What is Progressive Elaboration and Why is It Important?

by: Michelle Kerby

If you’re running a project or managing global software releases, the more you know, the better. The challenge is that in the initial stages of planning you often don’t have all the information you’ll need, potentially causing problems as you get deeper into a project and leading to a lack of alignment among your teams.

Teams at National Australia Bank and elsewhere are leveraging project management approaches like progressive elaboration to include the details needed for product accuracy. As the name implies, progressive elaboration is a project management process that constantly updates project plans as more information becomes available. This makes a project more accurate and complete.

Using progressive elaboration means that you’re constantly working and making decisions with all available information, rather than committing to the plan you created at the outset of a project when your overall knowledge level was low. This approach provides a clearer sense of what the final solution is going to do, what dependencies exist within your project, and whether everyone is working on features that add value to the project. Ultimately, you can eliminate work that doesn’t contribute to the final product and keep teams focused on aspects of the project that add maximum value.

Rally from Broadcom Software helps provide the level of visibility and transparency that you need to make the most of an approach like progressive elaboration. Rally makes it easy for anyone in your company to get access to the most up-to-date information about a project. Rally also ensures that teams are coordinated and working on the next logical feature while giving stakeholders an accurate picture of how the overall programs are going.
