In this initial phase, the focus is on understanding the client’s needs, challenges, and objectives. Consultants or IT experts engage with the client to gather requirements, analyse the existing systems or processes, and provide strategic advice or recommendations. The goal is to define the scope of the project, identify potential solutions, and create a roadmap or plan for implementation. We can assist with everything from creating a strategic roadmap to advising on vendor selection processes.
The advise process lays the groundwork for the subsequent stages of the project. Its thoroughness and accuracy significantly influence the success of the project, as it guides the direction and scope of the implementation phase (Build) and the ongoing operations and support phase (Run). This phase ensures that the solutions proposed align closely with the client’s goals and needs, setting the stage for a successful project execution.
