Software Project Poker: Should We Keep Betting or Fold?

Payson Hall, Catalysis Group Inc

Software projects are like stud poker hands-all have great potential at the beginning, additional information becomes available as they progress, and it's hard to remain detached from the emotion of the game. The goal of an interim project review is to offer an independent analysis of the current state of a project and a pragmatic assessment of the project's chances of success or likelihood of failure. Learn the steps for performing an objective project assessment, getting the facts, and keeping emotions in check. Find out how to determine if a project can be saved or if it should be stopped. See examples of how to effectively present bad news to executives who might be tempted to throw good money after bad.
