Timely solutions are absolutely critical to your success. The CEO that plans the best, maximizes cost effective resources and concentrates on their business the most wins! It's that simple.
What's not simple, tough to recognize and the recipe for disaster is "Thinking good is good enough'.
The 'Project Feasibility As Soon As Possible' model sets the baseline for initial investigation.
1. What do you want? (Project Definition)
2. What for? (Project Justification)
3. How much are you willing to spend in terms of time, money and people? (Project Cost)
4. What is the time-frame? (Project Schedule)
5. What is the value to the Customer? (Project Audit)
