Project Management, Performance Measures, and Statistical Decision Making

Herding Cats

There is a current rash of suggestions on how to improve the performance of software projects. Figure 1 - Planned Estimates versus Actual Performance from [1]. Schedule Estimation and Uncertainty Surrounding the Cone of Uncertainty, Todd Little, IEEE Software , May/June 2006. Each of these, while well meaning, are missing the means to confirm their credibility.

Compendium of Works to Increase Probability of Project Success

Herding Cats

Project Performance Management (#PPM). Technical Performance Measures (#TPM). Cost, Schedule, and Technical Performance Management (#CSTPM). The overarching theme is focused on defining what Done looks like, assessing progress toward Done in units of measure meaningful to the decision makers. Those units always start with Measures of Effectiveness and Measures of Performance. Project Performance Management.

Risk Management is How Adults Manage Projects

Herding Cats

All making things smaller dos is show that you're late, over budget, and what you're building (Technical Performance Measures) doesn't work faster. But when some statement is made about risk, estimating, performance modeling, or the like - always ask for references. Stewart, ACTEX Publications, 2006.

Microeconomics and Risk Management in Decision Making for Software Development

Herding Cats

Cost and schedule growth for software development programs is created by unrealistic technical performance expectations, unrealistic cost and schedule estimates, inadequate risk assessments, unanticipated technical issues, and poorly performed and ineffective risk management, all contributing to program technical and programmatic shortfalls. risks that may prevent the end item from performing as intended or not meeting performance expectations. 3, August 2006, pp.

Deconstructing The Cone of Uncertainty

Herding Cats

Landmark’s measure of success over these three years had much more to do with customer satisfaction and market share than with meeting knowingly aggressive targets. Don't toss out the notion that reducing risk and uncertanty and all other performance measures doesn't follow the plan. . The Cone of Uncertainty is the Planned reduction in the uncertainty of critical project variables (cost, schedule, technical performance) needed to increase the probability of project success.

Cone of Uncertainty - Part Trois

Herding Cats

The Cone is a project management framework describing the uncertainty aspects of estimates (cost and schedule) and other project attributes (cost, schedule, and technical performance parameters). Estimates of cost, schedule, technical performance on the left side of the cone have a lower probability of being precise and accurate than estimates on the right side of the cone. The Cone is NOT the result of the project's past performance.

Cone of Uncertainty - Part Cinq (Updated)

Herding Cats

The Cone is a project management framework describing the uncertainty aspects of estimates (cost and schedule) and other project attributes (cost, schedule, and technical performance parameters). Estimates of cost, schedule, technical performance on the left side of the cone have a lower probability of being precise and accurate than estimates on the right side of the cone. The Cone of Uncertainty describes the evolution of the measure of uncertainty during a project.

Modeling the Future is the Basis of Project Success

Herding Cats

The model of the project or program tells us what the cost, schedule, and performance - Effectiveness and Performance - Need to be for the project to be a success. Past performance data or the Model of the needed Future performance of the project? . Performance Analysis and Prediction . Performance of cost, schedule, and technical outcomes are primary measures of success for the future outcomes of projects. There's a notion going around that. “I
