Technology project management

RSM’s technology specialists can help your organisation implement technology projects on time and on budget. 

Implementing technology projects is notoriously difficult. Most executives have personal experience of technology projects that failed to deliver the anticipated benefits. Technology project management is a specialist skill that many SMEs and mid-market organisations do not have in-house, or only in a limited way.

Effective technology project management begins with a clear business case and clearly defined target benefits. An agreed project governance structure is critical, with the Project Board or Steering Group playing a key role. Co-ordination between suppliers and internal staff must be smooth, open and honest. Also, dependencies on business change activities (such as training or process improvement) must be identified and managed early on.

RSM’s technology consultants are highly experienced in technology project management. Most have Prince2 or PMP certifications, and all have hands-on experience of technology project delivery.

We can provide technology project management expertise to your organisation in the following ways:

  • setting up your technology project, including business case, governance structure and project plan;
  • managing the implementation of your technology project, either on a full or part-time basis;
  • providing PMO services to support internal project teams; and
  • providing project or programme assurance services, through periodic reviews of project progress and ‘deep dive’ reviews of key areas such as data migration, testing, security or cutover planning.
