Why do projects fail? Why do projects regularly have problems to complete in time and budget and deliver the defined scope in the requested quality? The reasons are more than likely to be diverse and individual to the particular project. From our experience, a project does not usually fail due to lack of technical or business expertise from members of the project teams.
It is much more likely that a project’s success or failure will be determined by the type of management methodology that is used during the implementation, testing and roll out phases of a project.
A holistic approach is required that ensures an optimized selection and implementation of the appropriate project management approach, including requirement and migration management as well as test and roll out management.
Firstwaters places a great deal of importance in training all of its consultants on project methodology. Prior to embarking on new client projects, careful consideration of the correct methodology and its design is especially important. We work closely with our customers to ascertain that the correct methodology is chosen and applied according to the project specific requirements and organisational setup.
