Is the Future of Project Management #noprojects?

Presented by: Evan Leybourn, Shane Hastie


Take a moment to consider a controversial idea. An end to IT projects, project management & project managers. There is one simple reason why the entire project process is flawed from the start. If you need to run a project, youve already failed.

By definition, an IT project is a temporary structure to govern and deliver a complex change (such as a new product or platform) into an organisation. However, to be truly competitive, an organisation needs to be able to deliver a continuous stream of change. Managed properly, this negates the need for a project and the associated cost overheads.

This is fundamentally what #noprojects is. The approach, structure, tactics and techniques available to successfully deliver continuous change. At its core, #noprojects is predicated on the alignment of activities to outcomes, measured by value, constrained by guiding principles and supported by continuous delivery technologies.

This presentation will introduce you to #noprojects. You will learn how to define an outcome and create an Outcome Profile.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to structure "projects", teams and divisions around continuous value delivery
  • How to define outcomes (rather than outputs) and use this as the key organisational driver of work
