Surviving in a Matrix: Simple Techniques for Effective Project Management in a Matrix Organization




You love projects.  You love good project management.  And you love the exhilaration of power teams and project success.  BUT you are struck in a matrix?  Not the matrix of the movie.  But the matrix of a strong line organization where projects have all but a miserable existence.  The line organization is dominating, politics is prevalent, people care more about securing their own posts, maintaining the status quo and thus focus on their daily tasks, not willing to look outside their box or even beyond their own desk.  Projects?!  Gee, hell no!  Those are activities where you have to work with people from other departments, maybe even in cross-functional teams.  But, what do those folks know about my area of expertise.  Nothing!  Hence, it is better to keep things as they are.

Does this sound familiar? Or, have you ever experienced or heard of such an organization and setting? – If so, continue reading.

Surviving in a Matrix: Simple Techniques for Effective Project Management in a Matrix Organization from Thomas Juli

On Thursday, 2 October 2014 from 11:30 AM – 1 PM EST I gave a free webinar for the IT Metrics and Productivity Institute.  The webinar is entitled “Surviving in a Matrix: Simple Techniques for Effective Project Management in a Matrix Organization”.  In this webinar I introduce a simple, yet very pragmatic approach to structure, plan and set-up a project in a matrix organization with strong line management and a weak project culture. I explain the need and value for developing a compelling project motivation, vision and objectives. I outline how to engage stakeholders in building a work package structure, outlining a project organization, implementing an early warning system for plan deviations, establishing risk analysis and management. Last but not least, I elaborate on how to cultivate continuous learning in a matrix organization.
Don’t stay stuck in your matrix.  Learn how to survive in your matrix, introduce effective project management techniques and become a master of your own project success.

A wide-angle lense for your project efforts


gripWhile some of my peers are still thriving for planning tools and methodologies to strengthen their grip on projects, others offer ten keys to a happier living and pursuing a great dream. It’s the summary of this month’s PMI Netherlands Chapter’s 3rd Summit on the thin line between project success and project failure. Discrete task management as a 20th Century invention, cultivated from the times of Frederick Winslow Taylor‘s book The Principles of Scientific Management to David Allen‘s Getting Things Done. Resemblance with the classic Divide & Rule strategy elements is surprising:

  • creating or encouraging divisions among the subjects to prevent alliances that could challenge the sovereign
  • aiding and promoting those who are willing to cooperate with the sovereign
  • fostering distrust and enmity between local rulers
  • encouraging meaningless expenditures that reduce the capability for political and military spending

Proven project success factors however are e.g. trust, collaboration, communication, and contribution to a greater cause. Research led Daniel Pink to rethink Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (I bet you know this pyramid) and come up with 21st Century drivers for our professional and personal motivation:

  1. Autonomy – the desire to direct our own lives.
  2. Mastery — the urge to get better and better at something that matters.
  3. Purpose — the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.

sagrada familiaConnecting dots, zooming out of discrete tasks to larger structures up to the organization, value chain or customer journey shows a wide-angled view:

  • Working on brick by boring brick appears to the final stage of the Sagrada Família in Barcelona.
  • A piece of Java code skips a mouse click in an application form, raising chances a customer will continue buying an insurance policy.
  • Implementing legislation in processes, systems and information products avoids penalties and saves cash for investments.
  • A proper configuration of a server keeps hackers out and the business focused on their core business.

A monthly review of your risk log or skipping the benefits section in a mandatory business case for a ‘compliance project’ will get a different meaning, once you understand the effects of your efforts. Costs turn into values. System integration enables business sustainability. Daily routines like a stand-up or check-in become an index of project health or happiness of team members. What drives you home? And back to work tomorrow?

A Happy, Happy Conference – PMI NL Summit 2014


I have just returned from a fabulous conference:  the PMI Netherlands Summit 2014 in beautiful Zeist, NL.

It was an honor and great pleasure to open the conference with my own keynote on “Leadership, Happiness and Project Success“.  In my presentation I explained why and how leadership and happiness are the key ingredients to project success.

