PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Influence IT Consulting Project Management Services enable our clients to define their portfolio, align it to organisational strategies and goals, and to ensure that targeted business outcomes are achieved. No matter how large or small, simple or complex your project or organisation may be, we will design a package to help you deliver on time, on budget and to the highest predictable quality.

Influence IT Consulting Project Management Services can help clients to establish, or mature, a Project Management Office that:

  • Prioritises and aligns client initiatives (i.e. projects, programs of work, small changes, etc.) with their organisation’s over-arching strategies
  • Provides rigorous and repeatable processes that can span the entire application lifecycle
  • Provides an early warning system that flags when interventions are necessary, thereby helping manage risk more effectively
  • Provides transparency and consistency on each and every project

Just as individual Projects can vary, so do the services we can offer to our clients.

No matter what size your organisation, we’ll tailor a package to suit your needs and budget.

  • Establishing PMOs to help turn around entire organisations and help organisations plan and keep control of their Projects
