The role of project management is critical to the success of any venture. At Stoneridge Software, we follow Microsoft’s Sure Step implementation framework and provide our own best practices from years of support and implementation experience.
As veterans of Microsoft support, the Stoneridge Software team has seen many projects struggle when the designed solutions would’ve succeeded with proper planning, staffing and the right implementation approach. We’ve achieved 100% delivery on our own customer projects and observed lessons from other failed or unstable implementations. With our breadth of knowledge and depth of experience, Stoneridge Software is able to circumvent common missteps and lead your project through to realization.
The statistics on implementation failures are a brutal indication that the importance of project management shouldn’t be taken lightly. Project management keeps your implementation organized and prioritized, minimizes scope creep, keeps the project moving, boosts morale and identifies and communicates risks. Investing in a partner with a proven track record for project management, and a clear plan for fruition, gets you a giant step closer to a successful end-result.
Stoneridge Software Project Management Requires Good Planning
Good planning is vital in laying the groundwork for your project’s success. We feel strongly about the work that leads up to the Kickoff Meeting, which we’ve termed the Planning Phase. The Stoneridge Planning Phase includes: the Project Plan, the Project Charter and the Kickoff Meeting.
The project charter, a key foundation for any implementation, is a high-level view of the project plan and is the basis for the kickoff meeting.
