Episode 16

The Big Themes:

  • Setting clear project goals and timelines: This will help you measure your progress. Without clear goals and success metrics, it will be difficult to understand if you are on right track.
  • Make sure you have leadership buy-in: It’s important to get these individuals on board. Leadership support can also ensure you have the right resources.
  • Select the right consulting partner: They wish they did more research on their consulting partner instead of simply using the first partner that their software vendor recommended.
  • How to recover: Identify what is happening in real-time and isolate the specific points of failure. Assess the impact on your project and organization.

The Big Quotes:

  • “So who knows where the next wave of technology will take us.”
  • “Well, like the age old question, how do you eat an elephant? It’s like one bite at a time.”
  • “You want a partner who’s not going to bait and switch you and give you wrong the team during the selection process.”
