Specificity of Indonesian project development method
It is common knowledge that Indonesian projects do not go as expected. Not only Japanese but also Indonesians see it that way. This is not limited to Indonesia, but an international sense, which is also the significance of the existence of a project management company. In ASEAN countries, how will each country deal with such a situation? The key point is； It is based on the understanding of human beings, that is, the understanding of politics, economy, culture, religion, and the people in charge of each project, and how to customize how to make decisions. It is “know-how” that can be backed up by past experience and accurate information grasping.
Agile technique； By the way, I feel the affinity between the “agile development method”, which is often featured in the media these days, and the Indonesian project management method. According to Wikipedia, “Agile development methods are software development that values people, speed, customers, and adaptability.” Agile is literally “quick,” “agile,” and “head.” It means “the rotation of is fast”. This applies not only to software development but also to construction and other projects. Even in the project of the Indonesian start-up company that is currently participating, the action of the operation and development team is “not proceeding as expected” as expected here. However, regarding the progress of the project, we are trying to draw out the maximum potential by understanding the trial & error process and finally lead to “higher results than expected”. How much is allowed and how to correct the trajectory of “deviation” from contract documents that occurs according to the progress of the project, such as the concept, schedule, and drawings in the business plan. That “sag adjustment” is both the difficulty and the appeal of international projects. What are the client companies that will launch projects in Indonesia? I want to steadily commit to the results while sharing the “agile development method” approach and that feeling. JPID’s project direction thinks this way.
