An acquisition process as described above could involve several individual adaptations that might take place in sequence - see figure C.3 above - or in parallel. For each of these adaptations, an adaptation plan will need to be formulated. The way in which this is built up follows a characteristic EM risk-driven approach.
l-igure C.7 provides an outline of adaptation planning. Each of the steps in that outline will now be examined in turn. As an example, let us take a relatively small adaptation. As part of a wider acquisition, an organization needs to have user documentation for a new information system written in German for use by the German part of the organization. In this environment, the work practices vary from country to country and so a simple translation of the English language version would not be adequate. It is decided to contract this work out.
