At the 2014 TOCICO conference in Baltimore in early June, I gave a talk entitled “The Project Manifesto: Explaining TOC through Values.” It was well received and provoked some worthwhile discussions, I’ll write further posts on the subject matter. Sanjeev Gupta suggested a Project Manifesto web site, along the same lines as the Agile Manifesto site. It was a great idea, so we made an announcement at the conference, enlisted a number of initial signatories, and created the site at projectmanifesto.org. We want it to be non-denominational: those who sign up are expressing support for the values, but in doing so they’re not expressing support for any particular methodology or scheduling approach — or for the Project Manifesto book. The site was just opened for business. Be sure to check it out, add your name, and pass it on to your colleagues!
