The Implementation Stage The purpose of this essay is to discuss about the implementation of the project. It is important to know and understand the six stages of implementation. In this situation you can see that the human resource system needs to be updated and that is where the implementation process goes in to play. Each of the stage’s activities would be used for its’ specifically planned for each situation. Then go into details about the benefits of using the defined and repeatable process for accomplishing the activities in the implementation stages. The six stages of implementation consists of; coding, testing, installation, documentation, training, and support.
Coding
The first activity in the implementation stage would be coding. This is also the stage where everything is evaluated. In this stage, one of the main portions is to find what the needs of the company are. Management would be able to point out what needs to be worked on. For example, they would point out that the login screen of the main page always gets a glitch and would lead you to another page that was not relevant to what you have clicked or picked.
Testing
The testing stage would be next after coding. During this stage, the components will be thoroughly tested before implementation. This stage is an important part of the implementation phase because testing is mandatory for almost everything that is doing through developmental changes. Without the testing stage we would not know where to begin fixing the problems because the testing stage would help locate any parts of the system that may need to be improved for changed. This testing stage will help save money in the long run. According to "Implementation Coding And Installation Of The Riordan Hr System" (2014),” In the case of fictional Riordan, come up with your own examples. Thinking about potential problems before they…...

...IT Project Implementation Failures Within this document you will find the answers to your questions. Such as how the implementation process works and why some IT projects tend to fail. The implementation process will be explained in detail so that the roles and responsibilities are understood. There will also be a brief overview of how an organization can minimize the occurrences and effects of it failures. IT Implementation The implementation process begins after the system has been assigned and everyone has access to it. This process is a huge priority for our team and especially valued by the senior executives. When our organization implements a new health care information system we make sure that plenty of time and resources are set aside to give it as much attention as needed to complete the process. The first few steps of the process are crucial, organizing the implementation team and identify a system champion, determine the projects scope and expectations and establish and institute a project plan. In these first few steps there can be major failure, leading to costly overruns, unsatisfied users, delays and more. Fundamentals Missed In the case study “Memorial Health System CPOE Implementation” there was several fundamental activities that were not completed. When planning out the process Fred Dryer and Joe Roberts did not evaluate the time money or even staff that would be needed to complete the implementation process.

8 Stages

...THE EIGHT STAGES OF CHANGE AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR AND MANAGERIAL CONCEPTS BY JEROME MITCHELL DR. TYRON WOODARD JULY 22, 2012 Change is defined as the act or process of altering or modifying. Change is very prevalent and viewed differently in the business world. It is a something that takes place daily within any given organization. It does not matter what the situation the business is dealing with, that being growth, startup, downsizing, recession, or leadership change, a business or entity will experience the concept of change. Several companies have problems with the agents of change; John P. Kotter has developed a process of eight stages that initiate change in order to guide organizations through the change process. I will attempt to discuss the stages and show a correlation to topics discussed in organizational behavior and whether or not the topics support or contradict the processes. Stage 1 is Increase Urgency. Every organization has experienced some level of success, but with each success earned, there has also been failure. When formulating a company’s own process for success, becoming stagnant in an ever-changing climate becomes an issue. There's no pressing factor or pressures to get employees or their leaders excited about upcoming changes. Kotter proposed that in order to start implementing change, there must be a sense of urgency available. Establishing a sense of urgency is crucial...

A Computer Implementation of Estimated Variances in Multi-Stage Cluster Sampling Schemes

...A COMPUTER IMPLEMENTATION OF ESTIMATED VARIANCES IN MULTI-STAGE CLUSTER SAMPLING SCHEMES L. A. Nafiu, L. Idris, A. F. Busari and A. B. Olaniyan Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State (lanconserv@yahoo.com) ABSTRACT The computation of sample variances arising from multi-stage cluster sampling schemes or designs are complex and time-consuming. This paper presents a computer software written with Java programing language for implementing some of the available formulars for estimated variances in multi-stage techniques. The software has the advantages of accessibility, cheapness, and ease of use in computing estimated variances in both one-stage, two-stage and three-stage sampling schemes. A data set for estimating number of diabetic patients in Niger state for 2005 was used for illustration. We recommend that computation involving these estimated variances be done with the aid of this software. Keywords: Software, Computation, Multi-stage, Estimated Variances, Time, Data and Diabetic Patients. Introduction Multistage sampling is where the researcher divides the population into clusters, samples the clusters, and then resample, repeating the process until the ultimate sampling units are selected at the last of the hierarchical levels (Okafor, 2002). For instance, at the top level, states may be sampled (with sampling proportionate to state population size); then cities may be sampled; then schools; then classes;......

