Knowing what to do and when is what we need to do to survive large software projects

Wnuk, Krzysztof LU (2012) In [Publication information missing] p.1-2
Abstract
Successful projects require two key elements to be set: the time frame for the project and the scope of the project. Accurately deciding these two attributes greatly increases the probability of success. If, for example we would like to build a house, we should start building it in spring so that we can lie the foundations of the house on a non-frozen ground. Moreover, we know that we should be ready with the roof before the winter comes so that we can continue working inside the house. Knowing the time frame of our house project, we need to decide the actual size and shape of a house and other important elements. In other words, we need to decide the ‘scope’ of our house project.
