Planning service
How the planning service works
IMD can support the planning stage of a cloud implementation project by supporting our customers with the identification, elicitation and analysis of requirements. IMD will engage with stakeholders to establish their needs and wants in order to help prioritisation and the identification of trade space. In addition, IMD can strengthen a Business Case by helping our customer thoroughly understand the intended benefits, the impacts and relationships across the organisation and, the scope of the project.
Planning service works with specific services


Training service provided
How the training service works
As part of the SE and EA service, IMD can provide tailored SE and EA training for individuals and teams in conjunction with coaching and mentoring by our deployed consultants, or as a standalone offering through our talent management capabilities. The accredited training delivered by IMD offers courses such as ITIL, APMG International Managing Benefits or PRINCE2 (and other) certifications. This ensures 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

Support levels
For each engagement through GCloud, 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.
