Tools for Project Success

Let’s Have an Honest Conversation About PM 2.0

  1. Earned Value performance measurement used to measure physical percent complete
  2. Risk Management and the Risk Matrices for each deliverables
  3. A Work Breakdown Structure to describe what products or services are to be delivered
  4. A network schedule with the dependencies. Not the toy dependencies shown in the PM 2.0 list making tools, but real dependencies found in industrial strength scheduling tools
  5. Technical Performance Measures for each deliverable
