==Project Methodology Matrix==
 
There are a number of project management methodologies. Project size, project nature, stakeholders, budgets, risk profiles, project interfaces will determine the type of project methodology to use. Some Project methods are:
 
 
* PRINCE2 is strong on governance. Generally more strategic. Not used for Product Management. Good baseline product management.
 
* PMBOK says nothing about governance. Focuses on assets.
 
* MSP (Managing Successful Programs)

ACTIVE METHODOLOGIES
  • 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 timeframe.

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