The Value of Planning

by Scott Ambler

There can be significant value in planning, but it is possible to plan too much. Determining the right level should be based on a collection of factors such as the complexity and risk of the situation, the skills and experience of the people involved, and the uncertainty that you face.

Topic Teasers Vol. 133: What Do I Need to Know About DA?

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

Question: One of my team members told me yesterday that PMI is introducing a whole new series of certifications and moving to a more agile approach. How will my PMP® certification that I worked so hard to earn fit into this process? He said it is called DA, so I don’t really understand what this is about and what it will mean to me. Should I be learning this new approach?

Topic Teasers Vol. 148: Understanding Metric Weights and Metric Wings

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

Question: I thought that getting a promotion would be great!

Topic Teasers Vol. 154: Confused by Too Many New Agile Terms?

In my company, different teams use different ways to organize their work, so inter-team communication becomes daunting. What is a good way to learn terms—and advice on how to use them correctly?

Topic Teasers Vol. 164: WoW Can Reduce Negative Investments

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

Question: I have barely recovered from switching to agile, and now there is a new approach to projects: WoW, or “Ways of Working.” Is this really an advantage, or is this just another way to keep us constantly disrupted in the way we do projects? With all of the confusion and turmoil brought about by the pandemic, do we really need yet another change in the way we do projects?
