ABSTRACT


Worksheet of Exogenous Variables that Impact the Success of Validation Stage of Product Delivery of a Project

Altino José Mentzingen de Moraes


In the theory presented by PMBoK© - Project Management Book of Knowledge the Project Management [1] features - among others - the Disciplines of Scope and Quality. The Discipline of Scope, to become effective, must provide the execution of a hypothetical step (not defined in its text but perceived by the present author of this paper) that can be termed as Planning Stage of Project Result. The Discipline of Quality, to become effective, must provide the execution of an also hypothetical step (also not defined in its text but also perceived by the same present author of this paper) that can be termed as Validation Stage of Product Delivery.In the theory presented by PMBoK© - Project Management Book of Knowledge the Project Management [1] features - among others - the Disciplines of Scope and Quality.

The Discipline of Scope, to become effective, must provide the execution of a hypothetical step (not defined in its text but perceived by the present author of this paper) that can be termed as Planning Stage of Project Result. The Discipline of Quality, to become effective, must provide the execution of an also hypothetical step (also not defined in its text but also perceived by the same present author of this paper) that can be termed as Validation Stage of Product Delivery.

The importance of both Stages is crucial to building a solution that complies with the expectations presented by Stakeholders in the Project Result (which, as already said, are recorded in the Discipline of Scope in accordance with the Planning Stage) and should meet the intended requirements of compliance in Product Delivery (which, as already said, are recorded in the Discipline of Quality in accordance with Validation Stage).

In the execution of Validation Stage of Product Delivery structured in the Discipline of Quality, which occurs immediately as predecessor of the placement of the solution built in Operational Phase Production is used, as reference to parameterize the expected quality, the degree of compliance with the requirements (Essential and/or Desirable) specified in the Planning Stage of Project Result structured in the Discipline of Scope.

Independently of the nature of the Project (if this is to execute a solution for the Civil Construction, Software Development, Product Implementation or others Areas), may be perceived some Exogenous Variables that interfere with the achievement with success of Validation Stage of Product Delivery structured in the Discipline of Quality.

The perception of these Exogenous Variables, which can interfere with Deadlines and Costs initially planned for the implementation of Validation Stage of Product Delivery, is the result of the accumulation of experiences throughout the professional career of more than 40 (forty) years of author this work in projects of various types, besides their additional Technical Certifications in the field of Project Management (PMP© - Project Management Professional/PMI© - Project Management Institute) and System Testing (CTFL© - Certified Tester Foundation Level/ISTQB© - International Software Testing Qualifications Board). As result of their assessments and surveys in this theme, the author identified and classified the Exogenous Variables perceived between 2 (two) Aspects, which are, the Circumstantial Aspects of the Project and the Specific Aspects of the Team. For each of the 2 (two) Aspects (which are defined in the text of this article in details), 3 (three) Topics are treated (and also defined in the same article with precision). This paper also presents an Information Collection Form entitled "Evaluation of Impacting Factors in Deadlines and Project Costs" that proposes percentages calculated in benchmarking (but, that can be reviewed according to the reality found), which enables also, and principally, be a checklist as confirmation of the occurrence of the points raised in this paper, so that even other decision-making, regarding the direction of the Project could be thought.
