Implementation Methodology Top companies turn to Catalyst when they need the skills, experience, and people to transform their project management performance and results.  While each engagement has unique requirements and objectives, Catalyst’s engagement approach uses our proprietary Implementation Methodology as the foundation for action.

 

  • Preparation:  Gather and analyze information about implementation objectives and scope, success criteria, resources, constraints, processes and procedures, interfaces and organizational capacity for change.
  • System Design:  Produce a design specification covering software installation, configuration, customization, data structures, data exchange requirements, performance reporting, forecasting requirements and operational procedures.
  • System Build:  Complete software installation and construct and test prototype solutions, conforming to the design specification and using client data.
  • Pilot Trial:  Conduct a live trail using a subset of client production data and users to assess process and system fit.
  • Deployment:  Extend the pilot trial to encompass all users, including comprehensive training, data migration and “go-live” support.
  • User Adoption:  provide group and individual performance coaching to develop competency with the new methods and system.

 

Throughout the implementation we communicate progress and highlight issues to be addressed and, most importantly, transfer knowledge and skills to the organization.  A Catalyst Implementation is something we do with you, not to you!
