Our planning engagement and phases are key steps to deeply understand your business processes and build a solution tailored to your organization.
Business Process Analysis
Analyzing your organization’s processes is the core of each planning project. Understanding how your staff does its work and the data you need to collect ensure we translate your needs into the best system design. This has been a long-accepted technique for building successful enterprise software, but often developers building for nonprofits take shortcuts in understanding the unique aspects of these organizations as a whole, not to mention individual variations. Our consultants are experts in business process analysis and apply it in our planning engagements and phases to make sure your solution is as unique as your organization.
For organizations with more complex system requirements, we offer planning engagements. These engagements are also beneficial when you are unsure what solution you need, and/or you’d like a more in-depth assessment of the full cost of an extensive system. Projects consist of discovery, requirement analysis, design, and recommendations. If you’d like to pursue an Agile methodology for your project, it will also consist of user story development.
