I believe it’s much more than simply delivering a software solution to solve a business problem. It’s an opportunity to change the way you work, realise your ambitions and build your business!
Identify the main objective of your project to ultimately decide if software is the best way to achieve this.
Facilitation of a complete software project, acting as a conduit between software and business requirements.
If your existing software project is running over time, over budget, or is held up by other issues, Iâ€™ll help you find a solution.
My role as a business analyst on your project is to facilitate smooth, efficient projects, avoid unnecessary complications and ensure you correctly identify your objectives and then explain them clearly and accurately to your software provider.
Communication, understanding, timing and teamwork
are essentials for success.
I’ll help you find the real focus of your project; the main objective you’re trying to achieve. The next step is to write a detailed and accurate Request for Proposal (RFP) in the language software providers can easily understand and interpret.
The end result is crystal-clear predicted outcome that everyone can work towards.
I often work with clients who do not have software expertise but understand the importance of customised, efficient software solutions in today’s increasingly competitive world. With both software and business experience in equal measure, I speak the language of both sides fluently, giving projects clarity for all concerned and avoiding expensive miscommunication problems in the process.
Good communication motivates and involves everyone in a software project; they know what they should be doing, why they should be doing it, when it’s needed and how they are going to benefit.
So agreeing and communicating a realistic budget and achievable timing plan is a critical step that, if done right, will help avoid any dreaded scope creep on your project. Some say it’s inevitable. I say it’s avoidable.
Your project can be an opportunity to assess and improve staff training and working practises. A well-run project develops teamwork and creates a better, more efficient working environment.
In the long-term, this leads to a better business. Successful projects motivate staff, focus management and give customers even more reason to make you their first choice!
Who wouldn’t love to be involved in a project where everyone knows exactly what to do and how to do it? Where any issues (however small) are addressed quickly and effectively? Let’s make it happen!
