Information Project Management - The Implementation Plan
The last document we will provide for your review before work on your project begins is the Implementation Plan.
After you accept the proposal, we will discuss your timing expectations for the project, taking into account things like
vacation schedules and organizational deadlines that will determine the availability of selected representatives for milestone
meetings and project testing. The information provided during that meeting will be incorporated in the Implementation Plan.
The plan will include:
  1. A diagram that will illustrate the sequence in which all of the project elements will be developed.
    The diagram will include
    • milestones marked with approximate dates
    • meeting dates
    • payment dates
    • testing dates
    • rollout dates for project elements
    and will be accompanied by a description of the implementation process.

  2. A discussion of general project management procedures that will support Information By Design's commitment
    providing all of the project elements (deliverables) within the time and budget expectations described in the Project Proposal and Implementation Plan.

    That discussion considers the need for communication between you and Information By Design, where project management ends and information environment management begins, and procedures to manage change. Good change management is often the key to a successful project--no matter how careful we are to correctly describe and define a project, change is always with us.

  3. Acceptance Forms Whenever a discrete project element is completed, we will ask you to submit the relevant acceptance form. For example, you may have decided that your information sources will include a new survey. When the survey design is complete, you will be asked to accept it. There will also be an acceptance form that refers to the entire project.
