FATCA Lessons Learned

finartDuring recent projects I have gathered lessons learned. The key lessons are listed below:

  1. One (US person) policy per business line;
  2. Project per country, workstreams per business line;
  3. Use company vision to settle strategic decisions;
  4. Use the strategic decisions to align implementation;
  5. Find owner and get him to act;
  6. Key decisions need to be reinforced regularly;
  7. Track Requirements through to realization;
  8. Use a solution architecture approach (TOM);
  9. Check content, not just if planning is realized;
  10. Budget is a local concern, solutions are the central concern.
