IMD GROUP LTD
|How the planning service works||
Through our maturity assessment service offering IMD works with customers in order to establish their P3M and project controls capability, as a precursor to embarking on delivery and/or transition projects. This facilitates the planning of cloud hosting or cloud software implementation by factoring in the capacity of the customer team. Equally, existing projects that are experiencing challenges to delivery can benefit from both forensic and forward looking maturity assessment, in order to identify and mitigate issues impacting project performance.
In both instances the planning of implementation is enhanced by recognising the strengths and weaknesses within the project/function/organisation, allowing this to be accounted for within the scheduled transition. Furthermore, shortfalls in the people, process and tools can be addressed by including capability enhancement activities within the plan.
|Planning service works with specific services||No|
|Training service provided||Yes|
|How the training service works||As part of the Maturity Assessment service, we are able to provide tailored training for individuals and teams to obtain PRINCE2, APMP, MSP, AGILE, ITIL, Management of Risk, cyber and information security, IT governance (and other) courses and certifications, ensuring that the best practice methods applied during the delivery of our service are adopted by staff, with key skills and knowledge being retained following the completion of the contract.|
|Training is tied to specific services||No|
Setup and migration
|Setup or migration service available||Yes|
|How the setup or migration service works||IMD’s Maturity Assessment service can be used to ensure that service continuity is maintained throughout any cloud setup and migration project. By implementing controlled project management processes and procedures, the probability of system failure and/or downtime can be mitigated. Controlling key procedures and processes makes it is possible to closely monitor any activity that could lead to unexpected disruption within the project. The P3M and Project Controls Maturity assessments supplement this offering by establishing the strengths and weaknesses within the project/functional teams, and the associated threats and opportunities to the delivery of the migration.|
|Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services||No|
Quality assurance and performance testing
|Quality assurance and performance testing service||Yes|
|How the quality assurance and performance testing works||
IMD’s Maturity Assessment service provides organisations with quality assurance, on the accuracy of the forecasted project or programme plans, associated with the delivery of cloud services, throughout the service lifespan. We assess the intended scope of the service and interrogate the planned schedule estimates provided by service providers, to validate the accuracy of existing forward estimates for the delivery of the service. Within the project & programme management service, we are also able to develop performance indicators based on service delivery, to assess how the service is performing against the intended, or desired standard.
Our Maturity Assessment service offering compliments this by providing an independent assessment of the project/organisational level quality management arrangements. This can include an assessment of readiness for ISO9001 accreditation and the establishment of a plan to achieve this objective.
|Ongoing support service||No|
|Service constraints||None specific to this service.|
|Email or online ticketing support||No|
|Phone support availability||9 to 5 (UK time), Monday to Friday|
|Web chat support||No|
For each engagement through GCloud 11, you will be provided with an IMD Account Manager who will be your central point of contact throughout the delivery of services. Where possible, we aim to provide you with an Account Manager who has experience operating within the relevant field associated with the engagement to coordinate the delivery of similar services.
In addition to the Account Manager, we endeavour to provide you with an additional layer of Account Support in the form of a secondary point of contact for each engagement. In this way, we mitigate the likelihood of having a single point of failure, and have mechanisms in place to maintain continuity of service.
Support will be provided remotely via email and phone for the most part, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices when needed. On site support can be offered during the working week where requests are made prior to proposals being submitted / individual call-off contracts agreed.
Your Account Management and Support resources are typically integrated into the delivery team and so costs are included within the proposal for each engagement.
