Project Planning is one of the most significant and crucial parts of Project Management. Planning depends on the Project Manager and project leads knowing how they drive the project. This often changes from project to project and team to team, so having a framework to enforce policies and best practice for the team to use becomes critical for the organizations.
The accuracy of Project Planning mainly depends on:
– How well the project goals are defined and understood by project team
– How well the activities and techniques are defined to achieve these goals thus optimizing your resources, cost, and schedule
These two factors vary by different types of projects which is explained in the graph below
