    • Project Integration Management Summary 4
    • Project Integration ManagementProject integration Management includes the processes and activities needed toidentify, define, combine, unify, and coordinate the various processes and projectmanagement activities within the Project Management Process Groups Groups.in the project management context, integration includes characteristics ofunification, consolidation artic lation and integrati e actions that are cr cial to nification consolidation, articulation, integrative crucialproject completion, successfully managing stakeholder expectations, and meetingrequirements.Project integration Management entails making choices about resource allocation,making trade‐offs among competing objectives and alternatives, and managing theinterdependencies among the project management Knowledge Areas Areas.
    • Project Integration Management ProcessesThe Project integration Management processes are as follows:4.1 Develop Project Charter‐The process of developing a document that formally authorizes a project or a phase and documenting initial requirements that satisfy the stakeholders stakeholder s needs and expectations.4.2 Develop Project Management Plan ‐The process of documenting the actions necessary to define, prepare, integrate, integrate and coordinate all subsidiary plans plans.4.3 Direct and Manage Project Execution‐The process of performing the work defined in the project management plan to achieve the projects objectives.
    • Project Integration Management Processes4.4 Monitor and Control Project Work‐The process of tracking, reviewing, and regulating the progress to meet the performance objectives defined in the project management plan.4.5 Perform Integrated Change Control‐The process of reviewing all change requests, approving changes, and managing changes to the deliverables organizational process deliverables, assets, project documents, and the project management plan.4.6 Close Project or Phase‐The process of finalizing all activities across all of the Project Management Process Groups to formally complete the project or phase.
    • Project Integration ManagementThe integrative nature of projects and project management can beunderstood by thinking of other types of activities performed whilecompleting a project.Examples of some activities performed b the project management team l f f d by hare:• Analyze and understand the scope. This includes the project and product requirements, criteria, assumptions, constraints, and other influences related to a project, and how each will be managed or addressed within the project. p j• Understand how to take the identified information and then brainstorm it into a project management plan using a structured approach.• Perform activities to produce project deliverables deliverables.• Measure and monitor all aspects of the projects progress and take appropriate action to meet project objectives.

    • Present Value (PV) and (NPV)• Present Value (PV)  Present Value of future Cash flows. Higher the better. Present Value (PV) – Present Value of future Cash flows. Higher the better.• NOTE: present value and NPV are only mention once or twice on the exam• You will not have to calculate it, nor know formula, just understand the concept• Amount of money is always more valuable sooner than later, as this enables to take advantage of  investment opportunities.• Higher PV more preferable project. A potential investment project is selected, if value of NPV is  >= ZERO• PV = FV / (1 + i) n• Example:• Project X is expected to make $50,000 in two years. Project Y is expected to make  to $80,000 in three years. If the cost of capital is 5 percent, which project to choose?• Using PV formula, PV = FV / (1 + i) n , PV for Project X is $69,107 and Project Y is $45,351.• Project Y will return the highest investment to the company and should be chosen over Project X.
    • Net Present Value Example p Note that oe a totals are equal, but NPVs are not because of the time value of money y
    • Internal Rate of Return (IRR)• This is just another way of interpreting the benefit from the project. This is just another way of interpreting the benefit from the project.• It looks at the cost of the project as the capital investment and translates the profit into the  interest rate over the life of that investment. • Calculations for IRR are not part of this certification. It is enough if you understand that the  greater the value for IRR, the more beneficial the • Example:• You have two projects to choose from: Project A with an IRR of 21%, or project B with an IRR of  15%, which once you prefer?• Answer: Project A.
