The Problems with Schedules

Herding Cats

Unrealistic Cost and Schedule estimates based on inadequate risk adjusted growth models. Inadequate accessment of risk and unmitigated exposure to these risks with proper handling plans. Unrealistic Cost and Schedule estimates based on inadequate risk adjusted growth models. Both these cause risk to cost, schedule, and technical outcomes. Inadequate assessment of risk and unmitigated exposure to these risks with proper handling plans.

DDSTOP The Saga Continues

Herding Cats

We were one of the first users of eXtreme Programming, long before Scrum was around and presented that early work in 2003, " Making Agile Development Work in a Government Contracting Environment, Measuring velocity with Earned Value." . In our software-intensive system of systems domain, we develop proposals with 80% confidence of completing on time and on budget at the time of submission. Define the risks - reducible and irreducible - to each Capability and their Features.

The Impact of Technology on Project Management: Pre-1950s to the Modern Age

Keyedin

During and after the world wars, activities were beginning to be completed on a larger scale, meaning there was more need for budget, supply and labour management. The algorithm, which schedules a set of project activities, can be adapted to any type of project, including construction, aerospace, defence, software development, product development and engineering. The crisis was averted, but not without a valuable lesson on the importance of risk management in a company.
