Kris Integrated PM Model
Systems thinking's main problem is trying to break a system down to all its constituting elements, and then trying to examine each element's characteristics separately. The hope is to attain complete understanding of the entire system. However, this kind of breakdown method often 'sees the trees, but not the forest'. They overlook micro relationships between various sub-systems and elements. PMI's PMBOK, for example, has the above system breakdown problem.
Our company, in project management training and consulting, emphasizes an integrated model. Based on 'Kris Systems Control Model', we describe a total dynamic relationships framework, which more closely reflects the real world of project management. Please see below figure.
