One of the most critical components of a successful software project is the clear definition of what that project is - why it's being done, what is to be accomplished, who is involved, what materials will be needed, who will be providing those materials, approximately how long it will take, and perhaps most importantly, what it will cost so that you can budget accordingly.
I offer a comprehensive Project Scoping service, where I analyze your project, collect the required materials, identify the requirements, and spell out the proposed solution. The resulting scope documentation can be used to start the development of your project, or shopped around to other providers. Either way it gives you a clear roadmap to a successful project and keeps everyone on the same page.
The resulting document will contain exhaustively detailed specifics, clear and concise language throughout, and strive to avoid any ambiguity. It is very beneficial to have all of this information documented in one place - even if the process of creating it is enormous. Additionally, a project scope is absolutely necessary for accurately assessing the costs and time involved in delivering a customized solution.
I know how important starting with a good project definition is. Very often it's the difference between a successful project and a failure. I want your project to succeed, and I know that having a good plan in place from the beginning will help ensure that happens. I'm confident that my services are reasonably priced and that you'll continue with me as the developer of your project.
For most small and midsized projects it is, but it might not be. If a project is deemed too large to asses within 6 hours, it will be split into phases. The project scope will define the first phase of the project, and the first phase will include time to further define subsequent phases of the project.
