  16. Business caseThe 3 key outputs Uncertainties • Can we do it? • (Technical feasibility & Operational feasibility) • Is there a customer for it? • (Commercial feasibility) • Can we make money from it? • (Financial feasibility) Time

  17. BUSINESS CASE deck (SPOC) Why Are We Here? Vision & Objectives Market Review Commercialization Strategy Business Model Alternative Solutions Project Scope Inclusion and Exclusion Project Assumptions & Constraints Project Risks Project Benefits Financials Project Schedule Key Measures of Success Project Structure

  18. THE PROJECT plan Cover page • Two templates: • Innovation project plan • Print sector project plan Signed mandate Approach & schedule Team & risks Budget Detailed activities & appendix

  19. Practical advice • Don’t forget to consider R&D credits and subsidies when preparing your budget. • For more information, consult the questionnaire on the Intranet or contact Roby Matteau.

  20. Scrum roundtable In turn, answer these 4 questions in 2 minutes or less: • Which project are you leading? • What is the current stage of the project? • What roadblocks have you encountered? • What do you see as the next steps to completing your feasibility project? With your arrow, please indicate the current conditions of your project.

  24. The “feasibility Execution” phase Objective: Make good on the project deliverables

  25. Remember… • Roles and responsibilities of the project leader: • Delivers on the project objectives on time and on budget • Prepares the project definition and business plan • Plans the project and manages resources (financial and human) • Identifies risks • Builds the project schedule • Tracks and monitors the project • Reports on the progress made on the project (performance indicators)

  26. Agenda • Summary of eTraining#2 content • The feasibility execution phase • Tracking and reporting • Managing changes within your project • Approvals and gates • The closing / transfer phase • Next steps, wrap-up and review of the objectives

  27. 9-10 7-8 4-6 1-3 On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the performance of your team meetings?

  28. Follow-up meetings vs. work sessions

  29. Practical advice • Establish clear objectives for your team meetings and stay on track.

  30. Tracking and reporting THE project • Tracking • Consists in gathering data on the work progress and costs. • Within the project team • Reporting • Consists in ensuring that the work results are consistent with applicable specifications and standards and in verifying that the work progress is such that the project will come in on time and on budget. • For executive champion, and Media SPOC or Print SMT

  31. Why are tracking and reporting needed? • To ensure everyone is moving in the right direction • To avoid gaps and implement corrective actions • To facilitatecommunication between team members and stakeholders (executive champion, owner, etc.)

  32. What needs to be tracked

  33. In your opinion, who is responsible for tracking and reporting? The executive champion and owner The team as a whole The project leader

  34. Remember… Tracking and reporting is the responsibility of the project leader.

  35. Deploying the communication plan • Share critical information • Who shares what with whom? • E.g.: a team member in charge of market review reports to the project leader on the conclusions of various market research activities. • When and why do they share? • E.g.: upon receiving the conclusions of each activity. • How should the information be transmitted? • E.g.: Documents sent by email 24 hours in advance, discussion via a phone meeting with the project leader • What about changes, problems and pending points? • E.g.: Email the project leader to schedule a phone meeting

  36. Deploying the communication plan • Get critical information quickly • Ensure that team members know precisely what information you will need and when. • Ensure that team members inform you as soon as they encounter any problem.

  37. Deploying the communication plan • Effectively disseminate information to team members and stakeholders (executive champion, owner, etc.) • Keep them involved • Build the “buy-in” for your project.

  38. The communication plan template is located on the Intranet (Innovation section).

  39. EFFECTIVE reporting

  40. Traffic lights:a simple and efficient system

  41. Is this a system you are familiar with? Yes! No

  42. Quality-related Performance • Serves to evaluate project objectives • Green: Everything is going well (minor problems only) • Yellow: A few major problems, but solutions are being implemented • Red: Major problem(s) – no solutions yet Example The workflow process cycle time will take 25% longer than targeted.  Red

  43. Schedule-related Performance • Green: on time • Yellow: there are delays, but they can be bridged and • shouldn’t affect the project delivery date • Red: the delays will affect the project delivery date Example As of today, work on the project has taken 20% more time than expected and will result in our missing our product launch window.  Red

  44. Budget-related Performance • Green: on budget • Yellow: some costs have been slightly exceeded but this will not • compromise the total project budget • Red: the costs exceeded will affect the total project budget Example The interface design of our mobile application cost us $5,000 more than expected, but we can absorb this cost by reducing our market research expenses.  Yellow

  45. MANAGING GAPS • Quickly correcting observed gaps in order to limit the negative impacts on the project proceedings and the achievement of project objectives. • If possible, try to anticipate yellow lights. • Once a gap is observed, appropriate corrective actions must be taken as soon as possible. • The greater the delay in correcting minor gaps, the more likely these gaps will become too significant to be easily rectified.

  46. Agenda • Summary of eTraining#2 content • The feasibility execution phase • Tracking and reporting • Managing changes within your project • Approvals and gates • The closing / transfer phase • Next steps, wrap-up and review of the objectives

  47. Managing changes 3 levels of change: Minor change Moderate change Major change

  48. MINOR CHANGE No impact on the budget or schedule • Present the situation to the project team • Make an agreement to approve the change Example: The programmer we initially intended on hiring to program one of the app’s module is no longer available, but we have access to other programmers.

  49. MODERATE CHANGE This level of change has an impact on the budget and/or schedule, but does not mean the project can’t be completed. • Discuss the change request with the project team • Evaluate the negative impacts on the budget and the schedule, as well as the objectives • Present the revised mandate, budget and schedule to the owner, who must approve the change. Example: Focus groups reveal that the marketing strategy is not well aligned with the target market, so it must be revised.

  50. MAJOR CHANGE Puts the relevance of the project in question: • Discuss with the executive champion / owner Start a separate project to meet this request Kill the current project and start over from scratch or Example: On-going business intelligence activities reveal that a solution already exists. Consider killing the current project and starting a new one with a view to white-labeling available solutions.
