QAIassist Integrated IT Methodology® Overview

If your organization is like the many companies we encounter on a daily basis, you may be managing projects using Excel sheets, white boards, paper based calendars or MS Project desktop. Maybe your team has a low end collaborative system, a shared network drive or SharePoint. These tools are a good start toward getting your team more organized and efficient. However, many project teams have not yet developed a standardized project process, defined templates for deliverables such as project charters or business requirements, or decided upon a methodology to follow.

What is a 'methodology?' The Greeks coined the term 'methodos,' which was used both as a noun and as a verb. The noun usage of 'methodos' means a path that could be followed to reach a destination. The verb usage means the journey to be taken along that path. It is not simply about getting from point A to point B, but the overall experience as well. A methodology refers to the process or the 'how' a goal is attained. Every project has a goal, yet not many teams plan and prepare HOW they will achieve the goal of the project. Has your project management team answered the questions? :

  • What will our project management framework be?
  • What criteria should we use to prioritize our projects?
  • What delivery approach should we utilize? Waterfall, agile, spiral, RAD or other?
  • What gates and milestones should be present in every project?
  • What should the standard deliverables be?
