    Diving into PM vs. TM debate

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    From a viewpoint of the scope of these two concepts, the approach of tactical management extends further in terms of coping with a bigger environment and working towards the entire scope of other managerial functions including the project management. 

    In my understanding while reading the PMBOK, the project is only one part of the entire company and the portfolio of projects, functions and needs for improvement. I love the approach of having to look at most of the process in a company as projects. Even though tactical management might have an extended reach, it is the project management that needs to be applied in the process of implementation of tactical management as well. In my view, project management is an essential part of every process in the company, and it is placed under the portfolio management. 

    In my further explorations, I will be looking at the possibility to place tactical management under the portfolio management as well, and consider it as a program that needs to be applied in order to do the projects and programs the right way.

    Project Management vs. Tactical Management

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    In this diagram given in the book "Tactical Management in Complexity" it is shown how much the Tactical management and the Project management are connected. This is an inspiration for me to research further, to go deeper into the field of project management and to find the similarities and differences between Tactical Management and Project Management.

    More about DENICA Method

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    DENICA, in my opinion is all about successful leadership. It is a method to bring out the elements in the company that don't work as they suppose to, and build them up with new solutions and approaches. DENICA brings a fresh air into the business thinking, making our approach to issues more intuitive, filled with empathy and success oriented.

    Tactics vs. Strategy

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    We all know that resources are limited. Our success comes from achieving the best with the limited resources we have to use, but on the way, to keep up with the company culture and be oriented to having dedicated, motivated and trustworthy people to work with in the company. This is what we need to achieve as company, as tactical managers, as leaders and as a business ecosystem in general.

    DENICA Method

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    In the book "Tactical Management in Complexity" the author delivers the DENICA method as a star that leads the business to finding solutions and innovative approaches, implementing all the scientific findings into the practical daily work of the companies. It is obvious that in all of the studies on companies in the book, this method has brought up useful conclusions for improving their work and advancing the functionality of their business system.

    'What' and 'How' as important tools

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    When the main goal, the why, is well incorporated into the company, the follow up concentrates on the what and how. In the segment given below, it is elaborated how in practice companies need to look at the working process. If we have a system, we have to look at everything that affects it, how this influences the system and what can we expect. Knowing what is being managed defines in a great extent the role of the manager and brings out the important elements that need to be taken in consideration when we analyse the context in which we work.

    The book "Tactical Management in Complexity" brings to the reader the DENICA method. This method goes one step forward and incorporates the context and the working principles in a way that it provides a more organised system by using primarily roles, responsibilities and visualisation as tools to detect the needs, illustrate issues and solutions, and to act upon the findings.

    Think about the context

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    This definition of tactical management highly relates to the main definition of project management. In this definition, the context is taken in consideration as well. This element adds up to the quality of planning, organising, implementation and monitoring, as well as takes in consideration all of the circumstances that can influence the working process and the certain project that we work on.

    Accountability

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    In this segment of the book "Tactical Management in Complexity" the feedback from the End-user 11 refers to a very important element of the entire work of each company, the accountability of every owner of a role in the company. When employees are able to do excellent work and give their best knowledge to each task they complete, the working processes are based on a high level of trust. When the company manages to build the trustworthy relationships, even when wrong, employees are able to share the issues they are faced with, as well as they are able to ask for help from the team. This, I believe, is the core of the solution oriented and progress oriented working in every company.

    Sense- Interpret- Decide- Act

    by Admin Ana Dajovska -

    "Tactical Management in Complexity" teaches us a valuable lesson to combine the goal, the purpose and take in consideration all of the influence factors. Having in mind these elements, on top of our effort is to adapt to the circumstances. Tactical management, according to my opinion, is not just a science that needs to be tested in practice, it is also a model that we use to advance the work of the company according to its needs, not just to follow the certain given scheme, but to test and learn during the entire working process and to continue to find solutions. Tactical management is about being solution and progress oriented, instead of being concentrated on detecting problems.