...The Nature of Strategy Implementation Successful strategy formulation does not guarantee successful startegy implementation. It is always more difficult to do something (strategy implementation) than to say you are going to do it (strategy formulation). Although inextricably linked, startegy implementation is fundamentally different from strategy fromulation. Strategy formulation and implementation can be contrasted in the following ways: * Strategy formulation is positioning forces before the action. * Strategy implementation is managing forces during the action. * Strategy formulation focuses on effectiveness. * Strategy implementation focuses in efficiency. * Strategy formulation is primarily an intellectual process. * Strategy implementation is primarily an operational process. * Strategy formulation requires good intuitive and analytical skills. * Strategy implementation requires special motivation and leadeship skills. * Strategy formulation requires coordination among a few individuals. * Strategy implementation requires coordination among many individuals. Management perspectives Implementation problems can arise because of the shift in responsibility, especially if SF decisions come as a surprise to middle- and lower-level managers. Therefore, it is essential to involve divisional and functional managers in strategy-formulation activities. Management Issues Central to Strategy Implementation * Establish annual......

Legislative and Implementation

...Kiley Overholt HCS/455 June 24, 2013 Elaine Bobo Legislative and Implementation In health care there are five stages involved when policies are introduced into the health care system. Policies are at a constant pace of being reviewed to better the health care system, with each one having an effect on the changes in health care. Since each stage takes special consideration before policies are proposed and accepted, in this paper we will talk about two, the Legislative and Implementation stages. Legislative The Legislative phase is similar to the steps of passing a bill; with the exception that it is only for the health care aspect. It all begins with an idea in which evolves into something more, where steps are to be taken in order to get the policy into action. Congress is involved in this phase to help legislative officers in making executive decisions by offering guidance on actions. The Office of Legislative Policy and Analysis (OLPA) “helps by providing information and advice on Congressional actions that affect those involved” (Office of Legislative Policy and Analysis (ofm)-Other Related Resources”,). The functions that are involved to help support during the process is: • “To serve as the principle legislative with the congress, and other Federal agencies • Prepare if there is need to testify • Analyzes pending legislation • Monitor and keep those involved informed • Brief members of Congress and......

...to EHR adoption are utilized for health information exchange adoption. Some providers will build their own health information exchange to tailor the system to their needs, control the data themselves, and set their own privacy and security. Others will join existing health information exchange systems which typically cost less and offers more exchange partners. Lastly, some states are integrating systems statewide to exchange information. Federal grants are used to assist in building these systems and benefits include wider range of communication, access to directories within the state, and cheaper exchange options. The features associated with health information exchange systems are beneficial to supporting the key requirements for Stage two of meaningful use (National Rural Health Resource Center, n.d.). In regards to quality of patient care, most research focuses on three dimensions: patient safety, effectiveness, and efficiency. Many clinicians fail to adhere to best practice guidelines which in turn diminish a patient’s quality of care. EHR’s goal is to overcome non-adherence issues including clinicians not knowing protocols, not knowing what guidelines apply to specific patients, and lack of time during a patient visit. Recent research has determined computerized physician reminders for hospital patient vaccinations have increased from 0% to 35% and 50%, respectively. Likewise, in outpatient settings, influenza vaccinations increased from 47% to 65% of......

...development life cycle (SDLC) It is a process to develop the software systematically. SDLC is also known as software life cycle and software process. SDLC have the following stages: 1. Initial Stage: Proposal for the application/Product or adding the new functionality from the customer. 2. Requirements Gathering: In this phase, the Business Analyst will gather the information (Requirements) from the customer. The Document Prepared during this phase is: Business Requirement Specification (BRS) or Customer Required Specification (CRS) Or User Requirement Specification (URS). Entry Criteria: BRS OR CRS or URS. 3. Analysis Phase In this stage the project architect team determines the features and the functions that need to be developed in the project. BRS (Business Requirement Document) Exit Criteria: SRS Tester: Analyze the requirements.- also called static testing 4. Design Phase The actually flow of the project is designed here.

