Project Management

"The art of directing and coordinating human and material resources throughout the life of a project by using modern management techniques to achieve predetermined objectives of scope, cost, time, quality and participant satisfaction."

We believe that this is a key ingredient of successful projects. That is to say, a successful project is one in which everyone feels equally good about it - or, in a political environment, about equally disappointed (according to your point of view!). Project management and technology management are two separate areas of study. The first will stand you in good stead working on most projects in most domains most of the time. However, the second is what you need to know on a specific project to be able to understand what is, or should be, going on! Project Management is a discipline. Those who do not exercise the principles of that discipline will see their projects struggle and often collapse. Therefore, the effectiveness of project management is as spotty as the variations in formality.

Managing such projects requires expert skills in managing budgets, people, and processes. It requires someone who is not only proficient in project management, but also someone who understands the highly complex, project-driven information technology (IT) industry. Some of the core aspects of Project Management we excel in are:

  • Proposal and RFP Preparation

  • Pre-Sales Presentation

  • Estimation and Budget Control

  • Scheduling and Resourcing

  • Project Planning and Reporting

  • Software and Web Development Process

  • Change Management

  • Asset Management

  • Motivation and Conflict Resolution

  • Risk Assessment and Mitigation

  • Requirement Definition

  • Functional Specification

  • Vendor and Partner Management

  • Software Training

  • Sign-Off Cycles
