So what exactly do we do?
We provide practical and sensible end to end project management services that enable us to successfully deliver projects from inception through to operational acceptance and closure We continually strive to keep the project management as simple and as practical as possible and not over complicate things, (whilst still applying best project management practice)
We can complete project health checks on “problem” projects, (and other projects for that matter). This service would typically only require a few days of effort (dependent on size and complexity of the project) to complete a full review of the project, identify areas of concern with recommendations on how to improve / move it forward. It would look at all the key areas of the project.
The project health check work would typically operate as a fixed price
We are experienced at writing tenders and can produce detailed tender specifications with detailed schedules of prices to enable a full and clear breakdown of all costs, (capital and on-going revenue). We can also help with the tender assessment and evaluation through to tender award. We will work with your business analysts to understand the requirements and build these into the tender. We will also work very closely with your procurement team to ensure that due process is followed for the tendering process and is fully compliant.
The tendering work can be completed as a fixed price piece of work or on a day rate
We can provide ad hoc project management support for a wide range of activities, e.g. provision of temporary cover for unexpected staff absences / leave, support at critical project times, (e.g. implementation and go live stage) and general assistance. This can just be a few days to enable you to provide essential cover to keep your projects moving forward.
We can also help with creation of standard templates, business cases, plans, PIDS, RAID logs, etc. and provide mentoring and general advice / guidance on Project Management.
This can be arranged as one off orders as the need arises or we can set up a simple number of pre-set days, (e.g. 4/5/10 days) which can be drawn down at any time as and when required.
Finally, we can work with our partner companies to provide access to a range of resources, including Programme Managers, PMO staff, Business Analysts, Test Managers / Analysts, Technical Architects, Server Technicians, Web Design, etc. For larger programmes, we can effectively provide a ready made team with the right skills and experience and who perhaps most importantly, have worked together before.
