Project management and its key responsibilities to plan, document, manage, and track projects are critical to the successful completion of all projects. To assist in this effort, several documents and processes exist. TIBS utilizes the industry standards Project Management Process which is based on PRINCE2 in conjunction with other industry best practices from multiple methodologies such as RUP (Rational Unified Process) and XP (eXtreme Programming), and information collected in TIBS’s own project management experience as the base for capturing and providing information to clients.
The life cycle model to execute various projects has evolved over the period of time through various projects executed by TIBS. Following diagram represents this life cycle.
During the implementation time of the agreed scope, there is always a chance that either party, the client or TIBS, might require a change to be done. The process to deal with this eventuality shall be as follow:
Risks exist in all projects. It is management’s responsibility to identify as many risks as possible and devise a mitigation plan appropriate to mitigate negative ramifications to projects. Critical data related to each risk is contained in this document to further aid management in its effort to identify and mitigate risk.
Our Project Manager would be using a template document to identify, track, and manage risks associated with the project. The risks and its probability along with the contingency plan for each risk would be identified and would be communicated via the kickoff meeting.
Project communication is critical to the completion and satisfaction of the project stakeholder’s expectations. Each project will require a variety of media to ensure that all project members and stakeholders receive accurate, timely, and successful communication about the project.
The client can choose to communicate with TIBS via Mail, Telephone, Fax, Email, Instant Messengers or Web-conferencing. In the kick off meeting, we would be finalising on the communication medium and also introducing the Program Manager exposing the contact details of the team.
