Article #3 of 8 in the series Right First Time written by Alfa (formerly CHP Consulting).
Right First Time #3: Defining the Right Project is available now.
This is the third in a series of articles written by Alfa (formerly CHP Consulting) which cover the tasks that are critical to a successful delivery of complex application replacement. It is based on their experience developed over the last 20 years.
It discusses the tasks and procedures necessary to plan your project effectively and give it detailed, meaningful definition. Making wise decisions at this stage ensures a successful launch and provides a valuable head start in achieving the objectives. Taking a less considered approach can lead to long delivery times and spiralling costs, and may not deliver all of the requirements. Worse yet, it may not deliver at all. The end result, a detailed project definition report, is a description not just of the activities that will deliver the new software into live operation, but also of how this integrates successfully into your technical landscape, how users and business partners are involved in and energised by the change; and how all of this works together to achieve your goals and deliver the success to which you aspire.
Other articles in the series are:
- #1 Preparing your Organisation for Success
- #2 Selecting the Best Partner
- #4 Deploying Future-Proof Technology
- #5 Making Business Change Happen
- #6 Derisking Your Data Migration
- #7 Delivering Change and Realising the Benefits
- #8 Making Complex Projects Run Smoothly
