|How the planning service works||
We can provide a full range of Project and Programme planning and Business Services including Change Management and Business Analysis. We have run a significant number of sophisticated and complex projects and programmes, including multi-million pound Cloud infrastructure development and migration.
The project management service adheres to industry IT standards such as Prince2, APM and ITIL to manage projects and changes. This aligns with a rigorous risk management commercial process.
Project services can work with technical teams from other vendors, or customer sites or our own security cleared specialists.
Where appropriate, FCO Services teams can be augmented by security cleared resources consisting of contracted and consultative resources from partner organisations.
