As we are a services-based firm, we work on the basis of individual projects. Each project is preceded by initial discussions with the customer, to define the scope and conditions of the project.
Once the scope and conditions of the project are clearly identified, The AST Company will make a detailed project offer detailing the project scope and key assumptions, as well as the planning and milestones. The project offer also includes a budget proposal, either as fixed price or on a time-and-materials basis.
After agreement by the customer, a joint kick-off meeting is usually scheduled, with the aim of finalizing the project organisation, identifying all participants and scheduling the initial project activities. Practical and logistic issues are also covered during the kick-off.
