What according to you are the key factors that determine a project's success?
At Outsource2india, we strongly believe that the key success factors for the project are -
This is the most important aspect where all expectations, instructions, timelines, metrics, and changes must be communicated and documented. Similarly, the execution team must not make any assumptions all queries, clarifications, requests for additional information must be documented and requested and the responses must again be documented. Most outsourced projects fail not because of the complexity of the task but because of a failure in communication.
The second most important success factor that goes hand in hand with the first is transparency. This ensures the early detection and resolution of potential problems. We ensure that the execution process is as open and transparent as possible.
The transition phase of the project is critical to the success of the project, minor aspects overlooked during the transition phase come back to haunt in the later stages of a project, and when this is combined with lack of communication and transparency it leads to several problems.
Involvement of senior management
In any outsourced project, the involvement is senior management is crucial to ensure the success of the project. This is very important because often the staff involved with the transition and day to day interaction on the project, view the task and an addition to their regular work and are not as committed as senior management to ensure the success of the project.
There must be a single point of contact whose KRA is to ensure the success of the project, he needs to be responsible to ensure that the team gets what they need to execute the work. He/she must have the required authority and access required; often a task is delayed because of reasons like someone in IT is waiting for approval to provide the required access etc.
