- IT managers don’t know where to start when initiating a mobile program.
- IT has tried mobile development in the past but didn't achieve success.
- IT must initiate a mobile program quickly based on business priorities and needs a roadmap based on best practices.
- Form factors and mobile devices won't drive success – business alignment and user experience will. Don't get caught up with the latest features in mobile devices.
- Software emulation testing is not true testing. Get on the device and run your tests.
- Cross form-factor testing cannot be optimized to run in parallel. Therefore, anticipate longer testing cycles for cross form-factor testing.
Impact and Result
- Prepare your development, testing, and deployment teams for mobile development.
- Get a realistic assessment of ROI for the launch of a mobile program.
1. Make the Case for a Mobile Program
Understand the current mobile ecosystem. Use this toolkit to help you initiate a mobile development program.
2. Assess Your Dev Process for Readiness
Review and evaluate your current application development process.
3. Prepare to Execute Your Mobile Program
Prioritize your mobile program based on your organization’s prioritization profile.
4. Communicate with Stakeholders

This guided implementation is a three call advisory process.
Call #1 - Assess your dev process for readiness
Discuss inefficiencies and gaps in existing app dev processes, how to optimize process and fill these gaps, and interpret and calculate costs and expected benefits.
Call #2 - Prepare to execute your mobile program
Review your organization’s prioritization criteria and apply it to your mobile app dev program. Identify the dependencies among the projects in your program and prepare the necessary updates to technical stakeholders.
Call #3 - Communicate with stakeholders
Review existing app dev documentations and drafts for new documents to ensure completeness, and establish a monitoring plan. Discuss the next steps.
