Topic Teasers Vol. 86: The Failure Repository

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I’m not in IT, but I’m heading a project to implement one of those big name software packages that is supposed to place all the corporate information in one application. We’ve rolled it out, but as a 24-hour organization it seems that we have departments unable to access their information at all hours of the day and night. Our vendor is on call for the fixes, but the outages interrupt our business. I’m discouraged, angry and exhausted. How do I manage these issues?
A. With a big name supplier, the responsibility to keep things up and going is on their shoulders, not yours. Contact upper management and ask to have any payments to them stopped until all areas of your organization are up and running with no down time for at least six weeks.
B. Each department was probably given a chance to express what connectivity they needed before the customization of this overriding package was finalized. Get the name of each person who was part of the planning team and subsequently had an outage in their area and report them to their own manager.
C. Ask your own IT team to get involved in solving these issues. Obviously, the vendor does not have competent people on its staff who can manage an install like yours. If your own internal staff takes over the responsibility, you will have better communication and a team that understands the high stakes when your systems go down.
D. The reality of any install that must switch over an entire organization at one time is that there are going to be hiccups. But as a non-IT expert, the most productive path for you is to create a way that the failures can be grouped and tracked so that past problems can be easily accessed to provide faster solutions to new outages or feature failures that occur.
