P150-3 Release Implementation Phase

Intended Audience

Business system manager, user, project manager, member of information system architecture team or any other learner who will participate in a release implementation phase.

Content

The most perfect system can fail if the change is not managed.

Throughout the earlier phases of solution delivery, Macroscope reminds us of things that can pave the way for a successful implementation. In the implementation phase, all those preparations are brought to conclusion. In addition to the mechanics of conversion, installation and set-up, we see a strong emphasis on the organizational change – communication, training, work redesign, etc.

This event familiarizes learners with the implementation phase and its deliverables and also reinforces the need to prepare for implementation throughout the solution delivery process.

Target Competencies

At the end of this event, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe the position and purpose of the implementation phase relative to the other phases;
  • Explain how the implementation phase is prepared during the change delivery process;
  • Describe the position and goal of every activity in the phase;
  • Describe the roles and responsibilities of the main participants;
  • Describe the deliverables used and produced during the phase.
