Project Management Quick Tips - Lesson 3

Jadi Insinyur beneran !

Bismillahirrahmannirrahim.

..

Suasana hening. Masing-masing siswa sibuk dengan ujiannya. Pak Guru kini mulai mengitari kelas setelah hampir 1,5 jam duduk di singgasananya. Sampailah beliau di sebelah saya, mengambil kertas ujian saya, dan memperhatikannya dengan seksama. Lalu berujar, "Wah, kamu bakal jadi insinyur nih man!".
Tidak tahu mengapa beliau mengucapkan seperti itu, baru saya tahu 2 minggu kemudian setelah hasil ujian itu diketahui ternyata saya mendapat nilai 95. Nilai yang hampir sempurna untuk mata pelajaran Matematika saat saya duduk di kelas 4 SD 04 Ptg.
Saya punya sahabat dekat yang cukup pintar saat SD. Teringat ketika membicarakan tentang cita-cita, saya masih ragu dengan cita-cita saya, yang paling mantap adalah jadi ABRI karena gagahnya terlihat di layar TV. Tetapi sahabat saya itu punya cita-cita jadi Insinyur, ternyata dia juga terinspirasi dari sinetron Si Doel yang jadi Insinyur. Sayangnya ketika saya tanyakan jadi Insinyur itu kerjanya apa, dia juga ragu jawabnya. Akhirnya saya tidak berminat jadi Insinyur.

****

Seisi kelas begitu ramai, sampai menjadi hening ketika sang guru masuk ke kelas. Sebelum kelas dimulai akan diumumkan terlebih dahulu 3 nilai tertinggi hasil ujian bayangan mata pelajaran Fisika di Bimbel Santo Lukas yang saya ikuti itu. Disebutlah nama pertama, dan semua orang bersorak karena mengenal nama itu. Disebutlah nama kedua, seisi kelas pun kembali ramai. Disebutlah nama ketiga, tetapi seisi kelas hanya menengok ke kanan dan ke kiri, sampai saya yang duduk paling belakang mengangkat tangan dan semua mata tertuju pada saya. Teman saya dari SMP 227 hanya tersenyum, ternyata siswa dari SMP 239 ini boleh juga ya.

****

Satu persatu siswa keluar lebih dahulu dari kelas, menyelesaikan tes IQ yang diadakan untuk seluruh siswa kelas 2 SMA 38. Keren juga saya pikir, soal-soal sesulit ini dapat diselesaikan kurang dari waktu yang ditentukan. Sayapun belum menyelesaikannya pada waktu yang ditentukan, sampai harus asal-asalan mengisi jawaban dengan waktu yang singkat. Tidak lama kemudian hasil tesnya keluar. Ternyata saya termasuk salah satu siswa yang mendapat nilai IQ yang tinggi, katanya. Tapi yang saya perhatikan adalah saran dari hasil tes itu. Bahwa saya disarankan untuk bergelut dibidang Industri atau Konstruksi Bangunan. Wah, binatang apapula itu, karena tidak mengerti akhirnya saya acuhkan.

