People or Process, Which Has a Greater Effect on Project Success

Process drives our lives. It provides the comfort of consistency, accuracy, and conformance. Add people, however—people with personality, prejudice, and protest—and processes fall short. To deal with the realities of business, we need a toolbox of techniques for managing and leading people while balancing the competing interests of stakeholders who simply want consistently successful results. This seminar starts by looking at the lynch pin of business—process—why it is important, when it is an appropriate solution, and how its overuse generates failure. It provides insight into some of the quirks inherent in people by using estimation processes to expose our personal biases that defeat process. The presentation culminates with a lesson and discussion on leading and incentivizing people as a replacement for layering on process, which only increase bureaucracy.
