A badly set up project will come back and haunt you later. Once a project runs away, it can be incredibly difficult to get it back.
There is a long list of project problems caused by poor project set up; here are a few of the most common
Unworkable governance structures which paralyse the project through inability to make decisions
An unworkable scope so the team gives up trying to meet an impossible target.
A poor business case so the benefits cannot be measured
Overly complex structures leading to unnecessary bureaucracy
The wrong people on the team leading to wasted budget and poorly motivated teams
You want to make the appropriate effort at the start of the project in a way that reflects the complexity of the project. You will want to take into account the budget and time constraints so you donâ€™t design an impossible project. You want a detailed, credible plan and sponsors with authority.
In short you want to set up the project to succeed instead of setting it up to fail.
blucone will design a project kick off appropriate to your project, so you can fast track the launch of your project. Remember the initial assessment is free and we give exceptional value by including project tools as part of the service (for example easy dashboard reporting).
