Mapping GSD and PMBOK Guide

  1. 1. Paper Presentation Global Software Development –Coordination and Project Management Strategies from a Vendor Perspective (Deshpande Sadhana, Sarah Beecham, and Ita Richardson) Achmad Giovani 13508073
  2. 2. Outline The Topic Motivation for the Topic Introduction Theoretical basis Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide Conclusion Things that I learned
  3. 3. The Topic The paper is about:comparative analysis between the human resource management techniques of the PMBOK® Guide with the coordination practices in GSD
  4. 4. Motivation For the Topic One of the main cause of GSD Projects failure is bad project management The PMBOK Guide is not enough Coordination is essential for team project
  5. 5. Introduction
  6. 6. Introduction Software development has become increasingly distibuted across the globe
  7. 7. Introduction (2) Distance matters ◦ Exterior ◦ Interior
  8. 8. Introduction (3) Management of GSD project is difficult
  9. 9. Introduction (4) Communication, coordination, culture and control issues ◦ Coordination >> human resource management >> PMBOK® Guide, 2008
  10. 10. Theoretical Basis
  11. 11. Theoretical Basis Coordination ◦ one of the very difficult aspects of software engineering ◦ has four main components:  Goals  Activities  Actors  Interdependencies
  12. 12. Theoretical Basis (2) PMBOK® Guide, 2008 ◦ A recognized standard for project management ◦ there are five sections:  Human resource management  Communications management  Scope management  Cost management  Quality management
  13. 13. Theoretical Basis (3) Project human resource management includes “the processes that organise, manage and lead the project teams”

  20. 20. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(6)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide performed by GSD teams ◦ Cultural Differences
  21. 21. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(7)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide performed by GSD teams ◦ Team Performance Assessments
  22. 22. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(8)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide performed by GSD teams ◦ Recognition and Rewards
  23. 23. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(9)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide not performed by GSD teams
  24. 24. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(10)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide not performed by GSD teams ◦ Organisational charts
  25. 25. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(11)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide not performed by GSD teams ◦ Staff acquisition and management plan
  26. 26. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(12)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide not performed by GSD teams ◦ Resource Calendar
  27. 27. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(13)  Activities in the PMBOK® Guide not performed by GSD teams ◦ Roles & Responsibilities
  28. 28. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(14)  Activities not in the PMBOK® guide performed by GSD teams
  29. 29. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(15)  Activities not in the PMBOK® guide performed by GSD teams ◦ Onsite Coordinators
  30. 30. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(16)  Activities not in the PMBOK® guide performed by GSD teams ◦ Bridging Bridging
  31. 31. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(17)  Activities not in the PMBOK® guide performed by GSD teams ◦ Management of Attrition
  32. 32. Mapping GSD and PMBOK® Guide(18)  Activities not in the PMBOK® guide performed by GSD teams ◦ Task Allocation
  33. 33. Conclusion
  34. 34. Conclusion The PMBOK Guide scope is limited when applied to GSD Project Management A structured set of standards which focus specifically on GSD is needed There are coordination activites that not in the PMBOK Guide but important in practices:  Onsite Coordinator: help to manage cultural diversity  Bridging: the way to manage cultural diversity  Managing Attrition: can help to take necessary step to overcome attrition  Task Allocation: help to motivate project member
  35. 35. Things that I Learned Reality is different to the theory The characteristics of GSD Project make it needs a structured set of activity that focus on GSD, including coordination The PMBOK Guide doesn’t talk much about coordination
  36. 36. Thank you Any Questions?
