Is the term “talent management” a management theory or practical reality? This two-part series takes a practical look at four primary elements from a common definition of talent management. Up next: develop and retain.
Launch Trajectory – Why Integrating Definition and Execution Is Critical to Development Project, Program and Portfolio Success
It isn't easy to make exact copies of even a simple product, but at least you begin that effort knowing what "done" looks like. Development introduces a special kind of challenge – you only learn what "done" looks like at the end. The critical path for execution becomes dependent upon the critical path for definition and vice versa. The development path can be thought of as a part "altitude" you wish to attain and part "distance" you must travel to get there. We'll use this powerful analogy to explore why development outcomes vary so widely, why Agile methods are essential, and to help you plot the optimum launch trajectory for any given effort.
Gantt Charts are a fine mechanism for planning projects that have well bounded activities with a clean start and end point, and with understood dependencies and sequences. But in the non-linear, sometimes chaotic world of Product Development, Gantt Charts can be inadequate, cumbersome, or even misleadingly inaccurate. In the session, we will explore an alternative using mechanism of Agile product development - a Backlog of value to deliver with estimations of size (effort) and a reality-based Burndown that shows a plan with visible assumptions. Together these mechanism provide an effective way to plan, track, and replan a complex Product Development effort.
Project management is not an exact science as much as we want it to be. People are dynamic. They change hour to hour while projects last months or years. As a leader, project managers have to deal with these dynamic individuals on a daily basis. There is not a science that has come up with an equation to solve the mental mysteries of team members.

This record and tracker is designed to provide a snapshot view of every team member's booked leave for the duration of a project. This is beneficial when scheduling a project as well as when you need to check the availability and remaining leave of team members. In practice, a copy of this can be mailed to the team member for their records, apart from holding a master copy in the cloud or on a central network drive.
