  • Review and analyze your work products to create a set of preliminary focus issues to guide the interview process (we review materials including estimates, project plans, designs, standards, source code, test cases)
  • Conduct in-depth, onsite interviews with select personnel
  • Provide incremental findings and preliminary copies of the assessment report for your consideration and input
  • Work together to craft actionable recommendations to achieve your business goals
