Corporations use and are highly dependent on Project Management. For many corporations, especially those that
develop, market, and support external products with a defined customer bases, the entire success or failure of their enterprise
may be highly dependent on the consistent, successful execution of projects.
Not all projects are the same. So, to develop a set of rules (methods) for project management, we must realize that
these rules must be adaptable for all types of projects and for all types of system developers and product groups. Additionally,
different system development techniques will sometimes require different sets of rules for managing the resulting development
activities. For example, a standalone- PC client application product requires less detailed management control than a workstation
product integrating other applications and running in a large distributed networked environment. It is important to note that
the Project Management Life Cycle (PMLC) and Product Life Cycle (PLC) drive repositories of reusable methods that can be selected
and integrated to meet the demands of projects varying in size and complexity. Please reference the Heinsights
Context for Project Management to see our perspective on the integration of the product, project management and systems development life cycles.
Knowing the pitfalls and having the experience to overcome them, Heinsights offers project management services to companies that are starting new project offices (and need
project management practices) or want to assess projects that are experiencing difficulties – we make recommendations
for improvement and help implement these recommendations by direct involvement with your project team.
We offer the following project management services:
IT Projects Execution Service –
we team with your project people and help you execute your critical projects and programs. We can take the responsibility
of directly managing your projects or assist you as a mentor on your projects during some or all project phases. We can use
your PMO practices or provide our own. We can help you perform the following types of projects:
Service – we help you assess troubled projects and make recommendations for project turnaround. We
compare current project status against expected business and technical results and in the process look at all project planning
instruments (e.g., business plans, product plans, Project Charter, configuration management, risk management, QA plans, etc.)
and status of execution (e.g., project deliverables, resource utilization, costs, schedules, risks and issues, and processes
and tools used). We will provide you a report of our findings, including recommendations moving forward. If desired, we will
assist you as mentors in your project turnaround.
Project Management Best Practices Service– we help you assess current project planning, execution & control,
and project closure processes and tools. We will make recommendations for improvement, implement the processes and tools,
or assist as mentors as you implement them. Processes can include project definition, resource management, costing, scheduling,
risk management, configuration management, status and issues management, client management, contractor management, measurement
and project reporting, and more.
Project Management Training Service – we assist you in planning and executing all project team training needs, including new development
methods, standards, development and QA tools, operating environments, languages, and more. See the IT Education and Mentoring web page for more details on available training.
