Moving onto the beta phase

You should only move onto beta if your team feels assured that your timelines, scope and vision are correct according to the money and people you’ve got for this next phase.

Once you’re confident that you want to move to beta, the team should immediately start working on a business case and funding proposal that the Department Service Owner can submit to their organization’s stakeholders for review and approval.

Starting early on these documents means your team can keep up momentum and gives you time to submit and have reviewed all of the necessary application and service assessment forms.

If you decide to not proceed to the beta phase, it’s not a failure to stop developing a service after the alpha if your findings show that it’s the best thing to do.
