Model Office Proving (MOP) is a working prototype for operations which simulates the to be live environment as closely as is practically possible. MOP allows us to validate the usefulness and effectiveness of the proposed solution. Participating in MOP are key Operations personnel who will ultimately be responsible for using the systems and processes once the execution of the project or program is complete.
MOP involves key personnel involved in the transition at an early stage allowing feedback on the new system and processes as it is developed. It provides an effective way to gather buy-in from all the involved parties, as it allows us to prove the benefits of the new system from their involvement. This approach enables us to record and analyse their feedback as soon as possible, and thus adjust the solution to meet their needs. In addition it can also allow us to anticipate issues and address them before they arise.
