Typical Pipeline

 

Our typical pipeline starts with a client's problem and ends with our reporting of the solution. It is composed by our value chain of steps that are represented below:

The project starts with an exposition of a problem by the client, which leads to a preliminary discussion of the ways to solve it in the first meeting. After this meeting, we write a formal proposal referring the plan to solve the problem as well as the final deliverables, which is usually a report of the project.

 

A second meeting takes place to discuss further details of the project, including the ongoing market research. In this meeting we discuss our mapping of the sources of risk and the options available now and in the future. This helps us clarify the model's structure and further research directions.

 

The project proceeds with financial data analysis and the building of a model customized to our client's problem and business environment. After that, we calibrate the model's parameters based on our treatment of the financial data and the data compiled during market research.

 

These processes are reported and presented to the client in a feedback meeting, in which we engage the client in a detailed discussion of the calibration and first results of the model. After that, we produce the final results and proceed with a sensitivity analysis. We then discuss our final conclusions and solutions with our client.

 

The project ends with the delivery of a final report detailing our conclusions and solutions as well as the steps undertaken to support them.
