Work at BCforward
The maturity level of an organization is critical to the successful completion of any engagement. Without proper internal and external processes and procedures, an organization cannot maximize the value brought to an engagement. The BCforward Project Management Office (PMO) is responsible for delivering robust solutions to our clients. This division is a “matrix style” group managed by both our internal Project Management Organization (PMO) and technical area practice directors. BCforward’s PMO Practice provides core PMO external and internal functions which are Project Management Consulting Services and Centralized Management of Project Delivery, facilitating internal project audit reviews, coaching and training staff, identifying and incorporating process improvements and best practices, and managing PMO library and methodologies.
Project Management Consulting Services – This aspect of the PMO works directly with our clients to provide project management assistance to supplement client staff and expertise. In addition, the PMO assists clients with managing a collection of projects as one or more inter-related portfolios. The PMO provides project managers that specialize in project portfolio management and project management. The PMO also provides project consultants that maintain subject matter expertise and leadership in their core specialty. These SME Leaders (Technical Leads, Validation Leads, etc) are technical consultants serving in a leadership role that are matrixed from our technical practices areas but are trained in leadership by the PMO. Our project consultant staff also consists of consultants with experience in xRPM and Rational Unified Process.
Centralized Management of Project Delivery – This aspect of the PMO focuses on the quality and management of client engagements and projects being delivered in our Operations and Solutions Delivery Business Unit. Client based projects that are executed on-site at BCforward are conducted in our US (Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Cleveland) or Global (St. Petersburg, Russia) Solution Centers. Projects that are executed in the US Solution Centers follow our Project Management Methodology Delivery Approach (PMM-DA).
Our PMO staffs highly experienced consultants that specialize in project management and are capable of supporting client enterprise initiatives of varying sizes and complexity. A key factor in the success of enterprise engagements is the efficiency, organization and day-to-day support of the team members by the project management office. Our consultants leverage the PMO’s expertise, project management methodology, and software development lifecycle, industry standards, and best practices to complete projects on time, in budget and within scope. BCforward Project Management services can provide support in the following aspects of project management for any engagement:
