Engagement Models and PM Process

Engagement Models

Ingegno offers a mix of engagement models for our customers to meet their business needs.

Fixed Bid

The fixed bid model is best suited for small and medium level projects where the scope of work is clearly defined and agreed upon by the customer and Ingegno. This model allows customers to pay a fixed price for all milestone deliverables for the entire project. The project plan in such scenarios clearly specifies the scope, costs, deliverables and schedule and any scope changes during the project execution stage would result in a change in the price.

Time & Materials (T&M)

This model is ideal for projects where the requirements are flexible and change frequently based on the customer’s needs and intended business goals. The customer is billed based on the actual efforts spent by the team and provides flexibility to the customer in utilizing the team for several requirements.


This model is ideal for projects that do not have defined business goals or requirements identified at the beginning of the engagement. This model utilizes T&M techniques to estimate project costs and allows customers to pay a fixed price based on the estimated efforts. This model helps customers to optimize their budgets without comprising on the quality of deliverables.

Dedicated Team

In this model, a set of domain experts work as an extension of the customer’s project team for a dedicated period of time. The customer has complete control over the project and the team and billing is based on the number of staff deployed every month. This model is easy to implement and provides knowledge retention and clear understanding of the customer’s business goals and expectations.

Project Management

Ingegno’s project managers are practitioners of both waterfall and agile methodologies for delivering successful business outcomes for our customers. At the beginning of every project, we work with our customers to assess, identify and agree upon the best suited methodology for that engagement.

Our project management life cycle has five phases: Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring and Control and Closure.


Each phase in this life cycle is iterative; our customers’ review and approve each milestone before we move on to the subsequent phase. The iterative approach of development allows us and our customers to work collaboratively and complete any desired modifications immediately for each phase thereby avoiding scope, cost and schedule overruns at a later stage of the engagement.
