Programme and Project Management

Project Management as a Service

I.T. Alliance has delivered pools of project managers previously to Tier 1 services organisations. Each service is tailored to the specific needs of the client but the foundation of all is a unique ability to mix both employees and contingent workers in a flexible model which matches the variable demands of the customer. These project management services generally have some measure of effectiveness and always have a regular review to monitor the overall performance of the service.

In addition to its permanent staff I.T. Alliance has a strong network of known associates and wherever possible re-uses these staff in the same clients to increase familiarity and reduce the time required for effective delivery.

Project Management Office

Project Management Offices take many forms and I.T. Alliance has delivered or consulted on a variety of PMO’s to all of its Tier 1 organisations in some form or other. These have been implemented across whole portfolios of programmes or down to individual projects. In each case I.T. Alliance brings its depth of knowledge in both the theory and practice of delivering projects to ensure an appropriate PMO will be implemented to meet the requirement.
