What is your immediate plan with your new product or service? Did you follow through all the steps to create a product or service ready for customers? Don’t let your new creation set on the shelf and wait for customers to read your mind – get your new contraption out there.
I will continue with my nine-blog session on Project Management. I will expand on each management segment of my past blog on Project Management.
Implementation Management – this process has two parts. 1) When the project management planning is complete, the project will begin. You will make sure that all parts of the project management process are used throughout the process. 2) Your completed product/service will go to the customer (go-live). Communicate to those involved who manufacture and sell this new product or service. Which staff members are responsible for the new product or service? Make sure your sales staff knows everything about your new product/service.
Project implementation begins with your mission statement and your company core values. When you create a new product or service, you will develop a strategy for the project to start, build and finish. Read through the project management strategies (scope, time, etc.) and now you are ready to work in your project. You are now a project manager, will oversee all processes while you work on the project. Don’t forget to communicate, keep records, avoid problems and keep the project on time and within budget.
Keep your customers informed about your project – if need be. When you have finished the project, it is time to present your new product to your existing and/or new customers. Make sure the completed project is what you and the customers expect. If you have a production process, you will need to communicate with the one responsible to manufacture your product so that person knows everything needed to produce quality products and services. This comes back to the mission statement and core values. Does your new product/service represent your company and you? What have you learned from this process that you can take with you for the next project? Implement all project management principles from start to presenting to the customer and your company will prosper.
A job worth doing is worth doing right. I’m sure you’ve heard that before. Implement your project so your customers will benefit. If all project management principles have been used properly, your project has come to a successful completion. Good work.
Implementation Project Management Check List
1) Use project management strategies for your new product/service that reflect your company’s mission statement and core values.
2) Make sure you and all involved with your project understand and agrees to the project management process.
3) While you work on the project keep all the project management principles current so your project will not stray away from your plants.
4) When the project is completed, delivered the product/service to your customers – make sure all those who deliver your product/service (sales, manufacturing, etc.) are up to date with the specifications and will not send out a low-quality product/service to your customers.
