It’s crunch time for a new technology project in my world and we need your last minute help to finish on time. Our service team of sales, marketing, operations and technology professionals can’t seem to agree on the singular goal for a new reporting system set to launch at the beginning of the next month. Looking at the constraints we’re facing right now… the scope changes seem endless, the time is ticking away rapidly and there’s enough marketing dollars for only one more superhero to join the existing project team.
Our readings and in class discussion give clear warning about understanding these “three essential elements and how all three of these constraints apply to your projects.” But now faced with a lopsided triangle I’m in search of a solution.
I’m happy to embrace an agile software development style but in this case we need to find, agree and implement our next step quickly. As a leader on the project team I am more than happy to dedicate more resources because I believe in this project but to do so I need a bigger budget. So please help us fix the problem and successfully launch our new tool. Click on PayPal or ApplePay, send checks or just drop a few coins in the hat. It’s going to be an intense 10 days but we will make it work.
If your budgets are also stretched please send over some other solutions. Flushing money at this problem and stocking up on extra help may not be the ideal path so I’m open to anything.
