Three reasons for templating project setup
1. Easier for teams to start working on new projects
When you manage information across many projects, it pays to be consistent. Aim for 80-90% consistency. The remaining 10-20% allows for specific requirements.
If you move between projects where each one is setup differently. It slows you down. You have to learn how each one is configured and how to find information. It creates cognitive overload and results in context switching – multi-tasking’s evil twin.
2. Quicker deployment
If you have a template, it makes it much easier to create and get started. Your agreed template allows us to get your project up and running quickly. Often it’s a quick call to double-check if there are any specific requirements and then you’re good to go.
3. Easier process management
Consistent project configurations make it easier to manage common processes. The reason? Each one will works the same way.
Teams will know what to expect and how to behave on every new project, based on their prior experience. This results in better quality data for your project too.
