Products - The workshop will teach participants the basic skills necessary for completing the tactical modeling effort. During the Tactical Modeling Workshop an initial documented tactical model will be developed for the selected functional area(s). At the conclusion of the Tactical Modeling Workshop, the project plan will be developed in order to conclude the Tactical Modeling Phase of the project.
Participants - Senior functional area management, mid-level managers, and the information systems project team. At least one of the project team members should have participated in the Strategic Modeling Workshop and Strategic Modeling Phase of the project.
Scope - The scope of the Tactical Modeling Workshop will be one or more functional areas of the business, depending on the scope of the project as dictated by the priority business model.
