Ready Set Project - Overview

Ready Set Project
Plan Successful Web Projects

Your company's web site does not have to be complicated, expensive, or maintenance intensive. Widespread adoption of information technology has exponentially increased the availability, capability, and complication of its use, and consequently the difficulty of selecting appropriate solutions. Ready Set Project is a professional consulting firm that specializes in web and information design for businesses.

The Internet is an information resource for people. To focus resources on efforts that increase satisfaction and multiply return, learn the expectations of your customers, employees, organization, and community. Use technology that facilitates efficient development, operation, and collaboration to clarify your message, simplify your business, and satisfy your customers.

Ready Set Project is Lean, Agile, Professional, and Transparent.

No technology or management methodology guarantees the success of your web site, however most companies claim and promise complete satisfaction. To survive, companies must balance adaptation, standardization, arbitration, and capitalization. While managing those constraints, the performing company must objectively collect customer requirements, and interpret those variables through the subjective filter of capability. The technicians selling and implementing technology are over committed, required to gain proficiency in decreasing time-frames, while disconnected and isolated developers reinvent functionality, misapply terminology, ignore efficiency, and extend deadlines, sacrificing the potential of your project.

Ready Set Project solves problems efficiently.

Using best practices and multidisciplinary design optimization, the consulting process iterates through the following phases:

Issue Identification
Goal Setting and Key Performance Indicators
Resource Breakdown Schedule

Industry Intelligence
Organizational Values
Language and Context


Resource Allocation


The contributions of each phase's effort is captured by utterances, and serve as planning inputs for subsequent phases, improving the accuracy of project schedule, the efficiency of staff leverage, and the consistency of information quality.

Plan and execute your web site by utilizing professional procedures and expert consultation.

Focused Research
The same comprehensive analysis we use to build web solutions, can be be applied to any problem affecting your organization, customers, or offering. Race ahead of your competition to adopt emergent technologies, exploit mature methodologies, and win, with strategic direction from Ready Set Project.

SaaS and Cloud Alternatives
Infrastructure is optional. Benefit from economies of scale, optimal design patterns, and flexible integration. Before you re-invent the wheel, evaluate the viability of alternatives.

Information Ecology and Audit
Executives and managers inheriting web responsibilities need to identify organizational information assets. Decouple legacy infrastructure, optimize user experience, and improve conversion.

Scope of engagement is scalable to meet client's requirements.

I am still refining the verbiage and descriptions, many terms will require primary linking to explain full concepts, so please do not hesitate to offer criticisms or ask questions.
