The Project Process

Technology Services (TS) Project Process 

 

Phases of a Project

1.

Proposed

An initial idea or request is presented for consideration.

 

2.

Research/Analysis

IT will assign an analyst or programmer who will work with the requestor as a Project Team to do Research/Analysis or Planning.  The Project Team gathers requirements to facilitate the project. 

 

3.

Approved

After working through the analysis, the project receives the approval to proceed.

 

4.

Planning

The Project Team develops a work breakdown schedule and determines level of effort.  Consideration has to be given for the analyst’s or programmer’s project load, the availability schedule for the project requestor to work on the project, and the target completion date of the project.    

 

5.

Implementation

The Project Team performs the work to complete the project. This phase likely includes design, development, testing and deployment.  The final requirement is an email ‘sign off’ from the requestor that the project is ready to be implemented.     

 

6.

A defined period of time, following deployment of the project into production, where the Project Team remains assigned to the project to address any issues that may arise due to the deployment of the project.
