Project Management

It is well understood that over 50% of IT projects fail as a direct result of poor project management practices. That is why on every O8 project we have a Project Manager to better facilitate, communicate and guarantee success.

With an O8 technical PM on the job, problems are dealt with quickly - from identifying when a developer needs help to make sure that we meet the expectations of our client partners throughout the project life-cycle. This assures that the project’s budget is always aligned to the highest priority issues.

What Will a Project Manager Do for Your Next Project?

Their job starts with assembling a great team with the skills needed to match the best solutions to a particular project brief. An O8 PM makes certain that the team has what they need to perform their best on behalf of the client's goals. But there this more. A Project Manager:

  • Resources projects with skills needed through the evolving project lifecycle
  • Translates client requests into actionable tasks
  • Protects developer focus
  • Monitors the scope of work and budget to fulfill (and hopefully exceed) the client's expectations
  • Identifies gaps in information that puts projects at risk
