If we are IT field or in any other field as well it is important to keep some points into the consideration as we are going through the new customer requirements and challenges to implement them as well. So here we are going to discuss the ways to conquer the difficult assignment. Let's start with few basic things here.
Define the Project
Before embarking on the project, spend some time on thinking about it. “Define the problem statement clearly and figure out what the customer need as the end result to look like. Identifying the project properly, discussing its scope, and then identifying key roles, users and sub-partners as well if exists. It will help to keep track the future of the project and imagine the working of it.
Get Team in Place
There are certain key elements to approaching a challenging project, one of which is people i.e the implementation team and the project lead. “Apart from having stakeholder commitment, it is essential to pick the right people for the project. This will ensure you execute the project well and if the team is having a right team lead that can image the project to the team so that team can discuss the requirement”. From the team lead perspective he/she should communicate the team daily.
Proper time management is one of the pillars on which any project is executed. “Time management helps in using resources efficiently. Assigning specific time frames to each unit of work helps to quickly identify a lag, if any, and maintain a constant rate of workflow".
Seek help from the experienced professionals
It may be helpful to seek advice from experienced colleagues since they may have a well-rounded perspective. “Specific departments have unique working styles and it is advisable to consult one’s seniors when help is required,” Additionally we have to focuses on “Resources like people involved, technology and tools may be obtained internally from the host organisation or procured from external sources.”
Think of the Future
While strategising on how to approach the project at hand, it is also sensible to consider what lies ahead. “Take some time to figure out how the end result of the project can be made scaleable as time goes on, for how much time it can rely on the implementing technology, so selection of the implementing technology is also going to play a key role in the future of the project".
These are the key points to focus before starting a project and these should be considered in the very beginning of the project as while preparing the project plan or while deciding the project.
