The implementation of a new computer system is often more about the management of people, habits and attitudes than it is about the technical infrastructure. So many projects go wrong because the impact of change is underestimated and poorly communicated.
Our role is to ensure that all those involved in implementing a new system understand the rules of the game. That there are clear objectives with milestones that the team understand. That communication is effective and those not directly involved in the implementation understand what’s going on. Above all else it’s about managing things when they go wrong. Which they will. And understanding the impact of what’s gone wrong in order that the project plan can be revised and brought back on track, or that the plan is changed to reflect reality and what the new plan will look like.
Good project managers assess risk, discuss it, mitigate it and communicate what’s on track as well as what’s not on track so they hold people to account. We have PRINCE2 qualified staff as well as project and programme management experience to help ensure you get the best possible result from your implementation.
