  29. 29. Implementation Acceleration Broader than Agile Acceleration is based on sustainable assets and the re-usable content, as well as tools and technology that provide a structure for re-use Acceleration can be accomplished through the elimination of unnecessary work steps within the implementation life cycle Acceleration of implementation and lowering of overall cost can often best be realized through getting it right the first time, eliminating the need for rework and associated delays Acceleration can be achieved through compression techniques such as parallelization of activities and new work shop approaches “If your only tool is a hammer, then every problem begins to look like a nail.” Reduction of Friction Acceleration = x Elimination of Re-Work IP Re-Use x Parallelization Smallest possible increments along a value based roadmap
