BUSINESS & SYSTEMS ANALYSIS
The process of gathering business requirements involves more than simply asking the users what they need and writing their answers down. Darby Consulting’s Requirements Gathering Worksessions are designed to inspire innovation and gain alignment across stakeholders on what the business needs from an application utilizing proven techniques to capture, document, communicate, and manage business and system requirements.
Whether you’re implementing software in the cloud or custom developing an application to fit your organization’s needs, it all requires people to change. It requires end-users, project team members, help desk specialists and trainers all working together to help each other adopt new skills, new behaviors, new processes, new features and functionalities.
A more effective IT strategy is one that not only aligns with the organization’s mission and goals, but is easy for non-technical business leaders to both understand and support. The key to aligning IT with the organization is to have a solid understanding of its needs, combined with a common understanding of the drivers and constraints that inform an effective strategy. Darby Consulting’s IT Assessment workshops are conducted in a manner that is both open and honest as well as forward-looking with the organization.
While it is technically feasible to select a software package with a few vendor demos, it is often the stakeholder component of the system selection process that can take much longer. A balanced framework focused on both stakeholders and the technology is recommended. Our methodology consists of four distinct phases to facilitate selection, create stakeholder buy-in and foster commitment that will lead to reduced resistance to change and accelerated system adoption.
Planning and delivering successful IT projects can be a challenge for many organizations faced with juggling multiple IT projects. Darby’s Quick-Start Workshops are designed to help your IT Project teams get more done in less time. Our experienced IT consultants help you accelerate key decisions and complete the more challenging aspects of planning successful IT projects.
