The needs that have been identified Matt and Grace have identified that they lack an online platform to sell their items and they move in to plan and create a website to seal the gap that is existing. Their main plan is to increase the number of customers and to expand customer base and to stretch across demographics irrespective new or old, Esen (2007). With the planning phase they have come up with steps and guides on how they are going to create such a website, what they are expected to do, how they are going to do, have a general assumption on estimate time, cost and all the possible risk that may be faced.
The objective of the project according to The owners believe that putting their grocery store on-line by creating a user-friendly website.in an aim to grow the population and broaden the market scope. For them to achieve all these they have to make the website be more appealing to the users and to cut across all the generation they have to understand what people need. They also need to repave the parking lot so as to accommodate more customers and to make customers find easy leaving their cars as they go shopping, hence more customers are attracted to the business Andrée (2006).This company also as to be able to attain the competitive advantage so as to keep up with other businesses and remain unique in the market as compare to others, they will be able to drive more income into the business and facilitate more growth.
For analysis Matt and Grace are supposed to analyses their budget and compare against their needs so as to be certain that they are operating within the react that they can pay for. Matt and race are expected to establish a contact with its stakeholders so that they will be able to capture all the input and operations logs that will help us to make an informed decision making They are expected to list and possibly test some of their assumptions. Always be careful when making assumptions Gido (2015). These should be our guiding principles:
• Can Matt and Grace increase sales by putting their operation online?
• Is there a demand for online services now?
• What are the benefits of doing this in terms of cost saving?
Matt and Grace also need to have a base line plan that will incorporate their needs. They need to also have to consult on which service to take as well as provide a well-informed suggestion
Thus the comsultant will have to check if the project objective should be able to implement the planning, initiating and the performing phase, they should come up with a well elaborated break down structure. Matt and race should be informed of the benefits of practicing e-commerce and how to beat the challenges. We should provide a well elaborated networked diagram to capture all the detailed activities.
