Topic::: “Software Project Health – Sense it!”


by Mr. Anantha Natarajan | Principal Consultant | PM Power Consulting

Synopsis :

  • In the age of digital disruption, assessing project status and forecasting outcomes needs newer approaches. We introduce the concept of “project health” – the capability of projects to deliver outcomes on a consistent basis.

    Project outcomes are no longer just about schedule, cost, quality and scope anymore but about customer experience, team satisfaction and delivery organization expectations, society expectations and so on.

    To get an early warning of potential issues that may impact outcomes, one needs to sense 360-degree perspectives of stakeholders and draw inferences. This presentation is about a “health” framework and how it can be used in assessing project health and forecasting outcomes.

    • Understand a new approach of assessing projects – based on sensing stakeholder perspectives, augmenting hard data from other project reporting systems
    • An opportunity to try out an online project health assessment tool called proFes360™
    • Gain an understanding of the evolution of the project health framework through browsing “Software Project Health – An Epic retold”, a business novel from PM Power Consulting
