Delivering a project to a client is the hardest thing in the real world scenario. One has to make sure that the client meets all the requirements from the deliverables’ as the project would be in a ready state when it is about to be delivered. One should present a project in a way that satisfies the client’s need. So presenting your product or a final project is also a skilled task and a form of art. “80 percent of success is just showing up”(Woody Allen, 2011).
For a successful delivery of a product, there are many aspects that needs to be adapted. One should have already done a great analysis on requirement gathering, design and development. One of the most important things is to take confirmation from the client about exact requirements to be implemented and delivered which can make delivery process smooth and less contradictory from a product specification perspective.Quality requirements contribute to the success of agile and traditional project management projects. The requirements definition process followed in a traditional project management framework and the features-based story boarding that is typical of agile approaches are different, but they also have many similarities(Nancy Y.Nee, 2009). One should present all the aspects of feature that are developed and delivered by the team and how they are going to impact the business. Presentation should be focused on the impact of the business after the delivery comes into the picture. As for the client, major expectation is to boost their business and that’s the purpose of the project. So rather than going into the technology stuff, relating a delivery to business growth and end user satisfaction is a good bet. There are most likely cases where a client might not like the feature, but one should be prepared for such situations. Make a check list where there is a probability of conflicts. When this kind of situation encounters, one should have a logical and a practical reason to cover those features. At the time of presenting the final delivery, audience can be a marketing team, business team or a sales team. So the presentation should have a content that can cover everyone’s expectation.
Apart from the project presentation, there has to be a list of deliverable including all the documents and the form of deliverable where one can also get the confirmation from the client that these are the things that are delivered for the phase. This is because there are many cases where conflicts are likely to occur about the deliverables. Also, there has to be a document of requirements, that are matched with the client and the requirements which do not get delivered due to a list of reasons mentioned along with it are known as out of scope requirements.
