Stage 5: Completion and Dissemination

Strategic Actions associated with this stage. It is essential that the completion point in time of a pilot is clearly identifiable. This step will also ensure that should the innovation remain in place beyond the pilot end point that any relevant handover information is provided to the parties responsible for the ongoing maintenance and support for the pilot term. Following its completion the lessons learnt at each and every previous stage will be collated and assessed. From the lessons learnt it is essential that these are disseminated to other interested parties. Typical outputs that might be expected from this stage.

Strategic Actions

The archiving of appropriate pilot information and data is an important aspect of this stage ensuring that all the relevant material can be retrieved should it be required.

It may be necessary to develop and provide training material associated with the handover. This training must include for all aspects of the systems and service assuming that no continuity of expertise will be available.

Both internal and external stakeholders will be interested in the impact of their contribution to and the overall outcome of the pilot. Depending upon the scale and impact of the pilot this may be achieved by sharing the information through articles in Network, a newsletter, seminars or a meeting/conference.

An assessment of the effectiveness and the breadth of aspect considered in the risk register will provide valuable lesion for future pilots.
