Process Entry/Exit Criteria
|Entry Criteria||Exit Criteria|
- After contract sign off, DevMgr forms a core team for the project that consists of a DevTL, QATL, CC and a PM (if not assigned earlier).
- DevMgr sends a Kickoff an email to the core team and other relevant stakeholders for the formal commencement of the project using the Timesheet System. Relevant stakeholders include:
- Internal Contact Person
- Process Engineering Manager
- Customer Contact Person
Guidelines for Project Kickoff
- At least core team is required at this stage to carry out project planning, and analysis & design activities. Other team members may also be assigned at this level depending upon the nature of the project.
For ongoing projects of a particular customer, if a project team is dedicatedly assigned on a project, kickoff email/meeting for next projects/releases can also be initiated by PM instead of DevMgr.