A lot has been said and written about leadership and how it affects project success.  But ‘happiness’?!  Well, not so much.  This is sad I think for ‘happiness’ brings in the human factor into the equation.  It’s ok to satisfy the customer.  But is it sufficient?  I don’t think so.  If you and your team aim for a happy team and a happy customer it can take your project to a higher level.

Scientific research has shown that our brains work better when they are ‘happy’.  And when our brains are at ‘happy’ that positivity will ripple out to others and can raise productivity.  Hence, whenever you aim to promote happiness in your project you can likely improve performance and productivity.  Not bad, isn’t it?!

So, what is ‘happiness’?  How do you define it?  

Well, not so fast.  I am not sure if you can or actually want to come up with a formal definition of ‘happiness’.  It is personal, subjective in nature.  And yet, (most) people will agree that ‘happiness’ is great and worthwhile striving for.  The 3 P’s – pleasure, purpose, passion – give us a hint what ‘happiness’ entails.  In the context of a project I think that the purpose and passion characteristics of happiness a central.  In other words, you and your team have to have a common understanding of the motivation and vision of the project.  They need to know, support and share it.  Not by force but because they want to – on the project, individual and team levels.

Have a look at my presentation to learn more about it.

Happiness is a choice

At the conclusion of my keynote I invited the audience to take action to create a happier life.  For this purpose I handed out GREAT DREAM postcards.  It lists 10 key to happier living based on a review of the latest scientific research relating to happiness.

Everyone’s path to happiness is different, but the research suggests these Ten Keys consistently tend to have a positive impact on people’s overall happiness and well-being. The first five (GREAT) relate to how we interact with the outside world in our daily activities. The second five (DREAM) come more from inside us and depend on our attitude to life.

GREAT DREAMS postcard image

I want to thank the Action for Happiness movement for providing these postcards at no charge.

Take the Action for Happiness pledge

Giving a keynote on ‘happiness’ is a great experience. It gave me the chance not only to talk about happiness to a large audience but actually make people happy.  What a wonderful and fulfilling opportunity!

Learning more about happiness and how it can help us grow successful projects is one thing.  Applying the principles in our daily lives is another and more powerful thing.  Hence, I am asking you, the reader, to visit the Action for Happiness website, take the Action for Happiness pledge and start living a happier life.

Action for Happiness Pledge
“I will try to create more happiness and less unhappiness in the world around me”

3 Steps from Zombie Projects to WOW Projects


Wikepedia defines Zombies as fictional undead creatures regularly encountered in horror and fantasy themed works. They are typically depicted as mindless, reanimated corpses with a hunger for human flesh, and particularly for human brains in some depictions.

A project is a project is a project?

Who am II wish it were this easy.  The good news is that more and more companies and organizations realize the value of project – and to a lesser extent the need and value of good project management.

I have seen, worked on and led many projects.  The ones most memorable were those projects where things were flowing.  That is, the team worked as a team, performance was outstanding due to synergy effects, quality of deliverables exceeded clients’ expectations and everyone was just happy and proud to be part of the project.  I call such projects WOW projects.  And it this kind of projects I love to work on, build or lead.

Zombie projects may still get the basics of project management right

My strong desire for WOW projects may explain my frustration every time I work on or for “suboptimal” projects that have more or less nothing to do with WOW.  It is not that these projects lack project management fundamentals.  Indeed, often they do cover the basics.  That is:

(1) project objectives were defined (mostly top-down by management),

(2) functional and non-functional requirements were described and documented (more or less),

(3) a project organization was put in place,

(4) a project plan was posted on the walls, and

(5) project management tools available.

So far for the basics.

And yet, there was nothing which resembled the WOW factor even at the lowest level.

What’s wrong!?

Zombie projects lack the soul and spirit of WOW projects

While these projects covered the basics of project management they lacked the “soul” or “spirit” that makes WOW projects tick.  Team morale on such projects is often in the lower ranks.  The quality of deliverables is satisfactory at best.  Long working hours are the norm and this is reflected in errors and delays in deliverables.  Transparency about progress, actual issues and potential risks is mirky and not welcome – because, after all, management wants to hear good news.

Working on such projects can be tiring and energy draining.  It is a job, ok. But no more.

Does this sound familiar?  If so, continue reading.

