Attack risks early

| Work and play | 0 Comments
Checklist for success:
  • Identify and attack the most important risks early on in the project before they come back and haunt you at the end of the project.
  • According to Murphy's Law this is usually right before an important launch date when the customer is the most eager to see results.
  • From the very beginning, keep an up to date risk list in order to track progress and ensure the success of the project.
  • Along with each risk listed, include a plan for mitigating that risk.
  • Order these risks according to importance, e.g. those risks which would have the biggest impact on the project should go first.
  • A very simple Excel sheet with a few columns should suffice.
  • This list serves as a focal point for planning project activities, and is the basis around which iterations are organized.
  • As the project continues this list will change and if it doesn't be weary of impending danger.
