Project Management: The KEPLER Approach

We build a project charter with our clients. This charter describes the key aspects of the project in order to give the stakeholders involved enough vision to make “Go / NoGo” decisions during the various milestones.

It is imperative for us to understand the decision criteria of the different stakeholders at each stage of the project in such a way as to answer all the questions and thus move forward calmly towards the finalization of the project.

A Method Based on 3 Pillars


Objectives, Scope and Deliverables

Analysis of the problem

  • Rationale of the project
