Our Implementation methodology uses both a traditional waterfall to collection / define Requirements, and Agile Sprints to manage work efforts in fast paced / short intervals. We find this mix achieves the best of both worlds, and very effective at delivering on scope / on time and ultimately delighting our Customers.
We have found that concluding an engagement at Implementation Go-Live, can leave a Customer short of realizing their expected value. Ideally, Users have time to develop ‘muscle memory’, likewise Analytics and reporting should be at acomfortable state of maturity. At Athena, we work with each Customer to ensure we complete each Project to the Customer’s desired state of maturity / readiness, to ensure the intended Business Value is realized.
