Avoiding Mistakes in Technical Project Management

Companies need to adjust quickly in order to be successful. Project drivers need to use new methods to keep up with the fast-paced technology world while maintaining up-to-date priorities, avoiding new mistakes, and not repeating past ones. We all know mistakes will happen on rare occasions, so how they are handled determines a project’s success. An agile approach to marketing-driven technical projects helps overcome the problems experienced in previous situations, and also works to prevent new obstacles from derailing or delaying a project.

Knotice’s Scrum method helps us recognize that potential problems cannot always be completely defined or even flushed out, initially. The goal is to maximize the project team’s ability to deliver projects quickly and respond to incoming requests or changes, no matter when they are made. That process and approach makes project teams more productive, reduces mistakes, decreases development time, and delivers a project on time.

Frequent communication helps team members know what’s already been done, what needs to be done, and what hurdles exist that may prevent a project goal from happening on time. Also, team members may be working on a variety of projects at the same time, so everyone needs to know what others are working on, who is responsible for what and when each piece of the project is due. Using this approach in marketing-driven technical projects allows for quick recognition of any potential troubles and also enables a rapid response and resolution from the development team.

Things can go wrong during the lifecycle of any project, so the best thing a project manager can do is plan for unanticipated issues, monitor the development process, and proactively keep the communication channels open to all team members. The agile management method Knotice employs makes our project plans flexible and helps us react more quickly to evolving needs while revealing possible mistakes well in advance.
