Trigyn’s Sustainable Development Methodology

A key challenge, when implementing or upgrading technology capabilities in developing countries, is sustainability. Without a proactive sustainability strategy, technology investments can foster long term dependence on out-of-country suppliers or outright abandonment of implemented systems due to the lack of affordable local maintenance and support. Trigyn’s Sustainable Development Methodology is a critical part of Trigyn’s approach to delivering IT services in developing countries.

The Objective: Apply the United Nations principals of Sustainable Development to project implementations in developing countries.

Trigyn’s Approach: Trigyn’s Sustainable Development methodology, to the fullest extent possible, seeks to employ project teams comprised mostly of local professionals. Project plans are written to include ongoing skills and solution training designed to foster self-sufficiency among local professionals to operate and maintain solutions post-delivery. To further enhance local capability, and to allow developing regions to retain greater economic benefit, Trigyn tries to leverage the skilled labor pool it has developed through previous implementations for similar projects in the same geographical area.

Benefits:

  • Increase employment of local professionals.
  • Enhance capabilities of local labor pool through up-skilling, mentoring and education.
  • Build competencies required to maintain and support the Technology solutions locally.
  • Maximize retention of project financial investment within the local economy.
  • Reduce overall program cost.
  • Increase return on funds invested.
  • Ensure a durable legacy for delivered IT solutions.

Outcome:Trigyn’s Sustainable Development methodology has proven to be an effective model for building a lasting economic legacy from technology investments in multiple developing countries.
