System Development Life Cycle: Phases IV & V – Implementation and Maintenance



With the justification of an HRIS solidified, you need to show  your client how you will implement the HRIS using one of the change  models discussed in our text. You will also need to explain and justify  cost associated with implementation via a cost benefit analysis. You  want to ensure the system is properly maintained and evaluated for  continuous improvement. Therefore, you will include a maintenance and  evaluation plan in your proposal. 


Write a 3–4 page proposal, in which you do the following: 

Change Management
  1. Discuss the various reasons system implementation fails.  Compare and contrast various change models. Then select a change model  to use during system implementation. Provide details of how you will use  the change model, and justify why you selected one model over the other  models. Explain the various steps that should be included to ensure the  change model is effective. 
HRIS Implementation
  1. Discuss the activities that are necessary prior to the system  going live, and provide a timeline for these activities. Specify which  change management team member will be responsible for each activity, and  explain their role.    
Cost Benefit Analysis
  1. Create a cost benefit analysis matrix for the HRIS vendor you  chose during Phase III: Design. Analyze the cost justification  strategies that you will use to justify the cost of the HRIS, including  data that identify each benefit and cost component examined, estimates  of the dollar amount for each, estimates on when the organization will  incur each cost and receive each benefit, and documentation justifying  each decision you made in listing these benefits. 
  1. Discuss how you will ensure the system is properly maintained and evaluated for continuous improvement.   
  1. Use at least three quality academic resources in this  assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar websites do not qualify as  academic resources. 

This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards. For  assistance and information, please refer to the Strayer Writing  Standards link in the left-hand menu of your course.

The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:

  • Create an HRIS implementation and maintenance plan that  includes a timeline of activities, responsibilities, and a cost-benefit  analysis.
