Pioneering Innovative Collaboration for Excellence

Project Management

Our Project managers have extensive real world experience in a variety of projects spanning different domains, technologies, team sizes and budgets.  We utilize established methodologies that provide effective Project Management and projects that are delivered on time and within budget.  Our process consists of five phases: Initiation, Planning, Execution, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing

Initiation determines the nature and scope of the project.  This stage will include analyzing the needs/requirements in measurable goals, review of the current operations, a financial analysis including a budget, a stakeholder analysis, including users, and support personnel for the project, the project charter including costs, tasks, deliverables, and schedule.

Planning is conducted at an appropriate level of detail. The main purpose is to plan time, cost and resources adequately to estimate the work needed and to effectively manage risk during project execution.

Execution consists of the processes used to complete the work defined in the project plan to accomplish the project's requirements. It involves coordinating people and resources, as well as integrating and performing the activities of the project in accordance with the project management plan. The deliverables are produced as outputs from the processes performed as defined in the project management plan and other frameworks that might be applicable to the type of project at hand.

Monitoring and controlling consists of those processes performed to observe project execution so that potential problems can be identified in a timely manner and corrective action can be taken, when necessary, to control the execution of the project. The key benefit is that project performance is observed and measured regularly to identify variances from the project management plan

Closing includes the formal acceptance of the project and the ending thereof. Also included in this phase is the Post Implementation Review which consists of looking at things that went well and analyzing things that went bad on the project to come up with lessons learned. This is a vital phase of the project for the project team to learn from experiences and apply to future projects.
