Description

This phase provides initial planning and preparation for the project. Although each project
has its own unique objectives, scope, and priorities, the deliverables outlined below assist
in completing the initiation and planning steps in an efficient and effective manner.

The purpose of this project initiation deliverable is to formally recognize that a new project exists. It
supports the decision to accept the project, align stakeholders such as clients, customers, and
SAP management around a project and its scope, provide updated information for planning,
and obtain a commitment to proceed. It ensures alignment between SAP, the customers strategic
direction, and the satisfaction of operational requirements.

The purpose of phase resources allocation is a confirmation of resource availability for the
particular phase.
The purpose of this activity is to prepare the onboarding package for external consultants from
SAP and partner companies.
The purpose of this deliverable is to ensure that an efficient management framework is in place for
successful project execution.

The purpose of this task is to determine the structure and composition of agile teams in order to
optimally setup the project organization in line with agile principles. It is required to setup agile
teams as cross functional groups that consist of SCRUM master, Product Owner and team
members. Team size should be 7 +/- 2 members. The cross-functional team needs to be
composed of business analyst, functional experts, technical experts and testers required to fully
implement feature in iteration.

The purpose of this task is to complete the communications management plan. This document
outlines the processes required to ensure timely generation, distribution, storage, and retrieval of
project information.

The purpose of this deliverable is to clearly and explicitly define the objectives of the proposed
project, analyze all possible benefits and quantify benefits in financial terms. This information and
supporting documents align key stakeholders around the strategic intent of the project.

The purpose of this activity is to collect all input required for the project charter and document it
into a format suitable for both communication purpose as for formal sign-off purpose, if possible
utilizing the accelerator file(s) provided

The purpose of this activity is to ensure that the correct groupings of stakeholders have been
identified for the project.

The purpose of this task is to build agile awareness of key stakeholders, secure commitment to
adopt standard SAP functionality where possible. It is recommended to conduct informal and
formal meetings to set the expectations and confirm the project approach with key project
stakeholders.

The purpose of this activity is to achieve a formal sign-off of the project charter.
The purpose of this deliverable is to kick-off the project/phase and ensure that all needed
information is shared with the resources for a successful project execution.

The purpose of this task is to prepare the kickoff meeting which will helps ensure the involvement
of the team and other key resources and their commitment to the project schedule.

The purpose of this activity is to gather the whole project team, including all remotely involved
resources, to kick-off the project or project phase. The meeting is also used to examine the
approach for the specific project phase.

The purpose of this deliverable is to facilitate an initial understanding of the project scope and
associated project-related assumptions and constraints. The project scope statement evolves
through the initiation and planning of the project and clearly and explicitly defines the deliverables
of the proposed project. This information and supporting documents align key stakeholders
around what the project is going to deliver.

The purpose of this activity is to collect and document both process-related as well as project-/nonprocess-related customer requirements, which in summary and as appendix become part of the
scope statement

The objective of this task is to review the scope statement document with the customer project
manager and key stakeholders in order to confirm the scope and obtain approval.

The purpose of this task is to determine all gaps for customer solution, document them formally
and estimate effort to cover the identified gaps.

The objective of this task is to present the results of fit gap analysis to customer including the
effort estimates to cover the identified gaps as part of the project/service delivery.

The purpose of this task is to create the work breakdown structure (WBS) for the project, which is
a deliverable-oriented, hierarchical decomposition of the work to be executed by the project team
to complete the project. It is the basis for the organization and coordination of the project. A WBS
consists of WBS elements that describe project tasks and subtasks to perform within a defined
time period.

The purpose of this activity is to clearly define the acceptance criteria against which project
deliverables and results are measured that have been listed in the Scope Statement. These
should also be updated in the Project Quality Gate Scorecard. In the context of Agile projects this
translates to the definition of Done for the backlog items that are being delivered in the project.

