Expectation Charts

One of the most important tasks for any development team is to appropriately set expectations. One way to help set expectations with stakeholders is to use the expectation charts below and ask them to choose either “fixed date delivery” or “fixed scope delivery”.

With a fixed date delivery, what can be delivered is unknown, but the team should be able to provide low expectation and high expectation projections that create scope boundaries.

With a fixed scope delivery, when the project will be delivered is unknown, but the team should be able to provide slow expectation and fast expectation projection estimates that create time boundaries).
