Projects Finished On Time and On Budget
Validated by thousands of engagements for companies of all sizes, our methods are proven. We train our staff to assure continuity throughout the engagement. We measure our results and provide benchmarks and feedback to assure that we meet objectives. These methods have allowed us to develop a 3-to-1 on-boarding ratio, exceeding industry standards.
MindSource Method follows industry standard project management methodologies.
Our solutions-based method begins with a mutual agreement of business needs between MindSource and you, our client. We will help define objectives, and create specifications that include budget and timeline. Our capable team may even suggest other approaches to better reach your objectives.
We deploy the resources needed to turn your initiative into reality. Our consultants go through a vigorous technical screening process that includes reference and background checks. We guide you throughout the entire on-boarding process. We hold a kickoff meeting for both large and small engagements to revisit our commitments and make sure that the engagement stays on track. Our decades of experience and vast network allow us to bring the right talent to you.
Managing the details of an engagement can be complex and time consuming. Matrix management simplifies your daily and monthly duties by having support services available to you at all levels. Your dedicated account manager serves as a single point of contact for contract and reporting needs. Our operations team interfaces with your accounts payable and legal departments to manage consolidated billing. MindSource assumes responsibility for our consultant payroll, insurances and employee benefits, protecting you from any co-employment liability.
Throughout the engagement, our team supports you and our consultants to make sure that the deliverable of each technical project is met. Your dedicated account representative acts as a liaison between you and our consultants, managing all weekly and monthly reporting including statements of work and timecards. A project manager, if assigned, supervises technical aspects like bug tickets, weekly team meetings and setting priorities.
Commitments regarding return of intellectual or physical property are made good on at the end of the engagement. We’ll set up knowledge-transfer as appropriate and our consultants can often remain on call for support as needed. Finally, we’ll ask you to evaluate the engagement and provide your feedback and suggestions for improving our performance.
