Project management

Personnel

Our project managers know the entire process leading to implementation of the given software solution, from the very beginning to deployment of the solution in routine operation. They have been trained in various roles and have an understanding of the needs of all participating parties. Thanks to this, they can effectively do everything that is expected of them:

  • realistically plan projects;
  • assemble and manage project teams;
  • coordinate activities with the customer and with other suppliers;
  • identify risks;
  • formulate a backup plan;
  • flexibly respond to the customer's changing needs (especially in the case of longer projects).

 

Processes

The work processes are always to a significant extent subordinate to the nature of the project and requirements as well as to the customer's practices and corporate culture, deadlines and other important aspects of the project. Our project managers strive to remain in contact with all members of the project team on our side as well as on the side of the customer.

If the customer does not prefer a different process, our project manager will - in the case of a larger project - formulate a project schedule as early as at the time when the project focus is defined and will later update the schedule as needed.

We recommend that a communication plan should be formulated at the beginning of the project in order to ensure the awareness of all project participants when resolving any possible questions or difficulties in the interest of maintaining the efficiency of the process.

A basic element consists in regularly scheduled coordination meetings, status meetings and meetings with the customer's steering committee for informing both sides on the status of preparations within the project.

Our project manager monitors compliance with the project budget and assesses potential risks of cost overruns.

Another task of the project manager is to ensure theoptimal composition of the project team on our side and the possibility of substitution (in the case of projects with a longer duration).

Best practices

We proceed especially from RUP (Rational Unified Process) or PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) recommendations, while adapting to any methodology preferred by the customer (in this respect, we have a wealth of experience gained from projects for customers - companies - bound to maintaining company standards).

Tools

We utilise particularly the MS Office and MS Project applications for planning and MS Project Server for monitoring the use of our capacities.
