Agree and manage the interfaces Manage interfaces to make sure the parts of the solution combine with each other and the operational environment to create an effective whole – and to allow teams to work in parallel confident that all the pieces they are developing will fit together and work together. Identify who is responsible for and involved in each interface.
Track progress against a plan As well as the traditional project management measures of cost, schedule and resources, it is important to track skills, decisions and technical performance. Adapt to changes and be prepared to backtrack on decisions. Failure to agree requirements or interfaces may be symptoms of deeper problems.
