Have you seen the updated Manage Focus Area homepage in the latest release of OUM? If you have downloaded the recently released OUM 5.6, you may have noticed the Manage homepage was redesigned so that the primary navigation is now by activity, rather than by process as in prior releases. This was done based on feedback from our global PM community that they prefer to view and manage their projects at the activity level. The new activity diagram navigation allows a PM to see the major blocks of work that must be accomplished by phase. This enhancement provides a flexible checklist and high-level perspective preferred by many OUM project management practitioners.
If you still want to navigate through Manage via the process view (aka the Whale Diagram), you still can. Go to the bottom of the ‘Select a View’ list from the OUM homepage and select ‘Full Method and Focus Areas’. On this page, you can then select the both the primary Manage view or the Manage Process view.
