A recap on my series of six blogs around project scope.  Includes links to slide deck and customizable templates:

1 of 6 —  Scope or:  How to manage projects for organization success, part 1

The ability to deliver a project is the ability to compete. Scope kills projects and projects that are not delivered kill organizations. Scope is one of the most important ways to manage project success. And when projects succeed, organizations succeed.

The key for organizations to grow and to thrive relies on how to manage projects and how to manage projects for organization success becomes an industry competitive advantage. But why do so many projects fail?

An impact analysis unearths the layers and levels that the change will effect. Just like tossing a pebble into a pond, projects cause ripples that are carried far beyond the initial splash.

4 of 6 — Scope or:  How to manage projects for organization success; stakeholder analysis template

The only way to manage projects for organization success is to identify and manage the stakeholders that the project impacts. A stakeholder is anyone [or any group] who can positively or negatively affect the outcome of the project.

5 of 6 — Scope or:  How to manage projects for organization success; communications template

Without communication projects become a public relations campaign and change management relies on hope.  Plan for the portfolio, the program, or the project and all the workstreams, channels, and measurement of impact with the a proper communication template.

6 of 6 — Impact Analysis — project management SharePoint template

The past year I modified the above suite of project templates from Microsoft Excel to Microsoft SharePoint, an integrated collaboration and publishing tool.

SharePoint is a great collaboration tool to improve project management experience. I now offer the old set of Excel scope templates to anyone using SharePoint, as well as new opportunity register and change management tools within SharePoint.
