Build The Plan
Define and de-risk the opportunity.
The Implementation Plan
Let's call a spade a spade - building software products in the energy industry is risky! So many seemingly obvious ideas struggle to get past the Pilot stage due to technical, regulatory, or organizational surprises.
We pride ourselves on getting 100% of our products to launch, and writing Implementation Plans is a key tool to both de-risk the product and keep an eye on the big opportunities in front of us.
The Plan is designed to be shared with all key stakeholders to support and drive strategic decision-making - from senior executives to the day-to-day project managers to IT and optionally even other vendors.
The process laid out below is what we would do if the product was our very own.
Scope & Timeline
Whether evaluating an MVP or a unicorn, drafting a shareable and final Implementation Plan takes 6-8 weeks to complete.
Plans are built by a Bellawatt Senior Product Manager, who has 2+ years of experience building software products for the energy industry. Concepts like kWh vs kW and electric rates won't be new, and they'll just need a single counterpart from the partner company to help identify key stakeholders and coordinate internal feedback.
The entire effort is designed to de-risk future larger investments, whether the implementation work is performed by Bellawatt or another team.
