Carry out a staged roll-out

In order to validate the Roll-out model and processes, and to reduce the roll-out risk, it is recommended to carry out a staged roll-out. When possible, you should select a pilot site or department and carry out a preliminary roll-out on a limited scale.

Best practices with regards to the selection criteria of the pilot site or department are:

  • be representative of the rest of the sites or departments

  • be small scale (compared to the size of the final population)

  • bnable easy communication and access by the implementation team.

The reasons behind conducting a pilot roll-out may be:

  • Assessing the feasibility of large-scale implementation under certain conditions

  • Evaluating the impact of a particular roll-out model on project achievement

  • Demonstrating that roll-out can be implemented with existing resources

  • Develop a site that can serve as future model demonstration site

  • Increase stakeholder buy-in

  • Promoting consensus by showing how implementation can work

  • Lowers risk of failure by limiting resource usage

  • Assess true performance in controlled-but-live experiments

  • Quickly deliver a version of the solution to a targeted segment of the client population

  • Confirm or disprove expected results and relationships

  • To test and validate the benefit of the proposed solutions before final roll out

  • Validate the resources needed to effectively scale up roll-out

  • Identify additional improvements in either the solution or implementation launch itself

  • Improve future projections of benefits of full roll-out

  • Assessing the feasibility of large-scale implementation under certain conditions.
