Consulting Approach Technical workflows for media business processes – designed by Qvest Media

Consulting Approach

The speed at which the media world is changing is breathtaking. It has always been like this – and it is what sets the industry apart from other sectors. What is new, however, is the pace at which changes are occurring. Reasons for this include the convergence of media, shorter innovation cycles and the different ways in which media are used.

Despite all the potential that this offers for the increasingly important value chain, it is posing a no less complex challenge for media companies with regard to the technological concept that they should be adopting to shape a business model commercially and operationally and to safeguard it over the long term.

The intersection of business, technology, operations and development is the point of departure for Qvest Media Consulting & Development. Thanks to our past, we know the specific requirements and processes of broadcasting, telecommunications and media providers like the back of our hand. We can translate prevailing mega-trends, and the media business processes associated with them, into technical structures and workflows like no other technology consultancy in the world.

Successful Consulting Project Coordination

We always incorporate consulting assignments into holistic project management. This guarantees effective time management, transparency over costs and the highest level of consulting quality at every stage of the project.

The project management matrix below is an example showing what the typical course of a consulting project with us looks like.
