Welcome to what I call, “Methodology in a Box 3.0”. Version 3.0 is a major revision based around the concept of deploying the new Citrix MetaFrame Access Suite.
Methodology in a Box 3.0 includes detailed analysis, design, implementation, readiness and rollout on the following Access Suite products:
MetaFrame XP Presentation Server with Feature Release 3
MetaFrame Secure Access Manager 2.0
MetaFrame Conferencing Manager 2.0
MetaFrame Password Manager 2.0
This page is rather old and i've created a newer MIAB page and site so please visit it for the latest Methodology in a Box versions. www.dabcc.com/miab.
I have geared this guide toward small size deployments. It is meant to be a starting point to help the technicians and engineers who find themselves working in the trenches with no real structured plan for success. I know that I cannot possibly cover everything, but will try to touch on the points that I feel are the most important and have the biggest impact on the completion of a successful key project. My intention is to pass on the base knowledge that is required while reducing potential risk in return resulting in more successful deployments.
I have also tried to write this document in the same framework that your project will follow and throughout this document, I have presented real world examples from my personal experiences in deploying MetaFrame XP and other software packages. To accomplish this I have created a fictitious consulting firm (D&D Consulting) and a customer called DABCC.COM to add a sense of realism to the examples. I have also documented systematic instructions on everything needed for a successful Citrix MetaFrame Access Suite deployment. My intentions are to make this a blueprint for a successful deployment and from the feedback I’m receiving we are accomplishing just that.
This is also a living document. In this project, you will find a lot of information but it is far from everything one would need and not even meant to be. It is meant to be a starting point, a process change to get you excited about the art of Project Management the way I am. I truly believe it can take you and your organization to the next level. Over the past year I have received a lot of feedback and my favorites are the ones where the consultant has written to me to explain how they where able to take this methodology and mold it in with their own to make something bigger than the sum of its parts. That is the goal of this document.
Finally, I’ve written this document to attempt to give back a little to the community that had taught me so much and been so good to me. When I try to thank everybody who has helped over the years, I'm just told to carry the word to others, the way they did for me. Therefore, to all you who have been a help and given so much to my growth, this document is for the next question boy, coming from them, through me…
Thank you and enjoy,