3 steps to WOW projects

The causes for suboptimal projects are not limited to the lack of leadership or a true team.  It is more than that.  It is an attitude and a principle approach how you build, grow and nurture projects.  So, let’s have a look at what it takes to build the foundation for WOW projects to evolve:

3 steps to wow - picture 1Step 1: Listening and learning

The first step to growing a WOW project is active and intense listening, learning about the needs, motivation and vision of people and the organizations.  It helps sorting out the playing field of the project and how it fits into the larger system of an organization and its people.

Step 2: Developing awareness

Based on the insights of step 1 gather your project team and stakeholders and find out what you truly try to achieve in your project.  This means, find out and agree on the MVP’s of your project, i.e., the motivation, the vision and the project objectives of your project.  Expand this exercise to the MVP’s of individual team members and the team as an organizational unit.

Once you have developed strong MVP’s, work on engagement rules for nurturing collaboration, promoting performance, cultivating learning and ensuring results.

Step 3: Performing and aligning

Now, walk your talk.  Start working, practice, fail and learn from your mistakes.  Make necessary alignments and perform.

WOW projects evolve and are very much alive

3 steps to wow - picture 2Steps 1 -3 may imply that they are sequential.  This is right and wrong.  When you start a project you go through this sequence.  However, aligning always includes listening and learning which is Step 1 of growing a WOW project.  This takes you back to the beginning of the 3-step process.  Insights from each step are integrated in each of the other steps and vice versa.

From this perspective it is more practical to depict the process as a Venn diagram which each circle standing for one of the three steps.  The intersection of these three circles is where the WOW ignites and spreads.

3 steps to wow - picture 3In other words, the combination of listening & learning, developing awareness, performing & aligning spark WOW projects.

As you iterate each of the three steps, border lines blur, it becomes increasingly difficult to depict one step from the other.  One element feeds the others and vice versa.  The iterative learning and growth process of this project become intertwined and infinite.  This is illustrated in the picture on the left.

 

Start growing your WOW project today

Even the longest journey starts with the first step.  On this token, I encourage you and your team to have a closer look at your own project(s).  Follow the three steps described above and start building your own WOW project today.

Need help?  Please contact me.  I help you build WOW projects through customized workshops and trainings.  Workshops can be as short as 2 hours or several days depending on your needs.  Or, if you like, I can accompany your journey over a period of several weeks through coaching and consulting.

How much do you want to invest in your WOW project?


http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs39/i/2008/323/7/1/High_Hopes_II_by_OrchidFeehan.jpgIt was a long wait.  Weeks, no, months.  Then, finally she won the long sought opportunity to work on a mega project.  A project that not only was long in duration but also involved lots of people and stakeholders.  What a challenge!  And what a feat!  So she thought.

She had worked on quite a few projects of virtually all sizes.  The big ones stood out.  For a number of reasons: the duration, the complexity, the team size, the fun and the rewards.  No wonder she was excited when she won the new deal.

This was several weeks ago.  Today, the world looked different.  Motivation  dropped significantly; the energy barrels were emptied, stress levels were constantly high. But why?! What happened? And why was this project different from the previous big projects?

The missing WOW factor

While there can be lots of possible answers, the main reason is that this new project lacked the WOW factor. Yes, it was a big project but without the wow.  “Wow Projects’?  Those are projects Tom Peters described as projects that add value, projects that matter, projects that make a difference, projects that leave a legacy.  And those are projects that bring happiness into our daily work life.  Both on the individual and team level.

Ingredients for a Wow project

A wow project is not created merely by its size or its complexity.  Instead, there a few ingredients for a project to evolve into a wow project.  Let’s have a look at these ingredients:

  1. There is a common MVP, i.e., motivation, vision and project objectives.  Team members and stakeholders alike have a common understanding of the MVP of the project and they support it.
  2. Collaboration is being nurtured.  For this to happen there are clear roles and accountabilities as well as collaboration rules that nourish true team work.
  3. Performance is being promoted.  This means that the environment and the people empower people to perform and show their best.  Performance and interim results are celebrated.
  4. As much as performance is promoted and appreciated, people know that mistakes and setbacks are inevitable.  Indeed, making mistakes are welcome and encouraged as they can provide outstanding learning experiences.  Not for learning by itself but toward a common goal, which brings us to the fifth factor, i.e.,
  5. ensuring results.  However beautiful the strategy may be, occasionally you have to look at results.  And they are delivered and celebrated on an ongoing basis and not just at the end of a project phase.

