Step 4: Assess the likelihood of a project’s implementation success
How to Convert Your City into Smart City
Once a set of candidate projects that target a city’s Smart objectives has been identified, the next step is to formally assess the likelihood of successful implementation using the Smart City Piano (IMD).
The Smart City Piano defines seven keys that structure what a city needs to do to implement a Smart City project. For each of the seven keys, a number of different factors that will impact the implementation success of a potential Smart City project have been identified.
Because many of the Piano keys are closely interrelated and chronologically dependent, the seven keys are grouped into three different categories that logically follow each other in sequence, so that they can be played as “chords.”:
Category 1: Assessing the potential
Category 2: Preparing the groundwork
Category 3: Managing the execution
