Programme and Project Management

Predictable delivery through pragmatic governance


The one component too often missing from technology projects of any size is effective governance. With the drive to deliver more, faster and for less there is often a temptation to skip the governance and control that is vital for project success.

Whether we are delivering a one-off project or a major programme of work, we apply pragmatic, right-sized governance techniques to ensure reliable delivery of our customers' business outcomes. We wrap robust and efficient control mechanisms around our projects and into our clients in a way that speeds projects and programmes up rather than slowing them down.

That means you get predictable, efficient delivery of business outcomes.  


Our PMO can assist with:

  • PMO Support capability through highly trained and efficient Project support teams
  • PMO delivered as a managed service
  • Recommendations on governance structures and roles
  • Providing a suite of project reports and templates
  • Report writing expertise and advice to Project Managers
  • Financial reporting on in-flight and pipeline projects
  • Stage gate and quality checks on all project artifacts
  • Proactive and independent advice on project health
  • Communication and Change Management plans
  • Project Manager coaching
  • Stakeholder training

Project success with effective PMO

Optimation’s project management approach aligns with the global standards captured in the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). 

Our team is skilled and certified in:

  • PMI Prince2
  • Managing Successful Programmes (MSP)
  • Agile project management methods
  • Industry-specific models such as the Telecom Delivery Operating Model (TDOM)

We take the best aspects of these commercial methodologies and balance them with a pragmatic dose of industry experience. This allows us to adapt the approach to fit the scale, complexity, and risk profile of each project and the specific outcomes required. Where it makes sense - for example, where there are higher levels of organisational complexity or large-scale business change - we apply programme and portfolio management disciplines to create a consistent approach across multiple projects and workstreams.
