Project planning needs to be done very meticulously since its a long term process and involves multiple teams and at times even reputation is at stake apart from financials.
The project required monitoring at every stage and also to keep eye on the budget since most of the time it is escalated due to various reasons. In most cases, it has been found that requirement changes due to various reasons like lack of knowledge of System Analyst or complete information of requirements are not provided resulting in re-work or changes in development work already done.
The project leader should have relevant experience and should be willing to learn as well as pass on to the team members who are capable of understanding and delivering.
Documentation is a very important component since the same is required to be referred multiple times during development and as for maintaining after implementation. In the absence of documentation clients also takes advantage by changing requirements/adding new requirements.
Following are key tasks of Project execution –
Establish a project team for project management. SWOT analysis is very important before selecting a team for a project. Always keep a back-up resource in case of any emergency, escalation, or additional requirement.
Develop evaluation and approval processes for increased project ownership.
Develop comprehensive estimating templates for timely estimate preparation and for greater estimate confidence.
Develop a detailed budget so that the same can be controlled at every stage of a project and accuracy can be increased in case of short term budgets as well as for the overall project.
Integrate project estimating and forecasting tools with financial accounting tools for improved project variance determination.
