Project Management Plan Review

See how these advisory components fit into the overall service matrix by downloading a one-page PDF here.

After you’ve decided to undertake a big change with your technology strategy you want to ensure its success. I’ve implemented hundreds of tech rollouts and I am proud to say I’ve never had a single one forced to roll back after it went live. But too many products face time and budget overruns for lack of planning, scope creep, improper testing during the development phase, and an improper go-live strategy.

With this service, I will review your technical project plan to identify gaps and weaknesses. I have a 3-phased approach that has yet to fail me on a product rollout whether it’s been for 10 people or 100,000.

With this engagement we will review:
• Project Scope
• Project Champions
• Project Resources
• Project Budget
• Project Timeline
• Project Key Milestones
• Project Communication Plan
• Project Risk Mitigation
• Project Development (i.e. the work)
• Project Deployment
• Project Quality Assurance
• Project Close Out

The size of your undertaking will determine the breadth and depth of each of the categories. The goal is to ensure a successful rollout of the new technology and ensure that end users are able to utilize the new tools successfully. This will typically can serve as a framework for future projects in your technology pipeline.
