This planning activity spans a week during which a comprehensive report is assembled to indicate the readiness of the organisation for MDA. The consultants will draw on their experience both outside and within the MDA process to make recommendations and warn of potential pitfalls.
This activity is based on MDA best practices and also draws on insight drawn from the previous week of reviewing the technical and organisational readiness of the organisation. It includes planning the practical session, evaluating which tools will be appropriate for the client and also comes up with a definite agenda - including targets set during conversations with the project management teams regarding the expected outcome and success criteria. These reports can be prepared offsite to reduce disruption to customer activities.
The net result of this section is a transition plan prepared and presented to management.
