Project management

Scenario: You are responsible for your company’s IT system; you have received the news that your recent project has a glitch in it and will not be up and running as projected.  What should be your next step?

You have one of two choices.  You either stay the course by plugging ahead as your current team makes new projections they are unable to meet or bring in a source with a proven track record of managing and bringing projects in on time.

Believe it or not, many companies continue to rely on their in-house team to figure out the problem and only turn to outside sources as a last resort.  Initially this may seem to be the most cost effective avenue to take since the in-house team is being paid with or without the outside help, but the cost of downtime, delays, and employee stress must also be factored in.

A good project management team knows there will be hiccups in every upgrade but will give an honest assessment of the problem without causing company-wide panic, will lay out strategic steps to correct the problem, and will  make sure only what needs to be known is known by those who need to know.  Good project management includes a proven methodology designed to bring projects in on time and on budget.

 Intelligent iT will provide a Statement of Work (SOW) which establishes milestones and keep you apprised of the status of your project.  We recognize that it is vital to have constant communications during critical phases of each project. A status update will include an overview of the project to date, deliverables, open issues for management attention, activities completed to date, and a schedule of activities to be completed before the next status update.

Good project management knows that everything won’t always go smoothly, but knows how to smooth out the hiccups to allay panic, keep on time, and on budget.
