As I read some articles concerning the effective implementation of an IS plan. I came up with these things the must be considered:

Project Management

• How aggressive is the implementation plan, both in the timeline and volume of location rollout?
We must determine the strength in terms of time that is necessary for the implementation of the IS plan and even the location variable. Through these information we could come up to reasonable activities and deadlines.
• What level of effort will be needed to keep the plan on time and within budget?
We must also consider the cost that is needed in the implementation of the system. It must be in relation to the overall budget the the IS plan have and the amount that is alloted in the implementation stage. And as said earlier the implementation plan must be within the alloted time.
• Who in the organization can be temporarily reassigned to manage the implementation?
This is in terms of the personnels that are needed in the implementation of the system. Instead of deciding right away in hiring more employees for the activity. We must first check if some of the present persons in the organization is skilled enough and could be reassigned to manage the implementation of the system. This will not only lessen the cost of the activity but will also save the team time and effort in hiring new competent persons for the job.
• What previous experience do they have with IS software implementation or the current MIS of the
organization?
This is also in line with the employees that will be affected with the implementation of the IS plan. Their experiences must be noted for us to know how effective they can be in handling the implementation of the new IS.
• For what length of time will they be needed?
If the organization chooses to reassign employees or to hire contractual personnels for the Implementation of the system, the time that they are in need must be noted. This is important to make sure that their availability in the project is put into good use and to save the organization from wasting money from unneeded personnels.

• How strong are their troubleshooting (problem solving) skills?
Their skills in troubleshooting or problem solving must also ne put into consideration so that they will be assigned to a certain position where their skills will be maximized to the fullest and all the things that must be done will not be interrupted because of an incapable personnel.

Data Conversion

• What data, if any, will need to be transferred to the new system?
This is intended for organizations who have their previous system and want to replace it with a new one. All the data from the past system must be properly transferred to the new one. This requires skilled personnels that knows the previous system and persons that are also trained for the new system.
• What issues are involved with converting the data (i.e., lack of a standard way of calculating interest from one branch office to the next)?
To have the transfer of data precise. Issues involving these data must be put into consideration. This is based on the process that the system requires these data to undergo and this factor is mainly different from one organization to another. Its up to the hired personnels to identify there major involvements.
• What is the volume of data to be converted?
The volume of the data to be converted must also be put into consideration in order express it on an effective timeline.
• Given time, costs and percentage of error, would a manual or automated conversion, or a
combination of both be better?
Depending on the datat that must be converted. The personnel assigned must be reasonable in choosing the type of process in converting the data. The factors that must be considered includes the time and the percentage of error that my occur in the conversion process

Training

• What basic training is necessary for the IT staff, and for the general staff?
After getting note about the abilities and the experiences that the personnels had from the past system the team must know the trainings that the personnels need to be competent in handling the new system.

• Are there any training prerequisites?
One training prerequisite could be that the personnels could only undergo the training if he had attended a certain training in the past, which makes sure that he has the ability to comprehend on the topics that the training will discuss.
• Who conducts the training?
This refers to the competent persons that will conduct the meeting. The success os the training is also dependent on how equipped the trainer is and how good he is.
• Is the training a structured class style format?
It must be sured that the training is structured in order to give the trainees a good view of the topics and would help them fully understand the concepts.
• Does a TOT (trainer of trainers) option exist?
It is also a good point where former trainees could be trainers in the future training activities. It could not only save the organization some money but will also ensure them that the trainer is capable because it is noted that he has undergone the same training before.

Honestly, I am a bit of confused by the question above, whether is refers to me having to "sell" my IS plan for it to be implemented or it is already approved, but "expedite" being defined as "speed up the progress of" I would just assume the latter.

Given the question above, I will now assume that the Proposed IS plan is now approved and now subject to implementation. Therefore, all that is left to think about is how to ensure successful and fast IS plan transition from its paper-plan stage to the implement stage.

Key considerations to do:

Like a Star @ heaven project management:
In this step, it refers to considerations such as where would the project/system suitable to be
implemented or placed in, budget on executing and maintaining it, who are going to manage it and are they suitable to handle implementation of the project?

Such inquiries are supposed to be answered even before it was approved and even before the project completion. The answers are going to make implementation faster since all grounds are seemed to be covered already like personnel to be hired, placement of system/project and its needed support and back-up.

