Scope of a Development Plan


Step 1: Define Current Technology Needs and StrategyNexwrx will assess your company needs.

We will help your organization to identify the constraints, such as budget, that may impact your purchases. We will help establish the operational metrics associated with your IT environment. Set goals for computer server performance, network availability and software application reliability.

Step 2: Identify Requirements - the owners and stakeholders identified in the technology strategy are asked to do a needs assessment, evaluate the current state of technology and create success measures. We will help you choose a technology platform that can grow and change with your company and supports your strategic objectives. Nexwrx will implement the use of templates, tools and resources provided by Websites, such as the SCORE Website, to help you decide how much you can spend on technology investments.

This step involves setting up the systems, communicating the change to your organization and providing training. It is important to align these efforts with the original strategy and success measures to make sure you are on target as the implementation stage unfolds. (Download Implementation and Training Plan)
