As soon as you have a need for product development or engineering services, an Indesign Business Development Manager will work with you to help you determine if we are a good match for your project. Our typical process for engaging with you on a new project involves the following four stages:
Stage 1: Inquiry
This is an initial discussion between you and our Business Development Manager to share our general skills and capabilities to see if we might be a good fit for your project needs. After this discussion we will often mutually decide to establish a non-disclosure agreement to facilitate the exchange of further information.
Stage 2: Discovery
This is a detailed discussion with your team and our team. The purpose of this discussion is for us to get an in depth understanding of your project needs and for you to get a firm understanding of our specific technical capabilities in areas needed for your project. Typically, this discussion will involve appropriate members of your team, our Business Development Manager, our engineers, and an Indesign Project Manager.
Stage 3: Proposal / Statement of Work
Based on the information we have received in the Discovery stage, we may mutually agree to create a detailed project proposal or Statement of Work (SOW) for your project. This Statement of Work will define project scope, activities, deliverables, schedule, costs, and proposed business terms. We will work closely with you to create and refine a Statement of Work that will satisfy your needs.
Stage 4: Project Kickoff
Once we have reached agreement on the Statement of Work, Indesign will then assemble all of the people and resources needed to start the project. Typical projects will include a kickoff meeting with members of your team and members of the Indesign Project Team.