Like a Star @ heaven Data Conversion:

In this step, questions such as is there data needed to be put into practical terms or layman terms than the technical terms the development team used. Data or the information on how to use the project should be stated in a clear and understandable manner, it must be remembered that the user of the system might not understand the professional jargon used.

Like a Star @ heaven Training of personnel:

User of the project are not IT professionals that is why time and training has to done to guide them in how to use and manipulate the project. If the person is knowledgeable or has received appropriate training then implementation if IS plan will be done faster.

PostSubject: steps in IS plan implementation   Fri Feb 06, 2009 3:07 pm

Here are some steps in IS plan implementation

1. Create the mission model

The mission model, generally shorter than 30 pages presents end-result characterizations of the essential raison d=etre of the enterprise.
2. Develop a high-level data model
The high-level data model is an Entity Relationship diagram created to meet the data needs of the mission descriptions. No attributes or keys are created.

3. Create the resource life cycles (RLC) and their nodes

Resources are drawn from both the mission descriptions and the high level data model. Resources and their life cycles are the names, descriptions and life cycles of the critical assets of the enterprise, which, when exercised achieve one or more aspect of the missions.
4. Allocate precedence vectors among RLC nodes

Tied together into a enablement network, the resulting resource life cycle network forms a framework of enterprise=s assets that represent an order and set of inter-resource relationships.
5. Allocate existing information systems and databases to the RLC nodes

The resource life cycle network presents a Alattice-work@onto which the Aas is@ business information systems and databases can be Aattached.
6. Allocate standard work break down structures (WBS) to each RLC node

Detailed planning of the Adifference projects.
7. Load resources into each WBS node
Once the resources are determined, these are loaded into the project management meta entities of the meta data repository, that is, metrics, project, work plan and deliverables.

8. Schedule the RLC nodes through a project management package facilities.

The entire suite of projects is then scheduled on an enterprise-wide basis.
9. Produce and review of the ISP

The scheduled result is predicable: Too long, too costly, and too ambitious.
10. Execute and adjust the ISP through time.

As the ISP is set into execution, technology changes occur that affect resource loadings.

In summary, any technique employed to achieve an ISP must be accomplishable with less than 3% of the IT budget. Additionally, it must be timely, useable, maintainable, able to be iterated into a quality product, and reproducible. IT organizations, once they have completed their initial set of databases and business information systems will find themselves transformed from a project to a release environment.
The continuous flow environment then becomes the only viable alternative for moving the enterprise forward. It is precisely because of the release environment that enterprise-wide information systems plans that can be created, evolved, and maintained are essential.

Basically, we have just did an IS plan in our distinguish company during our MIS 1. And based on our papers for that matters, it requires more consideration to be followed, but more likely there are more factors to be considered. Especially if we are talking about how to expedite this plan to the university.

And listed below are the factors to be considered:

Project Orientation:
It is similar to what Hannah and Jonard have said about project management. But I just use the word "Orientation" in order to emphasize that the plan or the IS plan must be tackled to the group in order for them to understand what is the plan all about. It is not that applicable that only those who did the plan understands what he did. Then it better for the people involve in the plan on what kind of involvement they will have in order for them to participate enthusiastically.

Resources Interpretation:

In creating an IS plan, whether this is for the university or a big organization, the group that designed the plan has its own resources to be interpreted in order for the user or the people involved in the plan knows what are those possible resources or data to know. During our MIS 1, we created a probable usage of hardware and software for the specific company. In that, the company might as well know what they will be needing in year after.

Training of the people involve:
People is the basic equipment of an IS Plan. Since that they're the one's using the systems or they're the one involve in the plan. Since that they are the user or the client of the plan, it must be necessary that they have the knowledge about and how to deal with the change. Since we are talking about a plan, it is guaranteed that the we are dealing with change.

The information systems plan project determines the sequence for implementing specific information systems. The goal of the strategy is to deliver the most valuable business information at the earliest time possible in the most cost-effective manner.

1. Create the mission model.
Missions and mission descriptions are represented through hierarchically composed text. Missions are descriptions of the characteristics of the end result. Missions are noun-based sentences. Mission descriptions are strategic and long range.

2. Develop a high-level data model.
The high-level data model is an Entity Relationship diagram created to meet the data needs of the mission descriptions. No attributes or keys are created. The goal is not to create a low level or fully attributed data model. The reasons that only a high-level data model is needed is straight forward no database projects are being accomplished, hence no detailed data modeling is required and the goal of the ISP is to identify and resource allocate projects including database projects and for that goal, entity identification, naming and brief definitions is all that is required for estimating.

