Information-driven project management

Projects planning usually starts with the use of planning and scheduling tools to depict an event sequence, but these tools do not account for the information flow which provides the necessary inputs needed for project completion.Information-Driven Project Management (IDPM) adds this missing dimension, supplementing a workflow view with a dependency view, and enabling information to be managed along with tasks.The article explains the fundamentals of IDPM, and describes how to construct and use Information Dependency Maps, which explicitly plot information flow throughout a project.An example is provided of a software company which cut its product cycle time from 18 to 6 months using IDPM tools.