...said they have encountered problems with referrals to specialists. After analyzing the article, I believe that the hypothesis is HMO’s need to educate not only their members but also the physicians that they contract with, to help members who are not aware of the steps that need to be taken in order to see a specialist for non-emergency appointments. Also, I believe that the process they are using, which is a four step process is a very good way to understand and improve the knowledge of the HMO product. Phase one was the research phase that conducted surveys and focus groups. Phase two will attempt to identify possible solutions that were found in phase one. Phase three involves implementation of the solutions proposed in stage two. Phase four will measure and evaluate how the implementation has been received. The second article I chose is named “CDC Supports HMO Research.” The federal government is supporting research by MCO’s (Managed Care Organizations) on health delivery strategies (Dependent Variables), that analyze topics(Independent Variables) which include childhood immunization, pediatric nutrition, tuberculosis surveillance systems, mammography screening patterns, clinical preventive services, vaccination, promotion of breastfeeding, and diabetes management. It is my hypothesis that this study can reduce health care costs which will lower the cost of HMO’s. The members of the HMO Research Network are conducting about 1500 research projects on a range of......

...Name Instructor Class Date Implementation Rehearsal must be considered in plan implementation because you have to make sure you practice your plan to see if it is planned out enough and to see if it will work. You should always rehearse a plan before making it official so you can weed out any mistakes or bad ideas. Maintenance must be considered in plan implementation because if you have any errors, you need a way to fix them quickly. Just like buying a used car, you need maintenance every once in a while to fix things that aren’t working right. Benchmarking must be considered in plan implementation because you should always evaluate your plan for mistakes and make sure it is as good as other plans. It’s all about competition in this world, and if your plan isn’t as good as others, you will have some problems in your business. If your plan doesn’t pass the test, it will not work and needs to be fixed. Assurance and Audit must be considered in plan implementation because it helps to assure that your plan can be fixed and molded into the best plan it can be. All of the errors are removed to perfect the plan with assurance audit. Not only is it a good idea to make sure others within the company inspect your plan for a second opinion, but it is also a good idea that you also inspect your plan personally also. You are the one that created it and you are the one that knows what’s best for it and what needs to stay and what needs to go. Reference Reference: ......

...Change Management: Best Practice Strategies for ERP Implementation By: Andrew Handoko 1601226176 LC11-LEC BINUS UNIVERSITY 2015 ABSTRACT The implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, have become more complex and crucial in information systems infrastructure within large organizations. However, most of these large companies deal with common people issues. Their potential users across different departments of organization resist the implementation process for some reasons. Enterprise units are being lack of communication from top management to functional units within implementation project. As a result, companies are struggle for ERP systems practice as well as to get rid of worker’s social problem and infrastructure’s transitions from old system to a new system. Ultimately, a successful ERP implementation projects are less about technology and more focus on people and process. Change Management is the best practice for “critical success factor” in ERP implementation literature. The purpose of this research is to have a better understanding about how change management is essential to be a part of ERP implementation process. This paper describes the main success factor of Change Management in order to create a successful ERP implementation and how should organizational change be managed.

...Individual Assignment Technology Implementation Gustavo A. Matus Tec 401 July 11, 2012 Instructor: Summiya Mahdi, MBA/TM University of Phoenix Today’s economy has a very large impact on how and when companies or organizations implement new technologies, the order of the day is how to reduce cost by al means necessary and that perspective in most of the times involved personnel reduction. This approach and bad business practice has been applied for many years; but now a day with the technological advancements it is possible to modify that approach by maximizing capacity and efficiency and staying on top with state of the art technology that will boost the vision and mission of any particular company.  According to Reagan, E. A., & O'Connor, B. N. (2002), “the premise here is that IT has the potential to increase performance in more ways than simply enabling work to be done faster and/or more easily”. “IT can support better communications, more informed decisions, and worker creativity”. (p.296)  Now a day not only we are able to be more effective and efficient with new technology but we also have the ability to be mobile, with the use of new technology, employees have the option to work from home or also keep working on a project. The world of high-tech communication also has provide us with a great tool which are our smart phones, the communication process becomes uninterrupted and the distance barriers are not longer in place because on the digital......
