Project scheduling has long been formally defined in binary terms. It’s time to recognize and name the third form that combines the two: hybrid scheduling.

One of the 2017 PMI Award for Project Excellence winners, ICT fitout delivered ‘As a Service’ for 1 William Street, saw Dimension Data develop an industry-first technology solution for the Queensland State Government that has provided a benchmark platform that can be readily applied across all state-owned building into the future. Despite challenges, such as having to deal with a large and diverse subcontract base which introduced complexity and potential cost implications, the project was delivered on time and on budget. Learn about this award winning project’s challenges, best practices, and lessons learned in this webinar.
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.

The Project Charter formally authorizes a project or phase. It defines the reason for the project and assigns a project manager—and the PM's authority level. The content of the Charter should describe the project in high-level terms. This revised deliverable is from A Project Manager's Book of Forms - Third Edition (A Companion to the PMBOK® Guide — Sixth Edition).
이 샘플 프로젝트 헌장은 완료해야 할 작업의 범위, 목표 및 전반적인 접근 방식을 정의하는 데 도움이됩니다. 프로젝트를 시작, 계획, 실행, 통제 및 평가하는 데 중요한 요소입니다. 프로젝트 목표 및 범위, 범위, 조직, 추정치, 작업 계획 및 예산에 대한 프로젝트의 단일 참조 점이어야합니다. 또한 프로젝트 팀과 프로젝트 스폰서 간의 계약으로 예산, 시간 제약, 위험, 자원 및 프로젝트에 대해 합의 된 표준에 따라 제공 될 내용을 설명합니다.

Managing early-phase risks is akin to laying a solid foundation on which future project success can be built. The central theme of this article is to identify and create an awareness of major risks that can have a deleterious impact if not managed well—and propose some practical steps to manage them.
Many entities use logical framework analysis (LFA) as a project planning and management tool that is part of almost every project document. LFA is sometimes called a work breakdown structure, but its structure is different. Considering these terminology differences, this article attempts to explain the relation between WBS and LFA.
Every project manager is familiar with the project management triangle, comprised of scope, time and cost. Quality, resources and risk are additional factors that must be accounted for to achieve project success. The focus here is to understand how these constraints are still relevant in the age of agile.
Are you still operating with outdated assumptions and expectations? The stressful process of buying a new home and selling an old one proved to be an enlightening experience in project management and complexity for this practitioner.
When it comes to scheduling, you cannot do advanced tasks before covering the basics. Most people want to do PERT analyses and critical path sensitivities, Monte Carlo simulations and applications of earned value techniques. Those tools can be helpful in providing guidance for better decision making, but a lot of ground must be covered first.
When you think of the leaders who look at your status reports as users, the look and feel of the report you use may be inadequate. Give leaders the information they need in a compelling manner by using design thinking to make improvements in how information is presented.
Project-status reporting is intended to enable decision makers to make informed decisions that will increase the chances of achieving a favorable outcome. The process of establishing an effective and proactive reporting system that ensures engagement of the project executive team is discussed here.
While there are many governance data points that can be gathered and analyzed to help make go/no-go decisions, there are three in this writer's experience that stand out as being the most important.
We generally talk about managing projects that were sold to our customers. But how about the management of a presales project? Is that just like managing any other project? Do we have the same constraints? Is it less stressful?
