helps in making cooperative and adequate decisions. And everyone expects the project manager to make decisions instead of all and on all important and urgent topics.

    The good thing is that BVOP creates rules, principles and gives ideas on how to make decisions a little easier. Remember that decisions are taken collectively with the support of other departments, managers and project participants who have knowledge and experience. The calmness of the project management role is provided to some extent.

    For me, the most important decisions are prioritizing work, implementing new processes and ending unnecessary processes. These are the areas where you can lose or gain a lot of business value for the product or the whole organization.