3. Create the resource life cycles (RLC) and their nodes.
A resource life cycle is the linear identification of the major states that must exist within life of the resource. The ultimate goal of resource life cycle analysis is the identification and description of the major resources essential to the enterprise’s survival, and the ultimate goal of the ISP is the identification and accomplishment sequencing of the information systems projects required to implement the enterprise resources in the most effective manner possible.

4. Allocate precedence vectors among RLC nodes.
After the resources and life cycles are complete, precedence vectors are established. Tied together into an enablement network, the resulting resource life cycle network forms a framework of enterprise’s assets that represent an order and set of inter-resource relationships.

5. Allocate existing information systems and databases to the RLC nodes.
a. Allocate Existing (As-is) Databases to Resource Life Cycle Nodes
b. Allocate Existing (As-Is) Information System to Resource Life Cycle Node
c. Allocate Future (To-Be) Databases to Resource Life Cycle Node
d. Allocate Future (To-Be) Information System to Resource Life Cycle Node
e. Configure ISP Projects

6. Allocate standard work break down structures (WBS) to each RLC node.
The key reason for having a well engineered check list for identifying the types of work involved in either a database or business information system project is the ability to then used canned work breakdown structures (WBS). Employing WBS and metrics from a comprehensive methodology supports project management standardization, repeatability, and self-learning.

7. Load resources into each WBS node.
Once the resources are determined, these are loaded into the project management meta entities of the meta data repository, that is, metrics, project, work plan and deliverables.

8. Schedule the RLC nodes through project management package facilities.
The entire suite of projects is then scheduled on an enterprise-wide basis. Using activity network charts (PERT, Microsoft Project).

9. Produce and review of the ISP.
The scheduled result is predicable: Too long, too costly, and too ambitious. At that point, the real work starts: paring down the suite of projects to a realistic set within time and budget. Because of the meta data environment (the integrated project management meta data) and because all projects are configured against fundamental business-rationale based designs, the results of the inevitable trade-offs can be set against business basics. Although the process is painful, the results can be justified and rationalized.

10. Execute and adjust the ISP through time.
As the ISP is set into execution, technology changes occur that affect resource loadings. In this case, only steps 6-9 need to be repeated. As work progresses, the underlying meta data built or used in steps 1-5 will also change. Because a quality ISP is automated the recasting of the ISP should only take a week or less.

If I am to prepare and Information System plan, the steps that I would do in order to speed up the implementation of that plan are the following:

Planning and managing the project


On this step, the project schedule must be well planned and foreseen as well as all the details of the IS plan including all the milestone, activities and duration. Risk must also be predicted for this may cause delaying of the project.

Requirement analysis


The requirements for the system must also be known ahead of time so that when working with the system, everything is ready and the process will continue. This will include the user and human factors, the functionality, the data and resources and the security of the system.

Data conversion


This includes analyzing the data that would be necessary for the system, the volume of the data to be converted and the issues involved in converting the data.

Training


This is for the IT staff that would be involved in creating the system.

PostSubject: Assignment 7   Sat Feb 14, 2009 7:04 am

I would assume that the question refers only to the actual implementation of the IS plan, and therefore it is a given that we already have a background and a plan.

The first step would be to coordinate with the parties involved cheers in the IS implementation, since they will be the ones performing the roles in the IS plan. This also requires orienting the people involved about the different roles that need to be played in the IS plan.

The second step would be to assign responsibilities and set timelines cyclops. This entails the development of efficient working plans that are constituted by the specific steps or action plans to implement the ISP. Setting timelines for taking action in the ISP is very important to ensure that the plan is being carried out efficiently and productively and also to see results within a specified timeframe.

The third step is to allocate resources king for the implementation of the ISP. This is a very critical part in the implementation of the IS plan in the university where the budget for carrying out the ISP will be laid out in detail. A well-made IS plan will go to waste if the necessary resources are not allocated to it. Without resources, it is nearly impossible to expedite the implementation of the ISP. Money is always involved and so even our university cannot escape from this fact. There are other necessary resources to expedite the ISP. Some of these are people, time and physical resources. All these and more need to be properly and adequately allocated to ensure that the plan will not fail.

