Capacity planning efforts fail due to the lack of clear goals and responsibilities within IT. Prepare for success by clearly presenting the project plan to the whole IT team, as well as the external stakeholders.
- Record the names and departments of all stakeholders.
- Define and succinctly explain the value of capacity planning to the organization as a whole.
- Provide a full project description including scope, risks, and timeline.
Use the Capacity Planning Project Plan to record the steps taken and manage the communication of project goals to the organization.
