  • Project Management

Projects are the means by which an organisation brings about change. Projects are temporary with start and end dates. Most projects are unique. Usually with fixed budgets with a measure of tolerance. Change via projects need to be controlled/managed. Programmes consist of many projects typically over multi-year timeframes.

Always consider a Feasibility Study Project for projects with high risks. Here are some Project Management Comparisons especially for Software Development.

What is Project success / failure?

  • Lack of a valid business case (Objective)
  • Insufficient definition of requirements
  • Poor communication
  • Inadequate acceptance of responsibilities
  • Poor estimation of costs and schedule (Budget)
  • Inadequate planning
  • Lack of control over progress
  • Lack of quality control


  • P3M3 - assesses project execution capability
  • CMMI - assessing computing maturity

Rules of Thumbs

  • A typical Project Manager can manage up to 6-8 team members/team managers.
    • Communication overheads overload when > 8 people
  • Verify and Validate is important
