extent of this activity will be determined by how much time
has passed since the list was updated during Configuration
and Customisation. In larger projects this can be weeks and
in that time other factors emerged that will need to be added.
The project is usually in a volatile state at this time. Up
to now, it was focused on bringing together a solution that
could be used with the business. As the business is rarely
in a static state, we now need to ensure the implementation
will align with current - and near future - business conditions.
Some examples may be:
- The extent and timing of training to
fit with other business priorities such as conferences
- The people to be trained due to resignations
- Change of roles by particular individuals
- Customer changes that will impact the implementation
- Lead time for advice to suppliers
At a minimum, assuming it is only a matter of days since
the last update, the list should be reviewed by key players
to look for any additional activities. If new players are
involved in the project during implementation, they should
also be given an opportunity to contribute.
