Delivery

Look to delight customers, enhance company reputation and justify our claim to being experts by:

  • acting responsibly with clients’ budgets, systems and data remember, the people you are working with day to day may not be the same people who are looking at the cost; it is your responsibility to be aware of the commercial arrangements for the engagement and to monitor the budget
  • ensuring that our deliverables (code, documentation, systems) are of high quality and would stand up to any scrutiny and that you seek guidance if you are in any doubt about the quality if the client says they are going to get an independent audit of the code (or documentation), we need to be able to say ‘Bring it on!’
  • Raising concerns and potential issues through the appropriate channels so that they can be addressed and planned for before they grow into monsters if there’s any chance it might bite us later, raise it now
  • keeping promises on delivery and where that proves impossible, communicating slippage at the earliest possible opportunity and through the appropriate channel a delay might not seem like much when you are snowed under with different tasks or sweating blood trying to fix problems, but to the client who’s total focus might be on this project, they will think we don’t care
  • understanding their business imperatives and showing appropriate flexibility remember we’re experts in Identity Management not in how they should run their business
  • endeavouring to exceed customer expectation by delivering on, or under, time and budget and so encourage a long-term, commercial relationship based on trust
