Project Services Model
Historically, organisations have taken traditional recruitment style approaches to source individuals with certain skillsets to complete a specific project. However, this generally results in substandard resources and can leave an organisation exposed and lacks the quality assurance whilst costing valuable time in management and multiple procurement agreements and touch points.
Our project services model provides you with flexible access to the resources our clients require to meet the needs of the business and users.
We typically deploy our consultants via one of five models:
Project Resources - this can be one or more leaders or functional specialists to add capacity or capability.
Outcome focused team delivery - Smart Co takes a lead responsibility for creating and executing a delivery approach to solve a complete business scope in close collaboration and under the ownership fo the client team.
Interventions - We deliver an intervention design agreed by the customer to achieve a specific goal; Project Assurance, turnaround, accelerating delivery, hyper-care implementations, etc.
Task & Deliverable Production - Customer does not want to line manage people to complete a task but be more focus on supporting the inputs and validating the outputs.
Flexible Resources - For quick bursts of expertise or POC work that doesn’t require full time.
