About Project Myopia #NoProjects

Consider the well known success troika for projects:

- On schedule delivery

- On budget delivery

- On quality delivery

Think about this list of criteria, can you see identify a problem with these criteria?

This particular project success troika dominates project thinking. But something is missing: value. These “success” criteria do not consider the importance of the value created by the project.

In a digital world business must develop software, the business must grow and the software must grow. The project model doesn't reflect this world because projects end. In the digital world both software and business are continual. So management needs a new model.

This books sets out the Continuous model of software development based on continuous work streams. Continuous Digital is a logical continuation of agile software development which enables continuous delivery.

 

The #NoProjects movement has successfully set out the problems with project thinking over the last three years but has rightly been criticised for not elaborating on what should replace the project model. This volume sets out to address that problem. This book focused on describing an alternative to projects and for completeness contains a critique of the project model.

This volume is divided four parts:

Part 1: An alternative

1. Omni present software

2. Software as an Asset

3. Higher purpose

4. Team-centric development

5. Work to be done

6. Value

7. Summarizing the alternative model

Part 2: Interlude

8. Diseconomies of scale

9. Diseconomies and risk

10. Living with diseconomies

11. Schedules

12. Time-value profiles and elastic deadlines

13. I need it yesterday!

14. Theory X,Theory Y and strategy

15. Planning

16. Piecemeal growth

Part 3: Teams

17. Devolved decision-making

18. Team strategy

19. Stable teams

20. Team life cycle

21. Team life cycle – another example

Part 4: Money

23. Continuous governance