Sudah tiga kali hasil try out di Bimbel Quantum tempat saya belajar tidak memuaskan. Bimbel itu tidak hanya memberi bimbingan belajar, tapi juga membimbing siswanya untuk mengetahui seluk beluk ujian, cara dan strategi masuk perguruan tinggi, dan lainnya. Ketika hasil try out yang terakhir, ternyata hasil nilai saya tidak sampai juga untuk memenuhi passing grade tempat kuliah yang saya inginkan, MIPA FISIKA UI. Bahkan saya disarankan untuk mengambil Fisika UNPAD untuk pilihan pertama, dan FISIKA UNDIP untuk pilihan kedua. Akhirnya saya berkonsultasi, sarannya adalah agar saya memilih pilihan pertama sebagai pilihan impian, pilihan kedua sebagai pilihan aman (yang penting masuk PT Negeri). Maka saat pendaftaran SPMB saya memberanikan diri untuk mengambil MIPA FISIKA UI sebagai pilihan aman, berhubung setiap hasil try out saya terus mengalami peningkatan, sehingga saya yakin nilai saya saat SPMB nanti juga akan mengalami kenaikan sehingga akan masuk grade MIPA FISIKA UI. Saya berminat masuk Fisika UI karena saya ingin menciptakan bom nuklir yang akan menyaingi Amerika, maklum saat itu semangat untuk jadi teroris lagi tinggi-tingginya :).
Lalu pilihan pertama sebagai pilihan impian adalah Teknik Sipil UI. Awalnya saya akan mengambil Teknik Elektro UI karena sangat berminat dibidang itu. Banyak pengalaman saya waktu kecil yang membuat saya tertarik di bidang Elektro, terutama ketika Bapak saya yang guru Fisika itu membawa peralatan praktikumnya ke rumah. Tetapi saya tahu diri saja, passing gradenya terlalu tinggi untuk dicapai, jadi saya coba cari jurusan lain di Teknik yang mungkin masih bisa saya capai, atau yang peminatnya sedikit. Ternyata saya jatuh hati di Teknik Sipil UI setelah saya baca-baca tentang Teknik Sipil UI di buku panduan yang saya ambil saat ada Pameran Perguruan Tinggi di JCC Senayan.

****
Setelah masuk UI, ternyata isinya orang pintar semua. Saya jadi paling goblog disana, bahkan sempat berpikir untuk berubah haluan. IP di semester pertama saja cuma 2,2, bahkan sempat disemester-semester berikutnya menikmati IP 1, (satu koma). Payah deh.. Apa mau dikata, saya udah di dalam, yang ada ya harus dihadapi. Jadilah saya lulus setelah 5 tahun berkutat di Teknik Sipil UI. Eh, baru mau wisuda malah mau mati (baca:kecelakaan). Untung saya masih hidup sampai sekarang. Alhamdulillah.. Jadilah saya Insinyur beneran sekarang...sotoy tapinya...hahaha...
Kagak nyangka deh tuh omongan guru gua waktu SD, jadi kenyataan...(keluar deh Betawinya)

****
Belum selesai saudara-saudara...
Sahabat dekat yang saya ceritakan tadi sekarang hanya jadi Security. Cara berpikirnya kurang terbuka, selesai SMA langsung kerja. Tapi saya harus maklum, kondisi ekonomi yang membuatnya harus demikian. Walau seharusnya dia bisa cari beasiswa kalau benar-benar ingin menggapai cita-citanya, karena saya yakin orangnya cukup pintar. Tapi sayang, kurang cerdas dalam menyikapi keterbatasan ekonominya. Bukankah Allah tidak akan mengubah suatu kaum, kalau kaum itu tidak mau mengubahnya?

****
Jadi saudara-saudara, bersyukurlah atas nikmat yang Anda punya sekarang. Jangan mengeluh doang. Kita masih lebih beruntung dari orang-orang sekitar kita yang kekurangan. Dan ternyata Allah tidak selalu berkehendak seperti apa yang kita kehendaki.

Wallahu'alam

How to Manage To Do Lists

from

Most Project Managers have too much to do. So they end up with “To Do” lists all over the place and it can be overwhelming. So how do you manage your "To Do" lists to make sure they get done? Here's how...

How to Manage To Do Lists

To deliver your project successfully, you need to complete the right tasks at the right time. That's why people create "To Do Lists" - so that they know what they have to do and by when.

But it's not that easy. You're often adding more tasks to your lists than you are completing them, so you feel like you're not getting ahead. Here's what to do...

Only One List

If you have lists on your desk, in your car, or on post-it notes, then merge them all into one list. Then group the items in your list and try and put them in a logical order. As soon as you've done this, you'll immediately feel like a weight has been taken off your shoulders, because everything you have to do is now all in one place. You're ready to take the next step...

Targets and Dates

Now sit back and think about what you have to achieve and by when. Write down your targets and deadlines. If you're unsure what these are, speak to your boss and get them to list the top 5 things they want you to do and by when. Write them down and try and get your boss to prioritize them, so you know which items are critical.

