Adaptive Project Framework Introduction The nature of the organization projects has drastically changed. Many organization projects are characterized by numerous uncertainties. Often, most of these projects have clear goals but the means for realizing these goals are not clearly defined.
Thus, organizations have little success in trying to manage these projects using the traditional approach. APF is a project management approach that integrates the traditional project management approach with extreme approaches of managing projects. APF approach to project management is designed to address the challenges brought about by the uncertainties within the project environment.
Uncertainties within the project environment imply that the means and techniques for realizing the goals of the projects are not clearly defined. The APF approach allows the organization to make frequent changes to projects tasks in order to arrive to the most suitable solution. Changing Nature of Project The current organizational environment has become extremely dynamic.
Markets forces such as; demand, supply, prices and consumer tastes change within a small duration of time Wysocki, New technologies are also making their way into the market driving out preexisting technologies. The political, social, and economic environments also exhibit fluctuations.
This has introduced a lot of uncertainties into the operations of the business. These uncertainties have made the traditional method of project management obsolete. The traditional project management approach focused on creating elaborate plans on how projects are conducted.
The time, cost and resources, are estimated before the project commences Wysocki, However, the element of uncertainty introduced a challenge in the implementation of the tradition approach of managing projects.
This is why a new approach for managing projects is needed. We recommend the adoption of the Adaptive Project Framework Approach.
Principles Adaptive Project Framework The adaptive project framework takes the life cycle management approach. This management approach divides projects into cycles and treats each cycle a distinct project Wysocki, Each cycle has four stages; scoping, planning, launching and monitoring stages.
In the adaptive project framework, the project manager plans for the succeeding cycle based on the finding of the concluded cycles. The project manager conducts extensive review of concluded cycles in order to develop precise plans for the next cycle.
One of the fundamental principles of the APF approach is variation of the project scope. One of the principles of APF is that it adopts a mindset that thrives of change rather than a mindset that avoid change Wysocki, Adaptive management (AM), also known as adaptive resource management (ARM) or adaptive environmental assessment and management (AEAM), is a structured, iterative process of robust decision making in the face of uncertainty, with an aim to reducing uncertainty over time via system monitoring.
It was built as part of recent client engagements and is not fully baked as of this writing. You may read more about it in the 3 rd edition of my recently released book Effective Project Management: Traditional, Adaptive, Extreme.

Alan Deutschman's axiom "change or die" was never truer than it is in today's project-management environment. Robert K. Wysocki discusses the Adaptive Project Framework and why it needs to replace traditional project management.
