Our PRINCE2 certified project managers thrive on delivering complex, high value, technical computing projects. Find out more about how we approach these projects below
A PRINCE2 accredited OCF project manager is assigned to all OCF projects, including OCF on or off-site engineer activity. The project manager follows a proven methodology ensuring that the project is defined, delivered and documented ensuring customer expectations are fully understood and delivered.
The OCF project management team offers an end-to-end service, from ensuring any hardware is delivered at right time to the right location to handing over an accepted solution to the support and managed services teams.
For all major projects, the initial phase is to fully define and document the scope of the project. This takes place during a Project Definition Workshop (PDW), which is attended by the assigned OCF project manager, lead technicians and the customer account manager and is open to all stakeholders within the customers’ organisation.
The PDW allows the opportunity to fully understand and agree the technical design and project milestones. It is also when the project controls are set and agreed.
The OCF project team will ensure that the project is documented every step of the way. The project documentation usually includes, but is not limited to, a statement of work, acceptance testing plan, risk & issue log, and project plans.
The statement of work details the work to be undertaken, how changes will be controlled, and relevant terms and conditions. This provides the ‘blueprint’ for project.
The acceptance testing plan documents detail how the solution will be reviewed and measured to ensure successful delivery of the scope.
Throughout the lifecycle of the project, the OCF project manager is responsible for all communication to ensure that the customer and project teams are kept informed. The project manager owns and updates the project documentation and sets and reports on the status, as agreed in the communication plan.
Upon successful completion of the project, the OCF project manager will work closely with the customer through the closure stages. This involves delivering the project acceptance, handing over to our support teams and documenting the lessons learned.
