4. Realistic production schedule.
Since time-to-market is a critical element for most companies, deadlines
are frequently set to coincide with an event or important landmark date
for the company. Often marketing or corporate communications will plan
a "launch" event to mark the occasion. However, an unrealistic
deadline will cost your company more risk and money.
What to Expect: A good solutions provider will assess whether
the entire project can be achieved by the set deadline. The proposal
should include a production schedule that is clear about what implementation
can and cannot be accomplished within the set timeframe.
Review the proposed production schedule and fully understand what the
solutions provider is able to implement. If the deadline can be met,
great! If not, be open to a possible phased approach that tackles the
most critical implementations to meet your deadline. Quality is often
more profitable than speed.
