What is NUPP

NUPP is a collection of nearly universal principles of projects: those we’d better follow in all projects, regardless of the methodologies and approaches that we use, to maximize our success.

Each resource and method for running projects pays attention to some of these NUPs (nearly universal principles), however:

it’s usually not all of them, and it would be helpful for the practitioners to consider all NUPs instead of a subset, and the underlying principles are usually not clear enough in resources, and most practitioners are so engaged in practical details that forget about principles and do things that are not compatible with them. NUPP is compatible with all major methods, systems, resources, and frameworks such as PRINCE2, PMBOK Guide, P3.express, DSDM, XP, and Scrum. Although, it may not be compatible with certain interpretations of those systems, and that’s where NUPP tries to encourage practitioners to reconsider their interpretations. NUPs are:

NUP1: prefer results and the truth to affiliations NUP2: preserve and optimize energy and resources NUP3: always be proactive NUP4: remember that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link NUP5: don’t do anything without a clear purpose NUP6: use repeatable elements NUPP is open-source and published for free under a Creative Commons license. Ideas for improvement of NUPP are very welcome. We'd be happy to know that you're interested in translating NUPP to other languages. Please contact us for arrangements.
