Quality of documents says it all about the health of the project

A software project has to undergo various stages before reaching the final stage of customer sign off. At each stage of the project there are certain set of documents that are maintained by the project team for internal or external purposes.

These documents are prepared by various team members – by business analysts, by coders, by project manager, by testers and by other managers.

The Quality and maturity of documents straightaway tell about the health of the project, the team, the management, the product and the progress. It tells clearly about the intentions behind the documentation – that if it is merely a formality or it is really meant for helping the project progress.

And it is not difficult to ascertain the intentions after going through the documents maintained or being maintained during the project.

    I agree that the quality of documents is very revealing - how much analysis and planning has gone into the process. I have generally had interested/affected parties engage in the document creation process and they have participated in procuring approvals from management, each step along the way.

    "I have generally had interested/affected parties engage in the document creation process and they have participated in procuring approvals from management, each step along the way." that is a great clue. i think if in all projects this starts happening it will definitely boost up the progress of a project. thanks for this lovely piece of advice.
