Strategy and Implementation Approach
The strategy focuses on building a custom platform for flexibility while augmenting with external partnerships for acceleration. The implementation will follow an incremental approach utilizing transitional waves to minimize risk and disruption.
The initiative encompasses 6 workstreams: Architecture & Technology, Information Architecture, User Experience Design, Data & Integrations, Development & Testing, and Program Governance. Detailed plans are provided for each area outlining objectives, scope, timelines, risks, and key milestones.

Measuring Success
