Classification of Projects

IT projects are classified as “Small,” “Medium,” “Large,” or as “Super Projects.”

  • Small Projects (1-3 weeks)
  • Medium Projects (3-6 weeks)
  • Large Projects (6-12 weeks)
  • Super Projects (13 weeks or more)

Projects are classified based on their complexity and resource requirements. For example, a very complex project requiring all available resources (e.g. the implementation of a ERP module) will likely require 12+ weeks, where as a much smaller project may take only 1 week. The maximum number of projects that can be scheduled during each quarter must not exceed 12 weeks. The exception will be “Super Projects” in which case the project must be fully vetted to understand what resources will be required (internal vs. external) and for what duration.
