You are unique

Your organization’s needs are unique, your mission is unique and so is your growth strategy. We get that. We are continually building and adding to a set of core capabilities on the Lychee™ platform. These capabilities are drawn upon, customized or extended based on your need. If there is a specific requirement that we are unable to fulfill leveraging the core set, we will build it out for you. Our mission is to create a full range of tools and solutions that will facilitate efficient person centered care. Capabilities, functions and features that are developed are made available to all our clients.

You desire efficiency

Your dedicated Lychee™ team will work with you to build and Integrated Enterprise. We understand that there may be several Information Technology (IT) systems you rely on for your business to function. The Lychee™ team will spend time to work with you, other Vendors and systems to build interfaces that tie all the systems together.

Process

The following is a high level description of our process. Although the steps appear to occur sequentially, in reality many steps may progress iteratively in parallel.

Figure 2: Approach

  • Discerning: (di’surn – recognize, tell apart, perceive, detect, differentiate) The first step in the methodology is to understand the value creation process within the organization. To gain an understanding of the process, investigations are conducted to extract knowledge from existing documentation or personnel. The results of the investigation are documented to form the basis for subsequent steps in the methodology.
  • Visioning: (vizhun – imagine, foresee, predict, anticipate) The second step is to understand your strategic goals and objectives. During this step information regarding tangible and intangible success metrics is collected. These success metrics are recorded in such a way that progress can be measured by comparing against them, as accurately as possible.
  • Assessing: (ə-sĕs’mənt – measurement, judgment, review) The third step is to take stock of available resources. This allows for a reasonable judgment regarding how much of ‘The Vision’ can be achieved with resources on hand. During this step ‘The Vision’ and success metrics may have to be modified, to be achievable given existing constraints.
  • Mapping: (map – plan, delineate, arrange in detail)The third step is to determine a path to achieving ‘The Vision’, paying attention to various parameters such as budget, time line and other constraints. This involves lining up tasks and acquiring resources only when they are needed during the process.
  • Executing: (‘eksu`kyoot – perform, carry out, enforce, process) The fourth step in the method is to execute tasks (projects) determined within the plan. A task may be simple (fewer man hours; fewer iterations of analysis, design, development and testing) or complex (many man days, many iterations of analysis, design, development and testing). As each task is completed, success is measured against the pre-determined success metrics.
  • Evolving: (i’vólv – germinate, develop, change, acquire)Managing change is a crucial part of the execution strategy. As milestones are achieved, changes are anticipated from various sources – e.g. management redirection, changes in regulatory requirements and changes in the business environment…etc. These changes may impact ‘The Vision’ and how it is achieved. The evolution stage allows for change management and control.
