Project Management Adds Value to Operational IT Departments

The project management office, simply put, works. That isn't to say that it's easy or always produces the results you expect, but having a project management office in place is a great way to stay ahead of the curve. This article by Dmitri Ivanenko discusses a particular process known as “steady state transfer”, allowing the project team an opportunity to check all processes and elements: This validation step — to ensure that the system processes are well mapped between various support departments — adds value to the operations teams. The validation step is done during project execution using the steady state transfer process — and without generating special projects. This validation step in the project management practice guarantees process interface manuals are updated with any changes to the processes and the test results. This idea of continual QC and validation is a practical and successful way to eliminate the potential problems that come with “loose” management of projects.
