4 essential things you need to set IT projects up for success
Did you know that a staggering 5 out of 10 IT projects fail or don’t meet their goals?
In this video, ECLEVA’s CEO Patrick Northcott shares 4 essential things you need to set your IT projects up for success.
- Ensure the project roadmap and critical success factors are well defined and aligned to the business’ strategic objectives.
- You need a Project Sponsor that needs to have Seniority and ensure outcomes are aligned to business strategy, having the authority to support the Product Owner when projects encounter challenges.
- The project needs an internal Product Owner who has great in-depth understanding of the business and what users need.
- Prioritise “must have” first and ”nice to haves” later. Delivering quick fixes first will provide you with rapid time to value and demonstrate that progress is being made.
The most successful projects have a strong project team that works closely with the users. Teams thrive when systems are designed by the users for the users.
