What this is

This document is an example Vision written to define a project to create a Software Release Life Cycle Process (SRLC). It is aimed at project managers and project teams working in an organization that releases large software projects but doesn't have a defined methodology or process for managing these projects. This example can be used as a guideline for planning a project to define and agree upon a release process forever. It should be used in conjunction with the other Software Release Life Cycle documents available on the ProjectConnections.com website.


Why it's useful

If an organization manages complex programs or releases in an ad hoc manner, there's no better time to start defining a practical, useful process than today — to get smoother releases, better quality, and more predictable schedules. Creating a process such as an SRLC should be treated as a project itself — it has concrete deliverables, multiple groups have to buy in to the requirements, the implementation needs to be reviewed, etc.

This SRLC Creation Project Vision document, as all project visions, provides a robust explanation of the project and why it's being undertaken, key aspects of its customer requirements and implementation, and what the end results of the project will be.


How to use it

(Feel free to modify the order of these steps and add/delete):

  • Review this example Vision.
  • Briefly review the other elements of the Software Release Life Cycle documentation on the ProjectConnections.com templates page, to determine whether it could be used for your SRLC development - it includes a full set of defined phases with deliverables, an SRLC overview document, and a team roles document that might be adaptable for your projects, saving your SRLC creation team a lot of detailed work.
  • Charter a team of appropriate stakeholders for the Software Release process improvement/SRLC Creation project.
  • Modify the Vision example to meet your needs. The company environment you work in will influence the type of information needed in a process improvement project. The "Relevant Financial Numbers" is a good example of where the vision needs enhancement to reflect your environment, needs, etc.
