Glen Alleman suggests that you download this and put it to work on projects. However, for some the defense focus and jargon are daunting or off putting. My suggestion for putting this guidance to work: first transform the tables into a checklist or two.
- The “validity” topic focuses you on whether a plan is ready for “prime time”. Use this when evaluating early stage gates.
- The “effective” items are obviously relevant as one evaluates the quality of your projects’ execution. These items should be a part of regular status reporting.
Then learn what “level of effort” means!
