Stage 1: Aims and Objectives
Through Stage 1 a fuller understanding will be apparent as to the timescales and milestones for the pilot. These need to be reflected within the overall pilot programme.
Stakeholder identification and liaison are key elements of this stage and the specific requirements should be outlined here.
Options for procurement of the innovation to be piloted should be considered though this stage.
The development of the risk management plan and associated risk register is a key element in this Stage 1. This must be produced at an early stage with the associated contingency built into the budgetary estimates.
