Unit 7: Assignment
Our book describes the implement phase as “the phase where all the designed and developed
process improvements will actually be ‘brought to life’.” The execution of the implementation can
make or break a project, regardless of its perfection in design. In this Assignment, you will apply
three of the implement phase steps to your project.
For this Assignment, write a 4–6 page paper (double spaced, not including title page or
references) that answers the following questions (use the subheadings/numbered questions
below to organize your paper):
Question 1 – Implementation strategies
Evaluate the suitability of the four implementation strategies discussed in step 2 for your project.
For each strategy explain the specific pros and cons of using it for your project, and then select
the one you think will work the best in your situation.
Question 2 – Test and pilot studies
Based on the discussion in step 5 describe how you would do a test or a pilot study before you
go into full implementation in your project.
Question 3 – Contingency plans
Based on the discussion in step 8 discuss a back-out or a contingency plan that you would
adopt if your implementation does not go as expected.

Grading note: In the grading rubric below, you will see a section on analysis and critical
thinking. The points in this section will partly be based on your ability to apply the concepts
discussed in your assignment to the specific circumstances and details of the
process/organization you selected. Writing in general terms without applying the concepts and
analyzing your specific project may get you points in the content section, but you will lose points
in the analysis section.
