We are making good progress this week. We are on track to resolve all remaining issues,for this phase, by the end of August. Also, we reached agreements with OMBU on the revised execution plan for next phase, CRM and IT Tool.

WW33 Progress Report:

  • We have received and resolved all comments on Workflow from all stakeholders.
  • Had multiple sessions with OMBU and addressed most remaining comments/issues, including non-hierachical place, routes as  activities, group roles, historical waiver records, grades for different seasons, group hierarchical permissions, etc.)
  • Both Workflow and Data Model will be published for public access next week.
    Our next phase is CRM & IT Tool development. We need to migrate historical data into Salesforce Database based on the data objects.
  • We will work with OMBU to come up with a template to define common formats for data migration.

I am back from vacation and will continue to publish the project progress this week.

While making progress on finalizing the design documents, we also encountered some OMBU resource and communication challenges that limited our progress. After a quick meeting, Sarah and OMBU’s CEO agreed on ways to address these issues. Stay tuned for more details later.

WW33 Progress Report:

  • OMBU completed all high level software design documents for final reviews.
  • We collected and resolved all review comments from stakeholders on both workflow and roles/permission documents. This implies both Workflow and Roles/Permission documents are complete and locked.
  • Resolved a critical usability issue with OMBU by deferring the Sitemap effort until the web UI design is complete. This will allow us to freely redesign the new website without being limited by the Sitemap .
  • Stakeholders are reviewing the Data Model and Feature & Requirements to make sure critical data and functions are supported.
  • Sarah and OMBU CEO reached agreements on how to address current OMBU resource and communication challenges in order to keep the IT project on track again. OMBU is now taking actions to address these issues, including adding more resources to this project.
