IT Project and Program Management Services

 

Modern IT systems have to cover a large variety of technical and professional requirements because the ever-increasing interconnection of IT systems leads to a high degree of complexity in development and operation. At the same time, the professional and technical demands placed upon the quality of IT systems are growing as well. For this reason, various specialized divisions and experts are integrated into development projects. As a result, the organizational structure of IT projects is larger and more complex – with increasing demands upon IT project management.

A decisive factor in the success of IT projects, beyond professional know-how und technological competence, is above all the capacity for efficient planning and steering. This calls for professional processes and methods in IT project management – the reason why we have established IT project and Program management as an independent area of expertise in our organization.

Project Audit And Quality Management

IT projects are not without risks, especially those that are extensive and critical in terms of time or business. There are many reasons to carry out a project audit – for example, if you want to change your service provider or want to know:

  • whether your project management is professionally organized
  • whether you can expect high-quality results
  • whether the project is efficient and meeting the targeted schedule

 

Beyond analyses and project audits, we ensure that in the handling of your projects all requirements of quality management are fulfilled from the beginning. In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of services for quality assurance:

  • Project auditing
  • Identification and analysis of project risks
  • Evaluation of process quality, for example according to the reference models of Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), COBIT or standards (ISO 21500, and ISO 10006).
  • Monitoring of ongoing process improvement
  • Review of development outcomes
  • Establishment of professional IT project management

Implementation And Operation Of Project Management Offices

At a certain level of complexity, implementing, establishing and enforcing all concepts and methods in the context of IT project management cannot be performed by the project manager alone. Particularly for large projects and extensive programs, it is advisable and practical to establish a professional Project Management Office (PMO). A PMO ensures process consistency and enables the project manager to concentrate on the steering of the project or program.

The set-up of a Project Management Office enables the establishment of continuous processes, methods and tools at the cross-organizational level. By systematic training, coaching and regular exchange of experience, staff members are prepared for managing IT projects.

Our range of services in the Project Management Office area:

  • Project Governance (setting structures and processes) ;
  • PMO for multi-project-, program-, or portfolio management
  • Introduction of consistent policies and guidelines for project execution
  • Establishment of standards for project management, e.g. PMI/PMBoK, Prince2, SCRUM, …
  • Systematic identification and analysis of risks within a project portfolio or within a multi-project-/multi-program context
  • Integration of the PMO into the organizational structure of the company
  • Training and coaching for project managers
