In this episode, we're taking an insightful journey into the world of project management standards. As you might have experienced, the recent shift of the ANSI standard from a process-based to a principles-based model has left a gap in practical project management guidance. Thankfully, the ISO 21502 standard is here to fill that void, albeit, at just 42 pages, it could use a little more depth. Enter 'Inside the BlackBox Project Management,' an enlightening resource by Bill Dannenmaier that complements the ISO standard with real-world project management experience. Bill joins us today to discuss key principles, real-world scenarios, the ISO 21502 standard, pre-project planning, earned schedule, and much more.
Bill's insights extend beyond the basic fundamentals of project management. We dive into specific areas like pre-project planning, its impact on risk management, and predictive vs adaptive project management. A particular highlight is Bill's exploration of the 'Earned Schedule' concept. We also touch upon industry-specific approaches to Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) management and discuss intriguing examples from his book. As we wrap up the interview, we take a thoughtful look at the project closure phase, and Bill shares insights on addressing common mistakes, handling transition periods, and the importance of closure compared to project initiation.
