La Sierra University Enactus
Project Development Process
Phase 1: Ideation and Proposal
Before the La Sierra University Enactus Team considers a project for full-implementation, an exploration of feasibility and viability as well as official project initiation documents are required.
The project justification document will be reviewed by the relevant category manager(s) or equivalent, Sam Walton Fellow(s), and a category mentor for guidance on the development of more detailed project initiation documents.
Proposal for Project Development
Upon its completion, a proposal will be reviewed to determine if Enactus resources will be tasked to support further planning and development of the project in preparation for its potential implementation.
Project Selection / Approval for Project Initiation (approval of proposal for further development and use of resources to prepare project/program for full implementation)
Upon approval for development and testing of the proposed project, funds will be allocated to support continued progress. A core project team will need to be established if not previously as well as a project partner/sponsor (as applicable). Results of testing and analysis will be used to improve the existing project proposal to provide the most accurate picture of needed resources and potential impact.
Phase 2: Development and Testing
Phase 2: Implementation
With approval from the second proposed project review, the given project will be officially listed as “in implementation.” Resources will be allocated to the approved budget and monitored through a continuous assessment process of project progress.
Phase 3: Sustainability and Impact
Regular assessment/measurement tools will be utilized to identify areas of improvement, indicate when the given project/program has reached full-sustainability, indicate when implementation needs to be put on hold for further development/testing, or indicate when implementation of the exit strategy is necessary.
