3 Steps to Eliminating Rework Forever

3What if everything could happen correctly the first time? Imagine complete perfection in a project without any rework or misunderstood requirements? Well, according to this article by Brad Egeland, it’s a simple matter of living in an imaginary world.

Ok, it’s impossible to eliminate rework and achieve perfection (as Egeland is quick to admit), but there are some things you can do to mitigate the risks and increase communication. For instance, thoroughly documenting and reviewing requirements can help eliminate scope creep or miscommunication early in the project. Likewise, including a scope discussion in every weekly meeting can make stakeholders, team-members, and your project manager better understand what new challenges or requests are being added to a project.

Furthermore, Egeland explains the value of staying on top of the budget and schedule – not letting either slip away due to a focus on other elements of the project.
