In this blog post we will discuss about the ‘Project Delivery Approach’, how we should make sure to deliver a project successfully to clients.
CMMi has its unique way of getting things done, and in Organizations, the smaller one on that…it becomes extremely difficult for people to understand and realize the importance of following process. So How do we do it?
Well, you got to make things easy for them. you have to make sure that it becomes part of their daily routine, without even making a change in what they have been doing. Believe me, in smaller Organization the work load a resource go through is massive, and hence asking them to fill in the CMMi docs, following deadlines, and deliver project on time…makes CMMi a absolutely No-No on their part.
Today we will talk about the Project Delivery Approach. This is a document which sums up the activity that every project should be doing, including what type of artifacts are required, and where to keep them! …yes, we’re going to unravel the mystery behind CMMi….Let’s get started!
This document describes the project and summarizes the project delivery approach. It is owned by the offshore Project Manager. The objective is to describe the overall structure and control mechanisms used to govern the project at offshore.
Whether it is an Onsite-Offshore delivery model, or is completely Offshore delivery approach, this document takes care of every aspect involved in delivery
Once we are clear with the objective of the document,next comes is Client Overview.
This is the place where you define a brief note about the client. The idea is to understand which client this document is going to be about, and what client business is.
Remember this document is not ONLY for the person who is going to make it, this makes round across the Organization in various departments! Hence every effort should be made to make sure it is easily understood, and communicate the language which is well understood with-in Organization.
In the next series we will go on and talk about remaining sections of PDA.
