Running a pilot test of the new intranet – testing it with a broader range of real users — is optional but very useful. If project timelines are tight, you can skip the pilot test and just communicate with all staff about “the iterative approach we are taking.” However, if you do have time piloting has immense value; embrace it wholeheartedly.
Format: MS Word
Purpose: to clearly and concisely state why we are pilot testing, how it will run, and who is involved.
Audience: Project Sponsor, Project Manager, Pilot Team
