Enabling organizations to turn digital
innovation into business results

Some things never change. In ancient Greek mythology, the Argonauts sailed through dangerous waters and returned safely with the trophy in hand. Teamwork, determination, a clear objective and skillful diligence are the keys to success now, as they were back then.

Discovery Workshop

A one-day interactive workshop with client’s key representatives. The goal of the workshop is to have a high-level discussion about objectives, business models, success measurements, competitive positioning, key stakeholders, deliverables, milestones and next steps. The workshop takes place on the client’s premises.

Proposal

Based on the findings of the Discovery Workshop, we’ll develop a high level proposal, including scope, estimated cost, timeline, rules of engagement, deliverables, project organization and staffing.

Agreement

The contractual agreement will be developed based on the agreed and finalized proposal. Due to the agile nature of the projects the contract is usually on a time & material basis.

Project Planning

Depending on the size of the project, the planning will be divided into phases and may include a ‘Proof of Concept’. One of the key deliverables is the agreed ‘Minimum Viable Product’.

Develop Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

The Minimum Viable Product will be developed based on the agreed scope, applying an interactive and agile approach. This phase will also serve as a platform for on-the-job knowledge transfer and enable the client for future developments without external support.

Acceptance and Handover

Formal acceptance and handover to operation.
