Welcome to the first blog from the Revolution IT Project Management team for 2012. The team has been working extremely hard during the last quarter of 2011, and throughout the first quarter of 2012, to establish a strong practice.
We have strengthened our existing client relationships and engagements, while pursuing new opportunities and creating an awareness of our Project Management offerings in the marketplace. We continue to expand our team, and look forward to an exciting period of growth over the next 12 months.
I am proud to share our achievements to date, and allow some insight into the Project Management Practice.
Revolution IT Project Management Framework, Methodology & Assessment
The team has developed a comprehensive Project Management Framework and Methodology that brings together over 100 years of Project Management experience. This includes processes, standard templates and tools that enable our consultants to “hit the road running” when we commence a client engagement. This work provides a foundation for successful delivery of various client initiatives to ensure that our Project and Program Managers reach targeted business outcomes to our clients.
Another area we have been developing is an Assessment process, whereby we can provide an independent assessment of an organisation’s Project Management maturity (at an individual project level or program level). This assessment process can also be configured to assess the organisation’s Project Management Office capability.
The team will continue to refine and develop these processes, templates and tools to ensure we provide quality solutions to our clients/partners.
Revolution IT Project Management Practice goes International!!!
We are very excited to announce that the Project Management Practice has just secured our first Project Management engagement in Singapore. We will have a fulltime Revolution IT Project Manager in Singapore. This appointment now takes our team to 5 Project Management consultants (3 in Melbourne, 1 in Sydney and 1 in Singapore). Our Melbourne team includes Lachlan James, Mohan Gunatilake and Paul Larn, while we have David Lynch in Sydney and now, Sinclair Hurtis in Singapore.
The Secrets to Successful Project Management
The PM Practice is currently preparing to conduct a seminar presentation titled “The Secrets to Successful Project Management”. This initiative is being jointly sponsored by HP. The seminar will be presented in Canberra and Sydney to a wide range of clients, and potential clients from both the government and private sectors. Keynote speakers will be PM Practice Principal, Gennadiy Belobrov, and PPM tools Practice Principal, Gary Rubinstein.
This seminar will focus upon the following topics:
· Projects – why do they fail?
· Delivering Successful Projects – what does this actually mean?
· Secrets to mitigating the top six reasons for project failure
· The importance of Governance and Assessment
· Successfully delivering business benefits through quality Project Management
· Unlocking the value of Project and Portfolio Management software in your organisation
The objective is to demonstrate the offerings of the PM Practice and generate some momentum with our clients to show we can add value to their organisations through Project & Portfolio Management services.
When Quality Matters
We all know Revolution IT’s strength is our people. To quote our website, “Revolution IT employees are industry leaders who constantly strive to improve methodology, tools and techniques to maximise the return on our client’s investment.”
The Project Management Practice is focused on aligning with the other Practices within the company – Requirements Management/BA and QA/Testing, and ensuring that we work together to strengthen the overall offerings for our clients.
Until next time, I wish you all success, happiness and all the best.