Purpose of this task is to obtain customer approval (sign-off)

The purpose of the Project Schedule deliverable is to define the work schedule to be followed, the
resources and associated time commitments required for the project and the phases of the
project. The work breakdown structure (WBS) serves as the foundation for the schedule, the
deliverables to be produced and tasks to be performed, as part of the project. The project budget,
including monitoring and control, outlines all costs associated with the project, including labor,
hardware, software, contracting fees, and facilities.
At a minimum, the schedule should include:
Deliverables and tasks for the current phase
Estimated effort (work) and duration
Task dependencies (such as predecessors and successors)
Scheduled start and finish dates for each task, based on dependencies
Task constraints (such as must-start-on date and must-finish-on date)
Resources assigned to each task
High-level schedule for subsequent phases

The purpose of this task is to define a high level release plan, determine the length and number of
sprints per release. During this activity the project team needs to take into accounts business
needs, project objectives & goals, available technical environment, complexity of the solution,
geographical and organizational scope of the project and other aspects (like seasonality of
customer's business). The outcome of this task is high level release plan that includes key
features targeted in each release and number/duration of sprints (note that the sprint duration
should be fixed for all project teams and should not vary).

The purpose of this activity is to extract all planned workshops during the project/phase into a
schedule that facilitates workshop planning
Purpose of this task is to obtain customer approval (sign-off)
The purpose of this activity is to create project schedule and cost baseline against which tracking,
change management and status reporting is done.

The purpose of the project management plan deliverable is to develop the project management
plan and the subsidiary plans on the basis of the project scope defined in the project charter.

The purpose of this activity is to collect input needed for the project management plan and
document it in a format suitable for both communication purpose as for formal sign-off purpose, if
possible utilizing the accelerator file(s) provided

The purpose of this activity is to achieve a formal sign-off of the project management plan

The purpose of the Project and Operational Standards deliverable is to provide consistent means
of executing and governing project work in an efficient and effective manner. The key objective of
Project Standards is to identify, define, approve, and communicate standards related to project
execution.
Where and when applicable, the current customer processes and procedures, related to the
project standards should be taken into account when defining the most suitable standards for the
project.

The purpose of this task is to define and set up SCRUM standards and tools, such as SCRUM board, burn-down chart, product ba

The purpose of this task is to determine the customers framework to centrally document and relate
business processes and technical information of SAP and non-SAP Solutions in Solution
Manager, ensuring transparency, efficient maintenance and collaboration

The purpose of this task, also known as Innovation Management, is to determine the customers
approach for the identification, adaptation and implementation of new and enhanced business and
technical scenarios. It is part of the application lifecycle and designed to decouple technical
installation from business innovation using SAP Solution Manager to implement the innovation in
the system landscape.

The purpose of this task is to determine the customers template management approach that
allows customers with multi-site SAP installations to efficiently manage their business processes
across geographical distances from initial template definition to template implementation and
template optimization, for example as part of a global rollout

The purpose of this task is to determine the customers approach for managing functional and
performance testing of SAP-centric business processes to ensure validated system behavior after
software change events.

The purpose of this task is to determine the customers approach of handling business and
technology-driven changes, using a standardized process leading to improved reliability of solution
and minimized risk through segregation of duties and transparency of changes.

The purpose of this task is to determine the customers approach of a centralized and common
incident and issue message processing for multiple organization levels. The process offers a
communication channel with all relevant stakeholders of an incident, including business user,
customer-side SAP experts, SAP Service & Support and Partner Support employees.
The Application incident Management is integrated in all ALM processes of SAP Solution
Manager, in any SAP Business Suite solution and can be connected to an Non-SAP Help Desk
application.

The purpose of this task is to determine the customers approach of monitoring, alerting, analyzing
and administrating of SAP solutions. It allows customers to reduce TCO by predefined content and
centralized tools for all aspects of operations in SAP Solution Manager, including End-to-End
reporting functionality either out-of-the-box or individually created by customers

This task uses SAP Business Process Integration & Automation Management (BPIAM) to cover
the most important application related operations topics necessary to ensure the smooth and
reliable flow of the core business processes to meet a company's business requirements.
