Project Implementation and Closure Plan – Rough comments
Project Measurable Organizational Value (MOV)
The Pilot Angels’ Project will be a success if the Tiger Team consulting firm can increase Husky Air’s profit by 10 % over the next 12 months with the new information system (IS).
The Tiger Team consulting firm has decided to implement the new system using a direct cutover strategy. The system implementation target date will be June 24th, 2022, which means employees will no longer use file folders to keep track of the pool of pilot volunteers after this date. The new computer-based Pilot Angels system will be put in use after extensive testing has been performed.
The Tiger Team believes that the project will be completed as planned and achieves its objectives. The team developed a checklist to ensure that the Pilot Angels project’s objectives have been met and the project is ready to be closed. The project closure checklist consists of the following:
1. Formal hand-off to Husky Air
2. Close project documents, accounts, and contracts
3. Feedback from project members
Project Evaluation (including how MOV will be evaluated)
The evaluation for the Pilot Angels projects details what went well during the project and what did not go well. Below is the project evaluation process for the Pilot Angels project:
1. Based on the project charter established, all project members needed to remain engaged and punctual throughout the project. The project manager feels that team member A needs to improve on his communication based on a few failed attempts to get a hold of him.
2. In evaluating the information system to determine if the project achieved its MOV, the benefits of the implemented system can already be demonstrated.
