Most of the End-To-End projects that we lead are large, complicated, projects that are absolutely critical to the business. These projects are often modifications or completely new versions of the core software that the business leverages for its day to day activities. When adding up all the business requirements stakeholders and the technical resources, both internal and external, there are often hundreds of people to manage and report to.
These are the projects that only a few companies in the world can manage successfully and OSG is one of those companies. These projects require the most current technical capabilities plus the leadership skills that can only come from years and years of experience.
Engagement Step 1 - We bring in our top enterprise or solutions architects to meet with all the key stakeholders at your business. We compare the business goals of the project with the current technical capabilities and capacity. At this stage, what we are looking for are clear descriptions of deliverables and a technical team that can either be augmented to meet those deliverables in the time frame needed or the ability to build an entirely new dedicated team for this project. We are very discerning about the projects we choose to take on because they absolutely must succeed on time and on budget.
Engagement Step 2 – Once we have buy-in from all the stakeholders about how the project will be resourced we go about building the high-level project plans with our most talented people. These plans cover all aspects of the project from resourcing technical talent, detailed project plans with milestones, testing, training, launch and fine tuning. When all stakeholder’s signoff on this master strategy document we can begin the full engagement.
Engagement Step 3 – Full engagement, this is where the magic happens. When you put the best people together with the best technical plans and complete stakeholder signoff, projects run better than you’ve ever seen them run before. You will see agile and lean working as they should and your team will learn from the best. These long projects often run for over a year and have their inevitable challenges. These challenges serve to fuel the innovative skills that come with 25 years of experience. Your project will be completed on time and on budget and your team will have acquired new development skills that they will continue to use long after we're gone.
