Step Three: Rapid Prototype - Continuously demonstrate functionality

 

  • Step 3A: Develop Project Plan with Expected Deliveries
    • Develop first draft project plan that successively delivers functionality with the following priorities:
      • Highest risk areas developed and delivered first to give maximum time for any needed iterations based on real feedback
      • Largest impact on people and processes delivered next to give maximum time for any needed iterations based on real feedback
      • Largest ROI to the client organization so maximum benefit can be realized in the fastest possible cycle time.
      • Include ongoing maintenance plan for after project plan is fully executed
    • Review project plan with client to validate assumptions and understandings
    • Finalize initial draft of project plan. Plan can and often will be adjusted as the real feedback from ongoing deployment is processed
    • The finalized draft is referred to as a Statement of Implementation (SOI) and includes the project plan and ongoing maintenance plan.
  • Step 3B: Execute Project Plan
    • Execute the project plan with engineering competency and diligence
    • Demonstrate functionality with each delivery
    • Receive real feedback from client deployments
    • Process real feedback and adjust project plan / design / implementation with client input as needed
    • Ensure all deliverables full satisfied
    • Validate proper end-to-end operation
  • Step 3C: Execute Ongoing Maintenance Plan
    • Adjust maintenance plan as needed with client feedback
    • Formally enter maintenance plan as per agreement
    • Adjust maintenance plan as needed with client feedback
  • The Statement of Implementation will be signed off upon at the end of Step 3A, and will contain the fee schedule.
