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.

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. If the programmers have written it, why can’t we just complete this contract now?
