Preparing for a planning meeting

Prepare for the planning meeting so that Firefly can be rolled out to the school as effectively as possible.

The planning meeting covers:

  • choosing a theme and deciding logo and colour options
  • discussing issues around setting up a suitable menu structure
  • discussing options for training and roll-out of Firefly
  • checking any issues around migration of any pre-existing content
  • checking the progress of installation and MIS integration, and identifying any possible holdups
We've found these meetings work best if there's a deputy head or senior member of the academic staff along with a key person from IT and perhaps an interested Head of Dept or ICT coordinator there.

The meetings generally take around 2 hours although it's helpful to allow a little room to spill over if required. It is also helpful to have access to a PC with internet access.
