4D»2B

I've developed a needs analysis and project roadmap to guide initial information gathering on a map through the process. I call it 4D»2B ("forty-to-be"), shorthand for its six phases:

Dream › Define › Design › Document   »   Bid › Build

It's a web-based tool that filters hundreds of potential explorations, steps, and activities to just those relevant to any specific project on a road map through conclusion. I'd like to share it with you if it could help&mdasy;there's no cost for sharing the system so there's no charge for the phone call to review it. Call or email with with what you're trying to accomplish and I'll link you to the 4D»2B web tool where we can work through it together.
