Plan delivery

The purpose of this competency is to achieve the goals of delivery planning, i.e. to:

  • describe the objectives of the project, programme or portfolio;
  • define the work required to achieve the objectives and describe how it will be performed;
  • estimate the resources and finance needed to perform the work;
  • document the plans and update them throughout the life cycle.

  1. prepare specifications that describe the scope of the work
  2. prepare delivery plans for all aspects of the work, including schedule, finance, resources, risk, change
