EngageFirst has a proven consulting methodology which has supported us in building excellent rapport with all our clients. Our consulting methodology is collaborative and mutually beneficial. It results in the client not just getting a solution for the problem but also gaining in knowledge and capacity to deliver similar results internally. This approach of building capacity within the client organization has enabled us to deliver results that are sustainable and clients that are ever more self-reliant. Our consulting methodology is based on four foundational pillars.

  1. Superior project management
  2. Knowledge transfer and capacity enhancement within the client organization
  3. Proactive relationship management with the client organization
  4. Effective tools and methods

Our focus on client involvement and collaboration in the project is in acknowledgement of our belief that a successful solution must be client centric – developed for the client and with the client. Continued client engagement is essential both from the perspective of transferring knowledge of the problem to the consultant and for transferring knowledge of the solution and the solution process to the client. Our solution delivery approach has four distinct phases.

  • Problem Definition phase relates to identification and clarification of the problem.
  • Research and Discovery is the process of expounding the issues with a focus on building a deeper understanding of the problem.
  • Analysis and Synthesis phase is when we focus on analysing the collected information from a 360 degree perspective.
  • Solution Development phase is when the final solution takes shape.

The concept of collaboration and client engagement is central and consistent in all the phases of our project delivery. This ensures that the consultants stay on target to solve the identified problem, ensures all current information is available to the consultants, ensures that the client is continuously aware of the projects status and progress, and enables learning and capacity building in the client organization.
