How to Avoid Project Delays: Practical Tips and Tricks

  • Poorly specified requirements often result in loss of development time and costs, low-quality project documentation, and eventually, a project failure.
  • Loss of the key project players can be solved by hiring the missing talents, or the team can share tasks among themselves, but all such rearrangements will take time.
  • When the software development company and client don’t communicate well, it can lead to delays.
  • Underestimated project complexity by both the developers and the product owner can be a reason for delays later on.
  • Solid project requirements that include information such as needed functionality, expectations on cost, examples of competitors with the same product, and deadlines are key to accurate project estimation.
  • Determine the scope of work that should be completed in a specific period.
  • Cooperate with an outsourcing company that uses the Agile approach.
  • During the project, your team should involve you in the development process to always be aware of the project progress, provide your feedback, and make changes if needed.
  • Manage a project with the use of special tools.
  • Tracking progress is essential to ensure a project is on its way to success.
