Set up the project
Once you have investigated the positive and negative aspects of upgrading or replacing your system, the decision to investigate upgrading or replacing your system has been made, the corresponding project management process basics must be addressed. They should cover all applicable aspects of generic project management practices including:
- identify team members – you need representation of your local Public Safety leadership, purse holders, system users and technical experts,
- define the project objectives (results, timeline, budgetary assumptions),
- allocate responsibilities and authority,
- establish clear guidelines on the basics of your project communications (who, what, when and how often).
You should consider using well-established Project Management concepts, such as those developed by Project Management Institute (PMI), right from the beginning of
your project. These processes and guidelines will provide you with valuable checklists to ensure that you do not overlook any important aspects.
