SMART Project Management

tipps zum handeln mit binären optionen SMART Requirements_webOver the past decade, I have managed many projects that have a common flaw.  The scope and project requirements were often missing critical information or wrong.  This is a widespread issue that I have seen on hundreds of software development projects posted online.  As the project owner, it is your responsibility to ensure the project is properly defined before any design or development is started.

Most projects have over 30% rework throughout project development.  This slip results in missed deadlines, insufficient payments, poorly written code, and an output that is less than desired.  Spending comparatively little time up front developing S.M.A.R.T. project specifications and requirements will result in less rework and a better product.

 

How to write SMART requirements

Specific

http://rozenhout.nl/rozenhout-meubel-op-maat-utrecht/meubelmaker-utrecht-contact/Stageplaatsen.html The criterion stresses the need for a specific goal rather than a more general one. This means the goal is clear and unambiguous; without vagaries and platitudes.  To make goals specific, they must tell a team exactly what’s expected, why it’s important, who’s involved, where it’s going to happen and which attributes are important.

A specific goal will usually answer the five ‘W’ questions:

  • What: What do I want to accomplish?
  • Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
  • Who: Who is involved?
  • Where: Identify a location.
  • Which: Identify requirements and constraints.

Measurable

The thought behind this is that if a goal is not measurable it is not possible to know whether a team is making progress toward successful completion. Measuring progress is supposed to help a team stay on track, reach its target dates and experience the exhilaration of achievement that spurs it on to continued effort required to reach the ultimate goal.

  • How much?
  • How many?
  • How will I know when it is accomplished?
  • Indicators should be quantifiable

Achievable

Whilst an attainable goal may stretch a team in order to achieve it, the goal is not extreme. That is, the goals are neither out of reach nor below standard performance, since these may be considered meaningless. When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills and financial capacity to reach them. The theory states that an attainable goal may cause goal-setters to identify previously overlooked opportunities to bring themselves closer to the achievement of their goals.

  • How can the goal be accomplished?
  • How realistic is the goal based on other constraints?

Relevant

A bank manager’s goal to “Make 50 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by 2pm” may be specific, measurable, attainable and time-bound but lacks relevance. Many times you will need support to accomplish a goal: resources, a champion voice, someone to knock down obstacles. Goals that are relevant to your boss, your team, your organization will receive that needed support.

  • Does this seem worthwhile?
  • Is this the right time?
  • Does this match our other efforts/needs?
  • Are you the right person?
  • Is it applicable in the current socio-economic environment?

Time-bound

A commitment to a deadline helps a team focus their efforts on completion of the goal on or before the due date. This part of the SMART goal criteria is intended to prevent goals from being overtaken by the day-to-day crises that invariably arise in an organization. A time-bound goal is intended to establish a sense of urgency.

A time-bound goal will usually answer the question

  • When?
  • What can I do six months from now?
  • What can I do six weeks from now?
  • What can I do today?
