Book Description

From his years of experience and an exhaustive study of the program planning literature, Mitchell Springer has ascertained that the program planning process is made up of four key elements-program organization planning, schedule planning, cost planning, and performance planning. Program organization planning is the process that establishes the planning, program organizations, and the definition of the work to be performed. Schedule planning provides the time frame for resource allocation, establishes a baseline for the current status, and forecasts of completion dates for scheduled work. Cost planning establishes a preliminary budget to use to track and compare against actual costs. Performance planning is the identification and subsequent documentation of the technical performance requirements.
