Are you managing a small or large project? What difference does the size of the project make? One of the major differences between any two projects is the extent to which the key elements of a project management methodology are applied.
This Project Sizing Calculator provides a guide to some of the issues to consider when deciding on the extent to which you are going to use a methodology. There are many other factors that should be taken into account, such as the level or degree of risk, technology requirements, number of stakeholders, and the skill level of the project team.
The following criteria have been developed to assist in determining the size of projects undertaken within the Tasmanian Government.
Once you have completed all 9 questions, and clicked on the button 'Calculate Project Size', the calculator will determine if you have a Small, Medium or Large Project.
For further information on how much project management discipline should be applied, refer to the Project Sizing Fact Sheet. The approach in the Fact Sheet is not prescriptive.
After taking all factors into account, a rational decision has to be made on how to manage the project in the most suitable way. However, if your project is cross-Agency, whole-of-Government or involves more than one tier of Government, the application of project management methodology to its fullest extent should seriously be considered.
