We have structured our project approach into four phases and in all of these phases, we have defined our set of methods we are addressing and customizing linked to the specific project needs.
- The initial phase As-Is-Analysis is the standard entry point for each project. Depending on the scope and importance of the project and the amount of pre-work done, the as-is-analysis will be scaled. This phase also ensures the right fit of the project approach and includes the familiarization with the customer culture and processes. We are mainly using standard tools like SWOT-Analysis, dependencies and interfaces or process mapping.
- The second phase is the Future-State-Design. The future state covers the future process and organisational design as well as methods, IT, maturity levels, tools and interface design to internal and external organisations. In comparison between as-is and future state a gap analysis will be carried out. Pilots or showcases will be implemented in order to have a first validation of the future state.
- Based on the gap analysis corrective and strategic actions will be defined and prioritised. This roadmap is the basis for the business plan and the framework for the implementation plan. Work packages will be defined and a detailed implementation schedule and resource plan are the commitment for the next phase, the successful implementation.
- With the implementation, we are driving and controlling the transition with professional programme management methods and the toolbox for operational transformation focussing on processes, methods, structure and people. This also includes change management.
Within each phase, we are using methods and tools to guarantee transparency and deliverables.
