Hi everyone,

What is the role of Sure Step Methodology  in a  succesful project implememntation.

what are the various uses and practices in Sure Step Methodology.is it a complicated process to follow?

Can anybody throw any additional light on its usage please.

  • It is Microsofts framework tool for successfully implementing the Dynamics products. It provides a proven track record of steps for you to follow and overlay on your project. If you are not using it what methodology are you using to implement? All SureStep details are available on partnersource I believe.

    Thanks Adam,

    Infact We are using Sure step methodology for implementing our projects ,i was curious to learn it so i started enquiring about it.Is it possible for you to give me a breif idea about it.I do have all the learning guides available on partnersource still i would like to get a practical view on its usage i.e.various windows,stages,phases...step by step process.

    Can anybody share their views on this.

    Cheers

    Sorry I am confused, you use it, you have all the learning materials, you are starting to enquire, but you want a practical view on its usage? Can you not answer that yourself as you use it?

    Sorry Adam i will clear you on that

    We use it in the sense as a company ,my company uses it and as part of the team i am not yet exposed to the Sure step methodology which is delt ny other senior members of the team.So now i have access to all guides for this as said earlier again but again studying from books may give you limited exposure when compared to gaining info from somebody who has hands on experience ( in my situation i can not learn from my seniors for various reasons)

    Thanks again

    Sure Step is black and white, in the real world companies do not always adopt all of the elements. I would suggest that if your company wants you to understand it then they have to tell you how they use it, which means the senior on hands users tell you how it is used. It would be the best way, otherwise the advice here may contravene your own internal policies for one reason or another.

    However a brief overview could be considered this:
