Our engagement model

We have an unique EBIS consulting approach to deliver the solution which addresses our Customers’ business needs. The 4 phases are outlined below.

Phase 1:  Extraction of needs

We understand one approach for improvement is defining changes required in the organization and manage them. We strongly believe the key leadership team from organization has to be part of this phase. The effort in this phase will be an investment from both ValueGenix and the customer organization to ensure clarity on the needs for the solution and for acceptance by all key leadership team. We use our proven method to extract the needs for transforming organization test process, people and technology penetration required in testing.

Phase 2:  Baseline

The multiple layers of opportunity will be investigated for improving or transforming the organization made up of people, process and technology.

  1. Effectiveness and efficiency of Test Process end to end (development, system testing, maintenance & regression test)
  2. People competency level as expected in the role
  3. Technology penetration to enhance efficiency of testing

All these have to be assessed with proper metrics and these key metrics will be base lined. Discussion on where do we want to go to be completed and documented.  The investment required for this phase will be part of our initial proposal.  Once we agree on targeted goals for improvement the investment proposal for remaining phase will be shared and agreed before starting phase 3.

Phase 3: Implementation of solution

This phase will be in consulting mode to ensure the changes defined, team educated and assist in the successful implementation of activities planned as part of solutions. The effort and duration required for this phase will be budgeted and will work as one team to achieve the set goals in mutually agreed timeline.

Phase 4: Sustenance

As organization grows a new set of team may be inducted into the organization and also new challenges may surface. We ensure required consulting is provided to adapt the changes required smoothly and continue to perform as expected.
