Through the course of the day, participants will be supported to produce a detailed implementation plan covering every step of the implementation process, and at the end of the workshop will have a clear, detailed action plan to take away that can be used to implement a project within your current register and will provide a template for any other projects using the same technology.

The workshop will include:
