If you know anything about C5 Insight, you probably know that we are huge proponents of proper planning and control in projects of any type, but especially SharePoint and CRM. In fact, we speak on this topic regularly and make it a top priority for all of our clients. One very important aspect of both planning and control is establishing and maintaining a leadership team for your project. I know what you’re thinking: we already have a project team, do we really need another formal team? After all, that only means more meetings, tasks, documents to write and manage, decisions to make, consensus to get, etc. My answer is a resounding yes, you most certainly need this team.
But here’s the truth – while extremely important to the success of the project, this doesn’t have a to be a huge undertaking. Every day we work on real projects, with real clients, facing real conflicting priorities and resourcing issues. Trust me, we get it. Without a doubt, the most important thing is to do something. After all, inaction is worse than imperfect action. Put another way, doing something is better than doing nothing at all.
