Project design
This covers the situation when you need expertise to shape your project, but you don't know who will execute it. The short assignment will capture organisational objectives and high-level requirements. It may involve a capability assessment, marketplace survey or feasibility costing. We refund the 'design fee' if you later decide that Decision Evaluation are the advisors.

Fixed-price scoping workshop
Scope is a crucial foundation for your project. It shapes the departments, divisions and users affected, incumbent systems replaced, attendees for requirements capture sessions and of course the project budget. Yet scope is hard to define if you simply ask people: what do you want? A structured scoping workshop method breaks the scoping down into a simple, process.

Event Details

Who is it for?

Anybody who wants my advice, but cannot justify the overheads of a fully-fledged consultancy assignment.

What is it?

Email exchange, telephone call, WebEx conference or meeting.

Why?

Because you have specific questions not answered by general material such as the book or workshop.

What happens?

You book a slot and send any material ahead. I digest your material and contact you at an agreed time. All within the time box of the slot length that you booked.

What will we cover?

Your issues, with one of these, in order of preference: a solution; or a methodology for you to reach a solution; or a statement of the key issues for you to address.

What’s included?

All standard or new material that I send before, during or after the session | Some essential time set aside to concentrate on your issues.

What guarantees do you give?

This session uses powerful approaches that are already proven. If the session proves not to be excellent value for you, please let us know before the half-way point. If we stop then, we will return your session fee the next working day, without quibble. Please give us your views on how we can improve.

What next?

Contact us if you have questions about the Ask Martin sessions. Ring Martin on 07885 491197, or use the ‘Contact the Organiser’ link at lower right. Or book a slot and we will send the pre-session material. I look forward to hearing from you.
