John McIntyre on the pros and cons of using averages, and a different view on stakeholder segmentation
Show Notes

In this episode, John McIntyre (https://www.linkedin.com/in/johnmcintyrepmo/) warns us to be careful when using averages to work out project durations (and explains how they are more useful at project level than task level).

He also advises us to consider segmenting stakeholders using whatever criteria are useful to the project in hand, and reminds us that using averages to calculate durations can be very effective in the right circumstances (e.g. when considering programmes or portfolios).

Sharing short, sharp, project lessons interviews like this is just one of the pragmatic pointers that Ken Burrell recommends in his book “Learning lessons from Projects: How it works, why it goes wrong, and how it you can do it better”, available from Amazon http://bit.ly/KensLLBook
