Simple Project Management Methodology is simple approach for managing the projects less than 5 million worth in the budget. There are many project management frameworks & methodologies in the industry and majority of these are very process intensive. Problem with this is when the project manager & project team are well focused on the process they generally lose focus to manage the important tasks for project. In the mean time, what lots of PMO’s fail to realize is this is not the process, which delivers the project, instead, it is a completion of the tasks & keeping team focused. It will not be noticeable if you are completing each step successfully.

I have also witnessed many projects stall & fail, again and again, as project team was very much focused on the discovery, process, and methodology in place of delivery. Thus, what is delivery? This is a standard where all the projects & project managers are been judged. Thus, focusing on the intangibles will, certainly, result in the failure. Thus, do I think all methodologies are bad or wrong? Not at all. I think that anything in the moderation has its own place.
