The FISDev Activity Model
The Overall Implementation Guide provides the governing set of Phases, Activities, and Tasks for the sustainability framework
- Phases - The major lifecycles of a program. The Sustainability Goverance Framework has 5 phases as part of its continuous implementation approach.
- Activities - Describe major units of work through a focus on key concepts and deliverables.
- Tasks - Describe the detailed set of steps within an Activity that are required to produce the overall set of deliverables.
For each Phase, Activity and Task, the following are defined:
- Objective - an overview of the particular step
- Input - dependencies to initiating the particular step in the process
- Deliverables/Output - describe what is completed out of this step in the process
At the Activity level, the following are also defined:
- Core Supporting Assets - reference to Supporting Assets (including Solutions). Only Public Supporting Assets are listed within the Overall Implementation Guide. A number of other Supporting Assets are linked into the methodology through either internal knowledge management systems (internal version) or through categories in the open methodology.
- Yellow Flags - issues to watch out for that typically cause problems
- Key Resources - typical types of resources that are needed to perform an activity. This is a very high-level model; estimating tools should be used for more accurately assessing this area.
Each of these areas will are built over time to supplement the core methodology. Contributors to FISDEV can recommend extensions and new Core Supporting Assets to the Overall Implementation Guide.
