Description
Content

A project is defined by cost, time and scope to deliver an output. That output may or may not become an outcome and increase the profit or the likelihood of achieving the goals of the organization. Whilst everyone agrees that greater Agility is essential to adapt the outcome of the project to changes in customer needs, when looking at ‘successes’ from a customer perspective we need to accept that success is not defined only by meeting cost, time or scope targets set for the project. This book is an analysis on some of the metrics used to measure projects in an attempt to resolve some of the shortcoming of traditional metrics, like Earned Value, Function Points and Story Points.
