EXAMPLE OF STEPS IN A SAMPLE MEDIUM SIZED SYSTEMS CHANGE PROJECT
We give some high level initial estimates and start discovery work to understand what you are trying to achieve.
Assuming approval of these estimates we take your particular piece of work and turn it into a structured project, using an appropriate project management methodology.
The preparation can be big or small depending on the size of the job. We start by establishing the terms of reference, key project personnel, scope and very high level requirements for the project.
Usually we get the key stakeholders into a room, several times if required, to brainstorm until we have :
- made the necessary core decisions
- detailed major risks & mitigations
- captured key issues & related actions
- produced a project plan or programme of work
- provided enough information for more detailed estimates of time & cost.
Together we identify what resources are required to initiate your project, either:
- completing the work ourselves, pulling in whatever resources we require
- helping focus and drive your own people / subject matter experts
- helping you to acquire the correct resources to do the job
- some combination of the above
Then, together as a project team, we implement the project plan, depending on the size and scope of the system being implemented, using a waterfall, agile or hybrid methodolgy as required and complete some/ all of the following:
- gather detailed requirements
- manage solution design /options assessment process
- refine estimates of time and cost
- build or procure and configure the right solution, with or without external vendors
- technically test it
- implement it in a test or pre-production environment or by live pilot
- carry out user testing, fix and re-test
- manage it through Go-Live and roll out
- provide support & handover to the business users.
At the same time you would make the project a business priority and free up the resources and money required.
While we are not all technical geniuses or subject matter experts in every field, NZeC Consultancy can provide the skills required to identify and manage a huge variety of specialists and deliver the outcome required our clients
NO FRILLS, KEEPING IT ALL JOINED UP AND STRAIGHT UP
We realise that this all may sound simplistic to those in the IT industry, lacking as it does all the latest buzzwords and liberal doses of agile terminology. However one of our primary target markets are those clients who just want to cut through the mustard, get the right support and get on with it, delivering results.
Our collective experience is that if everyone understands the basics, keeps on board, and we work hard, smart and fast, in a joined up manner, giving realistic expectations, then a project has a real chance of success.
We have seen too many failed projects over the years, many with big budgets and jargon rich environments, with some big players, where key people were to cool to remember the basics, blew a whole load of money and delivered either no results or poor results.
Don’t let that be you and your organisation!
