Underperformance is a common threat to megaproject managers and the track record of cost and time overruns in these projects is well documented. While front end planning is important, not all events and scenarios can be foreseen when the project can take several years to complete and may involve many companies and stakeholders. In our research we find that the capacity to adapt to this uncertainty during the life of the project is crucial for megaproject performance but it is often overlooked as a capability.

Change HEADWAY: Extreme Project Management: Building the Bridge as you Walk on It

PREMIUM presentation

Remember the last project management basics course you attended? The instructor probably talked about the importance of the project plan and that by doing "proper" planning on your project the project will be successful. The plan becomes the silver bullet and if you manage to it, the project will be fine. While great in theory, there are many of us who are finding the traditional approach to project management just simply does not work for us anymore on some of our more dynamic projects. Our projects seem to be in constant flux, always changing, often requiring frequent changes in direction as the end goal of the project is moved, our stakeholders change and we are required to shift our project management approach. The notion of "on-time, on-buget, on-scope" seems to be more of a myth than reality and the idea of being able to plan the whole project at the beginning and sticking close to our project plan is long dead. Join us in our next Change HEADWAY webinar where will be examining the concept of extreme project management and exploring some of the opportunities this project management approach presents and the pitfalls we should avoid.

checklist

Continuous Integration and Testing

by Kapil Kr. Bhatia

Using continuous testing, one can immediately detect problems in code — before it’s too late and problems spread. Using a clever combination of tests, tools, and techniques you can tell right away when there’s a problem and it’s easiest to fix. The author uses a case study to illustrate the benefits of continuous integration (CI) and how it leads to better quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA).

All Integrated Now?

When Estimates Go Wrong

by George Dinwiddie

Custom software development is notoriously difficult to estimate. We start with vague ideas of what we want, expecting to fill in the details later. We’re usually doing something a little different than what we’ve done before, or completely different. How can we act more productively?
