How is a business consulting project organized and started?

Mostly everything can be tailored to your business needs and goals; the typical consulting project begins the following way:

  • Free consultation to discover business goals and challenges

  • If we require more sensitive on in-depth information, we will sign an NDA

  • Proposal development outlining the scope of work, pricing, timeline, and recommendations

  • System integrations for effective collaborations

  • Communications plan and milestone reporting

  • Final knowledge transfer so results are sustainable

After the project has completed an official closeout, we will periodically check in to make sure everything is still working as it should, and you can sustain results over the longterm, after the consulting project is over.
