You have been asked to be the project manager for the development of an information technology (IT) project. The system to be developed will allow a large company to coordinate and maintain records of the professional development of its employees. The company has over 30,000 employees who are located in four sites: Atlanta, GA; Houston, TX; Chandler, AZ; and Schaumburg, IL. The system needs to allow employees to locate and schedule professional development activities that are relevant to their positions. Sophisticated search capabilities are required, and the ability to add scheduled events to the employees’ calendars is desired. The system needs to support social networking to allow employees to determine who is attending conferences and events. This will promote fostering relationships and ensure coverage of conferences that are considered of high importance.
Once an activity has been completed, employees will use the system to submit the documentation. The system should support notifications to management personnel whenever their direct reports have submitted documentation. The system should also notify employees if their deadline to complete professional development requirements is approaching and is not yet satisfied. The goal is to get this system up and running at the start of the next fiscal year.
When a project is ready to be deployed, a transition plan can help the transfer of ownership from the project team to the customer or organization that requested the project.
Complete the following:
- For the given scenario, in Section 5 of your overall progressing project, create a project transition plan.
- Note: You can locate a transition plan template or create your own checklist, as long as the information provided is specific to the scenario and is included within Section 4 of your overall project. Transition plans are necessary so that once the implementation and test of the project is completed, the project is properly transitioned. Concerns, such as maintenance, are outlined in the transition plan.
Please submit your assignment.
