PROJECT PLANING AND EXECUTION

Our approach to problem solving is based on the four stages of creative thinking
  1. Saturation, which is when we endeavor to understand all we can about the problem
  2. Incubation, which is when we let our acquired knowledge from stage one and our tacit knowledge germinate
  3. Illumination, which is when we come up with solution options
  4. Verification, which is when we develop and test the best solution path

Our approach to project planning is based on phases. A phase has prescribed objectives, deliverables, milestones, timetable and pricing—enabling go/no-go decisions. The go/no-go decision points are designed to manage risks inherent to an innovation project.

Projects may range from having been defined well to not so well defined. The latter arises when our customer does not have all the answers to the solution requirements. We can usually help our customers develop the solution requirements with an initial project definition phase, which also creates a project plan, including deliverables, timetable and budget.

Projects may range from simple to complex. Our approach to complex projects is systems thinking to tease out non-obvious interdependencies. Complex problems by their nature often require development and application of new ideas and concepts, introducing opportunity and risk. Additionally, unanticipated opportunities and risks often arise in complex projects. We strive to communicate and address these opportunities and risks promptly.
