When starting a project, there are many things to consider. One key area is risk. You need to prepare ahead of time for all the things that could go wrong…or go right! Another key area is quality. How are you going to ensure that your product or service meets stakeholders' expectations? And then there's figuring out whether to do all the work in-house or outsource it to a third party.
