During this phase,
the solution is developed and optimized until it is deemed ready for production

three interim milestones.
- Lab Testing
of Concept Complete
application development projects, interim milestones should be versioned
internal releases. During the developing phase, the team should also try
to achieve a visual design freeze and a database freeze, even though these
are not interim milestones.
The Developing Phase
includes five deliverables:
purpose of the pilot is to test the solution in a real environment.
With this in mind, the pilot needs to include representatives from
every user community and usage scenario impacted and to validate
the implementation, training, and support plans and procedures that
will be used in the production rollout.
probability of success of any infrastructure project is contingent
upon the quality and appropriateness of the training provided to
the respective users. While training is not an end product of the
project, it is a critical component in determining the positive
or negative impact of the solution.
planning and the optimization of infrastructure components are two
activities that must be approached cautiously and systematically
because the conclusions drawn from these activities can dramatically
impact the overall effectiveness of critical business processes.
purpose of the Business Continuation Plan is to recover only the
elements of the technology that are essential for conducting business,
to minimize downtime and loss of revenue. Disaster recovery encompasses
business continuation and extends to the restoration of systems
to their pre-failure state.
Rollout Plan is a step-by-step strategy for effectively deploying
the solution to the targeted users with minimal disruption to the
organizations day-to-day activities. It should address the
technical design and implementation issues associated with the new
technology and incorporate the training, security, procurement,
and support plans and procedures discussed earlier.
application development projects, the deliverables for Scope Complete
are a bit different:
master risk assessment document
- User performance
master project plan and revised master project schedule
Developing Phase, the entire team is focused on refining the proposed
technology infrastructure functionality (or application) into a high-quality,
responsible for developing and deliverying commnuications to the user
community outside the project team.
Responsible for managing the functional specification and ensuring that
the solution developed during this phase meets those specifications.
for the actual development work of all aspects of the solution.
for documenting the solution, developing, purchasing, or modifying training
materials, maintaining the training plan, and communicating and advocating
for the users and their requirements.
Responsible for testing each aspect of the solution, making issues known
to the appropriate member or members of the teadm, testing documentation,
and managing the testing plan.
for developing the rollout and site preparation checklists, and updating
the deployment and pilot plans.
The Developing Phase
culminates in the Scope Complete/First Use Milestone.
At this milestone,
the team has validated that the solution has the desired functionality
and is stable enough to implement in full-scale production and that the
known issues are being managed. This is also where the essential implementation,
training, and support plans and procedures are defined.
