Our projects are as diverse as our customers themselves. To maintain full control of even complex projects and successfully implement them on time and on budget, our qualified project managers search for the best ways to meet the project requirements. In doing so, their key focus is always on the benefits to our customers. We support projects of all sizes – including projects with total volumes in the double-digit millions.
According to current studies, only about a quarter of all software projects are successfully completed and around half of all projects exceed the planned budget and/or fail to meet the original deadline. A quarter of all planned software projects are even prematurely cancelled. It is for this reason that we employ experts in risk and escalation management. At the end of every project, we analytically and constructively review the project workflow and answer questions such as ‘What lessons have been learned?’ and ‘What would we do differently from the outset on the next project of this kind?’. Only through such measures can we ensure the successful completion of around 2,000 IT projects a year.
Project managers are the linchpin of healthy project structures and successful project completion. The project progression is largely dependent on the project manager’s social, organisational and methodical skills. Such people are all-rounders in the everyday project business: they organise, coordinate and communicate. As well as reaching agreements with the customer, they ensure compliance with timescales and budgets. They are responsible for on-time deliveries to customers and manage internal work processes. They not only require professional expertise and excellent organisational and communication skills but must also be target-oriented and able to cope under pressure.
Our project managers have the necessary expertise for all the project interfaces they implement for individual customers. They regularly attend training courses to keep their knowledge up to date. Most of our project management employees are PMI and/or Prince2-certified. They also acquire further qualifications through their involvement in project manager communities within the company and local PMI groups, among other activities. This knowledge sharing between experts not only makes it possible to expand on expertise at an international level but also to select the right approach for individual project requirements and more quickly identify aspects that pose a risk to projects.
