Introducing Solution Jump Start

​The Solution Jump Start is a framework for short-term structured engagements, designed to deliver benefits in a quick and efficient manner. During our 3 Day, 1 Week, or 2 Week Jump Start projects, we provide expert consulting and rapid implementation of the features necessary to best capture the value of SharePoint. Jump Start has also been extended to include other products we work with often, including our own applications, ADFS, Power BI, and AgilePoint to name a few.

Solution Jump Start:

  • Framework for short-term structured engagements
    • 3 Day, 1 Week or 2 Week available
    • Multiple Jump Starts can be performed in sequence if there are several discrete projects
  • Delivers benefits quickly and efficiently
    • Scope is defined by the time period
    • No mission creep or "analysis paralysis"
    • Just enough time to see measurable results
  • Provided remotely, using emails, phone calls and web conferencing
    • Minimizes disruption to your staff
    • Controls costs

Solution Jump Start allows us to produce results quickly and remain flexible while controlling against analysis paralysis and mission creep. The way we accomplish this is by allocating dedicated calendar time for 3 to 10 business days. This time period forms the basis of what we're able to accomplish during the project. This arrangement helps to minimize risk on both sides, ensuring there's sufficient time that you see measurable results and lasting benefits at minimal cost, while also mitigating the risk of endlessly expanding scope that's typical in many IT projects.

Our solution plan provides sufficient time to complete the core deliverables on each day, while allowing a limited buffer of additional time for some unexpected circumstances and to customize our solution to meet your unique needs. Obviously, this means that at the end of the day, we simply may not be able to implement every need we identify on Day 1. However, if your requirements go beyond those we can accomplish in this timeframe, we can develop a detailed project plan after completion of (or as an alternative to) the Solution Jump Start. See Is Jump Start Right for My Project if you're not sure.

Solution Jump Start is designed to be provided remotely using emails, phone calls, and web conferencing to work with your staff. This methodology ensures that our consultants are able to help you while causing minimal disruption to your team's regular duties. It also keeps costs manageable by eliminating expenses for travel and lodging. If you feel that you require on-site service, please request a custom quote.

During a JumpStart, we provide expert consulting and rapid implementation of the features most necessary for your business.  We allocate 3 – 10 business days, and the scope is defined by what we can accomplish in that time period, based on your priorities. Our solution plan provides sufficient time to complete the core deliverables on each day, while allowing a limited buffer of additional time for some unexpected circumstances and to customize our solution to meet your unique needs.

Obviously, this means that at the end of the day, we simply may not be able to implement every need we identify on Day 1. However, if your requirements go beyond those we can accomplish in this timeframe, we can extend the Jump Start with another iteration or develop a detailed project plan after completion of (or as an alternative to) Solution Jump Start.
