Our Approach

Initiate

The project initiation process brings together all of the information required to commence the project and ensures that there is a joint understanding to the project requirements and objectives. Our initiation process includes:

  • Clarification of the project purpose and justification
  • Stakeholder – needs analysis
  • Designation of user requirements
  • Establishment of clear and shared project objectives
  • Generation of options to deliver the project objectives
  • Evaluation of options and selection of the most appropriate
  • Documentation of this process as the Project Proposal/Definition Document
Plan

Aquasora’s planning process incorporates the:

  • Development of an approach that met the client’s requirements
  • Definition of the resource requirements and project schedule

Critical supporting plans and frameworks include the:

  • Development of a risk management framework to manage the identified project risks for each migration stage and developed a risk management plan and process.
  • Monitoring and management of project risks – stakeholder meetings and remediation action plans
  • Establishment of the project governance structure – scheduled progress and performance meetings and project reporting plan; and a testing process involving defined approach and team structure
  • Articulation of a stakeholder management process within the project by facilitated meetings, project reporting, executive presentations and exercising a defined escalation process to project sponsor and senior executives as required
