The following article is a sample from the full BVOP™ Ultimate Guide and is part of the preparation for the BVOP™'s modern Agile Project Management Certification Program.
Specific activities, processes, and practices may be needed at different stages of the project, and their efficiency may vary. The Business Value-Oriented Project Management (BVOPM) office observes and optimizes work, processes, practices, interactions.
Observing and analyzing the efficiency of:
- Work progress
- Work status
- Management practices
- Design, development or implementation practices
- Validation, approval or test practices
- Communications and interactions
If a nonoptimal work, process, practice, or interaction is observed, the BVOPM and Business Value-Oriented Program Management (BVOPGM) offices optimize its efficiency to avoid waste and to improve weak links.
The optimization may include:
- Modifying teams
- Modifying management practices
- Providing tools, databases or software
- Adding formal processes or suspension of such
- Controlling interactions
Optimizations should be implemented carefully only after repeated observation of inefficient factors.
