Kenway Enables Project Managers with PMO Creation
Kenway Consulting was asked to assist a Major Financial Institution in the creation and management of their Business Program Management Office (PMO). The sponsoring business organization recognized the importance of an Enterprise view, and needed a road map to aggregate the needs and requirements of multiple stakeholders. Kenway provided capacity to manage and broker the relationship between the business and technology organizations.
What We Delivered
The creation of the PMO enabled the project managers within the initiative to focus on their respective projects while Kenway put a program-wide management of issues, risks and project plans in place. Included in this project was the configuration and deployment of a documentation repository, leveraging Microsoft SharePoint Team Services, to house the standard project management deliverables created by Kenway.
In addition to the traditional PMO work, Kenway Consulting orchestrated several strategic initiatives on behalf of the client, including a Financial Analysis on the development vendor selection for the first release of the initiative, a Communication Plan used for enterprise updates, and a Data Strategy for maintenance and upkeep of client demographics.
Upon the successful implementation of the first release of the Initiative, Kenway Consulting was asked to implement and manage the functional support processes and procedures and perform the business requirements analysis phase for the second release of the initiative. When the time came for the client to staff the full project team for the second release of the enterprise wide initiative, Kenway Consulting again provided the capacity to lead the Program Management Office.
Additionally, Kenway Consulting was asked to create and lead the Quality Assurance efforts of the project. Best Practices were put into place to ensure quality within all phases of the Software Development Life Cycle. Kenway delivered a best practices solution to ensure the quality standards of the client were achieved.
