Description

Timing is everything, even in project management. The key to a successful project is to JPACE it -- that is, to Justify, Plan, Activate, Control and End it the right way. A full life cycle project management process is the essential connective tissue that holds every development project together. It's the disciplined prescription for getting executive buy-in with a solid business case; for defining the project plan, schedule, budget, resources, risks, scope; for securing the resources, motivating the players and launching the project; for monitoring all project activities and deliverables against plan, tracking issues and communicating progress; and for capturing the successes and lessons learned for the next time around.
