Organizational Quality Systems cover many aspects of compliance. Many industries have established standards, and most companies establish their own. From a project life cycle standpoint, product quality includes meeting technical performance requirements and specifications, some of which are directed by industry compliance codes. Project teams are basically commissioned to establish objective criteria (via tests, analyses, demonstrations, documentation, etc.) to validate and qualify the end product and ensure consistent and predictable production and/or deployment. Pro-active product development processes which accelerate testing to find issues early in the project life cycle can enable the organization to meet its goals to “do more with less.” These actions effectively reduce risks earlier, and organizations which conduct similar development projects in succession have very good opportunities to continually refine their processes through postmortem analyses and expedient implementation of systemic corrective actions. My book “Project Risk Management: A Practical Implementation Approach” identifies other pro-active tools and techniques which most organizations can and should consider utilizing to improve product quality and “do more with less.”
The objective of this series of posts is to provide insights into the breadth of Holistic Project Risk Management, especially as it relates to satisfying an organization’s objective to “Do More with Less” – which, if done well will improve the organization’s business success. The plan is to provide 2 posts per week over the course of 10 weeks. Thus, there will be time in between topics to comment and/or reach out to the author for clarification or further requests. Past posts will be assembled and stored on the Build2Scale.net website for future reference.
