In a time of shrinking budgets, increasing mission complexities, and faster technological changes, Government agencies must creatively adjust by transforming their processes, organizational structures and technologies to fulfill an expanding set of missions with less resources. Federal organizations can no longer afford projects that take a long time to produce results, fail outright – where no useful structure to support decision-making is ever delivered, or the software developed does not meet the real needs of the users, is not successfully used, or requires extensive rework to be usable.
Binary applies best practices from the field of agile software development to support our Outcome Driven Enterprise Approach™, decoding complexities to accelerate the delivery of business value. Through a process of continuous planning and feedback, our teams are able to ensure that value is continuing to be maximized throughout the engagement or development process in line with stakeholder’s key goals and objectives.
As a result of this iterative planning and feedback loop, Binary teams are able to continuously align the outcomes required with desired business needs, easily adapting to changing requirements throughout the process. By measuring and evaluating status based on the actual strategic plan, processes or software developed, this transparency provides accurate visibility into the real progress of projects.
Finally, as a result of following an agile process, at the conclusion of a project is a strategic plan, business process, or software system that much better addresses the enterprise and stakeholder needs in an integrated and synchronized manner..

The figure above is an example of Binary's ODEA™ methodology for the Army's Procure to Pay pilot
Binary’s Outcome Driven Enterprise Approach™ (ODEA™) helped the Army rapidly identify an opportunity for significant reduction in payment error rates, streamline processes, and transform its Procure to Pay system, demonstrating measurable results for the pilot program.
Focusing on outcomes that mattered to stakeholders, hundreds of enterprise requirements were narrowed to a handful of critical requirements, allowing the project to succeed despite an 80% budget reduction for the pilot.
Binary continues to deliver superior results using an Outcome Driven Enterprise Approach™, incorporating best practices and ongoing analysis and measurement, ensuring our customers are 100% satisfied and fulfill their ever increasing required missions with fewer resources.