The fourth step would be to monitor progress Arrow. Milestones should be identified and the parties involved should see to it that the milestones are achieved. Milestones are very efficient measures of progress because it divides the whole project into smaller and more achievable tasks. Every milestone achieved can also motivate the people involved, as they are assured that they are making progress with the implementation of the ISP. Rather than setting a large and distant measure of progress, milestones can be used to keep track of progress in the smaller picture.

The final step now would be to compare the results I love you of the actual implementation of the ISP to the original plan. This would serve as a basis for revising the original action plan. Since it can't be helped that the actual implementation of the ISP in the university would not follow the written plan exactly, it is necessary to compare how the plan is doing when it is carried out to how the plan is doing based on projections in the original plan.

*I based my answers on one of the pdf files given to us by RSG... I found it very helpful and informative...:-)* study

You were invited by the university president to prepare an IS plan for the university, discuss what are the steps in order to expedite the implementation of the IS Plan.

Planning an IS plan can somehow complex. If I were to think of steps in order to expedite the implementation of IS plan to ensure that something takes place or dealt with more quickly than usual I would rather take into consideration some factors.

• Project management

We should determine the time to be allotted in order to complete the plan. With this we can utilize time management and other factors concerning schedules. Other than managing time we should also consider who will manage the plan and create planning teams that is capable in planning an IS. Project management must be properly supervised and development practices are also one most significant factor to be considered. We need to better understand the plan so that implementation won’t become more complicated. That is why such issues must be put into consideration.

• Adaption of resources and information

Issues involving data conversion and allocation of resources must also be considered. Proper usage of resources must also be recognized because it might cause several failures, either when it comes to implementation or allocation of data.

• Training people

Training is also the most important factor to be considered. IT staffs that are properly trained will make the project easily done. They need to have knowledge in terms of managing data and IS plan implementation. One of the things that are essential to successful continuous improvement in order to expedite implementation of IS plan are strongly matters on the people involve around the plan.

PostSubject: Assignment 7   Sun Feb 15, 2009 9:33 pm

One of my classmates above gave me the idea on where to base my answer on what are the steps in order to expedite the implementation of the IS plan since I also have a copy of the PDF file that was given by RSG about Strategic Planning.

Before the implementation of the IS plan takes place, we must already have our plan for the implementation. It is important to plan so that we can prepare and to make it much easier for us to handle the inevitable and unexpected issues that would come up during the process. That is why we are required to plan not only for the implementation of an IS plan but for our future as well.

Given the question, what are the steps in order to expedite the implementation of the IS plan, I would also assume that the question refers to actual implementation of the IS plan since the following steps are to be taken in the implementation of the plan:

The first step is to (1) coordinate with all the persons involved. Persons who will execute the plan need to be informed about the plan and of course on how they are going to execute the plan. The IS team should coordinate with all the persons involved so that whenever there are problems or issues regarding the implementation will be solved immediately and for the implementation not to take long.

The second step is to (2) assign responsibilities and set timelines. Persons involved in the implementation of the plan will be given roles to portray and responsibilities in the form of work plan and staffing plan. Timeline with completion targets will be established for each of the activities involved in the process of implementation. Developing work and staffing plan is important to make sure that there will be an organization of work as well as setting timelines to expedite the implementation.

The third step is to (3) resource the project or initiative and document in the form of detail budgets. Resources not only of money but also of knowledge, of strength, etc. are needed to successfully implement the IS plan. When out of resources, how could the university implement the plan completely and successfully and on time or earlier? Furthermore, it is recommended to make a documentation of the resources including the money spent to recognize how these resources are doing and where they are going. We may not know they are doing not fine and going out of nowhere.

Fourth is to (4) monitor progress to evaluate if the desired outcomes had achieved, to see if still on the trail or if still following the timetable also to find out if there is a progress or not. By checking the details of each of the tasks or summary task we are better informed on the overall progress of the implementation.

Lastly, (5) correct and revise action plans. The original plan should be examined every now and then for detection of errors. Once errors are detected and revisions are made, the actual results of the revised action plans and the original plan should be compared or evaluated to look for the differences again for the errors, and to mull over what are the changes to be done, and what are the things to be added or subtracted.

