3 Iterative Project Management / 02 - Controlling an Iterative Project © 2005 Ivar Jacobson International 0. Introductory Remarks Big point behind iterative development is this approach provides for enabling stakeholders to evaluate progress, replan, if necessary, and empowering management to take full control over projects maximizing the chances of success. Managing iterative projects is challenging because all of the disciplines: project management, requirements, analysis, design, implementation, and test are interleaved such that there are no real clear cut boundaries from one to the other. Very different from methodologies from the past that are still in large part subscribed to… This perceived inability to plan in accustomed ways can cause some to ‘retreat’ to waterfall style while citing this as proof that iterative approaches do not work Just like any other approach, we need training and practice.

4 Iterative Project Management / 02 - Controlling an Iterative Project © 2005 Ivar Jacobson International Introductory remarks – 2 Again, dividing a project into iterations provides much greater control over the project because it allows us to: explicitly manage risk within each iteration, and force each iteration to produce something tangible that can be tracked, quantified, and reported to senior management. Each iteration removes different risks in a planned manner and not haphazardly. The key is: knowing exactly what to do and when to do it, and how much of each discipline we need to employ in an iteration, and how to assess progress . Lets look at essential variables crucial to planning these iterations.

5 Iterative Project Management / 02 - Controlling an Iterative Project © 2005 Ivar Jacobson International I. Variables that Shape Projects: Key variables presented in most management books include: Scope, cost, and time, or Quality, cost, and time Our approach is to employ all four in a not-so-rigid ‘ square .’ First: look at the metrics (parameters) scope, quality, cost and time.

6 Iterative Project Management / 02 - Controlling an Iterative Project © 2005 Ivar Jacobson International Key variables – scope, quality, cost, and time Scope: All develop efforts have lists of requirements or features that need to be cranked into the application (new or redesigned into…) Generally speaking, this is the number of requirements (usually in terms of features or functions ) that the software must accommodate. These can be captured
