Project Management : How We Work

Once projects have been strategically planned and prioritized, it's time to start implementation. That means project management.

Wikipedia defines project management as:
...the discipline of planning, organizing, and managing resources to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives...The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the preconceived project constraints. Typical constraints are scope, time, and budget.
First, we take your business goals and translate them into a technology project. We determine the scope of the project, including all the intermediate steps needed to achieve the desired results. These steps are documented and a detailed plan of action is decided.

Next, the project costs are calculated, including return on investment (you have to know if it is worthwhile!) . Then we try to find cheaper alternatives. We try not to spend your money.

Believe it or not, your involvement during this stage is mandatory. We need you to take ownership of the project. I'm not saying you need to run the project! You have better things to do. What I mean is you need to be there to make the decisions we cannot make. You need to inform us of company goals and standards then we'll do the heavy lifting.

If you try to avoid this step, you will face The Run Away Project of Doom. This money pit project will drain your company of resources and resolve faster than an IRS audit.
