We identified a need in the market, aimed at a subset of the typical Project Management tools, to manage requirements and client/stakeholder expectations to ensure the success of any project.

Requirements Management” is a process that identifies stakeholder needs and then manage the process of analysing, prioritizing, agreeing and documenting requirements that ensures all role players fully understands the journey ahead.  This is supported by controlling the change management process and ensuring buy-in through proper communication processes. Benefits Tracking is used to track the success of the intervention and to report to stakeholders.

To address this need, SmartMob offers two options. The first option is to facilitate the process on any individual project, working with the project team and stakeholders, to ensure success and a greater Return on Investment.

The second, and recommended option, is to facilitate the process through a training, mentoring and coaching process. This approach will not only increase the Return on Investment of any project, but also ensures that your project team is skilled and empowered to repeat the process on other projects.  This is a long-term strategy to significantly improve your profitability and Return on Investment.

I am looking forward to help improve your Return on Investment! Contact us for a free consultation.
