New Year Greetings !

EYES ON THE SHORE
=================

Florence Chadwick learned the importance of keeping a goal in mind onJuly 4, 1952. She waded into the Pacific Ocean off Catalina Islandand began swimming toward the California coast 26 miles away. The daywas cold and her attendants drove off sharks throughout the journey.Florence had already swum the English Channel twice and, if she couldfinish today, she would be the first woman to have swum both. Butafter fifteen hours in the water, for the first and only time in herlong-distance swimming career, she gave up and climbed into theescort boat. Others had urged her on, but in the fog they could nottell her how near she was to the coast. She later learned that shewas less than half a mile from shore.When asked by a reporter why she gave up, Florence replied: "It wasthe fog. If I could have seen land, I could have finished. But whenyou can't see your goal, you lose all sense of progress and you beginto give up."On a warm, sunny day two months later Florence Chadwick swam theCatalina Channel, handily beating the men's record. Only when shekept her eyes on the shore did she eventually arrive there.Keeping that goal constantly in sight will get you where you want togo.

Fish for life !

This simple and effective book, is a very practical guide to convert the workplace into a more vibrant and enjoyable place. Let me try to recollect the basics of this book.

1) Work places can have lot of ‘toxic energy dumps’. Meaning negative energy (gossip, back biting, frowning, complaining, blaming etc….).

2) Choose your attitude. There is always a choice about the way you do your work, even if there is not a choice about the work itself. Do not allow the surroundings to determine your attitude at the work place (can be your days as well). You choose your attitude. Choose the attitude of positivity. Every day morning, tell yourself that “I am going to enjoy this day by doing the best I can”.

3) Play. Play your work. Make it fun filled, and enjoy it to the core.

4) Make their day. Include others into the play. While making your day memorable, help others to make their days also memorable.

5) Be present. Focus on the ‘NOW’. Always live in the present, and look for opportunities to play and make their days memorable.

Authors : Stephen C Lundin, Harry Paul and John Christensen

Congratulations Shuaib PMP

Hi All,

I have passed the PMP exam yesterday and want to share my experience with you.
The exam didn’t have many calculation questions as I had thought.
Altogether there were probably four or five to do with earned value
techniques like CV, SV, CPI, BAC, SPI. Some formulas to note:

SPI = EV / PV
ETC = BAC – EV
EAC = BAC / CPI
EAC = AC + ETC
EAC = AC + BAC – EV
% COMPLETE = EV / BAC x 100

I’d suggest you thoroughly go through the inputs, outputs and
tools/techniques for each of the nine knowledge areas as listed in the
PMBOK. I got several such questions from the Integration,Scope and
Quality management topics.

Also, several questions related to the Professional Responsibility
topic as well.

My exam prep included going through the PMBOK(3rd Ed.), PM Distilled
Notes, practicing the questions on ClassTube and also from couple
other sites found after ‘Googling’.

I wish you all the very best and look forward to hear your experience.

Cheers,
Shuaib

Tips on PMP certification by Pratap K Sahoo PMP

Dear All/Team, Dear Abby/Chinmay,
Thanks to all for congratulating me.

Yes , of-course ! It's my pleasure to share my success.I think following things can be the better way of passing the PMP exam in first Attempt.(I cleared on Nov-6th, with total exp of 4.7 year)
Priority No1:Whether or not a candidate is into project management its better to study from:
1) Start preparing Question / Answer. Try to attempt all available Questions/ Answer.(This will give a general idea).2) Try to visualise (no need to remember all, if possible then its good) all Input/Output of each Process Group,and its tool & technology...
2) Remember all Calculations / Formula, e.g. EV,PV,AC,CPI,SPI,BAC, ETC,EAC,VAC ,BCR ,BCWS,BCWP,its very easy , just remember.(I got more questions on this approx (15/20)4) Go for simulation software (any) just to acquaint yourself with the pattern ,also give you a strength for sitting constantly 4 hr in Exam.
Priority No2:
5) PMBOK Guide atleast twice, with remembering 5 KA, 9 PG.(no need to read all , bcz few are reapeated like I/O , tools & techniques.6) Study Material Abby/ Rita Mulcahy PMP Text book.


Imp questions: i) What happen if (CPI +ve,,SPI -ve) / (Both -ve )/ (Both +ve) / (CPI -ve,,SPI +ve). ii) No of communication channel , for n number of team members. iii) What are the type of Handling Conflicts. iv) Selection of a project , ireespetvive of IRR,BCR,NPV. v) Maslow Hierrachy/Herzberg Thery(Theory X/Y)/Douglas Mc-Gregor Thery. vi) Type of Management Style(6 types, e.g autocratic/leissez faire/democratic etc). vii) Conflict Intensity . highest --> Lowest (e.g Schedule , Priorities, then Manpower , .... at last Cost) viii) Five interpersonal Influences of a successfull PM.(e.g Legitimate,Reward,Penalty , Exper, Referrent) ix) Forms of communications. x) Try to understand Professional code conduct & responsiblity( its different from real Life)
Since all questions are situation based, we have to have enough understanding of issues.
Hope this might be usefull for you.I believe the plan to study should come from ones Job Profile, time availability, Liking , and Own way of remembering,reading habit.
Please let me know for further info , for this exam, at any time, i am available to answer you!

