What is and how can we use Rolling Wave Planning?

This blog post is a video.

Develop a Schedule Series

This is the third video in the short series on how to develop a schedule.

In the first video, we covered the process of scheduling, which are the steps to follow for any schedule development.

In the second video, we covered the action of scheduling across the stages; along the project life cycle.

Rolling Wave Planning

This video is related to the first two videos and somewhat similar to the second video since it covers scheduling across the project life cycle. However, in the video no 2 we presented the formal estimates that should be developed in various stages of the project life cycle. In this third video, we discuss the concept of continuous planning along the whole project life cycle, which we also know as rolling wave planning.

Where should you invest, in PMP certification or building tailored methods?

Over the years, SUKAD has been promoting that organizations should build their organizational project management system, including project management methodological approach. We also know that when it comes to PMP Certification; we are not only going against the popular trends and swimming against the PM Main Stream, we are moving against strong undercurrents; if not trying to break walls. In other words, one can only imagine the challenge. Yet, we believe that although the PMP still has value, PMOs, projects development, human resources, and organizational developments executives should consider investing into building tailored project management methodological approach rather than PMP certification.
