Business Solutions Practice

Our Business Solutions Practice enables business and technology leaders to bridge the gap between strategy and execution.

Of companies are likely to have marginal success or fail outright because of poor business analysis practices

Of project failures are due to poor requirement collection, analysis, and management

Companies pay a premium of about 60% on time and budget when they use poor requirements practices on their projects.

Business Analysis provides a foundation for the successful realisation of business strategy and objectives. It represents a crucial link in translating an Organisation’s goals into successful delivery outcomes.

Business Analysts enable change in an organisation by clarifying the business need, evaluating proposals, and defining solutions that maximise value to stakeholders.

While Project Management focuses on the timely execution of project stages, the value of business analysis lies in the realisation of tangible project benefits, cost avoidance, identification of new opportunities, understanding of required capabilities, and design of efficient, cost-effective, and straightforward solutions for the business challenge or opportunity.

Through our consulting support, we help business leaders as they innovate their operational processes, capabilities, and technology, and help them to build holistic, well-integrated solutions for sustained competitive advantage. If your project requires clear insights and swift solution development, our team at The Project Foundry possess the expertise to assist you.

Our services are tailored to meet your specific delivery requirements. Whether you need additional capacity during peak periods or on-site experts to delve deep into every aspect of your strategy implementation, talk to us about how we can help.
