Rubinos Inc. – Taking You Further
In a 1994 study the Standish Group did research finding
that only about 17 percent of all software projects in the US meet their original goals. Some of
these projects go over budget, don’t get finished on time, or don’t do what they were originally
intended to do. An amazing 33 percent of all projects don’t even make it to completion.
At Rubinos Inc. we feel that unless properly handled, most projects are doomed from the start. The requirements gathering
stage, the first part, is usually glossed over or not even done. Sometimes people have assumptions
that they feel everyone else just understands. Sometimes 2 groups have different meanings for the
same terms leading to confusion. Occasionally people are afraid to even speak up in a group setting
thinking they don’t want to look confused or unknowledgeable about their jobs.
We have come up with a
method to help you avoid these problems. Starting
out with formal requirements gathering, moving to full project documentation, and taking you all
the way to a completed project, we work with you through every step of a project. We strive to
make sure that your initial vision is fully realized.
While we believe that this method is the best way to ensure success in a project, we also
understand that not everyone agrees with us, or may even be part of the 17 percent that already
has successful experience with project management. We are also happy to assist you in any stage
of the project in whatever way you deem fit.
Process improvement is also an area that we can assist you. Perhaps you feel that there are areas
of your business that could be streamlined, saving you time and money. Do you have remote staff that
needs to communicate more effectively with the home office? Is going paperless a goal that your
company has for business and social responsibility reasons? Let us come in and explore options with you.
