At Innovation IT we provide services to our clients to manage the reliably delivery of projects consisting of multiple workstreams relating to requirements management, service improvement, change, transition, transformation, test management and a range of technology and digital solutions. Our resources include programme directors, programme managers, project managers and a PMO service.
Our PMO service standardizes and follows programme and project management policies, processes and methods. Our clients find this a source for guidance, documentation, and metrics related to the practices involved in managing and implementing projects. The service gets involved in project-related tasks and follows up on project activities through to completion. The office reports on project activities, problems and requirements to executive management as a strategic tool in keeping implementers and decision makers moving toward consistent, business or mission-focused goals and objectives.
Project management principles, practices and processes are based on PRINCE2 and MSP (Managing Successful Programmes) methodologies and for technology related projects Agile and SDLC. There is also consistency with the requirements related to ITIL, quality standards (for example ISO9000) and governance frameworks such as COBIT.
We also advise clients as to how a project management office (PMO) is designed and staffed for maximum effectiveness, which depends on a variety of organizational factors, including targeted goals, traditional strengths and cultural imperatives. We consider three basic organizational styles for a project management office. The project repository model, for example, empowers distributed business-centric project ownership, or enterprises with weak central governance. The coach model assumes a willingness to share some project management practices across business functions and uses the project office to coordinate the communication. The enterprise project management office model assumes a governance process that involves the project office in all projects, regardless of size, allowing it to assess scope, allocate resources and verify time, budget, risk and impact assumptions before the project is undertaken.
