Project Management Flowchart and Summary
Scenario
Intuit, Inc. would like to migrate their existing applications, such as payroll management and customer relationship management (CRM), to cloud-based applications. The CEO believes that cloud-based systems will save the company time, money, and resources in the long run. One challenge is that many legacy systems are not automatically compatible with the new cloud-based systems and need to be manually exported or transferred. Training users is also a challenge since there are various locations across the country. 
At a recent meeting, the development team determined there are 7 phases in this project that need to be completed. As IT project manager, you are tasked with planning out the 7 phases. This includes developing a swimlane flowchart that describes the processes, roles, and responsibilities of various departments and personnel during each phase of the project. 
Phases
· Phase I: Scoping and Planning
· Phase II: Order/Install Equipment
· Phase III: Install/Test Software
· Phase IV: Conduct Hardware/Software Testing
· Phase V: Conduct Training
· Phase VI: Implementation and Roll Out
· Phase VII: Evaluation and Post Implementation
