Project Management Methodology
While it is technically feasible to implement most technologies within a few short weeks, it is often the people side of the system integration that can take much longer to change than the technology itself. A balanced framework focused on both stakeholders and technology is recommended. Our project management methodology is customized to every client and project consists of five project phases to achieve a balanced approach to implementation between stakeholder needs and technology.