Necessary investments for a wow project

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0e-_U3Jy2oY/TWDW5sWjFoI/AAAAAAAAACE/pF5iJKIm4AU/s828/Stop%2BPause.pngKnowing the ingredients for a wow project is one thing.  But a wow project still does not fall from heaven.  You have to help build it.  You have to invest into this building exercise.  And there are no guarantees.

You usually have at least two choices when you start or enter a project:

a) run, react and get busy.  Do what’s necessary and what’s being told. Try to meet deadlines and keep you head down.  Believe in the expertise of the others and hope for the best.

b) pause, reflect why you started the project in the first place, why you want to work on it. In other words, make sure that you and your team understand and live the factors for the evolution of a wow project.  This takes time and effort.  It cannot be done in between meetings, divided into smaller chunks spreaded over a period of weeks.

http://b.vimeocdn.com/ts/391/455/391455020_640.jpgIs it hard? It can be. But it always starts with a first step

Coming back to the individual described in the first paragraph of this post.  She realized that this project lacked the ingredients for a wow project.  And this was the beginning to a better project.  She was unhappy but didn’t want to accept it.  Hence, she stood up, gathered like minded team mates around her, talked about her frustration, shared her motivation and vision. Together they changed the situation.  At first, it was only their little sub teams.  From there it spreaded for people noticed that not only their performance and results improved significanlty, team members were also happy, thrilled, excited and highly motivated – without spending endless hours in unproductive meetings, trying to beat deadlines.  They were ahead of the game. And they still are.

What are you waiting for?!  Start building your own wow moment. Today

Leadership doesn’t need tools but principles


Developing my new workshop “Leadership, Happiness and Project Success” I came across the question whether or not there can be tools for developing leadership.  After all, the second part of the preliminary workshop agenda read “Create a strategy with the best tools possible”.  It is a legitimate question and I think easy to answer:  If you ask me if leadership requires tools my response is “No! Leadership requires principles.”  Principles give you guidance and an orientation.  Tools are superficial, they are means to reach a goal but no more.

Remember the saying “A fool with a tool is still a fool”?  Well, this applies to those who are interested in leadership, too.  No, just by applying good and effective tools you do not develop leadership.  Leadership goes deeper, it comes from within, i.e., you have to know where you are coming from, what drives you and where you want to go.

In a project setting I have found the following leadership principles most helpful:

1Build Vision

Sharing a common vision and goals with your team and organization and having the same understanding how to achieve it are key factors for project success.

2Nurture Collaboration

A performing team yields synergy effects; the impossible becomes possible. This is why team building is crucial.

3Promote Performance

Both on the individual and team level. Inspire and ignite team magic.

4Cultivate Learning

Effective leaders are open for receiving and giving feedback. It requires courage to explore new avenues and to make mistakes and to learn from them.

5Ensure Results

Delivering results is both a prerequisite and an outcome of effective leadership.

 

These five principles are not limited to the role of the project manager or project leader. Indeed, you can apply the five principles of effective leadership in any role you fill on a project, whether as the official project sponsor, project manager, team member, external consultant, project auditor, or any other project role.

Practice leadership in your role, and thus contribute to project success

It may be difficult at times. But it is possible. Every journey, regardless of how long it may be, starts with the first step. Take this step and move forward.

The 3 Keys to Happiness & Success

And, what’s Leadership got to do with it?

GUEST BLOG by Roxanne Kaufman Elliott, President of ProLaureate Ltd.

3 keys-resized-600Long ago in an ancient time, humankind was so abusive of the keys to happiness and success that the great elders and wise women of the time decided to take the keys away and hide them where no one could ever find them again.

But where?

The Leader of the Wise Women decided to call a meeting of the Council of Elders to discuss the hiding place. When they were all together she put the question to the group and asked for ideas and suggestions.

