The following section explains the main characteristics of The SUKAD CAM2P™ Model:
- It is a methodology (methodological approach) for managing a single project
- The methodology is an essential element of the project management organizational system
- The methodology takes a holistic view of a project; a project life span methodology that covers a project from idea to closure, and beyond
- The methodology emphasizes the whole project and its phases and stages, rather than limit it to specific functions and processes
- It is simplified, practical, and systematic; we must emphasize that “simplified” does not mean simple
- It emphasizes a disciplined approach to Project Management, yet stresses the need for flexibility
- We represent the ‘disciplined approach’ via the distinct stages and stage gates, and represent the ‘flexibility’ via the customizable and adaptable principles
- The stage gates are formal interim reviews based on an approval or acceptance of prior stage work and on an authorization to proceed to the next stage
- The principles of this methodology are common and utilized in organizations with mature Project Management system and processes, especially those in the capital projects industries. In other words, it is a proven methodology!
- Although The SUKAD CAM2P™ Model offers a standard method; one size does not fit all. This means that one solution is not the correct answer for varying projects’ environments and situations
- The Model is generally in line with various global standards and frameworks for Project Management
- One of the primary reasons for The SUKAD CAM2P™ Model is to supplement "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK® Guide) without restricting the approach to PMI®.
