STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 984 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Project Management improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 984 standard requirements:

  1. There is lots of discussion about the role of a project manager; whether a project manager is needed in the agile world or not. How much and which way a traditional project manager has to change his/her management style or way of working in order to be an agile project manager?

  2. Troubleshooting _ are problems related to what is actually changing (the change), to the management of tasks and resources to make the change happen (project management) or to issues relating to employee engagement, buy-in and resistance (Change Management)?

  3. How do you merge agile, lightweight processes with standard industrial processes without either killing agility or undermining the years youve spent defining and refining your systems and software process assets?

  4. The fundamentals of agile software development, agile project management, and evolutionary development have been proven and demonstrated to be highly successful. Are these now preferred in our organization?

  5. Governance, which encompasses all of the decision making and project management for an application, begins with business case development. Does it really make sense to build this application?

  6. Rather than scope, cost, and schedule, exploration projects should be measured on vision, cost, and schedule. Did the project deliver a valuable product (implemented vision) to the customer?

  7. How can your organization arrange a new project if the management does not know when they will finish the current projects and when the employees will be free to take on a new project?

  8. Are there contextual conditions, such as the size of the project or nature of the task, that signal a better fit for agile versus traditional project management approaches?

  9. Do you have existing templates of procurement plans or evaluation plans for you to adapt, or will you be required to develop your own procurement plan and evaluation plan?

  10. If you were given the authority, what would you do in your organization to make it easier to learn from project work and share lessons learned with your team and others?
