Planning

Planning service
Yes
How the planning service works
IMD offers services to support customers planning to implement cloud hosting or software systems and services. We provide consolidated, through-life cost, operational, technical and training support, highlighting benefits and risks, to optimise the system or service and its design, delivery and support.
We help organisations define their strategic goals, scope and vision for the service, and provide services to analyse user and business needs to develop robust User and System Requirements documentation and define future Target Operating Models. We help develop a compelling Business Case to secure funding and approval and provide the strategy to move from the current (as-is) to the future (to-be) environment. This includes, as required, a procurement strategy, benefits, risk and cost-benefit analyses and detailed, resourced and costed plans.
At the planning stage, IMD will define a Programme Mandate and Objectives and set up the PMO. We plan and define a framework within which reporting, budget control, RAIDO, benefits, communication and change will be managed consistently and robustly across the programme. We set document configuration and tranche and management control measures. The PMO will be planned to meet specific programme and customer requirements to provide maximum value to the organisation.

How the training service works
IMD puts people at the heart of transformation, particularly important when planning for, setting up and building the capability to maintain cloud systems and services. Hence, as part of our delivery, we provide informal training in the form of knowledge transfer, coaching, mentoring and upskilling. This ensures that the best practice methods applied during the delivery of our service are adopted by the customer team, so key skills and knowledge are retained following completion of the contract. We provide formal training as a separate service, delivered by accredited trainers, who are experienced practitioners in their fields. The majority of our training courses are accredited and lead to internationally recognised qualifications.

For each engagement, we provide a Technical Account Manager who will be the central customer point of contact. The Account Manager will have experience operating within the relevant field and of coordinating the delivery of similar services. This provides additional domain knowledge and support to the delivery team, a first point for escalation of issues, and added intelligence and continuity across projects and programmes. The Technical Account Manager will ensure administrative or contractual queries are actioned and resolved, including the need for any additional specialist support.
In addition, we endeavour to provide a secondary point of contact for each engagement to ensure continuity of service and support.
Depending on the particular assignment, support will be provided on-site, or remotely via email and phone, with the flexibility to arrange meetings on site or at our offices. On-site support will normally be between 8 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays. Support outside these hours can be arranged by negotiation.