One of the more senior elders raised her hand and said, “Oh, Wise Leader, we should take the keys of happiness and success and bury them in the deepest, darkest depths of the Earth. No one would think to look there and if they did, it would be much too difficult to dig down and find them.”

The Wise Leader thought about this for a moment and then said, “thank you, but no, I don’t think they would remain hidden there. Human kind is very resourceful and will find a way to uncover them.”

Another of the council members raised her hand and said, “I know! Let’s hide the keys to happiness and success at the highest peak of the highest mountain in the world, for certainly, THIS is a place no man, woman or child could ever discover!”

But again, the wise leader said, “No, they will climb the mountain – they will find a way – and they will discover the secret.”

The next council member spoke up and said “then let’s bury the secret to happiness and success in the deepest part of the ocean where no one would dare to go – beneath the sea in a great, dark and bottomless cavern where no one would dare to look or attempt to go.”

The Wise Leader thought for a moment longer and then said, “thank you all for these ideas, but humankind is resourceful and I believe they will uncover each of those hiding places. But now I know where we can bury the keys to happiness and success where no one will ever find them. We will bury them deep in the heart of every person who walks the Earth… for surely, no one would think to look for them there.”

You already possess the keys to your happiness and success. The challenge is getting out of your own way long enough to discover them! And then, to actually begin to unlock your potential; to understand what real happiness and success mean to YOU; and then to start creating and setting a plan in motion to be and to have the best of what life has to ofer – on your terms.

“Success is the continual achievement of your own predetermined goals, stabilized by balance and purified by belief.”

compass indexHappiness & Success

You possess more internal ability than you will ever use. The biggest obstacles you face are the limitations you place in your own mind. Individuals are goal seekers by nature and you are at your happiest when you are working toward the accomplishment of goals that are related to your major purpose in life. True success comes from identifying goals in all areas of life that are important to you, and organizing your time and energy so that all these areas are given the right priority at the right time.

Achievement

Achievement has little regard for age, nationality, gender or station in life.

It bestows itself upon those who dare to aim their sights at noble targets, who move forward even though the winds of opposition try to push them back, who realize their purpose is far greater than any obstacle that may appear to stand in their way.

How we lead our lives determines our future and the future of those around us. You have the unlimited potential to reach new heights for yourself and for others to create… new products, new applications, new solutions, new organizations, new ideas, new and better relationships and even a new and better world.

Sounds like a tall order and a lot of work. It is.

But that’s ‘what leadership has to do with it’… it’s all about SELF Leadership and putting forth the effort to be the best we can be. The rewards are incredible and well worth the efort. It’s all about energizing YOU – the real, genuine, brilliant YOU.

So where do you start? You start by discovering the three keys that are already within you…

hand_drawing_a_to_b_400_clr_11972VISION ~ GOALS ~ ACTION

Do you have a personal and professional vision statement? Planning our lives, our careers, our futures, deserve at least as much energy as planning our next vacation. Yet, typically, we spend more time doing the latter than the former. Perhaps its time to create a vision for yourself – your statement of potential and your vision of the future.

What do happiness and success look like to you? Write them both down in great detail, in the first person, in the present tense – as if it is already real. This is your quest – it is your written painting of what the future will look like – what you aspire to become, do, create and achieve – both
personally and professionally. Begin everything with this end in mind, as this is the image by which everything else you do is measured.

Create your goals both short term and long term. Write them down. What do you need to accomplish to move you closer to your vision – today? This week? In a year?

Then, take action to fulfill those goals. Make a plan and work it. Write them down. Know what you need to do to move to the next step and the next and the next. Once you focus on what happiness and success mean to you, you will be on your way to achieving more of what you desire in less time.

“What lies behind us and what lies in front of us, pales in significance when compared to what lies within us.”

stepThe Art of Changing Yourself

“The art of changing yourself requires the substituting of new habits for old. You mold your character and your future by your thoughts and acts. You cannot climb uphill by thinking downhill thoughts. If your world is gloomy and hopeless, it is because you are gloomy and hopeless. You must change your mind to change your world. Make yourself do what needs to be done. Man alone, of all the creatures of this earth, is architect of his destiny.”

From Wilfred A. Peterson and his book, “The Art of Living”.
