1. Get specific.
Dive into details, understand, and ask questions. This is the only way to preempt risks and proactively mitigate risks.
2. You can’t manage what you can’t measure.
Ensure data correctness and completeness. Automate reporting to enhance effectiveness.
3. Never compromise on quality.
Follow proper cadence to ensure due time is given to testing.
4. Remember that NFRs are as important as functional deliveries.
What fun is building a 100km/hr lane if your car can only go 20km/hr?
5. Have well-defined ownership.
Ensure RACI is defined for each stakeholder in delivering such programs and revisit it regularly.
