Compendium of Works to Increase Probability of Project Success

Herding Cats

Management Processes (#MP). Project Performance Management (#PPM). Technical Performance Measures (#TPM). Cost, Schedule, and Technical Performance Management (#CSTPM). Those units always start with Measures of Effectiveness and Measures of Performance.

Decision Analysis - Ordinal and Cardinal Measures

Herding Cats

This method is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP). AHP is based on the principle that all measurements are relative. Using this method, the performance, cost, time, and risks of alternatives can be articulated as ratios that can then be compared with one another.

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.

Managing in Presence of Uncertainty

Herding Cats

The uncertainty is always there, it doesn't go away with specific actions in specific domains, or with the use of any tools, processes, or practices. Do we have measures of Effectiveness, Performance, all the .ilities. We need a formal risk management process.

Cone of Uncertainty - Part Cinq

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). The Cone is NOT the result of the project's past performance.

What Is Risk?

Herding Cats

ISO 31000:2009, ISO 17666:2016 and ISO 11231:2010 Risk is Uncertainty that Matters. risks that may prevent the end item from performing as intended or not meeting performance expectations. Measures of Effectiveness, Measures of Performance, Technical Performance Measures, and Key Performance Parameters describe the measures of these expectations. risks that affect the cost and schedule measures of the program.

Cone of Uncertainty - Part Trois

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). 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). The Cone of Uncertainty describes the evolution of the measure of uncertainty during a project.

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.

Why Johnny Can't Do The Math

Herding Cats

All business microeconomics decision processes focus on Value, but along with that is the equal focus on the Cost to produce that Value. Non-Ergodic processes don't possess this property. Software development is a non-ergodic process. A Darwinian evolution process is non-ergodic.
