Extending the V-Model; The project tick of success

Imagine extending the V model into a tick shape.

Think about the V-model as is: sloping down during the planning and development phase, the right side of the V rising up during the testing nd validation excercises, and then; the organisational and change management leg of the project extending up and beyond the technical work.

The things on the right should, according to the framework, be test an validate activities.

They could be activities such as a business transition agreement, or handover from the project team to operations or the implementation of new performance indicators in the new mode of operations. This acknowledges the steps that help migrate the project's deliverables into the business' future state.

Any thoughts or comments on this extension?

(Project tick of success. I crack myself up.)
