Microsoft Dynamics Sure Step A comprehensive brand representing: 1. A repeatable, consistent, *scalable* implementation methodology. 2. An end-to-end business process that guides both consulting teams and customers through all of the phases and tasks involved in an implementation of Microsoft Dynamics (regardless of the specific solution). 3. A flexible, customizable framework with project AND productspecific components and tools. 4. A competitive pre-sales tool that differentiates us in the ERP space because it integrates project management principles into the implementation phases of the project life cycle.
