At ESI Convergent, we believe a lightweight approach to project management process suffices for the vast majority of IT initiatives. We endeavor to apply the right tools to inform effective decision making and to deliver high quality results, on time and on budget.
According to Info-Tech Research Group, it’s best to tailor Project Management Processes to fit the Project. Best practices aren’t always the best fit. At ESI Convergent, we define a right-sized approach to scale our project management processes to the needs of our customers. Our goal is to focus on project outcomes, not processes. After all, Project Management success doesn't equal project success.
According to the Project Management Institute (PMI), a project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result. Project management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.
The benefits of Project Management include improved visibility and control of the fundamental elements of Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Communications, and Risk.
