What's a good project?

How often do you think about what a good project really means? What is good? Who decides if it is good, and when is it possible to establish if a project is good?

How Effective is your Communication?

It’s not easy to have effective communication. Many things can get into the way of effective communication; time zone, language, culture differences, having too much, not having enough, the wrong information, wrong timing, wrong audience, long email threads where the subject line has nothing to do with its content, etc. None of these are small problems and each of them alone can contribute…

How to develop easily prioritized requirements

There have been many articles written about requirements development from many perspectives. I happen to believe this is one of the hardest tasks of any project, and one of the key contributors to scope creep. As the initial scope statement is defined, everyone believes they understand it.

Death to the Postmortem

In a recent blog on stupid decisions, a reader asked about lessons learned processes. I had to defer the question since my reply would have been as long as the blog he was commenting on.
