I wanted to know exactly what happens in the kick off meeting.. will QA also be a part of it??? As far as i know The purpose of the kick-off meeting is to give project team members the opportunity to understand about the project.. and their roles in it. Can i know more about it
Generally a Project kick off meeting consists of all the stakeholders which are nominated for that project for e.g. PM/PL/DEV/Tester/BA/CLient/Network team. Now together they discuss everything related to project with client. Everyone is told their responsibilities. If anyone has any doubts then they get it cleared then and there itself.
Thanks for the info.....the practice what we follow in our project is to get involve the entire stake holder for the kick off meetings, since the QA is one who will audit your process and suggest improvements.
In case of any deviation from the organization process the QA should be aware about, which will not be consider the factor to rate the project in terms of process.
On normal term kick off meeting are conducted at the initial phase of the project (new project) and later on the regular meeting are conducted(Daily stand up meeting/weekly con call's etc).
maintenance projects is not a new project. its a project which has already been developed.. but just some new features are to added or some enhancements will be done to that project.. so.. no requirements will be changed.. even the design would remain the same(mostly). so kick off meeting is not really required.
Pleasee correct me if am wrong.. i amy not be correct.
