Luca describes the Visible Planning methodology that allows a programme or an organisation to overcome some of the  typical issues in managing projects.

In this interview Luca exposes the basic principles of Visible Planning and the 3 dimensions important such as governance, knowledge and behaviour and explains why people are important for this methodology.

Traditional Project Management and tools usually do not take into account organizational aspects and the impact on people, who often work with incomplete information, unclear and not shared objectives, low awareness of one’s own work impact.
In this scenario JMAC developed an innovative method of project management called Knowledge Innovation (KI), in Europe better known as Visible Planning®, especially used for the government of product innovation projects.

The Visible Planning® is very effective to increase the capacity to manage intangible assets like technical skills, relationships, individual and team behavior, culture. It’s a real organizational development program working on communication mechanisms and knowledge management.

The fundamental principles behind are:

  •  anticipation and front loading;
  •  “dual axes management” (projects and business areas);
  • visualization and simplicity
  • horizontal and vertical “pull” communication;
  • proactive participation and sharing;
  • structured teamwork and empowerment of team members;
