Claromentis as a company recently embraced 5 core values that form a foundation of all of our approaches to our projects, and to our work with partners and suppliers alike.
Choice : this expresses itself in several areas, but is certainly one of our main values.
Any Operating system, any browser, any database, any delivery mechanism , any language.
Design : all of our interfaces area a pleasure to work in. Corporate software should be attractive, welcoming, intuitive and inspirational.
Clarity : we believe that most business challenges and IT solutions can be either clearly communicated in simple language or else are a distraction for all concerned.
Risk Management Our engagement model working through a proof of concept before significant funds are committed ensures that we minimize your risks in selecting Claromentis as a partner.
Fun to work with. We deal with complex information and process management issues – these should be important to your business – solving them should be an enjoyable process of working with talented people that can together make a difference.
I was in an all day client meeting today with a range of stakeholders in a complex Portal project that involves various private and public sector companies and organizations. And my conclusion from that experience is that the most valuable of these 5 values, particularly in the early stages of any project, is Clarity.
Time and time again we are able to engage people with diverse backgrounds, understand their requirements and explain the possible solutions in a clear, concise and meaningful way.
All of the other values build on a solid foundation of a clear understanding of the business requirements. There is no point having fun working together if the business definitions are unclear – fun would soon turn to tears. So although being clear takes effort, focus, patience and communication skills I personally believe it is our foundation for all projects.
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now stays faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Nigel : Claromentis Blog : Choice, Design, Clarity, Risk Management and Fun : the greatest of these is clarity.
