PREMIUM webinar

How an Acceptable Level of Scope Creep Trains Clients to Become Better Project Stewards and Allows PMs to Deliver Greater Value Scope creep is one of the top indicators of project failure. As budgets shrink and capacity flees, it is important that Project Managers manage and maintain client expectations while allowing and forecasting a reasonable level of creep in an effort to satisfy and add greater value to the client and customers. Participants will gain a framework for determining an allowable level of scope creep and assessing the impact on resources and interests. Additionally, participants will learn how to chart a client engagement path that develops clients into better project stewards.

Según el reporte PMI Pulse of the Profession 2018, aproximadamente el 50% de los proyectos no llegan a cumplir con el presupuesto original ni con el tiempo establecido para su ejecución, monitoreo y cierre. Casi 47% de estos proyectos sufrieron corrupción de su alcance original, siendo considerados como un fracaso en su gestión integral. Son estadísticas que alertan a la disciplina de la dirección de proyectos a tomar acciones inmediatas para su mejora. La auditoría aporta un valor significativo en la gestión del ciclo de vida de un proyecto, desde sus fases de conceptualización y pre-factibilidad, hasta su transición a la operación y medición de generación de valor mediante la gestión de realización de sus beneficios. Dicha relevancia es evidenciada, al incluir a la auditoría como una herramienta y técnica en algunos de los 49 procesos descritos en el PMBOK. No obstante, en la actualidad no existe un estándar de auditoría claramente difundido y entendido en la comunidad de Dirección de Proyectos, que brinde lineamientos claves sobre que documentos y técnicas lúdicas pueden contribuir en la detección de anomalías en cualquier punto del proyecto y sobre cualquier área de conocimiento, y que permita establecer acciones correctivas/preventivas previo al fracaso. Como consecuencia, es de vital importancia transmitir a los directores de proyectos la necesidad de aprender nuevas herramientas analíticas de auditoría, que les permitan evaluar el desempeño general en la administración de un proyecto, con el propósito de garantizar el éxito en la consecución de sus objetivos alineados a los beneficios esperados por la organización ejecutora.

Topic Teasers Vol. 115: Project QuickPlan

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Maybe I’m a project manager, or maybe a ScrumMaster? All I know is that my organization is using a form of agile, and I think implementing the most important parts of it. But we don’t quite have the entire “team meeting with the product owner and the other high-level stakeholders” perfected yet. For the necessary communication, I do get to sit with them and ask questions, which is good. However, without my familiar processes and paperwork for traditional projects, I don’t quite know what to ask or how to get the proper sign-offs. How can I make sure I’m taking the proper information back to my team?
