Man, the “Centre of the Universe”

Man always measured his environment by his standards.
FOTIQ in relation to LEAN • FOTIQ as acronym for “FINANCE, ORGANIZATION, TIME, INFORMATION, QUALITY”. • FOTIQ represent the key measures for man’s Success. • FOTIQ in other words stands for “DNA of human Success”. In every Process there is a moment where Project elements are measured in terms of FOTIQ. LEAN: the optimization function of Project elements with FOTIQ as “Success element”
“Every Project is made out of Accommodation, Man, Material, Means and Regulation.” “LEAN in Project Management is the Optimization of these parts in relation FOTIQ elements.”

Lean: Well balanced production methods
A balanced investment of energy to produce "Value" for the end customer.
• Value: Any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for.
• Implementation: Focus on … - getting the right things done - to the right place - at the right time - in the right quantity . While minimizing waste and being flexible and able to change. The "right“ keywords: Other keywords: Quality, Quantity, Time, Place, Energy Investment Minimize, Flexible, Change
“The square root of two Quarter Pounders (w/) Cheese.”

EOQ=√(2QP/C)
where Q = Quantity in annual units P = Placing an order cost C = Carry costs

LEAN, the Optimization Function for Success with Project Management
Projects all to often exceed the budget. The main cause for exceeding the budget is the minimal attention for LEAN implementation of the project.

Wrong implementation or minimal to no optimization of project elements can lead to increasing costs of a project. You have a hunch these elements exist.
Of course project management has unforeseen costs, and in majority these are result of a wrong balance between the various project elements and FOTIQ.

It is time to optimize your project and look at it with LEAN in mind. “Every Project is made out of Accommodation, Man, Material, Means and Regulation.” “LEAN in Project Management is the Optimization of these parts in relation FOTIQ elements.”

FOTIQ: Balance between Content and Context > The genes of this DNA
FOTIQ is like Tai Chi, the balance between Black and White. Both grow and shrink in relation to each other and none will ever be nullified. CONTENT and CONTEXT are like the Black and the White. CONTENT resembles • How and When • “Project” • Practical
CONTEXT resembles • What, Where and the “Not” • “Process” • Theoretical, hypothetical When it is time to optimize your FOTIQ, you always will look at it with CONTENT and CONTEXT in mind. “Every Project is made out of Accommodation, Man, Material, Means and Regulation.” “LEAN in Project Management is the Optimization of these parts in relation FOTIQ elements.”
