The first thing you need to do before any project starts: make sure you’re solving the right problem. This means asking insightful and sometimes tough questions, and challenging your (often hidden) assumptions.
Your one chance to save money
Once a project is underway it is very difficult to reduce its cost.
More than half of technology projects run over budget by 43%, and poor communication and poor morale can add an estimated additional 20%.
Benefits of Good Design
Successful technology projects do one thing – they enable your organization to change how it operates.
- more efficient (do the same job faster),
- more effective (deliver higher quality), or
- innovative (create new/unique products, services or processes)
A successful project is comprehensive yet focused. You need to design your project so it solves a well-understood problem and enables and encourages the specific changes you intend to make.
