Project Management

 

PMP / PMI Best Practice

Most of the staff members (including top management) are certified in Project Management. We follow Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and IBM Rational Unified Process (RUP) guidelines for project management. We promote awareness of standardized project management and software engineering processes within the company. Our recruiters have built a vast database of certified and pre-qualified PMO consultants who are available with short notice for client projects.

Project Management Methodology

VIVA’s Project Management methodology consists of the following four phases: Initiation Phase

  • Selection of team members
  • Conducting Kick-off meeting
  • Bringing Operational and IT groups up to speed
  • Planning and discussion of PMO high-level deliverables

Analysis Phase

  • Consultative analysis and assessment of current PMO set-up (“as-is” state) and development of Documents of Understanding and plans (“to-be” states)
  • Development of strategy to design performance metrics and reporting

Construction Phase

  • Identifying pilot project
  • Implementing PMO processes and metrics in the pilot project
  • Tracking and monitoring progress

Transition Phase

  • Full set-up of PMO
  • Identifying and loading projects or portfolio into the PMO
  • Training appropriate IT and business users
  • Incremental addition of portfolios and re-training
  • Continual improvement of PMO set-up
