Services

Business Process Reengineering

Business Process Reengineering is a response to the changes that organizations undergo over time. Often, the business processes that optimally supported the business in the past fail to meet current business needs. The deliverables of the session define processes you need to perform (workflow), the needs of each process (data, resources and quality metrics) and the results of performing the process (deliverables).

Program Management

RONIN IT Services, LLC works with project teams to integrate the technology and business issues so appropriate project management practices and change management strategies can be utilized to increase the likelihood of program success. We help our clients to achieve their business objectives on time and within budget. We do this by developing rapport with our clients, effectively managing expectations, communications and conforming to a proven and successful project methodology.