Collabteam - New features

1) The home page is made simpler. The central theme is log in and signup. This is deliberately done to help the real user of collabteam (simple and faster).

2) Implemented the sprint velocity calculation feature. This feature helps the team to;

a) Continuously understand it’s capability by analysing the sprint velocity (planned story points / completed story points). The planned story points are frozen while activating the sprint, where as the actual story points are calculated by adding up the completed story points at the end of the sprint. This helps the team to really analyse how much they are able to complete against committed features for the sprint. The key benefit - continuous improvement (the gradually learns to deliver what they committed). This is key to improving productivity of the team.

b) Sprint velocity calculations are implemented under the ’sprint wall’

Some useful tips from Ashraf PMP

Dear All,
Thank you so much for congratulating me and i wish all the best in your life. Below is my experience that i would like to share with you, i hope you will find them usefull:
- After the class, i went through the course material and the prestenation.
- I focused on practicing the questions as much as i could.
- Here are some usefull formulas that you might need:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EV = BAC * (work completed/total work required)
PV = BAC * (time passed/ total scheduled time)
EAC = BAC/CPI
standard deviation = (Pessimistic - Optimistic) / 2
stright line deperciation = (purchase value - salvage price)/time period
total contract cost (cost plus incentive fee) = finished cost + profit margin + (0.20 * under budget amount)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- My exam was at 8:30 am so my mind was fresh.
- I had a big breakfast, strong coffee and 1 vitamin tablet.
- elmintaing the wrong answers helped me a lot.
- As mentioned by Mr. Abarchan in the course material, don't ignore topics like professional responsiblity and human resources management.

I look forward to hearing your success stories in the near future,

Good luck..
Bye
Ashraf

Fun and Work

Greetings from Bangalore.....

I am sitting in the conference room of Chancery hotel, amidst a bunch of brilliant youngsters from HP, mastering the project management skills. For a change, this three day workshop is designed around hands on exercises only and all of us are really enjoying it. In this training I have borrowed some concepts from SCRUM. The entire team is really developing a deliverable within 45 minutes, and time is non negotiable. The result is very positive. Just the introduction of a tight non negotiable target and the freedom to execute alone improves productivity.

Implement tight deadlines, freedom to choose and execute work, write the acceptance criteria first, introduce daily stand up meeting... these alone improves teaming and productivity.

Give it a try...

Are you a project manager and a smoker?


Smoking is prohibited from Oct 2nd onwards in all public places of India. If you are caught while smoking, the fine is Rs.200. Why?. Last year 900,000 Indians died due to diseases from smoking. I personally see this as a great opportunity for all smokers to quit smoking. If you are a project manager in India, you are violating the professional responsibility of the project manager (violating the rules of the country, not being socially responsible), if you violate this rule. So quit smoking.

Are you interrupted by unwanted telephone calls? - India centric

    Bottlenecks for knowledge sharing within agile teams (India centric)

    Performers Vs Non performers 

    Whenever I conduct the SCRUM workshops within India, one regular 
    question I have to address consistently is about 'What to do with non- 
    performers within the team?'. For me, the whole corporate system or as 
    a country itself, everything is tuned to protect the weak. Thanks to 
    the democrats and the communists. The entire system is built around 
    protecting the weak. Hence I am able to empathize with the project 
    managers when he is more worried about the non performers in the team 
    rather than the performers. We must understand the fact that SCRUM 
    teams must comprise of performers (mentally and physically fit). 
    Marcus Buckingham in his book 'First break all rules' says very 
    clearly that the best of the managers worldwide are biased towards 
    performers and in fact they spend more time with the performers rather 
    than non-performers. It does not mean that non-performers must be 
    ignored. They must get the support and the consideration they deserve, 
    and it must not be at the expense of performers. Let us all admit the 
    fact that corporate life is all about capitalism and capitalists not 
    socialism. 

    Individualists Vs Team players 

    Since most of the management wisdom within India is borrowed from the 
    west, 'Team work is always promoted'. An Indian Psyche is always 
    'Individualistic' while whatever is promoted within the corporates is 
    'Team work'. So every Indian acts like a team player to gain 
    acceptance, while actually he is not. In India, even to get a seat in 
    a bus, we have to struggle, rather we have to compete. Naturally we 
    are tuned to compete with others, where as the organizational cultures 
    within India are blind copies from the west, which promotes team work. 
    What must be really promoted within teams in India is 'Team work of 
    the Individually competent'. First of all everyone has to prove their 
    mettle individually, and after that we can talk about team work. 

    Parenting attitude of the managers 

    Most of the Indians like to go to beaches, and at the same time 
    majority of the Indians do not swim in the sea. Thanks to the highly 
    protective parenting prevailing within India. The highly protective 
    parent do not allow the kid to experiment, rather they are driven 
    through the least risky- proven paths. This leads to lack of 
    innovation, poor risk taking and underdevelopment of potential and 
    skills. Once these kids graduate as managers, they also start 
    exhibiting the 'parental traits' while managing the teams, leading to 
    under development of skill sets. Actually they are damaging the teams 
    and at the same time they believe that they are building the teams. 
    This is very dangerous. 

    These are some of the burning points coming to my mind while thinking 
    of the cultural issues in agile teams within India. India is the 
    country where the maximum lines of software code is written, and at 
    the same time not many killer products have come from India ... may be 
    these could be some of the real root causes.
