Project & Program Management
Project and program environments are becoming increasingly complex. Often different stakeholders are involved and operated within a chain. An important development is therefore that projects and programs need to be managed from different angles and that the IT professional also has a task as an environment and expectation manager. Project leaders, project managers and program managers with substantive knowledge and expertise of the field of the project or program and an organisation-wide view are therefore increasingly often a hard requirement than an advantage.
While previously a PRINCE2 certificate was the decisive factor in knowledge and skills, PRINCE2 is now a minimally required tool. As an early adopter, CIMSOLUTIONS has anticipated and responded to these changing demands since its establishment. Through organization-wide knowledge sharing, continuous internal and external education and training we ensure that our project leaders, project managers, program managers and project support officers possess the right competencies to turn their projects into a success. For example, people management skills and organizational sensitivity have become indispensable assets.
Based on the scope of the assignment, such as supporting a tender, custom development, or (infrastructure) implementations or transitions, our professionals have a PRINCE2 Practitioner certificate and a completed IPMA program, supplemented with Agile methodologies, Lean IT, continuous delivery and DevOps. This enables them to operate within the current Governance, business standards and standards in the fields of Project and Lifecycle Management, Team Management, Delivery and Engineering.
Furthermore, our project managers regularly share their knowledge in the Special Interest Group Project Management. The participants give each other presentations and organize workshops. External speakers are also regularly invited to share the latest technological and methodological knowledge. Our project managers frequently publish and give guest lectures at colleges, universities and at our own CIMposia for clients.
In addition to supplying the right candidates, CIMSOLUTIONS unburdens its clients by fully taking over the Project Implementation and Risk Management. Based on the needs and the specific situation at the client’s, we customize the approach and, besides PRINCE2 for project management, offer an Agile method or LEAN or a combination of both for project implementation, noting that the addition of another standard/model for project implementation in the future based on new needs and insights always remains an option. Due to our transparent and phased approach, our clients get immediate insight into the progress and have confidence in the quality of the project results.
