Getting it Done or Doing it Right ?
December 2014 - This is the time where we all look forward to the Holidays and spending quality time with our families. However, this is also a time where some organizations may try to push projects to production in a hurry right before the year is over.
A lot of risk goes into this, and sometimes "getting it done" means pushing a product whose quality is not acceptable or potentially impacting negatively the business or finding yourself in a long and tenuous stabilization effort; at that moment, the Project Team needs to think hard about the decision to go live or not.
Instead, I have learned that "doing it right" is a far better approach and that the key to success is a combination of elements that must happen EARLY in the project : a Statement Of Work that is understood and agreed upon by everyone, a realistic plan that provides ample time for testing -for one, a solid stabilization period, just to mention the major ones. For the PM this means that it all comes down to Planning, Planning, and re-Planning if needed.
As usual, we kindly ask that you keep us in mind with our partner WebZwin for all your IT and web redesign projects.
Have a wonderful Holiday season, and may 2015 be a year of great opportunities for all of you !
