Most organizations simplify their implementation of methodologies. The quantity of knowledge in a given methodology is greater than its applied usefulness, so much of the methodology remains, probably very safely, as shelfware. In other more malignant cases where the leaders wish to see more rigor from their staff, the methodology can become overburdening. In statistical project management (SPM), we simplify the project management approach by eliminating many concepts that the dominant project management methodologies consider central. While I caution you to err to the side of adopting a lighter methodology rather than a thicker one, that choice is a local one and yours to make. The SPM ontology is presented in this Executive Update provides you with options.
