“Launch Definition with MEANS is a process consulting offering of pmNERDS. This offering provides a process umbrella of MEANS, and then line-items of an S.O.W. that can be chosen a la carte.”
We use the acronym MEANS to illustrate and teach launch concepts, and increase the perceived value of project deliverables. We use this acronym because it’s our launch MEANS, that make the difference between success and failure.
Do you have the MEANS to carry a message to 1,000,000 contacts in LinkedIn? Do you have an existing customer base of thousands, or are you stretching to engage 20 users? Launch principles are the same regardless of the size of your expected customers.
During our process consultancy, we address:
Map– Will your daily activities and tasks accomplish your product/services objectives? Business strategies, and organizational goals.
Eliminate– Eliminate unnecessary activities, constraints, and requirements.
Acquire– Balance constraints while acquiring resources and stakeholder support.
Nurture– Focus on feeding the launch vision, build anticipation from before the start.
Secure– Lockdown requirements, control change, build the plan and execute.
The pmNERDS process consultancy provides a standard Launch Definition capability described by the acronym above. This is an umbrella capability needed regardless of any additional practices selected from our a la carte practice menu.
Launch Definition practices available for selection from the a la carte S.O.W. include Derive Launch Plan from Product Requirements, Derive Release Plan from Product Requirements, Product Releases Derived from Internal Sources, Cost-Benefit Analysis, Objective Accomplishment, Readiness, Cohesive Nature, Progressive Elaboration, Alpha-Test, Beta-Release to Focus Group, Market Survey, On-Line Opinion Polls, Test Markets, Probabilistic Modeling, Requirement Tracing, Internal Usage, and Client Endorsement.
Organizations that depend on projects to create value and increase process efficiencies, as seen in business units such as IT, Marketing, and NPD, should talk with us if they’re interested in increasing project performance.
After a quick discussion, we can direct you to the best process offering and a la carte practices based on your process improvement goals.
