Introduction   »   Overview   »   Your Planning

Your project strategy will define success in terms of time. Your plans will split that time into project deliverables and shipments. These periods of project time are fixed, set in stone and have a start date and end date. The project manager will liaise with team members to define and agree deliverables for each time period. The team will estimate the work to complete in the time period and agree with the business team which priority deliverables are produced. A tolerable mix of competently estimated and prioritized requirements will be delivered in the time period with any residue identified. The identified residue is debated in alliance with the business team and, once agreed, it is added as a requirement. The requirement will be prioritized alongside other requirements in the next time period. These residues get smaller and less common as the project progresses, as the estimating process improves, as timebox planning exercises improve, as the burn-rate increases and as more projects are delivered.

By keeping to the principles of deliver on time and maintaining a focus on business demands we produce what the business wants within an accurately forecasted time period. Because we always keep to the end date of that time period we never deliver behind schedule. In fact we reliably predict that when the project ends, your project team will alter its vocabulary.

You no longer have any requirement for the word: LATE. This four letter word is removed from your dictionary. Now, it is absolutely impossible to have overdue deliveries, missed deadlines, delays or anything else late. These words drop from your vocabulary altogether. To understand how we go from Strategy to Delivery we will look at our budgets, how we measure our costs and time as well as an evaluation of quality. Before we do that though we will address important Project management techniques including the topics of Project Planning, Re-planning, Coaching, Leadership, Estimating, Engagement, Managing Resources, choosing the project as well as explaining what is a Programme and a Project.

First of all let us unravel the topic of project management.
