Project Management

The Technology Garage Project Management Services

Isn’t project management just putting tasks, dates and names into Microsoft Project and creating a pretty Gantt chart? It can be. But it is important to note that 62% of all IT projects fail so maybe, just maybe, there is a little bit more to it than that.

Project Management is a discipline that incorporates technical knowledge plus a management skill-set coupled with a political demeanor. This is not an easy balance to achieve but it is necessary in order to provide the correct solution that is on-time and on-budget.

Adopting the correct project management methodology is instrumental in developing the appropriate solution based on the constraints of the project. There is no shortage of methodologies but we focus on using one of the following:

Infrastructure and Non-Software Development Projects
Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBoK)
Software and Website Projects
Traditional or Waterfall
Iterative (RUP, RAD, Time-box Development)
Agile (SCRUM)

As you know, there are many different types of projects and with each one of these projects there can be a different type of project management methodology or even a combination of methodologies.

Our job at The Technology Garage is to know the different methodologies and through requirements gathering techniques discover the correct project methodology to use, use that methodology and delivery the right product.

Call us or email us today to discuss your project or project related needs.
