  12. Project Management Processes Diagnostic Analysis Design Development Deployment Operation • Project management processes: • Organize project management tasks into three groups based on the implementation project lifecycle • Provide task-based guidance for starting, executing, and closing a project • Align with the phases of the methodology • Consist of tasks from each project management discipline

  13. Project Management Components Solution: Project management components integrated—broadly and deeply—throughout the Sure Step Methodology • Tasks are integrated in each phase • Disciplines organize tasks into specific knowledge areas • Processes drive a systematic approach to planning, executing, and closing implementation projects • Cross-phase processes provide project-wide views of key implementation tasks • Project management deliverables are integrated throughout the methodology • Additional resources support project management tasks Operation Analysis Design Diagnostic Development Deployment Project Management

Diagnostic Phase: Best Practices • Ensure that the handoff from Sales to Implementation includes all the information gathered during the sales process • Understand the customer’s motivation for undertaking the implementation project • Show the customer the type of deliverables created during the Diagnostic phase • Use a WBS from a previous project as a template for new projects • Determine level of infrastructure analysis based on implementation type • Present the Diagnostic results and proposal in person to the customer

  20. Analysis Phase: Key Deliverables

  21. Analysis Phase: Best Practices • Determine the level for detailed business processes analysis and then identify an analysis strategy • Decide quickly if system enhancements will be added to the current project scope or deferred to a future project • Include visual diagrams to depict business processes in the Functional Requirements document to show how the solution will enhance processes • Do not underestimate the importance of the project scope statement • Maintain a list of ISV solutions that your organization has approved and implemented • Communicate the purpose of business process analysis to customer employees • Do not judge the customer’s current business processes or make comments to the customer about them
