Ch 2. Organizations, constrains, and projects
Organizations: Functional -> Weak Matrix -> Balanced Matrix -> Strong Matrix -> Projected Operational Work: Which has no beginning and has no end. Stackholders are impacted by your project. A stackholder is anyone who is affected either positively or negatively by the cost, time, scope, resources, quality, or risk of your project. It's possible to "turn around" a negative stackholder. Project constrains: Time , Cost, Scope, Resources, Quality, Risk All six of the constrains are related to each other. There is almost never an easy, obvious trade-off where you can sacrifice one to improve the others. A portfolio charter will give the business goal that a group of projects and programs will accomplish as part of a portfolio. A program is a group of projects that should be managed together because of interdependencies.
