Adaptive Project Management

Adaptive project managing is a structured, systematic process that allows for gradual improvement in your decision-making and practices by learning from the outcomes of previous decisions. Project management adapts to the business needs, resulting in increased business value. The Adaptive Project Framework (APF), which can be used in a variety of ways, allows for the adjustment of scope at each iteration. Robert K. Wysocki is the author of Adaptive Project Framework. He says that APF is more about creating a recipe rather than following one. He also explained that project managers are responsible for the approach. They need to understand the situation and adjust their methods and approach accordingly. Adaptive Framework’s main characteristics are: Thrive on Change

Client driven
APF is different from other methodologies in that it places the client at the center of decision making for the next phase of the project. The client can also change the direction of the project. Project Management Frameworks and Methodologies

Traditional projects have a structure and a strategy that is static. Project managers assign tasks and keep the team under control. The rapid technological advancements and the ever-increasing market demands have made project management more complex. Strategy – It became more dynamic and hard to predict.
Work – The development of new technologies has accelerated the pace of work
People – They work together and strive to create a true team culture
All these changes make it clear that software development projects change as they go. Traditional project management is futile. Wysocki uses Wysocki’s analogy of a chef or cook to explain the differences between adaptive and traditional project management. A cook may follow a recipe exactly, but a chef has the knowledge and experience to create it. He also has the ability to adapt to any unexpected circumstances. How did APM get its start?
C.S. Walters and Holling were ecologists in the 1970’s. Holling and Carl J. Walters studied how to predict fish stocks. These factors are not easily controlled. They developed adaptive project management, which is based on “learning by doing”. APM is now a standard part of project management methods. Many large corporations and environmental organizations use it for large-scale projects. It is used on some the most important environmental engineering projects (such as Everglades National Park and Grand Canyon National Park). How does APF work
The following are examples of adaptive project management processes: Planning, execution, monitoring and control. You can use the information you get from one iteration to help you plan for the next. This will help you reduce all uncertainties. Active Active Adaptive Management allows you to choose the best management strategy through learning from exp
