Project and Program Management
Perlinski & Company has a history of on-time and on-budget delivery of local projects and global programs. Throughout the 1990’s we invested heavily in developing proprietary project management overlays that are harmonious with all current project management methodologies. Comments from project managers who we have trained in our methods usually echo one veteran’s remark that “I’ve never felt so totally in control of a project before.”
Quite simply, we work with you to ensure that you are doing the right projects with measurable results to support the business. CIOs typically control large budgets and are the first to be scrutinized when capital is tight and cuts are required. We work with the CIO’s organization to integrate with the business in a closed loop process so that collaboration replaces finger pointing.
We can support the CIO directly through direct development or refinement of various key strategies:
A single version of the truth for everyone in the organization, especially your executive team is the Holy Grail. But finding the right data, the right analysis and the right (and appropriate) presentation can be a daunting task. Most likely, your staff does not do this work frequently and your technology provider doesn’t know your business. Perlinski & Company can help you realize the vision by providing the in depth skills required for success.
ERP Upgrade, Migration or Integration
This is one of the toughest projects to tackle and realize success. When you have been through dozens of these projects, you can easily see the mistakes and pitfalls. Perlinski & Company has been called for in-flight project assurance & rescue but we would rather continue our success in full lifecycle program management and on-time and on-budget delivery for your project. We would like to assist you in supplementing your team in the areas of management, process (re)design, process integration, controls and data integrity.
RFP Process & Requirements Definition
The IT Organization typically develops or assists in developing the greatest number of Requests For Proposal in the company. Perlinski & Company can assist in two ways. First, we have experience with a large number of prime vendors. We know the issues that could cause your projects to have less than the desired results. Second, knowing what to exclude from an RFP is as valuable as knowing what to include…and what you include needs to be accurate.
Cost Analysis and Management
Internal IT costs are always concern and identifying pockets of cost take out is a difficult job that’s rarely done internally with the same rigor that an unbiased party uses. Additionally, if Total Cost of Ownership is not in your calculations, we can help you better understand your real costs.
