digital development strategy – development and documentation

Improving company performance in the rapidly changing  contemporary times requires a powerful and reliable IT system. Increasingly, to ensure its success nowadays an organization must reconsider its mode of operation. One way to go is digitalization. Designing and implementation of a digital strategy requires expert knowledge and experience in the domain, making it often necessary for organizations to outsource the task to independent experts who are capable of developing an optimal model for the digitalization project management.

We develop digitalization concepts and strategies for business organizations. We propose IT solutions, train your staff and help implement your projects

B+R programming (automation) - consultation and documentation development

Modern organizations should be able to effectively and quickly integrate the latest scientific research findings into practice. This area of activity is as yet poorly developed in Polish business organizations. Frequently the reason for the inadequate cooperation between research institutions and businesses is the lack of knowledge, or awareness, on either side, that technology transfer projects can be financed with public money. Both the preparatory and management processes in technology transfer projects can be outsourced to independent experts, thus enabling businesses to focus solely on the attained knowledge and putting it to practical use.

Our consultants’ extensive experience in the domain allows them to develop complete and relevant project documentation necessary for research and development grant applications. We also indicate sources of financing, compile and prepare project  documentation and provide training to your staff.

innovative projects – from idea to grant documentation

Before it reaches the management stage, every innovation project requires a thorough description of objectives and assumptions, and needs to find a source of funding. One of the available sources of financing are the European Union funds. Applying for financial assistance requires the submission of a formal application written in the required standardized EU format. The correctly written application in fact guarantees that such financial assistance will be granted for the project. Therefore, it is highly advisable to turn, at this crucial preparatory stage, to independent experts and rely on the experience of consulting agencies.

We help create innovations, find sources of funding and develop and implement innovative projects.

project evaluation

Project evaluation is a systematic and objective examination concerning the relevance and effectiveness of attained results in terms of the actual needs of a specified target group. The purpose of project evaluation is to raise the quality of future initiatives by identifying their weaknesses and implementing appropriate improvement measures. A correctly conducted evaluation should identify the strengths and weaknesses of the project, help implement project activities in accordance with the  original project assumptions, enable the evaluation of the quality of the results and their more effective distribution, and include the stakeholders’ opinions.

Our experts will design an evaluation process for your organization’s projects, analyze the results, provide  recommendations and train your staff.

IT tools for project management

Efficient realization of all project activities requires the support of  information technology. IT tools are indispensable at every stage of project activity, from the preparatory stage of project application writing and submission, through task execution, to project evaluation and closure. With reliable IT tools it is easy to prepare your project application in the required and fault-free format, monitor task execution and accounting procedures, and distribute results.

We also offer our expertise with regard to IT tools selection and configuration and provide training to your staff to ensure flawless operation of the new IT tools throughout your organization.
