Pilot process and technology improvements to
select which ones to implement.
Pilots are performed to assess new and unproven
major changes before they are broadly deployed as appropriate.
The implementation of this specific practice
may overlap with the implementation of the Implement Action Proposals
specific practice in the Causal Analysis and Resolution process area
(e.g., when causal analysis and resolution is implemented organizationally
or across multiple projects).

quantitative criteria defined during pilot planning. Reviewing and
documenting results of pilots usually involves the following
- Deciding whether to
terminate the pilot, replan, and continue the pilot, or proceed
with deploying the process and technology
