Methodology

Our methodology varies depending on the type of project, but most projects include the following:

  1. Analysis:

    All projects start with an analysis of: (1) the goals of the project, (2) the users of the technology, (3) the goals and concerns of the stakeholders, and (4) the content and existing knowledge assets.

    Interviews, surveys, utilization-data review, and small-group brainstorming are all important techniques used in deriving a clear, integrated statement of project goals. These data inform the definition of content, functionality, and user-interface design.

  2. Communication:

    The Gnaritas project manager keeps in close touch with the client sponsor, subject matter experts, and other team members to keep them up to date on the project work flow. Status reports, conference calls, and in-person meetings occur on a regular basis to keep everyone informed and the project moving forward.

  3. Design/Information Architecture:

    During this phase, we gather information about end-user goals and current understanding and analyze it with respect to existing content. We also create content-development plans to fill any gaps. The resulting insights inform the architecture of the system to be developed, whether it is an e-learning course, a community portal, or a project-based learning design.

  4. Programming, Implementation, and Evaluation:

    Using approved specifications, Gnaritas programmers, web developers, designers, and content developers work together with the client to construct the product.  Our process includes built in opportunities for changes and revisions. During the evaluation, Gnaritas does redundant testing on technical applications to ensure the product that is free of defects prior to launch.

  5. Satisfaction:

    During and after the project’s launch, Gnaritas is always available to assure its smooth delivery. The project is not finished until the client is 100% satisfied with our product or service.