Set Clear Priorities

Type your list into your PC and prioritize it based on:

  • The targets and dates sent
  • The amount of work each item will take
  • The complexity in completing the task
  • The importance of the task to the project
  • The deadlines for completion

Define the Critical Path

On many projects, not all tasks get done. There simply isn't the time. So you need to identify the 'critical path' tasks which are those that simply have to be done to complete the project. The question to ask yourself is "if this task is late, will it cause the overall project to be late?" If the answer is 'yes', then that task is on the critical path to success. You need to complete these critical tasks as a higher priority than others.

Manage Your lists

Take the next step by setting target completion dates for your critical tasks. You then need to do everything in your power to make sure that these dates are met. Don't worry about settings dates for non-critical tasks. It takes too much time and things change anyway.

Then as the project evolves, tick-off the tasks as they are completed. And when new tasks arrive, decide whether they are critical or not and if they are, then set targets dates for them as well. Always keep your list up-to-date, as it will help you complete the right tasks at the right time.

If you want to save time working on your To Do Lists, then use these Project Management Templates.

Key Performance Indicators (KPI)

How an organization defines and measures progress toward its goals

By F. John Reh, About.com

http://management.about.com/cs/generalmanagement/a/keyperfindic.htm

Key Performance Indicators, also known as KPI or Key Success Indicators (KSI), help an organization define and measure progress toward organizational goals.

Once an organization has analyzed its mission, identified all its stakeholders, and defined its goals, it needs a way to measure progress toward those goals. Key Performance Indicators are those measurements.

What Are Key Performance Indicators (KPI)

Key Performance Indicators are quantifiable measurements, agreed to beforehand, that reflect the critical success factors of an organization. They will differ depending on the organization. A business may have as one of its Key Performance Indicators the percentage of its income that comes from return customers. A school may focus its Key Performance Indicators on graduation rates of its students. A Customer Service Department may have as one of its Key Performance Indicators, in line with overall company KPIs, percentage of customer calls answered in the first minute. A Key Performance Indicator for a social service organization might be number of clients assisted during the year.

Whatever Key Performance Indicators are selected, they must reflect the organization's goals, they must be key to its success,and they must be quantifiable (measurable). Key Performance Indicators usually are long-term considerations. The definition of what they are and how they are measured do not change often. The goals for a particular Key Performance Indicator may change as the organization's goals change, or as it gets closer to achieving a goal.

Key Performance Indicators Reflect The Organizational Goals

An organization that has as one of its goals "to be the most profitable company in our industry" will have Key Performance Indicators that measure profit and related fiscal measures. "Pre-tax Profit" and "Shareholder Equity" will be among them. However, "Percent of Profit Contributed to Community Causes" probably will not be one of its Key Performance Indicators. On the other hand, a school is not concerned with making a profit, so its Key Performance Indicators will be different. KPIs like "Graduation Rate" and "Success In Finding Employment After Graduation", though different, accurately reflect the schools mission and goals.

Key Performance Indicators Must Be Quantifiable

If a Key Performance Indicator is going to be of any value, there must be a way to accurately define and measure it. "Generate More Repeat Customers" is useless as a KPI without some way to distinguish between new and repeat customers. "Be The Most Popular Company" won't work as a KPI because there is no way to measure the company's popularity or compare it to others.

It is also important to define the Key Performance Indicators and stay with the same definition from year to year. For a KPI of "Increase Sales", you need to address considerations like whether to measure by units sold or by dollar value of sales. Will returns be deducted from sales in the month of the sale or the month of the return? Will sales be recorded for the KPI at list price or at the actual sales price?

You also need to set targets for each Key Performance Indicator. A company goal to be the employer of choice might include a KPI of "Turnover Rate". After the Key Performance Indicator has been defined as "the number of voluntary resignations and terminations for performance, divided by the total number of employees at the beginning of the period" and a way to measure it has been set up by collecting the information in an HRIS, the target has to be established. "Reduce turnover by five percent per year" is a clear target that everyone will understand and be able to take specific action to accomplish.
