Técnicas de Auditoría para una Gestión Efectiva de Proyectos

by Alfredo Armijos
November 27, 2018 | 61:09 | Views: 1,465 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.43 / 5

Según el reporte PMI Pulse of the Profession 2018, aproximadamente el 50% de los proyectos no llegan a cumplir con el presupuesto original ni con el tiempo establecido para su ejecución, monitoreo y cierre. Casi 47% de estos proyectos sufrieron corrupción de su alcance original, siendo considerados como un fracaso en su gestión integral. Son estadísticas que alertan a la disciplina de la dirección de proyectos a tomar acciones inmediatas para su mejora. La auditoría aporta un valor significativo en la gestión del ciclo de vida de un proyecto, desde sus fases de conceptualización y pre-factibilidad, hasta su transición a la operación y medición de generación de valor mediante la gestión de realización de sus beneficios. Dicha relevancia es evidenciada, al incluir a la auditoría como una herramienta y técnica en algunos de los 49 procesos descritos en el PMBOK. No obstante, en la actualidad no existe un estándar de auditoría claramente difundido y entendido en la comunidad de Dirección de Proyectos, que brinde lineamientos claves sobre que documentos y técnicas lúdicas pueden contribuir en la detección de anomalías en cualquier punto del proyecto y sobre cualquier área de conocimiento, y que permita establecer acciones correctivas/preventivas previo al fracaso. Como consecuencia, es de vital importancia transmitir a los directores de proyectos la necesidad de aprender nuevas herramientas analíticas de auditoría, que les permitan evaluar el desempeño general en la administración de un proyecto, con el propósito de garantizar el éxito en la consecución de sus objetivos alineados a los beneficios esperados por la organización ejecutora.

Save Time With Tools + Templates

Gantt Planner for Excel

deliverable
by Gary Weber

The tool creates a Gantt chart that can be used for presentations. Using this planner for "what-if" upfront planning is faster and easier than trying to do it in real time with dedicated project software. The tool easily allows adding comments or annotations to a Gantt chart, re-arranging tasks into logical flows, or showing multiple tasks in a single row.

Master Resource Plan

deliverable
by Gaurav Kukreja

The template is a detailed IT Resource Master Plan that includes the labor resources required to produce the project deliverable. The Resource Master Plan can be a living document that is actively maintained and managed throughout the life of an IT project. This also contains the Resource Ramp-up Chart to help plan project teamwork effort burn rates (and analyze their burn-rate forecast).

presentation
by Mayte Mata-Sivera

How to Integrate Time Zones for Successful Collaboration

by Mark Kilby

Many managers of distributed agile software teams struggle with time zones. Team members may also struggle with maintaining a traditional eight-hour workday when separated by multiple time zones. Perhaps it’s not the time zones that are the challenge; the real challenge lies in re-thinking the workday of the team.

Introducing Program Maps

by Gregory Fabian, PMP

A program map is a diagramming technique used for showing the relationship between various components (usually operations and project-type activities) of a program and program events plotted against time.

Topic Teasers Vol. 112: PMBOK® Guide—Sixth Edition New Earned Schedule Theory

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

Question: One of my colleagues told me that they are changing the earned value management (EVM) formulas. We have many projects in progress, with automated charts and spreadsheets configured with the current calculations I was taught to use in my Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification exam prep training.
