  • 7. The Project A Bank Network Upgrade • • • • • • • Part of bank teller system replacement programme to employ Java based applications Network to introduce QoS (Quality of Service) banding – Gold for high demand applications (40% b/w) – Silver for general demand applications (next 30%) – Bronze – backoffice applications (20% b/w) QoS was a new concept indicating that the required solution to Prioritize traffic would have to evolve Scope was two years old so requirements would have to be reviewed as well as equipment Proof of Concept (PoC)facilities no longer available from the incoming Telco (Optus)so alternative had to be sourced PoC was allocated one (1) month to complete defining, testing and piloting the Gold, Silver and, as Could, Bronze. Estimates for Effort would be broad as new functionality and no known active solution for this type of network PRINCE2® ® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Cabinet Office The APMG Swirl Agile Project Management Device is a Trade Mark of APM Group Ltd.
  • 8. The Project Plan • Initial Project Start Up employing PRINCE2® as the primary methodology • Stage 1- (P2) Initiating a Project used to setup and review Project in detail • Stage 2 - (P2) Redefine current scope, Pre Project phase for Stage 3, Tenders for Integrators • Stage 3 – (APM) Define and Develop requirements for technical solution, deploy 1st Pilot • Stage 4 – (APM-P2) Refine Technical solution (Pilot feedback), 1st Pilot - Engage Integrator • Stage 5 – (APM-P2) Refine Technical solution (Pilot feedback), 2nd Pilot - Plan National Roll-Out • Stage 6 – (P2) First group of Retail Banks for Live Upgrade • Stage 7 – (P2) Upgrade remaining 345 retail branches Nationwide PRINCE2® ® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Cabinet Office The APMG Swirl Agile Project Management Device is a Trade Mark of APM Group Ltd.

  • 11. Stage 3 – AgilePM managed Increment (P2 stage) HighLevel • Stage 3 – (APM) Define and Develop requirements for technical solution, deploy 1st and 2nd Pilots to check initial design PRINCE2® ® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Cabinet Office The APMG Swirl Agile Project Management Device is a Trade Mark of APM Group Ltd.
  • 12. Stage 3 – AgilePM Development Phase • • • • Use Feasibility/Foundations to define and prioritize the requirements to be delivered over how many increments. Approach was to build the “Gold” application configuration requirements during the 1st increment and deploy into the 1st Pilot Feedback on the 1st Pilot (HeadOffice branch) was fed back to 2nd Timebox for further refinement 2nd Pilot used for checking Telco configurations and hence full “Gold” function PRINCE2® ® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Cabinet Office The APMG Swirl Agile Project Management Device is a Trade Mark of APM Group Ltd.

  • 19. Summary of Presentation • PRINCE2 and Atern AgilePM can be used to deliver projects of varying delivery requirements and needs • Most projects are probably in reality managed this way • There are some direct correlations between the processes/phases of both methodologies • Not necessary to marry these up directly, more important to know and understand how each can be best employed for each project PRINCE2® ® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Cabinet Office The APMG Swirl Agile Project Management Device is a Trade Mark of APM Group Ltd.
