Project quality assurance
As mentioned above, a surprisingly large proportion of IT projects are not successful, and even when projects are successful, users often do not experience any resulting benefits. What is the background to this problem? Research shows that the most common problems are weak project discipline, ineffective management styles, insufficient communication, disruptive changes in the project’s aims due to the original aims being unclear, and poor process approach or managerial decisions made with insufficient preparation.
RacioNet Zrt. provides support through its quality assurance service for clients so that these traps can be avoided during the implementation of IT projects. It helps projects to be successfully completed within budget and schedule deadlines, and ensures that the results satisfy users.
The use of project quality assurance during projects results in the conscious implementation of a quality-focused approach, providing the following benefits for organisations:
Project operation becomes more ordered and structured. Project activities are closely monitored, and feedback and assessment of interim results becomes systematic. By these means it becomes possible to continuously improve quality.
The results of the project fulfil project requirements.
Error prevention becomes more effective, as possible defects are exposed in time, and the time and resources needed for repair works decreases significantly.
Conscious project risk handling means many negative issues can be prevented from arising. At the same time, it becomes possible to take advantage of the risks that are positive from the projects’ point of view.
Due to optimal use of resources deadlines can be more successfully met.
Internal communication within the organisation improves, and acceptance of the project within the organisation also increases.
Decision preparation is improved. In decision-making situations, best practice is taken into account, and decisions are made on schedule.
It is recommended utilising a quality assurance specialist as an consultant for projects which involve either an external or internal service provider. As well as the previously-mentioned benefits, it also contributes to the following aspects:
During internal projects it may significantly contribute to the diversification of ideas as well as to the inner balance of power within the organisation. In addition, our specialists’ input may provide clients with specialist knowledge that is necessary but often lacking.
For projects implemented by means of involving an external service provider or as part of a transport contract, an independent third party can help balance the potentially different points of view between the parties by focusing solely on the success of the project. Furthermore, they may help to bridge existing business and nationality-based cultural differences.
