Why Project Management Matters

This is just another example of the iTech Difference.  Having great technical resources is just the start.  Someone has to juggle and keep all the balls in the air to ensure that we are meeting the expectations of the customer.  Project Managers are not those people who just add more meetings to your calendar.  Okay, maybe we are sometimes, but there is usually a good reason for it. In addition, the Project Manager will keep the communications between the parties moving.

Project management is important to keep accountability visible to all involved parties.  Many of our client’s projects have lots and I mean lots (!) of moving components.  Rather than having all these necessary steps floating in someone’s head or scribbled down on a to-do list, having a well formulated and composed project plan with an assigned project manager is critical to have all these steps documented.  A project plan provides a 360-degree view of the flow of the project.  It is checks and balances per se. Project managers are a cognitive gear moving (the) project along for both the customer and the technician. While delays or unforeseen circumstances occur, (project managers) work hard to ensure that the project stays on track.

Having a well-formulated project plan is a critical piece for having successful projects especially for hardware installs and migrations.  

 

Now, that’s not to say the project plan is the end-all, be-all to ensure a 100% success rate. We’re in IT. We all know that things can go wrong no matter how well of a plan there is.

My point is, being organized, is key to the most successful project possible both for you, our customer, and us, your business partner.   When you see that email come in or caller ID pop up from me or one of my (project manager) co-workers, know that we are here for you, to help you, and the success of your company.  We are another resource you can reach out to for answers.  If we don’t know, we will find out. There is a brilliant team here at iTech backing everyone up for the success of our clients.
