Since we officially launched PreQuel in 2013, we’ve gotten a lot of questions about what it is and what it can do for different organizations. In a nutshell PreQuel is strategic consulting to help you define and articulate your vision for success.

Make sense?

We have had a lot of organizations come to us with great ideas for new technology or improvements to their business processes, but how can they be sure they are recommending the best solution for their organization without knowing all the facts or consulting with an expert? They can’t.

Understanding PreQuel is simple. PreQuel is about engaging a team of our best consultants to meet with you and your interested stakeholders to clarify what the needs and ultimate goals of the business are. Have you considered possible risks of proceeding or not proceeding with your initiative? Do you have a clear understanding of the best solution for your business problem? Let our experts figure that out for you.

Through a facilitated workshop we will ask the right questions and collect the right information needed to create a thorough report for you to share with your business leaders. Don’t walk into murky waters alone. Let us help you clear the way with a vision of where you are going and how you will get there.
