Basics of Program Management in numbers and Pictures
10 basics for a PM are:
- scope: what in scope and what not.
- cost: budget and bill of material cost
- schedule: milestone, start, and end. Often most important KPI for PM
- resources: the most important is the human resource but also includes tools
- risks: the key for being the better PM.
- quality: link with the scope closely. “Don’t ship junk”
- communication: PM shall spend more than half your time in this. Sync and align.
- procurement: leverage the ecosystem and don’t reinvent the wheel.
- stakeholder management: find out who they are and influence them without power.
- integration: put all together, find the balance and do the trade-off.
