During this phase we will conduct a series of Interactive Requirements and Design Workshops (IRDWs) with key stakeholders and SMEs to:
- Evaluate all critical requirements for design options and preferences.
- Review Business Process Redesign (BPR) documents and discuss best practices and establish design specifications and parameters.
- Review and confirm global design to support institution-wide reporting, analytics, and planning.
The IRDW “deep-dive” collaborative design sessions result in signoff of the functional and technical design, the requirements from which are collected by project team (along with system defaults and configuration items) and entered into DriveMethod to form the Requirement Traceability Matrix (RTM), which is closely monitored throughout implementation.
The RTM, depicted in the figure below, is the set of project tasks and success criteria tracked through project completion, the real-time status of which is always readily available to any project team member.
