Does a Project Manager need to understand
enough about the project before he/she can begin to create a Project Plan?
Should the completion of the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) analysis trigger
the start of time, cost, quality, risk and procurement planning?
PMBOK primarily focuses on the academic side of Project Management, which
leaves the connections between the WBS and project schedule difficult to
trace. It is often difficult to stress a more pragmatic, methodical
side, especially in planning. This presentation will describe the
advantages of Schedule Oriented Project Planning.
Schedule Oriented Project Planning stresses
that the completion of the WBS triggers the start of human resources and
time planning only. Once started, SOPP calls for the development
of the project schedule and considers this schedule a key component to
the rest of planning and the completion of the Project Management Plan.
SOPP tightens the dependencies between the WBS and the project schedule
and makes it easier to trace.
