Agile project Management
Project Management is the critical element needed to consistently deliver predictable results to achieve customer satisfaction and improve the bottom line. It allows an organization to shift focus from ‘firefighting’ to ‘operating according to plan’. Project management is most effective when it is embedded in a culture of project-friendly business practices. This culture is embodied in an organization’s policies, practices, procedures and routines.
The way an organization and its management define, structure and act towards projects has an important effect on the success or failure of those projects, and consequently the success or failure of the organization.
VisionSoft’s Project Management Practice is focused on business results. It provides the framework and methodology to meet your project requirements within your business culture efficiently, cost-effectively, on time, and within budget. Project Management is a highly collaborative process that facilitates the development, validation and ‘blueprinting’ of a vision and corresponding strategies, methods and tools to ‘projectize’ an organization.
