This chapter focuses on what the business executives need to authorize a project, and how to separate one project from another in terms of selecting the “best” project for the organization at the time. It explains what information is needed to get a project started, and how its scope is refined to prepare it for the development team. The project manager and business analyst must understand both the business management and development team perspectives to maintain the goals of both groups. Selecting a project is part of Region 2 of the project management domain—the organizational and project context, as described in the first chapter.

Region 1 is the technical core, where the project team designs, builds, and releases the software to operations. It is heavily execution-oriented, and agile practices center in that region. We will delve into that in Chapters 8 through 11. 9 Chapter 1 ■ Evolution of Project Management Region 2 is the more strategically oriented region. It is defined by the organizational structure and culture. It captures the front-end project definition stages, where concept and feasibility are considered, business alignment and return on investment (ROI) evaluated, the project is chartered (obtains a sponsor and authorization), and stakeholder management is started.

The product was installed by the IT department whether it was what the customer wanted or not. If the product was not want the customer wanted, and the customer had some clout, the product was not installed (or uninstalled) and the work, time, and money were wasted. • Technology diversification and redundancy. Two or more years could go by from initialization to release of a large application.
