why has project management become so in vogue
Why has Project Management become so in-vogue?
  • diversity of new products and product markets
  • shorter life span of products
  • rapid technological changes
what are the major reasons for project failure
What are the major reasons for project failure?
  • Inadequate conceptualization and definition
    • Specifically, inadequate requirements
  • Absence of a plan
  • Unavailable resources when needed
  • Scope and hope creep
  • Unresponsive contractors who deliver their product late
what are the four stages of the project lifecycle
What are the four stages of the project lifecycle?
  • Conceptualization and Definition
  • Planning and Budgeting
  • Execution and Control
  • Termination and closure
in which of these stages is a wbs started
In which of these stages is a WBS started?
  • Conceptualization and Definition
    • First 3 levels
  • {The WBS is usually finished in the Planning and Budgeting stage}

the main purpose of a project plan is
The main purpose of a project plan is ____
  • acquire resources
  • guide project execution.
  • meet standards expectations.
  • reduce risk.
the most important output of project execution is
The most important output of project execution is
  • Work products
  • Not---change requests
  • Not—the WBS
what are the five steps of the theory of constraints goldratt
What are the five steps of the Theory of Constraints (Goldratt)?
  • IDENTIFY the project constraint
  • Decide how to EXPLOITE that constraint
  • SUBORDINATE everything to that decision
  • ELEVATE the system’s constraint
  • Go back to step a
  • SUBORIDNATE that decision to everything else
you should know
You should know
  • How to construct a PERT chart from a table
  • How to construct a Gantt chart from a table
  • How to perform PERT crashing
  • How to do EVA
questions about ms project
Questions about MS Project
  • Which key for subordination
  • Which key for linking
  • How to view project duration and cost on the project information dialog box
  • How to see all of the activity costs
for ms project to cost your project it needs to know
For MS Project to cost your project, it needs to know
  • Resource hourly costs
  • Activity fixed costs
in ms project durations of phases
In MS Project, durations of phases
  • Containing one of more subordinate tasks can be specified only by MS Project
when using the standard calendar ms project assumes
When using the standard calendar, MS Project assumes

questions over critical chain
Questions over CRITICAL CHAIN
  • Major conclusions, recommendations
  • Goldratt’s view of EVA
  • What to Measure
  • What to Focus on
more questions on critical chain
More Questions on CRITICAL CHAIN
  • To avoid non critical paths from becoming critical you should…
  • Critical chain is the sequence of tasks performed by key persons both on and off the critical path
measurements should
Measurements should
  • Induce the parts to always do what is good for the system as a whole
why does goldratt not like bcwp bcws acwp
Why does Goldratt not like BCWP, BCWS, ACWP?
  • Because they have no sensitivity to the critical path
if you have task on the critical path and
If you have task on the critical path and
  • Your time to complete that task has arrived, then Goldratt recommends that you drop everything and just focus on that task until you get it done!!
notes on shortening project durations
Notes on shortening project durations
  • This must be done in the Planning and Budgeting stage
