Put a boundary on your project scope
One of the most common ‘pain points’ we hear from clients is unexpected or inevitable delays in product deployment. There are several reasons for seeing a product’s time-to-market fly past initial deadlines, but one of the biggest inhibitors is a bloated project scope.
So… how do you help keep project scope under control? Seilevel staff use a Business Objectives Model (BOM) on every project to help prioritize most-needed features and remove unnecessary ones. The BOM is a core concept in Seilevel’s software requirements methodology. This approach to our clients’ projects has helped us cut an average of 71% of product features while still delivering expected value.
The Business Objectives Model illustrates the value a project will bring to the customer. Using the BOM helps identify appropriate business objectives and the process of selecting in-scope features, as well as providing traceability for requirements. One of our staff members describes the use and need of a BOM in an eloquently simple example on our blog here. It’s a great read!
