Requirements, Projects & Changes
Volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity are becoming important characteristics of management. In this VUCA world companies are frequently confronted with changes. Projects are the basic elements of any change architecture. In order to assure sustainable success, values such as holistic solution, sustainable development, iterative approach, empowerment, etc. are required instead of “silo” thinking, beaurocratic approaches, and very detailed planning. E.g. in order to achieve holistic solutions as results of projects and changes, all relevant dimensions of a company, such as services and markets, the infrastructure, the organization, the personnel, etc. have to be considered. In changing a sustainable business value should be achieved. This is possible by applying an iterative approach. The VUCA world makes it necessary, to define the requirements as well as the objectives of projects and changes iteratively, and to prioritize these periodically.
In a case study the application of the manifest of values, which is the basis for the RGC management approaches, will be presented for managing a change “by projects”.
