Proven delivery and change approach

We are invested in our clients’ success, which is why we aim to fully understand your organisation’s objectives and technical requirements before implementing any solution. This requires a structured approach and strong cooperation and collaboration with your team.

Our proven approach is outlined below:

  • Scoping. This first phase involves detailed investigation of the activities, processes and operations to understand the needs of the project. We then develop a comprehensive approach to address these needs by identifying the scope, including product functionality, solution gaps, and potential workarounds. Additionally, we assess project risks and develop strategies to mitigate them proactively.
  • Implementation. The purpose is to configure functions, ensuring the software aligns with specific requirements. Rigorous testing is conducted to validate the system’s functionality, followed by comprehensive training sessions for users. User Acceptance Testing ensures the system meets stakeholders’ expectations. Data migration and conversion processes are carefully executed to ensure seamless transition and uptake. Finally, the system is launched into production, with ongoing support and maintenance provided to ensure smooth operation post go-live.
  • Project Management. We’ll customise our approach to match your governance needs. Using the Agile methodology, we break down tasks into sprint iterations for efficient and clear progress tracking, and establish clear roles and responsibilities for all involved, ensuring seamless collaboration and communication.
  • Change Management. Successful change can be the difference between project success and failure. Good change management acknowledges the journey an individual takes over the course of a business transformation. It exists to facilitate user adoption, derive expected benefits and support the workings of the wider team.
