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 may include 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 not optimal work, progress, status, practice or interaction is observed, the BVOPM and Business Value Oriented Program Management (BVOPGM) offices optimize its efficiency to avoid waste and to improve bottlenecks.
The optimization may include:
- Modifying teams
- Modifying management practices
- Providing tools, databases or software
- Adding formal processes or suspension of such
- Controlling interactions
Optimizations need to be implemented carefully only if patterns are observed periodically.
