We are happy to develop a comprehensive IT project for you that meets your needs and requirements:
Our structured project-management methodology is based on PRINCE2. From the initial phase of comprehensive preparation, with a workshop and a proof of concept, through active project management and coordination, we ensure the project's success. The project management is based on checklists that will be developed during the kick-off meeting with the client, based on their requirements. These checklists in turn will be the foundation upon which the project concept is built. This will serve as a roadmap for the implementation and subsequent deployment.
In addition to the traditional approach, we offer an agile implementation methodology, comprising five stages:
and is extremely flexible. However, this flexibility is not associated with much higher costs. Not just the technology, but also the client's business processes are at the forefront of our minds. Agile projects are characterized by definition and development stages where we work closely together with the client. Each phase ends with a software release, which is then deployed in the productive environment. Throughout the project, we document both the requirements and the conceptual and implementation decisions.
Whichever method you prefer: By keeping you informed throughout the project we can ensure that you will always have a detailed overview of the project’s timeline as well as of resources.
