Project Management Services
DProject management is vital for your organization to succeed. You need project managers who are capable of allocating resources, managing tasks, and supervising your projects through to completion. But if you’re suffering from a lack of project managers, or if your project management team is undertrained or unskilled, your entire organization could be at risk.
With the help of our project management services, we can give your organization the project managers and project management training it needs to thrive.
The Goals of Project Management
At DEV.co, we think of successful project management as unfolding with five main goals:
Finish on time
Adhering to a deadline sometimes means the difference between total success and total failure. Even in less extreme circumstances, your ability to hit a deadline has a massive impact on client trust. It’s imperative you’re able to finish your projects on time
Stay within budget
Of course, you’ll also have to stay within budget. When projects spiral out of control, demanding more resources and further costs, their profitability is completely jeopardized. Successful project management also means staying well within your allotted budget, or even falling below projected costs
Meet the project requirements.
Each project should come with its own list of requirements and goals; sometimes that means digging to figure out exactly what the client wants (or what your company needs). In any case, all those core requirements should be met, or should only be compromised to serve a higher goal
Keep customers happy
If you finish on time, on budget, and meet the project requirements in full, you should end up with happy customers no matter what. But it’s still important to communicate with clients along the way, and work with them to make sure they stay involved in the process.
Keep workers happy
Additionally, you should strive to keep morale high among your employees, contractors, and vendors. An unhappy team will lead to an inferior product, and possibly future performance issues.
How a Project Management Consultant Can Help
How can a project management consultant improve your project management approach?:
For some clients, this means directly providing senior project managers who can see your projects through to completion. You provide the projects, and we provide the experts who can get those projects done, on time and under budget.
For other clients, that means providing your existing project managers with the tools they need for success, including:
Training and workshopping.
Good project managers have years of training and experience in the field. At DEV.co, we’ll work with your project managers to teach them the fundamentals of project management with realistic scenarios and workshops
Past project analysisn
Chances are, you’ve seen many projects go wrong, with budgeting issues, delivery delays, and other problems. We’ll take a deep, analytic dive to figure out why these projects went wrong, so you can manage future projects better.
Ongoing education and support
After our initial consultations, we’ll provide your project managers with ongoing education and support, giving them further training, answering questions, and supporting your business’s latest projects.
