    Scope, Schedule, and Resources – You can’t have them all

    Imagine the scene.  You are starting a new project.  At the kickoff meeting the stakeholder introduces the mission of the project, the business analyst hands out the requirements document, the project manager hands out the project plan, and the development manager gives his best “Do it for the Gipper” speech.  You look through the project plan and see that it specifies a release date (several months in the future), the resources that will be involved, major milestones to be met, and everyone’s assignments.

    Need to have a Cross Project Perspective?

    Our customers have been asking us for some way to have visibility across a number of projects at the same time. We also think this is a great idea!!! For that reason, we’ve dedicated our next release (targeted toward the end of January 2012) to providing cross-project views to our customers. Before we started development, we really wanted to understand “who” would want such views – overwhelmingly, customers have told us that cross project views would be great for team members as well as roles such as the development manager, whose responsibility is to govern many projects at the same ...
