CHAPTER 5 Common-Use Implementation A Framework for Success The roadmap for airport common use is designed to help airport operators see the overall picture, define business cases, and plan implementation. This roadmap can be used for internal discussion of and education in developing a common-use airport vision and strat- egy. It can also be used as the basis for assessing the airport's existing and required common- use capabilities, in order to help understand its current position and develop a strategy for the future. The roadmap emphasizes the need to balance the requirements of the airport operator and the key stakeholders (e.g., airlines, agencies, and solution and maintenance providers). Following this roadmap can assist an airport operator to break down traditional roadblocks when dealing with major implementation changes and new approaches. This chapter presents a brief overview of what road mapping entails, its benefits, and the process involved in building a roadmap and then presents a 12-step Roadmap to Common Use and its key success factors. Roadmapping Definition Roadmapping, in its simplest form, helps people to understand where they are today and where they would like to be at a stated point in the future. A roadmap provides a step-by-step transition path between these two states. Benefits Roadmaps provide structure, direction, and quantifiable objectives that can be shared and communicated with all stakeholders, both inside and outside the airport. Business benefits of roadmapping include the ability to Break transition plans into discrete and easily manageable steps Link airport operator business strategy decisions using a cost-benefit approach, thereby resulting in improved communication and consensus development Highlight the gaps between the key stakeholders Assist in developing priorities Support and develop consensus, which leads to focus and effectiveness Identify planned technology and asset management changes and determine when they will be introduced and/or come on line 73
