Kevin, do we talk about the bus factor in general, or the bus factor in IT Projects? IMO, it can be extended to every project (maybe even every ministry), but this should be noted in the article (that it's actually a computing term.) --PitPat2 16:40, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

I was thinking of projects in general. for example i had to shut a base to come to brussels (see YWAM Plymouth). I think it applies to the concept of muultiplication and good management of projects. it is interesting that open source it projects have coined tghis term. --Kev-The-Hasty 19:34, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

New Title

I think, "Bus-Factor" is too geeky as a title. If somebody is spotting it in the category view, he is unlikely to guess the real content of this title. So the article could be complemented or replaced by:

  • Personal Redundancy
  • How Projects Can Still Continue
  •  ???
i like the vague title, but i see your point. i would add a sub title to it like:
bus-factor - managing robust projects

--Kev-The-Hasty 19:34, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Bus Factor - Failing is Human
Bus Factor - When someone leaves the team
Bus Factor - Avoid to depend of single persons

I also once wrote an article about this topic: http://ywamit.com/content/if-i-got-hopelessly-sick-died-suddenly

Some aspects of it could be edited into this KB entry. --Pitpat (talk) 12:07, 1 March 2013 (CET)
