Banner---Did-you-know-PromoIterative delivery approach

The Victorian Water Register Transform project is a complex initiative that needs to be delivered across a variety stakeholder groups.

This iterative approach is adapted from classic agile ways of working and will help us deliver business benefits earlier, while meeting stakeholder needs for certainty and structure. It also accommodates work streams that are more difficult to manage in a pure agile environment.

Key features:

  • milestone driven with an operational product delivered at the end of each milestone
  • agile development of product against each relevant milestone
  • a mix of all in (big bang) and iterative delivery of products to our stakeholders.

The image shows the work will be done in four stages and five milesones.  Foundation stage Stage one milestone one, migrate current VWR to Azure/D365 Stage one milestone two, transform services cloud structure. Stage two milestone three, transform service enablement Stage two milestone four, VWR applications online (electronic lodgement) Stage three milestone five, transform services deployment

Detailed deliverables across these stages are in development and we will be updating these pages as soon as we have more information to hand.

In the meantime, check out the agile ways of working page for more information on how we’re introducing agile elements across project planning and development.

Our project guidelines

The project takes its overall guidelines from the Victorian Water Register 10-Year Strategy

  • Adaptive management: focussing on continuous improvement through regular monitoring and periodic evaluation, and adjusting our strategic direction or work plan as required
  • Collaboration: building on the strength of existing partnerships, continue working together to deliver our shared outcomes for the Victorian Water Register
  • Customer and community focus: ensuring the Victorian Water Register meets the needs and expectations of those who use and rely on it
  • Communication: keeping our partners and beneficiaries informed about the outcomes we are seeking for the Victorian Water Register, the changes we are making to get there and progress towards achieving our outcomes
  • Capability-building and support: ensuring our partners and beneficiaries feel confident interacting with the Victorian Water Register, and providing consistent, complete and accurate data and information where required
  • Adapting to future change: maintaining flexibility to adapt to changes in the external environment, including new technology, the water entitlement framework, water markets, and Victorian and Commonwealth legislation
  • Flexibility: recognising and accommodating the different needs of different Victorian Water Register partners
  • Trust: giving confidence in the security and privacy of the Victorian Water Register, particularly as services move online
