1. Understand Project Scope
Understand the project scope clearly and assure the proposed project will address all of the stakeholder’s needs, structure efficient development process, and aid in bypassing unnecessary processes. The project management team will review essential steps at each stage of concept, development, and delivery to maintain quality communication between stakeholders and avoid superfluous prolonging deadlines. The project design process will take less time, the results will be valid, and the transition cycle will become seamless.
2. Defining Performance Goals
Remember, the project is a marathon, not a sprint. You don’t want to run out of energy before the finish line. Performance tuning should be a part of the development during every optimization project cycle. Think about capacity vs. volume, optimize essential things first, and never optimize without realistic goals. Optimize one bottleneck at a time. If you try to do something in parallel without validating the impact of the one optimization, you will lose track of which optimization measure helped.
3. Outsource Subcontractors
A standard method to increase performance optimization and project delivery time is to subcontract an activity. The subcontractor may have access to superior technology or expertise that will speed up project completion. Sometimes it is possible to rearrange the project logic so that important activities are carried out in parallel rather than in succession. Outsourcing project work can add expert knowledge, increase diversity in thinking, and restructure resources to save time and expenditures on activities. Subcontracting frees up resources assigned to critical projects and will ideally result in a shorter project delivery duration. The key is to add subcontractors to expedite project delivery during periods of peak workloads.
4. Help Create Functional Team Alignment
Functional team alignments is vital to address mistakes that increase common performance problems. Establish a core project team to devote their undivided attention to provide a technical overview of the system capabilities during an ongoing process review and evaluation. This singular focus creates a shared goal among stakeholders that can bind a diverse set of professionals into a highly cohesive team capable of accelerating performance optimization and project delivery. When stakeholders don’t act interdependently, communication problems or decreased performance are likely to occur. An optimization advisor can create a functional alignment among stakeholders by identifying “opportunities” for optimization and strategies to “take action” in the workspace that improve stakeholder alignment. Similarly, Microsoft tasks advisors to guide reinforcing team alignment practices across their company.
Mitigate risks and optimize performance by conducting workshops or training for stakeholders to understand project scope, define goals, outsource, and align teams more effectively. Reduce common performance issues and increase optimization and project delivery by rethinking project scope, customer needs, and essential technologies.
