DTI031 - Develop the BI Community






02-Feb-2018 Exit Planning

14-Jul-2018   Project Delivery

28-Jul-2018   Project Closure   

Report by Daniel Emerson for August  2018

Awaiting a revision of the project scope from service management. Andrew looking to produce a draft by end of week (07/09/2018) for review. The project was previously considered for withdrawal (at BIT board meeting 23/05) due to difficulty defining and measuring clear deliverables, and the potentially premature implementation at this stage in the overall BI activity. The revised scope will inform whether it makes sense to continue the activity as a re-defined project, or incorporate it into BAU activities.


Achievements this period

  • None


  • See above

Next Steps

  • Review new scope, re-define or withdraw project.



The project is reporting a status of amber, being just over a month past the expected closure date and with uncertainty around the scope going forward.
