I’ve been musing over a recent community site that launch and been reflecting on the development and project work around this. Its been one of the most enjoyable projects the Intranet team has been involved in. Looking at some of the reasons behind this we could factor in aspects such as clear sponsorship, a firm governance model, clarity over roles, good design brief and of course the desire and passion for this project to succeed. However, one important aspect that I hope is not overlooked is the experience all the key protagonists brought to the field. The core team had an average of over 9 years experience within BDO. I feel this maturity assisted in ensuring the project lacked any tantrums, egos, knee-jerk reactions, and ???toys out of the pram??? behaviour. What it did ensure was mutual respect between all those involved and personal responsibility to get tasks complete. In fact a model project for our organisations values.
