work identified in the Imp lamentation Plan will vary considerably
from project to project. We have not tried to cover the work
involved as it would take a book to cover activities
that might be applicable in some circumstances. The work should
however be clearly stated in the plan.
From when the plan is first prepared, work can commence.
A schedule should be drawn up to monitor and control all the
activities. The usual problems relate to people required to
be in too many places at once. For example key people may
be involved in training and testing, and also required to
carry out some other tasks. For this reason, the Implementation
Plan will need to look at the availability of people who may
be involved in other activities.
Another useful technique is to maintain a list of work to
be carried out after implementation. For example someone may
be undertaking some work and find one or two aspects cannot
be completed until after go live. There is a danger that the
work will be forgotten unless a list is maintained of these
