Project Life Cycle Management

Our Service

To consistently deliver success in a growing business means having a reliable, repeatable method of selecting, setting up, implementing and handing over the projects that deliver new products and services to its customers. At some point the old, informal ways of doing things won’t work any more.

Whether the client already has a project life cycle that needs reviewing/refreshing, or is starting with the proverbial blank piece of paper, the project management specialists at Digital Works Group can provide an end-to-end project process audit and improvement service, highly tailored to what will bring most value to the individual business.

We do this by working hand-in-hand with our clients every step of the way, delivered via a proven systematic framework:

Our Proven Methodology Framework

Audit

Through a combination of interview, observation, sample project auditing and benchmarking, we ascertain the project maturity level of the organisation – covering project governance/strategy as well as project delivery – and provide tailored recommendations for improvement.

Design

Based on industry best practice and internal engagement we define a robust and repeatable project life cycle framework, with clear roles and responsibilities, to meet the needs of the particular client.

Implement

Taking the project life cycle off the whiteboard and into reality: we support the client in communicating the results to all users and stakeholders, and provide training, tools, techniques and templates that deliver results quickly.

Handover

Effectively embedding the improved practices into the organisation, we identify and coach the user champions who will take ownership going forward, and propose a method of evolving the project life cycle into the future.

This framework is flexibly structured to allow clients to select the breadth and depth of the insight required, to meet their budget and needs.
