We want your next AVL project to be a success so we worked to compile the top 10 things you should know before starting your next AVL Project (big or small).
1.Clearly define what the system is to do now, six months from now, and two to three years later.
2. What are you trying to accomplish by completing the project? Are you trying to just replace failing equipment with the same capability or improve the system for greater capacity and flexibility?
3. What is the value to the organization? More important than a budget is what is the value of the system to the organization. A well-designed system can save money or open opportunities for an organization.
4. Who are the stakeholders? It is important to identify who the key people are in the organization.
5. Who is the contact or team at the organization to make the decision?
6. What is the training plan? After the system is installed how is training going to take place? In some instances, training can be done before the system is installed so you can hit the ground running.
7. If an upgrade, what is the plan for old equipment? Is is good to evaluate if any equipment can it be reused, repurposed, or sold. This can be a good way to justify the cost of new equipment if the old equipment can be repurposed to other areas of the organization.
8. What are the key issues that need to be addressed?
9. What is our timeline? When does this project need to be completed by?
10. Who makes up your design and consulting team? What are their backgrounds? i.e. Architect, Church Builder, Creative Consultant, Worship Leader, Technical Director, etc.
If you have any questions about these or would love to ask questions, we would love to hear from you!
