Hi Rami,

that was meant by the "Recommendation" branch; no good?

Hi Markus,

though there would be a lot of overlap with the risk management, maybe make it a SWOT analysis for each alternative rather than just pros&cons?

Hi Thilo,

hmmm, from my understanding the SWOT analsysis (or whatever analysis technnique would have been used to conduct the business case) should have been done already and we just document the results here as an input to the project charter.

Background:
My general understanding is, that the business analysis and the business case/documents where already done from the organizations business analyst for instance.
I know that in reality often the project managers have to perform this role in addition, but i would like to concentrate here on the project management role and the PMBoK Guide processes.
If we are done with that, we could extend "MP4PM" to the business analysis part too (may be i have my PBA til then what would makes a lot of sense, i guess ...;) ).
Does this makes sense to you?

Regards,

Markus
Hi Markus

the link doesn't work for me!
Should there be a cost/value associated with alternative?

Hi Vincent,

link should work know.

We have an additional "Cost / benefit" branch within the map:

https://www.projectmanagement.com/discussi...---Cost-Benefit

In the final map this part will be linked to the alternatives. Does this satisfy your point?

Markus

I thought this Recomendation branch is for Alternative No. 1 only. If it is for the overall assessment of all alternatives then yes, its fine.

Hi Rami,

sorry, it was my fault because of the bad structuring within the original posting.
I will bring the map online tomorrow for reviewing directly within the map structure, then it should become much more transparent.
Next time i will bring up the map online before posting the discussion threads.
Sorry for any inconvenience.

Markus

No worries Markus - That would be a great idea to bring the map online so it gives a better understanding of the overall structure.
