STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 966 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Software Project Manager improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 966 standard requirements:
- Are the data and associated software produced and/or used in the project accessible and in what modalities, scope, licenses (e.g. licensing framework for research and education, embargo periods, commercial exploitation, etc.)?
- How do you merge agile, lightweight processes with standard industrial processes without either killing agility or undermining the time you have spent defining and refining your systems and software process assets?
- 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 your organization?
- Are the data and associated software produced and/or used in the project discoverable (and readily located), identifiable by means of a standard identification mechanism (e.g. digital object identifier)?
- Does it replace or negate traditional project management concerns with risk, scheduling, metrics, and execution, or does it shift how you think about these and necessitate new techniques and approaches?
- While the project might have sufficient funds for the acquisition of required Hardware, software or COTS solution, does it have sufficient funding for any additional specialized tasks?
- Key problem solving knowledge resides with the knowledge workers, and not the manager. So, how do you adapt project management techniques to deal with this key reality?
- Assess the adequacy of maintenance project management standards, methodologies, and practices. Does your organization have adequate maintenance standards and controls?
- Projects should consider the costs of implementing the software beyond its initial costs. Does your computer hardware exceed the minimum requirements of the software?
- Risk management: describe the risks associated with the project or associated agreement. what contingencies have been built in to mitigate the already stated risks?
