NeIC is carrying out a project analysis exercise in 2017q2, for quality assurance and continuous improvement of NeIC as an organization.

Type: Project

Duration: 2017-03-17 -- 2017-06-30

Lead: User:Joel Hedlund


  • Develop a framework for lightweight project analysis that is usable also for operations.
  • Discover good working practices and bring them into the spotlight.
  • Assess structure and status of ongoing activities.
  • Deliver deviation lists to XT/activities for follow-up.


  • Base work on PPS project analysis materials, and adapt to NeIC needs for projects and operations.
  • Do it openly (probably: Google drive folder open for comments by all).
  • Do it as a matter of course. Do not wait until there is a problem.
  • Questionnaires and interviews with activity leads and owners.
  • Open invitation for spontaneous feedback from anyone involved in activities.
  • Document proposed actions to be followed up at later date.

Mitigation for compressed timeframe:

  • PPS recommends to have "2 or more experience project leads" doing Project review.
  • Develop materials in collaboration with a few pilots, then PPS, then the rest.
