Lessons No. Situation: Effect: Recommendation and Comments: 1. Cost Cost estimation must be as accurate as possible. Towards the end of the project it’s too late to identify the project overrun. Focus more on the cost. Produce weekly report of how much was spend and how much it will still cost. Set up a stand-by budget for any unforeseen changes and extra works. 2.
Communication Lack of communication or late answers from any part of the team affect the whole project. Communication between involved parties should be opened and maintained all the time. Setting up a virtual group is very useful. 3. Design It can be a big issue if the design doesn’t meet requirements and criteria’s, especially budget. Concept design should be produced earlier, so the team can review and contribute value comments. 4.
Time Missed deadline by member of the team can seriously affect the project duration which can result in loss. Involved parties should be prepared carefully to deliver the project and be always on time. More time planning helps to safe time during the process.
5. Scope Change order and extra work orders affect the scope of the project. If control is lost over the scope, then control over the time and cost is also lost. Before starting additional work, identify a propose change, the impact on cost and schedule and check whether the documents were approved or rejected. Follow a scope control process. 6. Team Work in a team can be stressful.
There can be misunderstanding or less contribution from other parties. Team members should equally help to decide, contribute, carry out the work and receive the changes. Focus on positive outcomes not on problems. Respect and tolerance! Neutral facilitator if needed. 7.
