Topic Teasers Vol. 58: Sneaky Risks

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

Question: Working in IT, it seems that the normal risk management processes are really sort of a “phone it in” routine exercise. We don’t have to worry too much about the production line needing grease or the recycled sheet metal not arriving on schedule. Is there a better approach to risk for software-centric teams?
A. No. One size fits all. There is always equipment failure and the chance of malware, just to mention two common issues, so follow the same risk processes as all projects do to mitigate risk in your environment.
B. Yes. Make sure you have an open source set of source code analysis tools. Run them each time your developers make a change in the code to search out bugs and other vulnerabilities. That is sufficient to ensure you do not experience unfavorable risk events.
C. No. If you deviate from the risk management processes used by others producing more tangible products, you won’t be able to coordinate your risk data to give management meaningful projection data.
D. Yes. While you don’t have the typical risk issues, you have new and potentially more damaging ones that are seldom addressed in most IT environments. Use some business analysis tools to assess and deal with them.

The result is a blueprint for linking tactical deliverables to enterprise-level outcomes and benefits.

Topic Teasers Vol. 35: Should I Be A PMI-PBA?

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

Question: What’s a project business analyst? My company has a notified me that I’ll be working with a BA on this project, but the job description looks a lot like project management. Who does what, so that we don’t overlap?
A. The project business analyst will focus on requirements and be a liaison to the business stakeholders while you manage the people and resources of the project.
B. The business analyst is similar to the project manager and you must be sure that he or she does not interfere with your authority to head this initiative. You can be either a PMP or a PMI-PBA, but not both.
C. The project business analyst supervises the project manager and his or her team, so be very cooperative or it will affect your next personnel evaluation.
D. Only project managers can be certified to understand what it takes to run a project, so this other position is similar to gaining an administrative assistant to help you.
