I recently stumbled upon the “Project Management Declaration of Interdependence” (PMDOI) while reading Jochen Krebs book “Agile Portfolio Management”.
I found a lot of value in the PMDOI and I would like to re-print it here for your benefit.
“Agile and adaptive approaches for linking people, projects and value
We are a community of project leaders that are highly successful at delivering results. To achieve these results:
We increase return on investment by making continuous flow of value our focus.
We deliver reliable results by engaging customers in frequent interactions and shared ownership.
We expect uncertainty and manage for it through iterations, anticipation, and adaptation.
We unleash creativity and innovation by recognizing that individuals are the ultimate source of value, and creating an environment where they can make a difference.
We boost performance through group accountability for results and shared responsibility for team effectiveness.
We improve effectiveness and reliability through situationally specific strategies, processes and practices.”
