A study that analyzed nearly 1,500 IT projects was covered in the Harvard Business Review. The study found that the average overrun was 27%—worse, one in six projects had average cost overruns of 200% and scheduling overruns of nearly 70%.
You never have to be the one in six. You can engage Info-Matrix to manage your IT projects and to build your own, internal project management capacity.
Want Info-Matrix to manage your IT project?
Our PMP-certified professionals can manage your own IT/business team; multi-vendor undertakings; or a project you’ve retained Info-Matrix technologists to implement. We have the tools, techniques, and experience to define and control scope; identify and mitigate risk; and manage cost and timelines. Some of best-practice tools that may benefit your project include Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBoK).
Info-Matrix project managers are supported by Info-Matrix business analysts who can map your current processes to identify improvements. We can elicit, analyze, communicate, and validate functional and technical specifications to make sure that the proposed solution gets to the root of the problem you’re trying to solve.
You tell us what you need. A simple time/task schedule or a complete blueprint that you can implement yourself? We can do that. A full-time project manager to plan, coordinate, document, and report? We can do that. An entire team to help identify the business problem, develop a solution, and see the project through to completion? We can do that.
Want to build your own, internal capacity to better-manage IT projects?
Today’s ever-increasing reliance on technology, growing integration of business processes, and the pace of industry change make it virtually certain that your organization will be nearly-constantly involved in the evolution of your IT assets. Given this reality, it may make sense for you to develop your own project management expertise.
Info-Matrix has experience helping organizations design and create project management offices. We can help conduct a cost/benefit analysis to see if dedicated project management professionals would benefit you. We can develop a governance model, position descriptions, qualification levels, policies, operating frameworks and more.
