Just Released – Leveraging Business Analysis for Project Success

Announcing the release of  Leveraging Business Analysis for Project Success , a new book by Vicki James, PMP, CBAP, PMI-PBA. Only 39% of project today are successful.  Nearly half of the projects that fail, fail because of “poor requirements management” (PMI 2014). Leveraging Business Analysis for Project Success explores the role of the business analyst in setting a project up for success. It informs and educates project managers, sponsors, and organization leaders on what is necessary for project success. It goes beyond requirements management in exploring the how the business analyst can contribute to increased profitability through project selection, scope definition, and post-implementation evaluation.  The reader will learn about the history of business analysis, professional organizations and resources to support the profession, and what to expect from the business analyst at each phase of the project lifecycle as presented in a case study throughout the text. Project leaders will better be able to support the business analysis needs of the project by understanding the skills, expertise, tasks, resources, and time needed to do business analysis right and maximize the return on investment for each project.

Alex Sherrer en el blog de PMHut , traigo ahora el artículo denominado ” La Oficina de Proyectos de una sola persona. ” Una oficina de Administración de proyectos puede ser un recurso valioso para los administradores de proyecto, ya que proporciona liderazgo, entrenamiento, conocimientos, mejores prácticas, priorización de proyectos y procesos alineados a la organización. Pero aunque cada vez más empresas están creando oficinas de administración de proyectos, la mayoría de las pequeñas y medianas empresas no tienen una PMO. Pero eso no significa que no pueda existir una PMO de una sola persona

Assess for Success

If success means tangible business value then projects must deliver something that actually fits what the business needs. Yet over time these two can and do get out of synch.  By stepping away from the mechanics of a project we can assess and decide if it’s really worth continuing. It’s been a while between blog posts but I’ve had some projects on the go that have kept me more than occupied. Some have been client projects and others personal. One thing’s for sure, whether you’re… Managing a project, eg: house extension, ERP system implementation, or search, selection and procurement exercise; or Part of a project team; or Consulting about projects, ie: an individual project itself or the structures and processes that support and govern them, and how they’re strategically aligned. …much of what we do in our work and lives is project based. That’s got me pondering two questions: How often are projects assessed?

Notas sobre valor ganado (6 de 6)

La programación ganada como complemento al Valor Ganado. Finalmente, el Análisis de Valor Ganado tiene un problema de concepto que no afecta su efectividad, pero que vale la pena conocer: Al finalizar el proyecto el Valor Ganado (EV) y el Valor Planeado (PV) van a coincidir haciendo que el Índice de Desempeño del Costo (SPI) sea igual a uno, independientemente de cual haya sido su comportamiento a lo largo del proyecto. Por esta razón algunos autores sugieren complementar el Análisis de Valor Ganado con el concepto de Programación Ganada. El Dr. Diego Navarro explica en su blog : (La Programación Ganada) “es una idea análoga a la del valor ganado, aunque en vez de utilizar unidades monetarias para medir desviaciones y eficiencias de programación se utilizan unidades de tiempo” “La programación ganada, que denotaremos por PG, no es más que la fecha en la que el coste planificado acumulado CP del proyecto es igual al valor ganado acumulado VG en la fecha de estado FE. Si el proyecto sigue a rajatabla su curso planificado, estas fechas coincidirán. En caso contrario, no.” Este link  es una Artículo muy completo del Dr

“They make it easier to keep track….”

I had an interesting conversation last week with someone who had used our project management templates. This person had seen the templates, downloaded the templates and used them.
