“Remember Winston Wolf, a supporting character in Quentin Tarantino’s 2nd film, Pulp Fiction? He is a man who fixes problems for Marsellus Wallace, a gang boss. Wolf’s famous line to his co-workers, when called to action, is: ‘If I’m curt with you it’s because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this.’ This perfectly illustrates how how a good software project rescue team should operate.”

FAQ

When do I need to change my current software contractor?

There is no IT initiative that is bulletproof. Whether the software project is carried out in a large corporation or a small startup does not matter. The earliest signs that the project is in trouble may be hard to spot but not when you know what to look at.

  • Suddenly you may realize that your project is living on its own
  • And no one can tell how it helps the business’ objectives

Other warning signs include:

  • Poor communication across the project team
  • Constant change in project scope
  • Poor task prioritization
  • No or weak project management and control

If you additionally observe a decrease in motivation in the software project team and the staff turnover increase, you may be sure that the project is on the way to derailing. And this is about the right time to change your current software development contractor and start the rescue mission.

What methodology do you use for your software rescue missions?

Typically we use the Scrum methodology with two weeks sprints. But we can move much faster if necessary.

What do you need to make sure the rescue mission will be successful?

We need a clear mandate to introduce changes in the project so that every project stakeholder understands that the situation is urgent and important. Also, we assume that the following things will be provided for the rescue mission:

  • Access to the source code of the application
  • Access to the current documentation to allow an in-depth understanding of the project
  • Access for Multishoring employees involved in the project to the public cloud services and databases used
  • Availability of admins and other persons from the Client will be necessary during the work to conduct the project
  • Handover meetings with key personnel involved in the software development, including the participation of a previous solution provider (to ensure smooth knowledge transfer and continuity in the development process)

What are the most common risks during software project rescue missions?

The most common risks during the software project rescue missions include:

  • Difficulties in communication during the project handover. The mitigation path is to assure the Client’s and current software development supplier personnel’s time to cooperate with Multishoring
  • Possible lack of documentation. In this case, it will be helpful to analyze provided documentation with the previous vendor’s participation to complete the documentation deficiencies.
  • Delays in granting full access to necessary environments for the Multishoring software development team. This risk should be addressed early in the project, preferably before the start of the development.

How does a project recovery plan look like?

The project recovery plan is a road map by which the software project’s personnel will steer a project back on track. A well-designed project recovery plan takes project scheduling, scope of work, financial obligations, resource management, and site details into consideration — and then scales out, identifying possible points of failure in order to predict and mitigate risk. You can find out more about how to create a project recovery plan in the blog post “6 steps to project recovery” on PMI.org. Also, don’t forget to include a software project rescue team consisting of the best software developers and project managers if you think that external help is needed.
