Ms. Ganguli, I found your contribution on this particular subject matter interesting. Particularly, “organizations that have not deployed Six Sigma”…Because, these types of organizations’ perception of what project planning comprises; is not as sophisticated as the “specific” and “generic” goal statements you’ve mentioned.Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI) is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes. It can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. CMMI helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes (Carnegie Melon, 2006). Another interesting point about your Project Planning Process Area Matrix or Sigma Level- are these series of processes can be translated to Project Manager or Intuit. For example, when dealing with metrics such as schedule variance, effort variance…Levelling Gantt charts could be utilized to track progress. Hence, in many cases, the “trade-off analysis” can be killed in one stone, under this presumption. Another area I wanted to touch upon, was introducing risk management in the generic goal phase. Not only is this a practical approach to effective project management, but it is essential in today’s work climate. Furthermore, It appears that the architecture of this Project Planning Process Area Map, also examines risk at an additional level (Specific Practices), which allows the Process Owner and Project Manager to revisit and make appropriate edits to the WBS if appropriate.0
