When embarking on long-term projects, whether it's software development or any other large-scale endeavor, transparency and organization are paramount. In this write-up, we outline methods to ensure proper management throughout a development project.
Establishing Milestones
One foundational aspect of success in a long-term project is breaking down the entire process into clear milestones (the naming is merely a matter of preference). These milestones typically span 3-4 week intervals (it's advisable not to make them longer), with each marking the achievement of a specific goal. The advantage here is that at the completion of each milestone, there's a handover, allowing the client to test out the new features and provide immediate feedback.
Decision Making Between Milestones
Milestones not only serve as measures of progress but also provide opportunities for discussing potential changes. This process allows the project to remain flexible, adapting to the client's needs as time progresses. Hence, there's no need to fear that feedback will take too long to implement; it can often be integrated by the time of the next milestone.
Transparency in Payment Schedules
Transparency also extends to financial management. At Vamosoft, it's common practice to request payment only upon reaching milestones, thereby reinforcing clients' trust. Each payment is clearly tied to the completion of a specific phase of the project, allowing clients to precisely track where their money is going. This makes the entire project much more predictable.
The Importance and Flexibility of Planning
While meticulous planning of milestones is essential for successful project management, it's crucial that these plans also allow for some flexibility. The initial milestone is typically more extensive, ensuring that a stable, usable version is available early on. This gives clients something tangible to see even in the early stages of the project. For example, in the breakdown of a Social Application: Registration, Login, Post Creation; Uploading Images and Videos, Profile Editing; Adding and Managing Friends, etc.
