“If you put a good teacher into a bad system, the system wins every time.” It was a saying used at the Department of Education to remind everyone who was building educational systems to build them correctly to allow teachers to teach.
When we look at project teams we should follow the same advice. If we build systems that are cumbersome and prevent team members from focusing on project delivery then team members will fail and projects will fail.
The right systems focus on simplicity and accuracy. Build a systems with sound processes, a focus on the usability and change management then the right system will support delivery every time.
