How we work
We charge a fixed fee for our engagement as scoped. While we expect that this will translate into a proportion of full-time positions, we concentrate on the outcomes.
Our team are all seasoned business professionals with a broad range of skills and capabilities. With a range of specialisms, you get a whole team of digital leaders.
Our Agile approach
We work in an Agile way as this is the model that is most likely to produce successful outcomes that meet your needs.
We see the following as key to successful Agile projects:
The cost is essentially a product of the work vs timeframe – we usually work on a fixed-cost monthly subscription basis and our Agile approach provides maximum flexibility as your needs change over time. The key point is, you’re always in control.
We also don’t believe in locking clients into lengthy contracts. We’ll discuss the cost and schedule of projects, but you can cancel the engagement at any stage if you don’t feel you’re receiving value.
