12. If we use the Framework, what is ISCG’s role in the project?
ISCG professional consultants are available to provide assistance in any of the following roles:
a) Mentoring / project oversight role
b) Traditional consulting role where the majority of the work is done by ISCG
c) Middle-ground approach
In a middle-ground approach, ISCG may provide high-level oversight on some tasks, and detailed involvement in other tasks. You can make those decisions as your project evolves, but most clients need ISCG’s involvement in a project oversight role at a minimum.
Acquiring the Framework with no consulting hours whatsoever is not recommended unless you have a dedicated project manager with experience implementing systems via a structured methodology.
