Business & IT Project Management
Does your organisation:
- Need to manage the relationship with the supplier under a software procurement contract?
- Have personnel reporting ongoing problems with business processes and collaborations across several business units?
- Have an unusual business project that requires extensive stakeholder inputs and analysis of requirements?
Is your organisation diverting team members from their normal duties to undertake tasks such as those above that are outside their fields of expertise?
Elkera provides professional project management and business analysis services to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to manage software procurement projects or other business change projects. Elkera helps you to solve business problems, efficiently manage projects, minimise risks and maximise project benefits.
Manage software procurements
If you have already planned your software project and are now entering the procurement process to choose a solution provider, there are many issues and risks to manage. These include: vendor capability, vendor reliability, alignment of payments with product delivery, change control, acceptance testing, deployment, ongoing product support, and your internal management of organisational change.
These issues can be complex. Usually, they require expert management. They should not be left to inexperienced personnel.
Elkera will provide an expert project manager who will guide you through the complete procurement process to avoid common pitfalls and maximise the benefits of your project.
Business process review
It can be highly wasteful and damaging to personnel well-being when there are unresolved problems with inefficient interactions or collaborations between business units.
Often, the problems cannot be addressed because business processes are poorly defined and may be completely undocumented. Without a clear definition of processes, the desired outputs and affected stakeholders, there is no basis for managers to efficiently resolve the issues.
Elkera will provide an expert business process analyst and project manager to help you define and document relevant business processes, and optimise them for more efficient interactions between personnel.
An example of this type of work is provided in the Elkera Case study – Provide Analytical Tools for a Limited Internal Business Process Review by a Not-for-Profit.
