Information Technology - The Implementation Phase: planning and
announcing the implementation
The Implementation Phase: planning and announcing the implementation
Planning the implementation involves identifying where the system changes
will be made, identifying the operators that will be effected by the
changes, identifying equipment to be modified, introduced or made
redundant, identifying staff training requirements and developing a
timeline for the introduction of the new system. Once this has been done,
an announcement of the changeover will be made to all users of the system.
The form that this announcement will take will depend upon the particular
system in question, but typically it will involve all of the staff of the
company, not just those directly affected. This is done because the
productivity of the staff in the divisions where the implementation is
taking place may be affected, and it is important that all staff within the
company need to be aware of these unique (and temporary) factors.
Similarly, it is not uncommon for an organisation to notify customers and
clients of such changes as well. If we think about this, it is not
surprising, as they may be affected by the changes, and it important that
they are aware of the temporary arrangements that may be in place.
