Planning
Planning service Yes
How the planning service works We are tool agnostic and have expertise in a number of planning tools including Microsoft Project (MSP), Microsoft Project Enterprise (MSPe) and Primavera (P6), and are able to advise you on the tool(s) most appropriate to your business needs and cloud environment. We also undertake rigorous approaches to defining plans using a fusion of systems-based approaches and recognised techniques such as PRINCE2 Product-Based Planning. We also adopt the disciplines of schedule management to agile environments, using task-led stacks and iterative steps within a wider schedule-based framework for governance and stakeholder communication. We develop planning processes during the concept phase to ensure that there is a defined strategy including a Programme/Project Management Plan (PMP) and Schedule Management Plan (SMP) to define the baseline description of how the initiative will be organised, executed, and subjected to regular reviews. - Establish key milestones - Establish contractual commitments - Establish schedule - Establish requirements for schedule reviews - Review schedule quality and provide recommendations for enhancement - Develop and agree organisation and work breakdown structures - Agree baselines - Establish and implement a Schedule Management Plan providing: - Scheduling strategy, management roles and responsibilities, - Management processes, - Planning calendar and reporting drumbeat.
