Creating and Implementing D^5: Deploy
I think it’s important to point out at this stage that we used the D^5 process to create… the D^5 process. We used D^5 to sequence and organize this series of blog posts (look at the titles and order).
The most important and most difficult part of deploying D^5 wasn’t working with the design team to create the “Welcome Kits” for our clients, or implementing the new documents and processes; but forcing ourselves to use D^5. Old habits are tough to break and learning a new one is more so.
Our focus has been on not only seeking out the bugs that go along with any launch—and fixing them—but forcing ourselves to use D^5. It’s a challenge that will continue in the coming months, but eventually subside.
Change however—iterations to D^5—will continue much longer.
About Joshua Bennett
Joshua is our Project Manager who graduated from the University of Missouri, Columbia and then earned his Certified Associate of Project Management (CAPM) from PMI. The years since he finished school have brought him farther and farther west, further developing his skills as a Project Manager along the way. When not organizing, planning, or relentlessly following-up, he enjoys reading, writing, happy hour; or, the more active pursuits of tromping and riding around the Cascades, dreaming of summer where his free time is spent sailing.
