We believe that project success is directly correlated with resources that possess the right skills, experience and commitment. We employ a rigorous pre-screening and selection process that goes beyond just interviews and reference checks to ensure we hire the best candidates as part of our team.
At ThoughtStorm we like to use a simple and agile approach for undertaking complex initiatives. We work very closely with our clients during the Discover phase to gain a deep understanding of our clients’ business environment.
We explore problems, challenges and opportunities which are then translated into tangible initiatives that the client organization must undertake to achieve its business goals and objectives. This includes a 360-degree analysis of every internal and external variable that influences options, recommendations and implications.
After a thorough discovery, we then develop a Plan that sets out the clear roadmap of what must be accomplished to complete the proposed initiatives. The plan phase requires a multi-faceted approach which considers factors such as capabilities, organizational maturity, resources, priorities, constraints, schedules and quality objectives.
ThoughtStorm then embarks to Deliver the plan as per the agreed upon baseline. A successful delivery depends on the disciplined approach that involves proactive risks and issues management, progress tracking and reporting, responding to internal and external changes, and ensuring decisions are made in a timely fashion. During the deliver phase, we ensure our client organization is ready to receive and operationalize the final solution(s). Our ultimate reward is the successful transition and implementation of a solution which exceeds our clients’ expectations.
