Have you ever wished you could just start over? Sometimes that's exactly what a troubled project calls for. This paper outlines how to get a panicked project team to stop, take a deep breath, analyze what has gone wrong and how to get it right again, and re-launch your disaster project with new, actually attainable goals.
What this is
This paper, originally presented at the ProjectWorld conference, describes how to use the guidelines and techniques of Quality Rapid Product Development (QRPD®) to pinpoint and fully understand the project's past problems, revitalize your plan and your team, and get that product out the door. Typical scenarios from actual projects are used to illustrate how these approaches come into play in the real world. It also discusses how the same guidelines and techniques could have been used to avoid the problems in the first place.
Why it's useful
Once the project's predicament is obvious, all too often the energy that's needed for finding a solution goes instead to recriminations, "spin control", and attempts to place blame elsewhere. The fact is that time-to-market still matters, so the company and the project team must go beyond those natural reactions to constructive action: a real plan for getting the product out the door. This paper provides detailed steps for re-launching a troubled project by getting the team recommitted to a realistic plan.
