Q: How do you evaluate projects? Can you do a separate evaluation of the project itself, before bidding on the work?

A: Absolutely. Before any commitments are made, Orthogone meticulously evaluates potential projects. This critical first step involves a thorough workload estimation, prioritization, and an anticipatory outlook on potential hurdles. We sometimes recommend conducting a standalone feasibility study to lay a solid foundation for detailed planning and budgeting. Such a proactive approach ensures that the project’s financial parameters are aligned with the client’s budget, including provisions for unforeseen developments.
