Wish lists versus actual needs and business requirements: The functional specification is not aligned with user’s needs or business requirements. This is more common for internal applications such as Intranets or portals. In many cases, the project committee neglects to perform a sound internal survey and defines functionality by generalizing individual employees’ wishes without any sound proves. Capturing the feedback of internal users across the organization allows determining the critical functionality. To effectively perform a survey a representative set of employees need to be questioned. Further these employees need to be categorized into profiles. The profiles need to be characterized by for example, frequency of usage of the Intranet, estimated duration by visit, usage of the Intranet to facilitate their daily tasks, contribution to the business, etc. Based on this information the Web team can then prioritize the functionality and choose the most effective and relevant functionality for the next release. Less critical or less important functionality may be part of future releases (roadmap) or dropped. If such a sound decision process is not performed, it may happen that functionality is developed but only used by few users and the return of investment is not achieved.

Once you’re the best, there is no incentive to push any harder and laziness or complacency start to set in and you are at risk of being bashed on all sides by every competitor… bashed by everyone working to be better. Now you know that for all those “bests” out there who believe their motivation is to stay the best, they are only fooling themselves. The motivation to improve, to get better, is always more powerful than the false incentive to stay in one place, even if it’s the best.