*Weeh! It would be an honor if I will be invited by the university president to prepare an Is Plan!.. wow Great.. hehehe..*

Seriously, if I am to expedite this given task, the very first things that I have to consider are these five characteristics. :

Timely
If I will prepare the IS plan, can I make it on time? Of course, it is not that easy to plan, so by doing so, I have to finish the plan before it is not needed anymore it would then be useless to still continue the task. As they say “it makes no sense to take longer to plan work than to perform the work planned”.

Useable
Well, I just have to make sure that the ISP that I have to prepare is useable, meaning in every sections or departments, the ISP could be apply, that once implemented the ISP is ready for use.

Maintainable
Any changes, whether environmentally, physically or ideologically could really affect the IS plan, well then I have to make sure that ISP that I will prepare is maintainable, meaning could adapt easily to changes. The ISP must support quick changes to the estimates; technologies employed, and possibly even to the fundamental project sequences.

Quality
While the ISP must be a quality product, no ISP is ever perfect on the first try. As the ISP is executed, the metrics employed to derive the individual project estimates become refined as a consequence of new hardware technologies, code generators, techniques, or faster working staff. As these changes occur, their effects should be installable into the data that supports ISP computation. In short, the ISP is a living document. It should be updated with every technology event, and certainly no less often than quarterly (http://www.tdan.com).

Reproducible
The ISP must be reproducible. That is, when its development activities are performed by any other staff, the ISP produced should essentially be the same. The ISP should not significantly vary by staff assigned.

After assuring that I have accomplished those five characteristics above, then the plan now is ready for deployment or presentation to the concerned parties or the user of the university.

Strategic information systems planning (SISP) is the process of identifying a portfolio of computer-based applications that will assist an organization in executing its business plans and realizing its business goals. SISP is an important activity for information executives and top management. However, too often organizations fail to implement the recommendations from a SISP study. The SISP experiences of 105 experienced planners in this research used perceptual and objective measures to identify planning practices that predict the implementation of such plans.

The first step is to create the mission model. The mission model, generally shorter than 30 pages presents end-result characterizations of the essential raison d=etre of the enterprise. Next is to develop a high level data model. The high-level data model is an Entity Relationship diagram created to meet the data needs of the mission descriptions. No attributes or keys are created. After that, create the resource life cycles (RLC) and their nodes. Resources are drawn from both the mission descriptions and the high level data model. Then allocate precedence vectors among RLC nodes. Tied together into a enablement network, the resulting resource life cycle network forms a framework of enterprise=s assets that represent an order and set of inter-resource relationships.
The fifth was to allocate existing information systems and databases to the RLC nodes.

After that, allocate standard work break down structures (WBS) to each RLC node. Then load resources into each WBS node. Once the resources are determined, these are loaded into the project management meta entities of the meta data repository, that is, metrics, project, work plan and deliverables. Schedule the RLC nodes through a project management package facilities. The entire suite of projects is then scheduled on an enterprise-wide basis. Produce and review of the ISP. The scheduled result is predicable: Too long, too costly, and too ambitious.

Execute and adjust the ISP through time. As the ISP is set into execution, technology changes occur that affect resource loadings.

Here are the steps in implementing an Information System Plan

Project Management

-In this part of the implementation is more on the taking care of the new information system. It will be discuss here who will manage the new information system and what are the things he/she must do to manage the system properly. It also included here how they trouble shoot the system if there is a problem will occur. In a simple way, this part is how they will handle the new information system and how will move one from the older one to the new information system they have.


Data Conversation

-When implementing the new information system it is a must that you will consider what are the data will be transfer from the old system. They must specify what are needed information must be move to the new system. Here are some questions must be answer in data conversation:
• What issues are involved with converting the data (i.e., lack of a standard way of calculating interest from one branch office to the next)?

• What is the volume of data to be converted?

• Given time, costs and percentage of error, would a manual or automated conversion, or a combination of both be better?


Training

- There must be a necessary training for the IT staff and the general staff to run the information system in a smooth way. Since it is new system, a new way of operating the system and it must be study well the function of the system.

Expedite is to accelerate or speed up something. Having constructed an IS Plan should entail the details on how it is to be implemented in effective and efficient ways. Steps of which involves:

 Coordination with the personnel involve
- The workforces/peopleware itself are the main element in carrying out the IS plan. They are the brain and core of the system. Without which, the plan would not be put into action. This entails people management with their particular function and responsibility.

 Assigning of responsibilities and setting timelines
- Distribution and allocating of task should be thoroughly thought out. Constructing a timetable or outline of what-must-be-done is very crucial for it will be the basis for monitoring means of how the plan is going.

