Delivery: A Pain Point for Tech Leadership

We, as tech leaders, face a number of pain points when it comes to delivering results, including skill gaps, unrealistic timelines, and quality issues. 

Skill gaps 

One of the biggest challenges for us is finding and retaining employees with the right skills.  As a result, many of us find ourselves with teams that lack the skills necessary to deliver on our goals. 

Unrealistic timelines 

Another common pain point is unrealistic timelines. We are often under pressure to deliver results quickly, even when the requirements are complex or there are unforeseen challenges. This can lead to our teams being overworked and rushed, which can lead to quality issues. 

Quality issues 

Quality issues are a major pain point for us, can be caused by a number of factors, including skill gaps, unrealistic timelines, and poor communication and collaboration.

With the help of the following tips, I am able to manage the delivery and support of large-scale business-critical applications at Mobifly:

  • Monitor progress regularly. I meet with my team each morning to discuss priorities and allocate tasks. This helps me identify and address any potential problems early on. 
  • Break down large projects into smaller tasks. This makes them more manageable and easier to track. I also break down tasks into story points of no more than 1-2 days. 
  • Prioritize the most important tasks. Not all tasks are created equal. I focus on the tasks that will have the biggest impact on the project’s success. 
  • Delegate tasks to team members. I delegate tasks to team members who have the skills and experience to complete them successfully. This frees up my time and allows me to focus on more strategic tasks. 
  • Be flexible and adaptable. Things don’t always go according to plan. I am prepared to adjust my approach as needed. Communicate regularly with my team and stakeholders. I keep everyone informed of the project’s progress and any changes to the plan.
