The diagram above represents the high-level process that a Y&L project manager would be responsible for managing during a typical development project.
Y&L Consulting follows a very structured approach to Project Management. In fact, the principals of Y&L own PMware, a project portfolio management software that is currently used by over 100 clients worldwide. We also use this software to manage our clients’ projects. Y&L maintains a staff of project managers who have experience within both waterfall and agile methodologies. Depending on how your firm prefers initiatives to be managed, we can accommodate your needs.
Our project managers are well-versed in managing full-scale initiatives, from requirement-gathering all the way through post-deployment monitoring. Project managers’ usefulness extends beyond defined projects. In fact, many of our project managers are also used by clients when performing assessments for software upgrades, transitioning manual processes to automated ones, determining potential ROI for integrating a new network system, etc.
An unbiased, third-party project manager can keep discussions on track, calm internal politics, identify bottlenecks, add structure for ideation and requirement-gathering from business and IT owners, and keep things moving forward in a well-managed and well-documented format.
