Positive attitude and good motivation can get you through thick and thin. Even the biggest obstacles might not look so challenging when you are surrounded by a team that is motivated and sees things in a positive light. This kind of optimistic attitude is important, especially in the software deployment process.
The common problems in deployment projects
Taking new software into use can sometimes be time-consuming and stressful. There might be several people involved in the process from both, the customer’s and the service provider’s side. Having a larger team working together increases automatically the number of opinions you need to take into consideration.
In addition to this, hurry and lacking a mutual voice are common problems in deployment projects. Excessive hastening in the deployment project can complicate the process and has a crucial impact on its final duration. And the more complex a project becomes, the longer it continues. Data management can then be more difficult if it needs to be updated for changes that occur during the project.
The process is even more complicated if the persons involved don’t, metaphorically, speak the same language. Customer’s and service provider’s thoughts don’t meet or they haven’t been expressed clearly enough.
This all leads us to one question: How can you reach the finish line successfully in a deployment process like this?
Well planned is half done
With good project management, planning, and above all – with the right attitude – a challenging project can be successfully completed. Good project management and communication ensure that all parties are aware of their expectations, schedule and project guidelines.
Everyone has to also be aware of the operating models and take care of data accuracy to avoid unnecessary mistakes in the integration.
Good training on how to use the new software is crucial in deployment projects. New functionalities may seem like a scary equation in a busy everyday life. When there are adequate resources and support for orientation, the new system no longer feels so scary – instead, it feels like a great opportunity. Possible problem situations can be solved smoothly when the orientation is done well.
Furthermore, well-executed training and customer support save both, time and money.
Behind every great project is a motivated team
If you’re about to be involved in a deployment process and you want the process to be efficient as possible, take a look at the following tips:
- Hurrying on planning’s expense can cause additional costs
- With good project management and communication, the process can proceed as planned and possible delays can be eliminated
- Training and orientation must be planned well – these affect directly on work motivation and the project’s overall success