 Utilization of resources
- It is of practical act to properly make use of all the resources available for the system. Analysis of the resources should be made. A university should look out for any source accessible. Overlooked resource could be a big lost for one’s organization.

 Monitoring of the growth of development
- To keep track with the project schedules must be observed. Any progress should be made recognize. Updates and improvements must also be identified and evaluated if it has been going well with what has been planned for the system.

 Assessments and revisions of plans
- It is an evaluation and comparison of the actual system implementation with the original ISP. Changes would not be inevitable and so as with what has been intended or planned for the ISP. In this phase, with what is good for the betterment, alteration or modification of the original plan is being done.

These are some guidelines based on some article (PDF from Sir RSG). These are subject to any changes depending upon one’s point of view of what is better. Supplementary information with regard to the matter is open and welcome.

I think i could treat this like having to present my research proposal, Here are the steps i would use if i were to design an IS Plan for the University

1. Present a background study of the current status of the Universities IS - Here i would present information about the university's current strengths and weaknesses with regards to its ICT, Finance, Management, current systems, Human Resource and other units of the organization that would affect the proposed ISP, Enough to show a perspective view as to where my proposed IS plan would dwell.

2. state the mission/goal of the new IS plan - The mission Goal of the IS plan should be inclined with the University's original statement,

3. Identify the Objectives of the IS plan

4. Identify ISP models that would serve as the platform for the proposed ISP - Exixting ISP models from outside sources are good starting point to boost the development of the proposed IS plan.

5. Identify components of the proposed IS plan

6. design implementation goals

If I were invited by the University president to prepare an IS plan for the university, I would like to use this chance to solve many problems in the university by implementing an IS plan that would improve and develop the university into what it is aiming for.

For starters, developing an IS plan for the university would prove a great challenge. I would focus mostly in dealing with the problems found inside the university rather than aiming for something great outside. As gathering data is part of the development of IS plan, I would make sure that those data would include the problems found inside the university and its opportunities. I would like to develop an IS plan that would address those problems and solve it through its implementation while utilizing the full potential of the university in delivering its services. As our university is a state university, many opportunities may rise and utilizing this and using it up to the maximum benefit would greatly improve the university.

In expediting the implementation process of the IS plan, the first and foremost concern for this process is the willingness of the university for implementation. A huge resistance for the implementation of an IS plan would prove a huge risk and may cause the IS plan to fail or never implemented. It would greatly help if the IS plan is backed and supported by the top university officials so that other parts of the university or colleges would have minimal amount of resistance. The IS plan with the acknowledgment from the university would be implemented faster if the university itself knows of the IS plan so training and seminars are thereby held. The whole process of implementation would require much time and resources that focusing all efforts will be required for the implementation to go smoothly and immediately.

You were invited by the university president to prepare an IS plan for the university, discuss what are the steps in order to expedite the implementation of the IS Plan.


First I will discuss TIME- when is the best time to implement the IS plan? this involves the process which states the state of the university. Involves the question "Is the university already ready for the implementation?"

Next will be beneficiaries who will benefit the IS plan and how will it affect to the people involve.

budget - budget for the implementation of the IS plan. Involves the willingness of the university to allot budget for the implementation and maintenance.

You were invited by the university president to prepare an IS plan for the university, discuss what are the steps in order to expedite the implementation of the IS Plan.

It’s an honor for me to invited by the university president to prepare an IS plan for the university. In creating an Information system plan development here are some steps:
• Create the mission model
• Develop a high-level data model
• Create the resource life cycles (RLC) and their nodes
• Allocate precedence vectors among RLC nodes
• Allocate existing information systems and its databases to the RLC nodes
• Allocate standard work break down structures (WBS) to each PLC nodes
• Load resources into each WBS node
• Schedule the RLC nodes through a project management package facilities
• Produce and review of the ISP
• Execute and adjust the ISP through time

Here are some of steps in order to speed up the implementation of IS plan.

• Cost/ people – in creating IS plan I must first discuss who are the primary workers of the plan and how much will its spend
• Time – I will discuss how long will it take to create an IS plan. And how long will it take to implement it
• Objectives – the primary goal and objective of the IS plan.
• Advantages/ disadvantages – in whom the IS plan benefit most and what are the primary advantage and disadvantages after implementing the IS plan
