A PMO FOR RESEARCH PROJECTS

FULLY CUSTOMISED PMO

A PMO CONFIGURED TO CLIENT SPECIFICATIONS

Project Management Office as a Service (PMOaaS)

Project Management Office as a Service is an approach to stay in control of the project road-map execution, and it’s costs.

Some PMO as a Service companies employ a methodology that aims to support the existing project delivery standards within a business and try to close potential process gaps on a per-hour basis. This can work well but it can still leave room for unpredictability of PMO costs. We take a different approach, offering a variety of service levels that can be applied to each  individual project. These are then charged on a per project, per day basis. This methodology provides predictable cost projections.

We can also provide PMO solutions that are fully customised to a client’s requirements, with service levels that can include offerings from our Portfolio & Project Engagement Service (PPES) that provides Demand Management, Project Prioritisation and Resource Management.

 

We are a “Turn Key” Service:

  • We can stand a PMO up with our service package offerings within 48 hours.
  • The client does not have to provide seating/desk space because we can work almost entirely from remote (UK and Netherlands) locations. If we need a location close to a client then we will find it.
  • We bring all our own hardware and software.
  • We have software partners with whom we can resell software to our own clients at preferential rates and service support. Our software partners are always happy to work with us and our clients to optimise software features.
  • The client does not have to run a bench of staff, that is our job. Our specialist IoT and Industry 4.0 recruiting partners are always ready to fill resourcing gaps as we or our clients need.
  • Cyber Security is in our blood. We are UK Government CyberEssentials and ISO 27001 certified. NJMC is a member of Den Haag Cyber Security Delta in the Netherlands.

RESEARCH

Governance

•         Quality – Project Establishment – Charter, scope, finance.

•         Project Gating – Start Up (ORR – Operational Readiness Review).

•         Project Gating – Start-up, Execution (PIR – Post Implementation Review).

•         Scope management: Tracking the distinction between outputs and outcomes.

•         E-Research – Management & integration

•         Data Life Cycle – effective working with data across the research programme life cycle

•         Continuity – in the commercial world we would call this Business Continuity, the ability to provide core knowledge even as staffing shifts and flows at an increasing pace.

Schedule Management

In traditional project management the approach taken to planning would to try and plan as much of the project at the start as possible.  However, in a research environment this is much more difficult as the project will evolve significantly as the research progresses.  One approach to managing this is to develop a rolling wave plan, though it is by no means the only solution. We strongly advocate the use of a work breakdown structure (WBS).

CUSTOM PMO

Our packages can handle most programme/project needs but we recognise that often something a little more special, requires something more nuanced:

  • IT projects
  • IT transformation Programmes
  • Industry 4.0 / 4IR
  • Robotics
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Smart-City
  • AgriTech
  • FinTech

Customise via CCR

NJMC can customise any of our packages to suite a client’s particular requirements. We achieve this through applying a Client Change Request to that package that which most closely matches the requirement. This is the most cost effective method for our clients.

 

Customise via CSR

We can also create a complete PMO solution from scratch to meet a client’s requirements. This is initiated via a Client Scope Request which ensures that we capture the precise requirement and deliver a solution in a cost effive and time effecient manner.
