Project Management Methodology Implementation
Do you have a methodology & Is your methodology agile enough to meet business demands?
ACTS can develop methodology and process to meet your organizations needs by taking into account the size of your project portfolio, complexity and duration of projects/programs, and your current operational model (are you growing or are you contracting). It's important to have the right level of process, associated with the appropriate artifacts and tools, to enable your project teams to deliver. There's no need to start from scratch. We will evaluate the current state of your processes and utilization across your organization. Our expert consultants come equipped with a toolkit of processes, forms, and templates to draw from that can be used to subsidize what you already have. The key is to have the right level of process to maintain control and deliver projects in an expedient manner.
The deployment of methodology is not a one-time effort. Once you have a process and artifacts developed, they must be deployed. Different methods can be used to deploy new process and standards within an organization. Some examples are classroom training, workshops, and lunch and learns. Coaches are highly recommended to work alongside Project and Program Managers in a group setting or on a one-on-one basis to ensure that the methodology is properly put into practice. To support natural attrition within an organization, we can provide a new hire orientation process to make transitions smoother.
