Decision-based project management is a methodology developed to support the work of decision-makers in a project. Decision-based project management assumes that a driving force in projects are decisions. The activities in a project should focus on providing the necessary basis for these decisions.
The most important delivery in the planning phase is therefore to define:
- What decisions are to be made in the project?
- Who will make these decisions?
- When will these decisions be made?
These decisions will be the basis for managing the project in the implementation phase. The progress of the project is reported on the basis of which decisions have actually been made.
