  • Specific references which explain some of this in more detail in a way I think is helpful are:

To Do Now

  • Check you really understand the terminology in this chapter. If possible discuss the terminology with one or two colleagues. Do you understand concepts like the dimensions of the project?

  • If you are unsure about any of the terminology, think about the last project you were involved in (whether or not it was formally called a project):

    • What were the deliverables from the project?

    • What were the five dimensions of the project?

    • How could you have traded off between them to get a better result than you did?

    • Write down a lifecycle for any project of this type.
