Understanding your business is undoubtedly the most important factor in order to achieve competitive advantage. An appreciation of the resources, capabilities and business processes will help you determine your business strategy and future projects.

We have worked along side our clients on various business analysis initiatives ranging from the leading the complete end-to-end business process modelling for a large gaming organisation through to defining the customer journeys and UX for the payment processing of a large online retailer.

  • Process re-engineering

Project Management

Across the digital industry, the reality is that often projects fail to be delivered within budget – or are not delivered on time. Why? Well, in most cases, it’s not because the chosen agency can’t come up with ideas, or can’t design, or program; it’s usually because they failed to plan correctly.

Selecting Yellow Mango to manage your project or programme will undoubtedly pay dividends and make sure you don’t have any of these problems. Our expert project management team have years of experience working with our clients to ensure projects are delivered on-time, to budget and to the highest possible standards.

From initial fact-find workshops, we will scope out your project, ensuring objectives are defined, risks are identified, timescales are set and resources are secured. Your dedicated project manager will then work with you to agree creative concepts, functional specifications documents, budgets and time plans. They are then your key point of contact and are constantly available to provide specialist advice and regular progress updates. They will manage the release of modules to you for testing and provide training on your content management system prior to agreeing the go-live plan.

We have been responsible for delivering numerous projects across different industries ranging from infrastructure related projects all the way through to new replacement digital platforms for large .com’s.

  • Full project management life-cycle experience
