Our business consulting approach is based on methods, practices, techniques, and tools that are routinely used in business systems analysis, design, implementation, and validation. This enables us to so address challenging business issues using models that are easily understood.

The success we have attained in business consulting is predicated on the fact that our approach adheres to structured techniques that are executed on a phase by phase basis, with each phase producing a well defined set of business constructs and models.

 

Approach

Assessment This is a formal process that analyzes the true needs expressed by a client, and transforms those needs into business requirements that are accurate and unambiguous. These requirements are expressed as statements of need at the context level, are decomposed to provide specifics, and are supplemented by robust process models that represent the situation to be addressed within the client's organization.

Formulation This is a disciplined framework that assimilates an economically effective business solution to address what ails the client. The solution is validated and defended to the client with the intent to uncover flaws that may hinder success. Through successive refinement, the solution is fine tuned to a level of impartial corporate acceptance, and an implementation plan is devised along with accompanying cost.

Implementation The plan derived during formulation is put into action by solidifying financial commitments, organizing teams, allocating resources, and enforcing strict timelines and milestones. During implementation, as changes are made to existing business practices, organizational culture, and human capital; site reviews are conducted to confirm that the accepted business solution is having a positive outcome.

Appraisal A formal review is performed following the implementation of the accepted business solution or practice. This is an impartial qualification of the level of success being experienced by the client, with pre and post performance data benchmarked to validate the expected targets. Conclusions are drawn whether the business need has been addressed, and whether this is directly attributable to the implementation.

Formal

The methods and practices we observe for qualifying and addressing business issues are formal, practical, and result driven. Clients are directed through systematic steps that assess, formulate, implement, and appraise specific business constructs that are the most fitting remedies for their current business situation.

Deliverables

Our engagements are segmented into four phases, with each phase producing a well defined set of deliverables. Assessment defines the situation and establishes the objectives. Formulation devises a remedy and a plan. Implementation enforces the remedy. Appraisal measures the success of the remedy.
