Mobilising a project team to work on creating the project’s products, realising its eventual outcomes, while balancing the dynamics of time, cost, quality and risk is the purpose of the Live Phase.
Tailorable to your organisation's projects framework, Solverboard provides the project governance to set the stages that the business case shall be continually reviewed and verified by the Project Board.
Combining the concept of releases allows the project team autonomy and flexibility to manage early deployment (where appropriate) to end-users and customers to get early benefit realisation and feedback.
The Live Phase is about managing work, creating output, controlling impacting factors, and tracking tasks, costs, and benefits using the plans developed in the planning phase. When all project stages are finished, the project is marked “complete” and it moves into the Realising Phase.
- Authorise and commence work.
- Track status of work and costs; create new task assignment or authorise work packages as required in line with your plan.
- Manage release deployments building in feedback to future releases.
- Continue to identify, assess and manage risk, opportunities, issues, stakeholders and lessons learned updating your project plans as a result of any change.
- Continually evaluate and track financial benefits, non-financial benefits and project cost and the ongoing alignment to the project’s business case.
- Repeat steps 1-5 until approaching the end of stage time-box or achievement of stage objectives.
- Conduct ‘Planning a project’ sub-process for the subsequent stage.
- Convene Stage Review.
- Repeat steps 1-8 until the project has completed all of its stages.
- Click the ‘Complete Project' button to complete the project but leave open to track the realisation of benefits.
