The OSCRE Approach
The 4 phases in the OSCRE Methodology are deliberately aligned with the typical phases in a systems strategy and implementation project. Systems integration firms, consultants and project teams should find this to be familiar territory.  Companies implementing the OSCRE Standards have found it relatively easy to combine these stages into their own project management methodology to leverage the best of both.
