fedstar Solution:

After conducting an assessment of existing levels of project management maturity and competency, the FedStar team converted their findings into actionable tasks designed to manage supply, demand and output. We customized a project management methodology to match our client’s culture that is comprised of both traditional project management and agile project management methodologies. This included the development and implementation of a standard process to document and collect project initiatives across all lines of business. Innovative web-based tools were created to:

  • Capture New Standardized Concept Documentation
  • Apply a Resource Matrix Scorecard for Each Project
  • Enable Project Summary Reporting

This provided Release Management Summary Reporting for Senior Management consumption.
