Our delivery playbook is an implementation guide for introducing Concentric into a large organisation (e.g. an NHS Trust or Health Board). It has been developed iteratively by the team based on our existing 20+ deployments in the UK.
The aim of the playbook is to be a one stop shop for project teams to understand the recommended approach and have access to project resources to simplify implementation.
It is useful for project teams to go through the playbook in detail towards the start of the project, and then leverage the resources as required during the phases of implementation.
Delivery phases and activities
This is the main section of the playbook, outlining the overall structure of a deployment and the individual activities.
This is a list of all the resources included within the playbook, for easy access during the project.
