Ask Good Questions to Ensure Project Governance

questionsWhile it may sometimes feel like torture to get the right information, the truth is the right questions lead to the right answers;   that is, the answers that create a good project plan, governance, and management. Project Portfolio management does promote “doing the right work”, but establishing what exactly “the right work” is requires a series of questions to help you and your customer understand the decision. This post by Lynda Bourne lists some of the questions, including “Do we have the resources available to accomplish the selected projects” and “are we properly supporting out project teams to encourage success”. Some of the questions naturally go towards the client's response, while others are asked within your own organization. With a set of valuable questions, you can be assured that a lack of information won't result in poor project governance.
