Viewpoint

“Successful large software and IT program delivery requires a coherent team that can outperform obstacles and competitors. Building a coherent team depends on talented individuals working towards a commonly shared goal, with mutual trust and respect. To monitor progress towards a commonly shared goal, and to identify and remove roadblocks, some operational monitoring/metrics and efficiency are required. At the heart of successful software program management is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes–an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counter intuitive they may be, and rigorous operational analysis, to see if an idea is bringing the solution to life.”
