3 - 3 - Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 4 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen Contents of the lecture We will take a closer look at: Planning Resourcing/Estimating How to estimate resources –Politically-based approaches –Method based approaches Budgeting Thinking about contingency and risk Mobilising Projects in the real world - common practical issues to overcome

4 - 4 - Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 4 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen Planning: different levels of detail Project start finish Milestone 1 start Milestone 2Milestone 3 finish start finish Milestone 2Milestone 3 Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 start finish At any level of a project there are processes for: Initiating (starting) Planning Controlling Executing (doing) Closing (finishing)

8 - 8 - Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 4 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen Design and implementation - dependencies The project manager’s job will be very different here if the person deciding in the two red processes is the same or two different people

9 - 9 - Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 4 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen Key planning processes Scope Success criteria Requirements What needs to be done? In what order? How long does it take? What needs to be done by whom? How much does it cost?

14 Resources: how to estimate

15 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 4 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen Estimate: definitions estimate : an approximate calculation of quantity or degree or worth; "an estimate of what it would cost"; "a rough idea how long it would take" Estimation is the cheapest and least accurate form of modelling. This is where an educated guess is taken as to the performance of a specific scenario. Estimation allows the project manager to plan for the resources required for project execution through establishing the number and size of tasks that need to be completed in the project. wps.prenhall.com/wps/media/objects/505/517554/glossary.html
