Planning service
How the planning service works
P3M is critical to the success of any cloud-based project. IMD will provide experienced practitioners, trained in adaptive and agile methodologies, to support the implementation stage, so that the organisation has a clear understanding of the agreed approach to delivery. All risks, assumptions, issues, dependencies and opportunities will be appropriately understood and managed/agreed with key stakeholders who will be using the new service.
Planning service works with specific services


Training service provided
How the training service works
As part of the P3M capability, we are able to provide tailored project management training for individuals and teams to obtain PRINCE2, APMP, MSP (and other) 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

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
IMD’s P3M capability will ensure that service continuity is maintained throughout any cloud setup and migration project. Implementing controlled P3M processes and procedures will mitigate the probability of system failure, and or downtime. By controlling key procedures and processes, it is possible to closely monitor any activity that could lead to unexpected disruption within the project.
Setup or migration service is for specific cloud services

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
IMD’s P3M capability provides organisations with quality assurance on the accuracy of the forecasted project or programme plan, 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. We will develop performance indicators based on service delivery to assess how the service is performing against the intended, or desired standard.

Support levels
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.
