Systematic approach is the core concept of Systematic Brains. It consists of a holistic view of the organization, decomposition of its entities, understanding its processes and their interdependences, as well as the organization’s interaction with external entities – clients, suppliers, partners, etc.
The work process follows the following structure:
- Feasability – understanding the problem and establishing mutual understanding of all stakeholders’ expectations, roughly outlining scope and estimating cost. Deciding if further work is feasible and partnership mutually beneficial. Securing higher management commitment.
- Analysis – analysis of the organization, process mapping and gaps analysis, needs analysis, problem identification.
- Research – finding the best solution for the identified problems through research, comparative analysis and gaps analysis.
- Design – planing incremental implementation, integration, risk analysis, lifecycle management.
- Pilot Implementation – procurement / deployment of infrastructure, solution and supporting services. Setting user roles and security.
- Testing – technical, functional, usability, etc. validation and verification of solution.
- Training and Documentation – stakeholder training: higher / middle management, operational employees, external stakeholders (suppliers, contractors, etc.)
- Incremental Systems Integration – gradual introduction of the new / improved system along the existing solution (if any), data migration, validation and verification.
- Migration – switching to new solution and archiving existing solution (if any).
- Maintenance and Continuous Improvement – support and optimization during system lifecycle.
- Retiremment – preparation for migration and archiving.
This workflow is used as a blueprint and adapted at each level of abstraction – ogranizational, system, process, problem, etc.
