Key Performance Indicator Template

PREMIUM deliverable
by Harold Hunt

While numerous key performance indicators (KPIs) typically influence IT projects generally, the benefit of tracking all of them may be outweighed by the cost to do so. Therefore, each project must carefully select and manage those KPIs most relevant to its specific situation. This sample template can be used to define KPIs; also included is a table with examples of possible KPIs for each of the previously defined project-critical success factors (PCSFs) and a metric (measure and dimension) for each KPI. Use in conjunction with the article Determining IT Project Health.

Go-Live Readiness Assessment

PREMIUM deliverable
by Darlene Rudolph

Use this assessment to determine if a system is ready to go to production. It is a series of spreadsheets that allow different modules to have both ticket tracking (bugs) and other criteria; then based on thresholds, the system can be assessed as ready or not ready to go live.

Project Cost Control Tool

deliverable
by Brice Cothenet

This template allows you to access the main data you need to monitor for a relevant view of your project cost, all in one table: budget (at completion), actual cost, estimate to complete and estimate at completion. It automatically draws the appropriate curve.

Checklist de Código Auto Documentado

PREMIUM checklist

El código es la firma de un desarrollador en un proyecto de software, y no todos los desarrolladores cumplen las reglas de los buenos estándares de codificación.

Topic Teasers Vol. 100: PMs Supervising Code

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

Question: Help! I’m a project manager on assignment from a consulting company working with an agile lead and team who are also from my home firm. We are here to rewrite and get working a code project that was written by the client a year ago but never released. It is poorly documented and the coders have since left the customer company. The agile lead says our new code is done, but our team still needs about three months before we can do our final release. If I’m honest, I’m lost.
