Create a Governance Team

Creating any corporate strategy is a collaborative process. We start by establishing the Governance Team, which is composed of representatives from your project, financial, and legal teams that provides oversight for your primary objective or program.

Assess your Corporate readiness

We evaluate the readiness of your organization along a variety of dimensions through a "Strengths/Weaknesses/Opportunities/Threats" (SWOT), including:

  • IT infrastructure

  • Project complexity
  • Previous experience on any such development

We then construct a plan to ensure there are no technical or organizational impediments to the success of your program.

The one that is right for you depends on your strategic goals, the start-up time you need, the financial structure you require, and a number of other factors. We carefully consider all of your requirements:

  1. to find the best model for you.
  2. to evangelize that model throughout the corporation