    • Benefit Cost Ratio• This is the value obtained by dividing the benefit by the cost.• The greater the value, the more attractive the project  The greater the value, the more attractive the project• A benefit cost ration >1 means the benefit are grater than the cost• A benefit cost ration <1 means the cost are grater than the benefit• A benefit cost ration =1 means the benefit are equal the cost• For example, if the projected cost of producing a product is 10,000$, and you expect to sell it for  40,000$,  40 000$ then the BCR is equal to 40,000$/10,000$, which is equal to 4. For the benefit to exceed cost, the  BCR must be greater than 1.Example:If BCR of project A is 2.3, and the BCR of project B is 1.7, which project would you select?Answer : Project A
    • Payback Period • The payback period is the length of time required to recover the initial cash outlay on the project.• For example, if a project involves a cash outlay of 600,000$ and generates cash inflows of.  For example, if a project involves a cash outlay of 600,000$ and generates cash inflows of. 100000$, 150000$, 150000$ and 200000$ in the first, second, third and fourth years respectively, • its pay back period is 4 years because the sum of cash flows during the four years is equal to the  initial outlay. According to the payback criterion,  i iti l tl A di t th b k it i• the shorter the payback period, the more desirable the project.• Payback period = cost of period or investment / Annual cash flow• Example:• You have two projects to choose from , Project A with payback period of 6 months or project B  with payback period of 18 months, which one would you prefer?• Answer : Project A Answer : Project A
    • Charting the Payback Period
    • Economic Value Added (EVA)• Economic Value Added (EVA) – Value added to organization by the project• Economic value should rarely appear in questions or choices  Economic value should rarely appear in questions or choices
    • Opportunity Cost.• Opportunity cost (opportunity lost) is the NPV of the next best project, you are not doing,  because you have decided to invest in a project.• Let us assume that you have 100,000 rupees and you are investing this money in project ‘A’,  whose NPV=200,000 and because of this you are unable to do project ‘B’, whose NPV=150,000 or  project ‘C’, whose NPV = 120,000, then the opportunity cost is 150,000, which is the NPV of  project  B , which is the next best option after  A . project ‘B’, which is the next best option after ‘A’.• Example:• You have two projects to choose from: Project A with an NPV of 45,000$, or project B with an NPV  of 85,000$, what Is the opportunity cost of selecting project B ? $• Answer : 45,000$
    • Sunk Cost• Sunk Cost – Cost already incurred. This should not be taken into account while taking  decision.• Are expended costs; accounting standards that sunk costs should not be considered  when deciding whether to continue with a troubled project.Example :You have project with an initial budget of 1,000,000 $ , you are halfway through the  project and have spend 2,000,000 $, do you consider the 1,000,000 $ over budget  when determining whether to continue with the project.• Answer: NO, the money spent is gone
    • Law of Diminishing return• Law of Diminishing return – After a point, adding more  resources will not have proportional benefit.• Example: • A single programmer may produce at 1 module per hour. With  second a programmer the two may produce 1.75 module/ hour.  With third programmer, the group may produce 2.25 modules/  With third programmer, the group may produce 2.25 modules/ hour  
    • Working Capital• Working Capital – Current assets minus current liabilities.The amount of money the company has available to invest, including investmentin project
    • Depreciation• Depreciation Assets loose value over useful life Depreciation – Assets loose value over useful life.• Depreciation methods based on time D i ti th d b d ti Straight line method Declining balance method Declining balance method Sum‐of‐the‐years‐digits method Depreciation based on use (activity)
    • Straight line depreciation• Depreciation = (Cost  Residual value) / Useful life Depreciation = (Cost ‐ Residual value) / Useful life [Example, Straight line depreciation] On April 1, 2011, Company A purchased an equipment at the cost of  $140,000. This equipment is estimated to have 5 year useful life. At the end of the 5th  year, the salvage value (residual value) will be $20,000. Company A recognizes  depreciation to the nearest whole month. Calculate the depreciation expenses for  depreciation to the nearest whole month. Calculate the depreciation expenses for 2011, 2012 and 2013 using straight line depreciation method. Depreciation for 2011 = ($140,000 ‐ $20 000) 1/5 9/12 $18 000 ($140 000 $20,000) x 1/5 x 9/12 = $18,000 Depreciation for 2012 = ($140,000 ‐ $20,000) x 1/5 x 12/12 = $24,000 ( ) Depreciation for 2013 = ($140,000 ‐ $20,000) x 1/5 x 12/12 = $24,000

    • Strategic Planning & Project Selection• Strategic planning involves determining long‐term objectives,  predicting future trends, and projecting the need for new  products and services• Organizations often perform a SWOT analysis – A l i St Analyzing Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats th W k O t iti d Th t • Very important to have managers from outside the IT dept assist in the  planning process as they can help to understand organizational  strategies and identify the business areas that support them i d id if h b i h h• As part of strategic planning, organizations: – Identify potential projects Identify potential projects – Use realistic methods to select which projects to work on – Formalize project initiation by issuing a project charter 29
    • Develop Project CharterProjects are authorized by someone external to the project such as a sponsor,PM0, or portfolio steering committee.The project initiator or sponsor should be at a level that is appropriate tofunding the project.They will either create the project charter or delegate that duty to the projectmanager.The initiators signature on the charter authorizes the project.ProjectsP j t are authorized d t i t th i d due to internal b i l business needs or external i fl d t l influences.This usually triggers the creation of a needs analysis, business case, ordescription of the situation the project will address.Chartering a project links the project to the strategy and ongoing work of theorganization.
    • 4.1.1 Develop Project Charter: lnputs.1 Project Statement of Work: 1 .  The statement of work (SOW) is a narrative description of products or services to be delivered by the project. For internal projects, the project initiator or sponsor provides p j , p j p p the statement of work based on business needs, product, or service requirements. For external projects, the statement of work can be received from the customer as part of a bid document, for example, request for proposal, request for information, request for bid, or as part of a contract.
