Elements for a Successful Project Kickoff Meeting

I’ve tried to capture those key elements that in my experience make the meeting a success. No surprises – how to preach to the choir The first element that I can’t emphasize enough is, “No surprises”. There is nothing that can derail your agenda faster than having a project sponsor or stakeholder start asking questions because some element of the meeting or project doesn’t fit within their expectations. Key project members, especially project sponsors and stakeholders, should already know details.

The Kickoff Agenda – don’t get derailed It is always advisable, for any scheduled meeting, to have an agenda. Following the theme of no surprises it is a good idea to review the agenda with key meeting participants before the kickoff begins. The detailed topic areas below are a great start to your kickoff meeting agenda:

Use the quick links to scroll to a relevant section. PRINCE2 Definition PRINCE2 (an acronym for PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a de facto process-based method for effective project management. Used extensively by the UK Government, PRINCE2 is also widely recognised and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally. The PRINCE2 method is in the public domain, and offers non-proprietorial best practice guidance on project management. Key features of PRINCE2: Focus on business justification Defined organisation structure for the project management team Product-based planning approach Emphasis on dividing the project into manageable and controllable stages Flexibility that can be applied at a level appropriate to the project.

PRINCE2 History When PRINCE was launched in 1989, it effectively superseded PROMPT within Government projects. How PRINCE2 Can Benefit You or Your Organisation? PMBOK_Guide_5th_Errata_2ndPrinting. Agile Modeling and the Rational Unified Process (RUP) Agile Modeling (AM) is a practices-based software process whose scope is to describe how to model and document in an effective and agile manner.

Agile Modeling and the Rational Unified Process (RUP)

The practices of AM should be used, ideally in whole, to enhance other, more complete software process such as eXtreme Programming (XP), the Rational Unified Process (RUP), Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD), and the Enterprise Unified Process (EUP) to name a few. These processes cover a wider scope than AM, in the first three cases the development process and in the fourth the full software process including both development and production. Although these processes all include modeling and documentation activities, in one form or the other, there is definitely room for improvement.

With DAD the practices of AM are built right into the framework, with XP the modeling processes should be better defined, and with RUP modeling processes could definitely stand to be made more agile. How Modeling Works in the Unified Process Figure 2. Table 1. What Is Six Sigma? Six Sigma – what does it mean?

What Is Six Sigma?

“Six Sigma is a quality program that, when all is said and done, improves your customer’s experience, lowers your costs, and builds better leaders. — Jack Welch Six Sigma at many organizations simply means a measure of quality that strives for near perfection. Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects (driving toward six standard deviations between the mean and the nearest specification limit) in any process – from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service. The statistical representation of Six Sigma describes quantitatively how a process is performing. To achieve Six Sigma, a process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. The fundamental objective of the Six Sigma methodology is the implementation of a measurement-based strategy that focuses on process improvement and variation reduction through the application of Six Sigma improvement projects.
