SCOPE AND FEASIBILITY ASSESSMENT
HAVING DIFFICULTY GETTING A COMPLETE PROJECT DEFINITION, PROJECT SCOPE AND VISION?
We help companies that are planning the business case for new technology initiatives to precisely map what stakeholders are looking to accomplish with this new system and the business benefits associated with this system. We do this for large clients where the scope is unclear, in complex environments such as:
- Flight operations for a global airline: Getting a common vision amongst stakeholders on scope.
- Revenue and plant distribution system for a North American printing company: Kick starting the momentum by organizing the stakeholders and preparing for a full requirements definition.
- New product introduction for a global financial services company: Investigate the business benefits, and the needs of the system to support a new line of business in a different country.
- Policy management system for a major insurance company: to accelerate the project plan.
For many clients, an assessment for the business case that leads to a requests for funding can take months. This means months of lapsed time and effort, with no guarantee of an approved project. We compress this cycle dramatically so that even in the most complex of project situations, a client can be ready to move forward with their business case in weeks rather than months.
IN A COMPLEX PROJECT THAT COULD TAKE MONTHS TO SCOPE, WITHIN DAYS WE CAN HELP CLIENTS:
Digital Mosaic assists executives and IT project teams with determining an initial system scope and feasibility. Our team of facilitators can assist with building the project definition, project scope and project vision. At the completion of a scope and feasibility study project teams have a better picture of whether a project is economically and strategically viable prior to committing significant resources and detailing Return on Investment (ROI), savings, benefits, project schedule, resource schedule, and risk assessment.
- Complete a detailed statement of project feasibility with recommendations
- Capture expected savings from this project and compare this to estimated development costs for a typical inside development effort using a discounted ROI.
- Identified non-quantifiable savings and benefits
- Assess the tentative project schedule given the refined scope and complexity
- Determine critical risk areas that are likely to arise over the project implementation
