Re: Moving towards Go-Live and maximizing our resources
We went live on October 6th, and prior to that I created an action plan categorized by major implementation step toll gates (Plan/Analyze, Design, Build, Test, Validate, Training/Deployment). I had subcategories under each one with due dates so it was evident whether we were ahead, on track, or behind. This was posted on our Daily Management board and at a minimum was reviewed by staff once a week. It also identified owners/resources/roadblocks so current status and expectations were visible to all department heads.
