All Methodologies include critical outputs that line up with the similar phase of the project lifecycle.
A phase is a distinct division between types of work. A milestone is a significant deliverable point, several of which may occur within a phase. Each milestone requires a Tollgate/Check Point. A tollgate is a standardized control point where the project phase is reviewed/audited and approved/denied before continuing to the next phase.
The Project Manager working with the Sponsor and Project Team will determine the best methodology for a project.
7 Step: It is an improvement methodology used to continuously identify and improve functional processes and functions. Intuitive and practical project management for operational enhancements.
Application/System Implementation: It is a methodology using proven step by step approach to successfully implement the Application and System changes.
DMAIC: DMAIC is the problem-solving approach that drives Lean Six Sigma. It's a five-phase method—Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control—for improving existing process problems with unknown causes.
DMADV: DMADV is a framework that focuses primarily on the development of a new service, product or process. 5-phase approach Define, Measure, Analyze, Design and Verify is especially useful when implementing new strategies and initiatives.
JDI: "Just Do It" is an approach to lead the projects as simply and quickly as possible without using a formal approach.
Kaizen: It is a methodology that has a specific goal or set of goals for a process area that needs improvement. It involves breaking down a process, removing any unnecessary elements, and then putting it back together in a new and improved way.
Process Transition: It is a methodology of migrating knowledge, systems, and operating capabilities between functions, departments, and organizations, to achieve seamless transition phases.
