Project & Program Management
A Project & Program Management discipline is a key component to the successful implementation of company initiatives. VitalNetix supports our customers with certified and industry experienced Project Managers to support individual projects as well as small and large scale programs. Our project managers focus on the Scope, Schedule and Costs of an individual initiative to help drive a solution from the early planning stages to closure. Our program managers support customers by managing across projects, still focusing on Scope, Schedule and Costs but including the complexity of interdependencies at the business level down to the code base for efficient and effective program level delivery. A program manager is much more than a senior project manager. Our program managers have delivered many successful projects, ensuring success with the necessary program structures to support status rollups, meeting cadences, executive summaries and escalation methodologies. Many of our customers have developed a framework and approach to deliver initiatives, typically revolving around the experience of their Project Management Office and project management software such as Clarity or Microsoft Project Server. The VitalNetix team can quickly adapt to our customer’s PMO, or when requested, help develop an End-to-End PMO framework including tools, templates and best practices.
Our team can support multiple methodologies such as Waterfall, Agile or Hybrid. Agile software development methodologies continue to gain more acceptance as business leaders require more aggressive timelines. An Agile approach can lead to the development of applications quickly by iterating fast and testing frequently. However, VitalNetix believes that ignoring the traditional waterfall approach entirely is not the best approach when developing large critical systems. VitalNetix will leverage an Agile approach when feasible and include some of the key values of the traditional Waterfall to reduce risk and ensure alignment across a program. It is rare to see any approach or methodology followed without question. Most standards and disciplines are adjusted to fit the size of the initiative and the maturity of PMO.
