1. What exactly IS the Framework?
The IT Guidance Framework© is a codified methodology that provides best practice guidance on how to evaluate, select, and implement a new AMS, LMS, or Website. The Framework includes 100+ templates and documents uniquely designed for use by associations. The Framework guides the entire project, ensuring a consistent, professional methodology for all project activities. Designed for both small and large associations, the Framework proactively identifies project risks and associated mitigation strategies at the onset of the project, thereby reducing the chances of project problems and failure. Project strategies and tactics are defined during all project phases to help ensure that important tasks do not “fall through the cracks.” From the project onset, all business stakeholders will understand their roles and responsibilities as a result of the formal definition and communication tasks outlined in the Framework.
