Sign #9: Unrealistic timelines and deadlines
When considering the project goals, metrics and measurements – make sure the business cycle supports the expected change. For example if through high performance driving we expect to replace fewer tires and have fewer brake maintenance transactions (or other routine or catastrophic transactions) a complete maintenance life cycle against control data needs to be evaluated – and this particular metric may take a year, or longer, depending on year make an model. Installation of technology needs to be considered in the project timeline. The upfront design of the program need sufficient time before the installation project begins.
