Assumptions Analysis

Assumptions analysis is a matter of validating the assumptions you identified and documented during the course of the project-planning processes. Assumptions should be accurate, complete, and consistent. Examine all your assumptions for these qualities. Assumptions are also used as a jumping-off point to further identify risks.

The important point to note about the project assumptions is that all assumptions are tested against two factors:

■ The strength of the assumption or the validity of the assumption

■ The consequences that might impact the project if the assumption turns out to be false All assumptions that turn out to be false should be evaluated and scored just as risks.
