Project Management Framework

Using advanced digital technology to realize challenging business ambitions has a lot of potential but also has the risk of being overwhelming in possibilities. That’s where the Gen25 Discovery is of great value. We facilitate a deep-dive, divided in 4 stages, on how to convert your business challenge into your digital solution.

Any ambition without a plan is a dream. To make ambitions a reality you have to work on a clear definition of which problem (or challenge) you want to solve, What resources are necessary, which timeline is realistic and what should be the outcome? We know that’s not new. But we also realize that using the advantages of rapidly developing cloud technology to realize your ambitions can be something you don’t do every day. In this case, we’ve got you covered.

1.

What is the Initiation phase?

This phase is usually not a project phase because its a preparation phase by the client where they work on the pre-requisites to initiate a project. During this phase, the client should create a business case in which they motivate the problem/need, solution direction, objectives, expected deliverables, cost estimation, ROI, stakeholders and client project team in order to get an approval and have a mandate to initiate the project. Usually Gen25 supports the client in this phase which is also called the "pre-sales phase". In this phase a combination of Sales Representatives and Solution Architects describe what the general scope and clients objectives are. Based on that the Gen25 team determines what kind of approach and methodology suits the client. The timelines and resource requirements are also estimated and the governance is shaped. This will be documented in the form of a plan of approach which will be proposed to the client. If the client approves by signing the SoW (requirements, scope, cost estimation), another level of deepening will start which is called the "Definition Phase".

2.

What is the Definition phase?

In this phase the project manager will create a project plan which consists of the management summary, project definition, objectives, scope, deliverables, success criteria, dependencies,  planning, budget, stakeholders, governance, risk analysis and communication plan. Before one can create a project plan there need to be conversations with the client where Gen25 will have the requirements and scope validated and documented as well as the desired processes. If, required Gen25 can also assist here in the setup of user stories, epics and other Agile topics like sprint plan and user story backlog. Based on the complete scope and requirements, the solution architect can complete the Solution Design.  Client needs to agree with the Solution Design in order to begin with the next project phase, "Execution".    

3.

Architecture and roadmap

The third step in the Discovery is the matching of the business challenge and epics with an architectural design. This means we cross the epics with workflows and processes and create an overview of the systems which are required and how they ideally interact. With the ever increasing amount of data and the potential this has, we incorporate the usage of analytics and no-code/low-code AI (such as Einstein) in the drawing of the architectural and workflow design. For the realisation of the architectural design in practice, we will deliver a roadmap which considers business value versus costs and complexity to prioritize actions and deliver a phased approach.
