Practice Activities

  1. Use Table 2-1 to rate the relevance to your own project of each of the 21 practices described in this chapter. Use a scale of zero to five, where zero means the practice doesn’t pertain to your project at all and five means it is very important.

  2. Use Table 2-1 to assess your team’s capability to perform each of those 21 practices on their project. Again use a scale of zero to five, where zero means the practice is completely foreign to the team members and five means the team is expert at applying that practice.

  3. Identify gaps between the relevance of a specific practice to your project and the team’s capability to perform the practice. That is, look for practices you rated as having high relevance but low current capability.
