    Topic - "Approach to Translation and Localization Projects”


    Establishing the process of planning language translation projects to meet the demands of an international market. As the world becomes more global it becomes more compelling that we plan product, marketing, and software project launches to include the future of our localization and translation efforts.

    Topic – "The Recovery Machine: Metrics you need to recover your project


    Many holders of a PMP designation still cannot perform elementary calculations to get their project back on track. For example:

    Your client wants the project done on time with full scope and will pay for it. The project plan calls for 100 staff-months of work to be completed by 10 professionals working full-time for 10 months. At the end of 5 months, the original team has worked 50 staff months and completed 40 staff-months of planned work. How much additional staff do you request for month 6? (Fractional [part-time] staff is allowed and the correct answer is not 2.)

    [extra credit] At the end of month 8, 85 staff months of paid effort resulted in 75 staff months of completed planned work. How much total staff do you need for month 9?

    Come learn several handy new metrics to help you quickly get started on the best path to recovering your project!
