Project Initiation : So you have got a project,first step is to Receive the PO from Geography account or the document which has details on the order,the next steps would be to
- Identify the SPM/PM for the project
- Handover the project information to SPM – Typcially the project is handover from PreSales / Sales
- Understanding the Project Requirements – This will be done during the handover session from PreSales / Sales,this serves as a point where PM can seek details on what are the soft commitments,assumptions,various risks etc.,
- Plan development startegy – This includes preparing a rough draft startegy on the life cycle model to be used,development environment,release validation etc.,
- Prepare Cost Plan – Understand the effort,manpower & prepare the cost plan,reviewed and get it approved.
- Conduct Kick Off Meeting – OK,now you are ready to kick-off the project.Call all the stakeholders & highlight the development startegy,risks etc., And also document discussions in minutes of meeting(MOM)
