The Go Live Readiness Assessment is a review of all aspects
of the implementation. It is broader than the mandatory items
identified in the Go Live Acceptance Criteria.
Go Live Readiness Assessment can be progressively prepared
as the phase progresses. As each element of the preparation
is completed, the Readiness Assessment can be updated with
the status of that element.
It is non negotiable that the Pre Go Live Acceptance Criteria
should all be signed off before the meeting takes place. These
are the mandatory deliverables and if they
cannot be achieved, consideration of other aspects should
not take place. The meeting should not be held.
In terms of participants, there should be representatives
of all areas of the project. This included a person who can
authorise the Go Live to proceed from the following stakeholder
groups. Business, Development, Testing, Infrastructure, Vendors,
Support and Service Desk. All should agree that they are comfortable
to commence the Go Live activities.
