To complete the thought from the end of the video, Hewlett-Packard did an evaluation of our division’s project management practices, and scored us at 4.2 out of 5, which is presumably pretty good. My own experience, and that of many of the managers, was that a lot of things were done pretty well, but we consistently ran into problems in the same places for the same reasons. Over the ensuing thirty years I’ve had impressions of where the problems were, but I didn’t have the language or context to describe them clearly. Once I developed my framework for doing business analysis, I had a much clearer understanding of what the problems were, why things broke down, and how they could have been improved, much to the benefit of the entire operation.
