3 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 3 OpenUP Project Plan – Definition Brief description This artifact gathers all information required to manage the project. Its main part consists of a coarse-grained plan, containing project phases and milestones. Purpose The purpose of the Project Plan is to provide a central document where the any project team member can find the information on how the project will be managed.

4 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 4 OpenUP Project Plan – Implied Content Project constraints Scope and duration Measurements Phases and milestones Number, length, and objectives of iterations Staffing Development process Implied content based on steps of Task: Plan the Project

5 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 5 OpenUP Project Plan – Observations Implied content does not match current template Updating template already in Bugzilla Really do not have an OpenUP Project Plan for EPF project Development plan is close Doesnt appear to have been maintained Didnt we add another iteration? Iteration goals dont quite line up any more; some should be removed (i.e. agile stuff)

6 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 6 OpenUP Project Plan – Observations Put iteration goals in project plan Similar to what is in current development plan for each milestone Put iteration objectives in iteration plans Based on premise that goals are more abstract and coarse- grained than objectives Should OpenUP have a release planning element? Should we rename the step in Task: Plan the Project Plan project scope and duration to Plan releases?

7 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 7 OpenUP Iteration Plan – Definition Brief description This artifact is a fine-grained plan describing the objectives of a given iteration and how they will be evaluated. It contains a list of work assignments for the particular iteration. Purpose Facilitating the communication of the goals, objectives, tasks and assignment for a given iteration.

8 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 8 OpenUP Iteration Plan – Implied Content Objectives (high-level tasks or goals) Related to risks, timebox, requirements Iteration tasks (smaller tasks) Allocated work items Elements to test Implied content based on steps of Task: Initiate Iteration and Task: Plan Iteration

9 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 9 OpenUP Iteration Plan – Observations Implied content does not match current template Mixes objective and task as same thing Updating template already in Bugzilla How to the items in the iteration plan relate to EPF metamodel elements? Are they activities, tasks, steps, descriptors, etc??? There appear to not be any iteration plans for EPF project

10 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 10 OpenUP Work Items List – Definition Brief description This artifact contains all work that has to be done in project. Purpose To collect all work that has to be done in a project, so work can be prioritized and effort estimated.

11 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 11 OpenUP Work Items List – Implied Content Name Type Priority Estimate Release Implied content based on Artifact: Work Items List

12 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 12 OpenUP Work Items List – Observations Appears that this is a collection of requirements and change requests and tasks However, it is not the requirements or the change requests It is a convenient place to prioritize them Used to assign work to individual team members for specific iterations Perhaps work items are assignable tasks related to requirements and change requests What do we do with tasks that arent related to requirements or change request (such as process-related tasks like project planning and establishing a development environment)? Should we just call this the task list?

13 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 13 OpenUP Work Items List – Observations Appears that Bugzilla is the work item list for EPF project However, some items need to be broken down into more fine- grained item For example, #146662: All disciplines: no discipline text might need to be broken into smaller items, one for each discipline Perhaps All disciplines will have explanatory text is the detailed requirement and the items for each discipline are the work items There are no detailed requirements for EPF project documented anywhere There are change requests (and a lot of them for missing requirements)

14 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 14 Scrum Product Backlog – Definition The Product Backlog is the master list of all functionality desired in the product Product Owner prioritizes the items in the Product Backlog Team determines which items they can complete during the coming Sprint The team then moves items from the Product Backlog to the Sprint Backlog In doing they expand each Product Backlog item into one or more Sprint Backlog tasks so they can more effectively share work during the Sprint A very interesting prospect is expressing Scrum backlog items in the form of Extreme Programming's User Stories. From Mike Mountain Goat Software

16 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 16 Scrum Product Backlog – Observations As it is defined as a list of all product capabilities, it seems as these are the product requirements OpenUP Features, Use-Case Model, and Supporting Requirements (and/or perhaps scenarios) are same as Scrum Product Backlog Items on product backlog are decomposed into smaller tasks on sprint backlog Implies product backlog items and sprint backlog items are not the same thing, but related In certain situation a single product backlog item may become a single sprint backlog items, but this may be the exception, not the rule Supports idea than an OpenUP work item is one or many tasks related to implementing a requirement or change request

17 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 17 Scrum Sprint Planning and Assessment Collectively the Scrum Team and the Product Owner define a "Sprint Goal," which is a short description of what the sprint will attempt to achieve The success of the sprint will later be assessed during the Sprint Review Meeting against the Sprint Goal, rather than against each specific item selected from the Product Backlog During the Sprint Review Meeting the project is assessed against the Sprint Goal determined during the Sprint Planning Meeting Ideally the team has completed each task planned for the sprint but it is more important that they achieve the overall goal of the sprint Implies a distinction between iteration goals/objectives and tasks

18 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 18 Scrum Sprint Backlog – Definition The Sprint Backlog is the list of tasks that the Scrum Team is committing that they will complete in the current Sprint Items on the Sprint Backlog are drawn from the Product Backlog by the team based on the priorities set by the Product Owner and the team's perception of the time it will take to complete the various features

20 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 20 Scrum Sprint Backlog – Observations Appears to not be prioritized Only the Product Backlog is prioritized Sprint tasks inherent the priority from their related backlog items?

21 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 21 Scrum Burndown Burndown is a trend report showing the amount of work remaining for a period of time Release burndown Shows amount of work remaining based on points – measure of requirements coverage based on scope and complexity Sprint burndown Shows amount of work remaining based on time estimates of allocated tasks

23 EPF Project Management Review Copyright © , Armstrong Process Group, Inc., and others All rights reserved 23 Overall Observations Requirements are the product backlog For OpenUP most of the functional detailed requirements are the process elements Work items are the tasks for an iteration (sprint backlog) Based on requirements, change requests, and process tasks Still need a separate iteration plan for objectives, risks, and test cases Project plan contains iteration goals, but not detailed iteration objectives Consider adding releases to project plan
