The first step in project recovery is to perform Discovery to ascertain where the project is via a thorough review of the existing documentation and system configuration. Utilizing GSI's gSuccess methodology, our Design Deck becomes the basis for our gap analysis. The purpose is to review the "Current State" alongside the "Original Requirements" and then depending on how far the original project got, to validate the configuration within the system.

Discovery 4

  Discovery/Business Value Assessment Document

A review of the company's current state. The review can be of technology, software or business process, all of which are compared to best business practices. From that comparison, a detailed list of our findings and suggestions for improvement is provided.

GAP Analysis

Out of the Discovery phase both the Discovery document and Gap Analysis document are produced. The Discovery document is a summarized listing of the major findings from the Gap Analysis. It lists GSI's observations and risk assessment for each business process. Within each observation, the impact to the implementation or future usability, as well as the opportunity and value proposition statement, are detailed to show the benefit to the company for the recommendation.

Project Timeline

Based on meetings between GSI and the Client, decisions regarding which design changes are going to be incorporated into the project, the Project timeline is produced. The project timeline shows the high-level activities that occur within each phase of the project as well as who is responsible for those activities. It is supported by a detailed project plan that is maintained by the GSI Project Manager.

Timeline 4

Project Timeline Document
A high-level graphical display showing key tasks to be accomplished within each phase of the project recovery project. It provides a better understanding of what is expected to be accomplished within each phase. The timeline is further supported by a detailed project plan.

Project Tasks

The project tasks document is data pulled out of information in the project plan, issues list and gap analysis to summarize by functional area the top-level tasks that need to be completed within each phase of the project showing resource responsibility or comments regarding progress. It is not a separately maintained document, but can be utilized for meeting purposes.

Project Recovery Status Update

Throughout the project, status meetings are held both at a steering committee level as well as with the project team. Our easy to read key performance graphic immediately alerts the reader to potential problems via GREEN, YELLOW and RED indicators. The categories can include “soft” indicators such as Culture to gauge how well the company culture at the Client fits with the GSI culture. A poor culture fit can have detrimental effects to the project just as missing deadlines. This status is backed up by a weekly status report that further goes into the constraints of scope, time and cost.
