Bridging the PM/Management Gap

I like the title of Sanjay Saini’s post on the lack of communication between project managers and senior management — “Make the Effort.” One can quibble with his specific suggestions, but his exhortation to communication more regularly, frequently,and transparently is right on:

Reviewing progress and profitability should not be something that waits until year’s end. Instead there should be some monthly or quarterly checkpoints in between. This regular communication should also include client feedback–both good and bad.

    In the IMP/IMS paradigm the “balance sheet” view is assessed every month through the Contract Performance Report (CPR).
    This is the basis of the portfolio view of a large defense program, with possibly dozens of concurrent programs.
