Stage 3: Implementation

Strategic Actions associated with this stage. During this step data collection would commence to enable a ‘before’ scenario to be quantified and subsequently assessed. During this step the innovation and the associated assessment systems and services as specified through Stage 2 will be procured. Through this step the innovation and the associated assessment systems and services as specified through Stage 2 will be developed. During this step the innovation and the associated assessment systems and services as specified through Stage 2 will be implemented and installed at the pilot location. During this step the innovation and the associated assessment systems and services will be validated against the requirements specified through Stage 2. Throughout Stage 3, consideration must be given to the overall continuation of the pilot. In particular the business case must be reviewed during the procurement step when a firm indication of the pilot costs will be apparent. Similarly during the validation step when checks will be made to ensure that all the necessary requirements of the innovation are provided. Typical outputs that might be expected from this stage.
