How to justify the gap between the initial estimate and the actual Project?

How can you justify the gap between the initial estimate and the actual Project when almost all projects developed in the last decade have been done in Agile mode, which is a good thing because short delivery cycles are implemented, which implies a better communication with the Customers.

This management approach works like a charm with IT people who understand the impact of this management philosophy in terms of cost, time, and scope on a project: fixed time and cost with variable scope.

Plan Management vs Value Management

However, while developers and IT teams have a good grasp of the subtleties of Agile, this is far from always being the case for other Managers and Senior Management for whom, everything should be fixed: time, cost, and scope!!!


gestion du temps des ressources

Do you use Timesheets in your company?

Do you use Timesheets or not in your company?

There are 2 philosophies of Resource Management in Service organizations; either to manage employee time with Timesheets or not.

The choice is clear for certain types of organizations that bill hours to their clients such as law firms and consultants.

However, in many other sectors, such as companies that place or subcontract resources with their clients, they can bill by the week or month for the total number of resources placed. One can also imagine the same case for companies that develop software that they sell under license; for which the need to compile the hours of employees is less obvious or not necessary.
