Vision Consult

Many organization IT organizations find themselves in a reactive mode to meet the ever changing needs of the business. Today, businesses have a variety of competing initiatives generally pointed at increasing revenue and overall market share. Whether in the private or public sector, having the opportunity to step back from the technology initiative to fully understand the impact on the business can be a turning point for project success. Too often, IT projects move forward so quickly that little time is spent understanding how the business, the users, will measure success, including their overall usage and adoption. Knowing how the business will measure success can directly impact how a project is prioritized, resulting at times in a more poignant solution, that has buy-in from the get-go.

At Softchoice, we believe IT can play a strategic role in defining the competitive advantage through technology alignment and company direction. The Softchoice Vision Consult offering provides a facilitated "no-prep" workshop delivered by a senior consultant with proven experience working with cross-functional teams all resulting in a high-impact visual depiction and vision session report. This initial definition will provide a clear framework to guide and support the functional and technical aspects for enablement.
