Project Management

Project and Project portfolios management


The promoters of Naxos Information technology have extensive experience in Project Management. We recognize that good Project management is one of the critical success factors for your projects. Project management relies on methodology, tools and above all, people.

Methodology and standards

back to top
Methodology and tools are your choice. We are selling neither of them. To be most effective your organization must implement a common project management process. You can build one yourself. Or you can adopt (or have adopted) an approach based on one of some established standard:

  • Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), the standard of the Project Management Institute (PMI).
  • PRINCE2®, owned by the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) of the UK government
  • Tenstep a methodology derived from PMBOK® but detailing the 'body of knowledge' in ten practical processes based on the waterfall model
  • ISO100006:2003, Quality management ? Guidelines to quality in project management. Can be combined with PMBOK® for more focus on quality issues that can impact projects. Possible base for auditing the project process.
  • Capability Maturity Model Integration(CMMI) a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes.
  • Agile specifically addresses software development project. It departs from traditional 'command-and-control' and waterfall model approach. But with different naming, it can be regarded as compatible with PMBOK® as explained by Project management professional (PMP) Michele Sliger. Agile Project Management complements ideally Extreme Programming.

 

Tools

Naxos Information Technology is agnostic regarding Project management tools as well. We are therefore in better position to provide independent advices.

Many Project Management tools exist with same or different scope, objective and underlying PM methodology. They support at least three core functions: Time management, Resources management and cost management.

Our consultants can adapt to your tools of choice whatever they are:
