Does your SMB or Enterprise Business need assistance with IT Project Delivery?

Sometimes large businesses have small tech teams with great technicians, but deadlines are still hard to establish.  Allow streamlined IT Project Management principles to mitigate the the unforeseen mishaps of the technical mindset.

Any enterprise business that holds a technical staff onsite can become upset when technical projects take longer than initially anticipated.  Management points the fingers at tech and tech complains back in the same fashion.  Sometimes there is just a communication gap that establishes a large role in ruining deadlines, and oftentimes increasing cost and delaying results.  The problem in certain cases is the lack of prioritization and the emphasis on strict deadlines.  Since technical staff usually think in a reactive mindset, they second-guess or minimize the importance to adhere to prioritization and deadlines.  Additionally, many techs don’t view managers as “on the same level.”

IT PROJECT MANAGEMENT

IT Project Management is the process of planning, organizing, motivating and controlling resources, procedures and protocols to achieve specific goals. Projects are temporary one-time endeavors designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end usually time-constrained and often constrained by funding and/or deliverables. Projects are undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value to the company/organization. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are systematic, repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent work activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different and requires unique technical skills and the development of management strategies surrounding a project.

Not using a standard approach is the biggest mistake a business can make on an IT project. It makes it possible for a company/organization to measure the success of its projects and to determine which processes and methodologies are working and which ones need improvement. Program investment and execution economics drive client demand for delivery efficiency and quality deliverables.
