JPACE or Justify, Plan, Activate, Control and End it the right way is one of the many techniques or ways with which Project Managers can manage their projects/products effectively. [1]

Project Management requires steady involvement of Project Managers and it is imperative to follow a proper technique for success of the project while maintaining healthy environment with the members. While the traditional techniques of software development management were able to provide results on the project front, they were not focusing on the placement of trust within the teams. This initiated a shift in the Project Management practice and newer ways of managing project came into picture. Instilling trust between team members of different skillsets was required and hence newer and lightweight project management frameworks like Agile and Kanban started to gain space in different industries. These brought in results within lesser duration with quality of work. With the right prioritisation the project scope also completed as per stakeholder expectations.


Early 1990s saw evolution of project management techniques followed for software development.[2] Techniques like waterfall were used in the past but with the newer ways discovered, methods like JPACE are growing rapidly. Over time traditional heavyweight software development and project management techniques like waterfall have evolved into a number of lightweight software development frameworks like Agile aligning Scrum Teams and Kanban boards. Other methods which relate to JPACE is AGILE where customer feedback or stakeholder inputs are given more attention over other factors. Smaller yet faster work packages are executed in sprint based planning.

Experience and Adoption[edit]

JPACE is gaining adoption at a fast speed as the traditional software development techniques are time consuming and require a lot of effort in managing the project. The stakeholders are more inclined towards getting faster results. The ability to provide Proof of Concepts and then moving towards Most Value Product work packages is picking up speed.
