Maintaining a good grip on your IT project management ensures that you remain in control of what is required to continue to operate safely and protect yourself against future threats.
The world is changing rapidly, and the development of technology is exponential. The speed at which the technology landscape changes means that your products and services have a shorter life cycle and require a fast ‘time-to-market’. It can also force your organization to start new digitization projects more often. However, as the number of projects increases and these projects become more complex, the risk of failures, delays and missed deadlines increases.
Structure of IT project planning
Projects can be executed using several different methods. The traditional “Waterfall” method was often used in the past, but in recent years we have seen methods such as “Agile” and “DevOps” gaining in popularity. Regardless of the chosen method, projects often have a fixed (basic) structure. The distinction between methods often lies more in their speed, the application of shorter delivery cycles and an increase in (interim) delivery times.
Successful IT Projects with Crowe Peak
Crowe Peak IT Advisory helps organizations with the successful delivery of IT projects. We do this by:
- Fulfilling the IT project management role (interim)
- Advising at strategic level on drawing up, prioritizing and monitoring your IT project calendar (“portfolio management”).
Our pragmatic approach focuses on two important elements: process and product. With these elements well mapped out, we deliver direction to the project.
Enabling organizations to successfully initiate, execute, and deliver projects requires people with solid project management skills. These skills are not always available. In some cases, organizations may lack the right people or have the available capacity. Our project management approach consistently monitors the intended result of your project as it is carried out and delivered. In addition, we monitor whether the set goals and the desired benefits are still in line with the project portfolio and business strategy. This approach (result and strategy) is a proven condition for the success of a project.
