i-Solutions provides Impact Services in the following areas of Program / Project Management.
Project Assessment and Recovery. i-Solutions professionals can provide the hands-on project support and expertise to assess your current projects and bring them under control. In addition, we can provide training, coaching, and implementation planning to ensure your company is able to effectively manage projects going forward.
Progress, Resource, and Cost Management. The successful implementation of a business strategy or change initiative is the critical difference between business success and failure. One of the most challenging aspects of implementing business change is executing the agreed plan at the agreed cost. Too often, the management team does not have consistent visibility of current status, or accurate forecasts for project milestones. i-Solutions has developed and maintains processes and tools to help manage our clients’ projects — including resources, time lines and associated costs — from inception to successful completion. This capability reduces risks and increases the probability of on-time delivery of our clients’ projects within the established budget.
Multi-Project/Program Management. A fast paced business environment means that new opportunities present themselves to your business on a regular basis. Often, in order to capitalize on these opportunities, your organization must implement multiple projects simultaneously. Completing these projects is often critical to maintaining growth. Monitoring and managing all of these projects can be challenging, and delays can mean lost revenue. Our expertise includes managing common resources, skill sets, and dependencies across multiple projects being executed simultaneously. In addition, we have the expertise and project management tools to present combined rolled-up progress — or to drill down to specific project tasks. This capability turns project data into actionable information for the leadership team.
Planning and Detailed Scheduling. As experts in planning, scheduling, and project controls, i-Solutions professionals understand how to ensure that projects deliver required results on scope, on time, and on budget. We know that project timeline development and management is the heartbeat of any successfully delivered project. Our experts are skilled in developing “fit for purpose” schedules that align with project scope and budget, using best practices enhanced by our library of standard schedules, milestones, templates, processes, and software tools.
Project Monitoring, Measuring and Reporting. Managing a project effectively requires monitoring and measurement. i-Solutions’ project monitoring and management techniques have been developed and refined over decades of industry experience. Our expertise promotes planned, predictable and sustainable project performance. Effective reporting begins with a well-documented project scope, list of deliverables, and established roles and accountabilities. With input from team and technical leads, the scope is scheduled, resourced and budgeted. Establishing a baseline and applying active risk, issue and change management are also keys to success. i-Solutions has developed integrated tools and processes to manage projects, collecting project data from multiple sources and reporting actionable information for team members and management. Outputs include the following:
