Case Studies

A state government had already spent over $30 million dollars on a technology project when the state hired Cirdan Group to perform an Independent Validation and Verification (IV&V) report on its project health and general status. The project was behind schedule, over budget, and not close to achieving its scope.

Upon completing its research and examination of the project, Cirdan Group delivered the difficult news to the project’s agency and state information technology (IT) executives: the project was in eminent danger of failure if the agency and contractor did not take immediate remedial steps. The agency and IT executives took Cirdan Group’s IV&V report and implemented the recommended changes over a period of 12 months; the stakeholders’ efforts dramatically reversed the project’s difficulties.

Although the initial negative news about the project was difficult for agency personnel to hear, Cirdan Group’s recommendations allowed the state to get the mission critical project moving in the right direction. When the state asked Cirdan Group perform an IV&V for the project two years later, the project’s personnel had dramatically improved the health of the project and thereby drastically improved services to its clients. Today, the project is considered a success.

Technical Writing
An international non-profit association of over 20,000 members approached Cirdan Group with a problem: it paid over a million dollars for a research document that was intended to introduce its members to a new professional strategy, but instead, the document was long, unfocused, full of grammatical errors, and generally unusable. The association staff needed to save its investment and produce a functional document to introduce and promote its new strategic plan.

For a fraction of one percent of the association’s original cost, the Cirdan Group technical writing team reduced the document’s size by half while retaining all necessary information. The team also reorganized and reformatted document information for readability and cogency. The association was able to compound its investment and savings by utilizing Cirdan technical writers to develop a strategic professional article and brochure also for a fraction of the association’s original cost.

Carefully and properly edited documents are essential for communication with your clients, potential clients, organization members, and personnel. Cirdan Group’s technical writing team has the experience and expertise to ensure that every document your organization produces is thoroughly proofread and formatted and successfully communicates your intended message.
