How the planning service works
Moving to Cloud-based technologies can be a significant technical and business change which requires effective project and programme management controls to be in place. Effective project and programme management can assure the smooth transition to or between Cloud-based service offerings, whilst minimising business risk and protecting benefits realisation. Actica is able to deploy best practice in programme and project management (PRINCE2, MSP, APMP, MoP, MoB, MoR, Agile PM & PgM, DSDM, SAFe), benefits management, risk management, scheduling, quality and assurance, stakeholder and communications management, programme definition and project initiation. We will work with your organisation to develop, define and implement suitable governance, controls and management and reporting regimes in order to initiate and plan your digital project or programme. We have particular expertise in digital transformation in the public sector, and combine this with practical experience of helping projects and programmes in the planning phase to meet the requirements of the Digital Services Standard and Technology Code of Practice.
