Intermediate Objective Map (IO Map)

The Intermediate Objective (IO) Map is a plan that determines the sequence of IOs to be achieved in the transition to implement the Injection. The logic of the sequence is that one IO has to be in place before the other IO can be achieved. There is a dependency based on tangible deliverables that each IO produces.
