Working Style The first phase of the project is basically a training project for CHR to learn how to configure maintain and use their new BI PM system and how to setup and exploit ongoing value from the rich capability of the Infor PM software .
Baseline Staged Approach The first phase will see a good baseline with all business examples of core functions and some key reports fully working so CHR can then enhance ongoing as it learns more and as the business changes naturally.
In stage 1 data quality management limited to reporting data not fixing it . Project changes limited or delayed until core scope is done Customization limited to already proven and approved items if any Changes to first stage only baseline completed and after proven and approved

frequency, external dimensions, scenario & mission critical mitigation responsiveness
Align Management value chain analysis. This align the business requirements to the overall business
process using activity model methodology. The first step is to confirm the organizations functional component and reporting e.g..
Stream (Each Business Team - sessions) Work with each function on a team by team basis for half a day each identify requirements and the flow of reporting activity plus any dependences for. 1. Sales and Marketing 2. Operations 3. Food and Beverage 4. Finance 5. Information Services

approach recommendations of the project team.
