The Shimshock Success Methodology
Our Shimshock Success methodology emphasizes reducing releases into discrete and manageable phases of work. Doing so accelerates the achievement of benefits, and mitigates overall risk.
An iterative approach is set as the project’s foundation during the initial design process.