    • 4.1.1 Develop Project Charter: lnputsThe SOW references:• Business need: An organizations business need may be based on a organization s market demand, technological advance, legal requirement, or government regulation.• Product scope description: This documents the characteristics of the product that the project will be undertaken to create.• Strategic plan: AII projects should support the organizations strategic goals. The strategic plan of the performing organization should be considered as a factor when making project selection decisions and prioritization prioritization.
    • 4.1.1 Develop Project Charter: lnputsThe business case is created as a result of one or more of the following:• Market demand (e.g., a car company authorizing a project to build more fuel-efficient cars in response to gasoline shortages),• Organizational need (e.g., a training company authorizing a project to create a new course to increase its revenues),• Customer request (e.g., an electric utility authorizing a project to build a new substation to serve a new industrial park) park),• Technological advance (e.g,, an electronics firm authorizing a new project to develop a faster cheaper and smaller laptop after ad ances in comp ter memor and faster, cheaper, advances computer memory electronics technology),
    • 4.1.1 Develop Project Charter: lnputs• Legal requirement (e g a paint manufacturer authorizing a project t0 establish (e.g., guidelines for handling toxic materials),• Ecological impacts (e.g., a company undertakes a project to lessen its environmental impact),or• Social need (e.g., a non-governmental organization in a developing country authorizing a project to provide potable water systems to communities suffering from high rates of cholera). g )
    • 4.1.1 Develop Project Charter: lnputs.3 Contract: • A contract is an input if the project is being done for an external customer customer..4 Enterprise Environmental Factors: p • The enterprise environmental factors that can influence the Develop Project Charter process include, but are not limited to: • Governmental or industry standards, • 0rganization infrastructure and infrastructure, • Marketplace conditions
    • 4.1.1 Develop Project Charter: lnputs.5 Organizational Process Assets: 5 • The organizational process assets that can influence the Develop Project Charter process include, but are not limited to: • organizational standard processes, policies, and standardized process definitions for use in the organization; • Templates (e.g., project charter template); and • Historical information and lessons learned knowledge base.
    • 4.1.2 Develop Project Charter: Tools and Techniques.1 Expert Judgment: 1 • Expert judgment is often used to assess the inputs used to develop the project charter. • Such judgment and expertise is applied to any technical and management details during this process. Such expertise is available from many sources, including: • Other units within the organization, • Consultants, , • Stakeholders, including customers or sponsors, • Professional and technical associations, • industry groups groups, • Subject matter experts, and • Project management office (PM0).
    • 4.1.3 Develop Project Charter: OutputsThe project charter documents the business needs current needs,understanding of the customer’s needs, and the new product, service,or result that it is intended to satisfy, such as: • Project purpose or justification, • Measurable project objectives and related success criteria, • High‐level requirements, • High‐level project description, • High‐level risks, • Summary milestone schedule schedule, • Summary budget, • Project approval requirements (what constitutes project success, who decides the project is successful, and who signs off on the project), • Assigned project manager, responsibility, and authority level, and • Name and authority of the sponsor or person authorizing the project charter,
    • 4.2 Develop Project Management PlanDevelop Project Management Plan is the process ofdocumenting the actions necessary to define, prepare,integrate,integrate and coordinate all subsidiary plans plans.The project management plan defines how the project isexecuted, monitored and controlled, and closed. t d it d d t ll d d l dThe project management plan is developed through a seriesof integrated processes until project closure.This process results in a project management plan that isprogressively elaborated by updates and controlled andapproved through the Perform integrated ChangeControl (Section 4 5) process 4.5) process.
    • 4.2.1 Develop Project Management Plan: lnputs.1 P j t Ch t 1 Project Charter:.2 Outputs from Planning Processes: Outputs from many of the planning processes described p y p gp in Chapters 5 through 12 are integrated to create the project management plan. Any baselines and subsidiary management plans that are an output from other planning processes are inputs to this process. In addition, addition updates to these documents can necessitate updates to the project management plan.
    • 4.2.1 Develop Project Management Plan: lnputs.3 Enterprise Environmental Factors: 3 The enterprise environmental factors that can influence th D l i fl the Develop P j t M Project Management Pl t Plan Process include, but are not limited to: • Governmental or industry standards standards, • Project management information systems (e.g., an automated tool, such as a scheduling software tool, a configuration management system, an information collection and distribution system, or web interfaces to ot e o other online automated systems), e auto ated syste s), • Organizational structure and culture, infrastructure (e.g., existing facilities and capital equipment), and • Personnel administration
