Our experience specifying, running and managing projects means that we are ideally placed to work with you to turn your business imperatives and specific goals into project initiation documents and work packages; then help you ensure the work gets shared out and managed to completion.
project planning, kick-off and management
Though we can work within your established project framework should you use one, we operate a streamlined version of PRINCE2 to manage projects, phases and work packages. This cut-down approach also fits well with other approaches like Agile if you use them.
Our approach is to have enough process and documentation to keep progress visible and controlled, but keep things simple enough to allow for reacting to situations and changing needs.
putting people at the centre of progress
Clarity and communication are key to making sure the results match the requirements. We work in a collaborative style, solving the inevitable challenges by bringing people together.
examples of our project work
- Migrated an SME design agency’s IT and digital infrastructure from traditional designs to new, flexible, virtualised designs to provide greater resiliency, protection and availability for their digital information assets. Multi-year programme, phased deliveries, requirements analysis, solution architecture, product/provider selection, process change, project management and user engagement.
- Project management of IT infrastructure upgrades in a police force, focused on implementing new management tools to radically reduce times to deploy patches, upgrades, applications, etc. Multi-week, short-sharp project to deploy proof of concept, and after proving, live pilot deployment to build upon.
- Project initiation, management and handover for global healthcare software provider, discovering, documenting, analysing and consolidating workloads into a new internal cloud platform for resiliency and business continuity improvements. Multi-month project, across several departments at a time of great change and a mixture of growth and shrinkage in various teams. Got project started, rolling and stable in order to hand off to long term project manager for “the long tail” of migrations.
- Short project to review key operational processes for a boutique agri-chem consultancy with a European footprint through employees and associates. Collaborative white-boarding, discussion and ideas-generation sessions; over a few days.
