Project Management

Project Management

When it comes to managing projects, we believe that "Successful outcomes start with envisioning and planning". All too often we see projects that haven't been properly planned out and this inevitably ends up costing the customer more money and delivery can dates slip.

At Synergise Software we use a simple management system for projects coupled with some core values that are vital to a Project's success. Risk mitigation is vital in making a project run smoothly, identifying the risks and developing a mitigation plan is vital.

Envisioning This is capturing what the customer needs delivered.   In this phase we are learning what is required, what th business rules so that we know what to plan for.
Planning  Using the results from Envisioning, a more detailed design process is undertaken to map out architecture, designs and to plan for risks.
Once planning has been completed an accurate project plan and risk mitigation strategy can be presented to give an accurate view on the project.
Development This is when the application / system and is being built.   Regular updates to the customer are recommended so they can see what is being built.
Stabilisation / Delivery The final stage - working with the customer to ensure that what has been developed works properly and more importantly meets the envisioning brief.

The above outline works well for software development is based on the Microsoft Solutions Framework.
