Objective Analysis - Brief Description
The objective tree technique helps to define project objectives and provides a way to order them in a hierarchical structure. An objective tree is used to provide a guiding rational for systems design and evaluation. It also helps to indicate how the attainment of sub-objectives contributes to the accomplishment of higher objectives. Objective trees help to show how objectives for a project are interrelated. They also provide a useful way of identifying criteria for evaluating alternative means as well as helping to assess the level of impact or scope of the project. Objective trees provide the necessary inputs to other techniques such as the Project Planning Matrix and other planning techniques.
