Welcome back to the county. A project plus P K +0004 class. We are in less than 4.3, and we're gonna be covering the second part of the charts dashboards and these conversations. This is your instructor, Roberto Hilario.
00:19
Our key objective us before is to become familiar with the different visualization tools are used and how they can assist us.
00:29
Do throughout the life cycle off a project.
00:34
Let's look at the 1st 1 key performance indicators,
00:38
even though this is not a chart
00:41
is that of a civilization is still a tool that is used to assess quality management and performance Over time.
00:53
KP eyes are the items that we decide to measure to show progress. Execution quality,
01:03
in fact, ability off a project or a task within a project.
01:10
KP I should be identified by five letters. They should be
01:17
selected based on how specific how clear and objective they are or simple they are. How easy are they to measure,
01:29
how attainable they would be,
01:32
how relevant to the success of the task for the project they would be
01:36
and that they have to be time circumscribed, just like any project at TV,
01:44
so K P eyes should be smart
01:48
in this is
01:49
another tool is the dashboard. The dashboard gives us an overview off different indicators on a single pane
01:59
or a single page.
02:00
You helps us see through
02:04
the
02:06
volume off information and consolidate all this
02:10
into specific items that can help us manage and detect deviations from our expected
02:19
progress So we could look at resource management. Could look at time management. We could look at budget. We could look at the different indicators in terms off quality that have been raised in terms of risk. All this could be part of a dashboard now, depending on the tool that we choose to use,
02:38
this may contain,
02:39
um, I need to great a dashboard that we could customize to feed the indicators that we like to highlight. Or it may be a fixed dashboard with all the indicators made available.
02:54
Although this is a less common practice.
02:59
Another tool is a camera on board. If we remember,
03:02
um, in section 4.1, Lesson 4.1, we mentioned Trailer
03:07
trailer is a type of tool that uses camp on boards. A camel board is basically a card based
03:15
tool that used for agile projects. And it's used to help visualize work, limit work in progress and maximize efficiency or flow
03:29
has to say before they used cards, columns and continuous improvement to help technology of service teams, for example, commit to the right amount of work and gated
03:40
done.
03:44
Another one is the activity diagram. The activity diagram is sort of a parallel of the GAN chart, but it is different in the sense that again is time oriented. Whereas the activity diagram is task oriented.
04:00
He gives us a better visual when he comes to the tasks the dependencies and enable Selves as project manager managers to identify critical paths without even using the pert charts.
04:15
Another interesting tool is the SWAT chart, the SWAT or the strength witnesses. Opportunities and threats is analysis that helps us indicate a visualized risk from a different perspective.
04:32
Strengths are witnesses are internal to the project to the company, to the team. Where's opportunities and threats are external to the team, the company or the project.
04:47
The idea of these tool is to help us highlight and identify the things that we know can help us succeed If we have the resources or that can help. That could hinder the project if we don't have the actual availability,
05:06
this will help us get organized and play to our strengths knowing, um, as they say sanju on the art of war. If you know that itself, you have no fear off the outcome off any battle. So
05:24
when you know yourself and when you know the enemy in this case of project
05:28
and the challenges of project percents, you can tackle them with, ah, better prediction in terms off Malcolm.
05:36
Finally, we have the racy chart. The racy chart is a visual representation off responsibilities off a project Racy stands for responsible, accountable consultant and informed. In this way, you can designate different team members
05:56
different stakeholders
05:58
to be part off the responsibility, the communication, the accountability off the project
06:04
responsible. For example, um,
06:08
individual is someone that is generally in charge of a project or a task, and this individuals they perform the tax. They execute the staffs in collaboration with other people. But they are the primary
06:24
responsible or principal for the results off the task and accountable individual is that are those are the ones also kind of principle for the results of the tests, even though they are not responsible for the for the task or the ones executing
06:44
the test.
06:46
A consultant individual are the ones that provide input, guidance or advice. Mint throughout tasks in terms off. If we should start now, if we should delay or or one knot, or which other resources we could restore to if our primary ones have been depleted
07:04
or are unavailable
07:06
and finally be informed individuals are those that want to know the results of the tests they are not concerned with who's executing, they're not concerned who's how is it being executed? They just want to know if it worked and why results where?
07:24
So with this, we complete our lesson and we have given an overview off the differently solicitation tools available for Project MACHIN.
07:34
Thank you and see you in the next one

Up Next

CompTIA Project+ (PK0-004)

The CompTIA Project+ course take students through a project’s lifecycle, introducing them to the knowledge and skills that are required to collaborate in project environments. Upon Completion, students will be prepared to pass the Project+ certification exam.
