World Class Project Management
Agile or Waterfall, we’ve been managing SDLC IT projects across a multitude of government and blue-chip clients for many years.
We always tailor our proven project management approach to fit your business culture and budget. Our projects are well defined and designed to run smooth, fast and very efficiently, so you get the best value for money.
Having the best developers is only one part of our success, having world-class Technical Project Management and Business Analysis skills guarantees you successful results.
We are well known for extremely fast delivery of work items. We attribute this strength to working within an ‘Agile’ model, that we have streamlined further. We buck the trend a lot by having daily technical scrums and very short sprints in order to keep a steady stream of improvements being received by our clients. Our clients are engaged very early in the development process and share in the excitement of a new solution every step of the way to completion.
We are very experienced with delivering results within a traditional ‘waterfall’ model. While we prefer the Agile model for iterative development and speed, the waterfall model is still used in many of our clients and we adjust our approach to fit.
PMI is the world’s leading membership association for the project management profession, with more than half a million members and credential holders in more than 185 countries. We use many of these principles and more in the running of our projects.
