- Good point, Bill, but I would contend that we really don't know the extent of the exemption until such time that the OMB and the policy council both determine what's "Substantially similar" to the intent of the law. They'll be making the call on that, and that is the proverbial crap shoot. But your point is well taken.carlprJanuary 2, 2017
- Carl, you misstated the impact of the PMIAA (S.1550) on the Dept of Defense. It says: "The bill exempts the Department of Defense (DOD) from such provisions to the extent that they are substantially similar to: (1) federal provisions governing the defense acquisition workforce; or, (2) policy, guidance, or instruction of DOD related to program management." You included "Defense" just like the other Federal agencies.Bill RugglesJanuary 2, 2017
- Wow! What great points! The act simply says they have to put practice in place that are in keeping with commercial and Federal best practice, which could be a hole they could drive a truck through. OR, implemented by a zealot, they could be a vise that traps Federal PMs. It will be compelling to see how it plays out. And it will also be compelling to watch the PMIOs who turn the act into practice. Great points, sir.carlprJanuary 2, 2017
- Where does it impose actual best practices? A real WBS , schedule and EVM for example? Down to the work package level? if it doesn't - it's useless. And simply deferring to PMI is a mistake. They punted on best practices and made them optional years ago so they could cater to Commercial IT $.Michael DeKortJanuary 2, 2017
- Very good article. I agree that the Agile does not have a good grip on the risk management process.Lanny WingroveApril 20, 2016
