Strengthening organizations with process, structure and technology consultation
Process – Consulting engagements begin with analysis: understanding the whole of a business and its parts. They model the sequence of tasks in multiple processes from inception to completion; they work out the roles and responsibilities of each manual or automated actor in the system that accomplishes a set of tasks to fulfill a business need; they study the policies that ensure compliance to regulatory requirements and accounting requirements, and they apply their knowledge of product functionality to ensure the best fit of application to process.
Structure – Without structure, things fall apart. Projects require a framework – scaffolding that supports the construction of an application environment that is the foundation for the systems that business requires to operate efficiently.
Technology – Consultants bring experience and technical know-how, knowledge of complex configuration and set-up, knowledge of database structures, query techniques, reporting tools, development languages, testing tools, – an extensive list of technical skills and capabilities. Exceptional consultants are able to go beyond what they knew and what they currently know – they are voracious acquirers of new information, new techniques, new solutions. Consultants at The 1218 Companies are brought into the team because they know the how-to, and they are always learning.
