Expert Judgment Role in the Project Management

Expert judgment is an approach for soliciting information provided by any group or individual with specialized knowledge or training. The judgment and expertise can be any technical or management details. Expert judgment can help to identify the potential cost, schedule impact, evaluate the performance, evaluate and mitigate any risks, review project quality, and any other processes in the project management.

There are many sources that can provide expert judgment, such as:
  • Other units within organization,
  • Consultants,
  • Stakeholders, including customers or sponsors,
  • Professional and technical associations,
  • Industry groups,
  • Subject matter experts, and
  • Project Management Office (PMO).
Project managers should consider about the expert judgment role in the project management. Such experts can be identified early during the Identify Stakeholders process. Their role in providing technical or management expertise can help the project managers to decide the best decision during the project processes.
