Program and Project Management Services
RheinBrücke has a team of experienced Program and Project Managers who have helped many global clients maximize their return of investment (ROI) and optimize the total cost of ownership (TCO) of their IT investments. Our Program/Project Managers come equipped with the right fit of cultural awareness, management, as well as technical skills that are required to run medium to large scale IT Programs and Projects.
At the initial stages of an IT project, it is important for an enterprise to select a partner that can meet project timelines, execute within a tight budget and deliver solutions with a high level of quality, without any business disruptions. Such an endeavour is also a significant business change management project with an impact on the future of your enterprise.
An enterprise requires a trusted advisor who advises the program sponsor and related corporate executives throughout the life of your IT project. Each Program Manager at RheinBrücke, has on an average, over 15 years of experience as a leader or project manager, and each of our Project Managers, have 8 years of experience in managing implementation projects.
RheinBrücke provides leadership and expert advice related to the technology, processes, methodology and resources, needed for successful implementation of an IT solution.
A few key areas where we provide our guidance:
Operational Project Management including blueprint, realization, testing, training, cutover, go-live and support handover
PMI, Prince2, PMBoK, ITIL, COBIT, GAMP5, ASAP (Which industry standard fits your business?)
From our experience after many projects, we can confidently state that there is no “one size fits all” solution. We try to bring together the above guidance areas, in a way that helps your enterprise achieve its bottom-line objectives. We also define the appropriate governance model and the required implementation approach and support needed for the IT solutions you want to deploy.
How does RheinBrücke provide a tailored solution that fits your organisational needs?
The most critical aspect of providing a “best-fit” solution is to have a team that understands your industry domain, IT landscape and business needs. As an example, if you are operating in a regulated environment like Pharma, Chemical, or in the Food Industry, RheinBrücke has a team of experts, who have handled global ERP programs in such industries and who will assist you with their technical knowledge and relevant industry experience.
We will look at your industry, your organisation, your processes and your intentions in terms of projects or operations. This helps us derive a methodology that fits you best; but at the same time remain as close to industry standards as possible.
Do you have challenges in your on-going project?
Is your IT operation not delivering as expected?
If your answer is in the affirmative, then it is time to ask for a second opinion to analyze the root cause of your problem. RheinBrücke supports you in finding an answer to these questions by executing an audit based approach, which will be adjusted to your business environment. Our project audit involves validating your project in terms of project management, business requirements and various aspects of the implementation of the project.
A project management audit comprises of an examination of your organisation, the processes and products of the project and portfolio management.
RheinBrücke reviews a project’s organisation, terms of reference, specifications, strategic goals, plans, controls and project management processes as well as the results of project teams. In-house guidelines and specifications, statutory regulations as well as the best practice standards set by project management frameworks such as PRINCE2 or PMI, are used as assessment criteria. Project management audits assess whether your project or portfolio management process is rigorous in terms of managing project activities, ensuring that the delivery of project objectives is well within time and budget requirements, and the quality of projects is achieved. Apart from audits for effectiveness and efficiency, compliance with statutory, regulatory and corporate guidelines, is also audited.
Objectives of a particular project audit reflect the risks and content of the respective audit areas within the purview of the “project audit”. We also combine project audits with audits of areas external to the actual project audit, like procurement or financial audits.
