COBIT toolsets. PPM Processes. And an approach that can help you do more.

Syncomint Process Implementation provides supporting COBIT toolsets to enable managers to navigate complex factors that range from technical issues, control requirements, and business risks. And with a firm focus on PPM Processes from strategic value and impact on resources to costs and other factors, Syncomint’s approach can help organizations acquire and view vital data about all of its projects according to specific criteria, assisting them to become consciously aware of key issues associated with project formation.

Syncomint’s Eight step methodology to a successful PPM solution implementation

1. Groundwork – It is important to do an assessment of your existing environment (systems, processes, etc.) before deploying any PPM tool. This helps Syncomint understand the client needs in detail. This is where you will learn where you are and where you can go realistically. Syncomint provides best practices recommendations and business justifications to achieve executive buy-in. Next, the client will decide which recommendations to pursue. Syncomint provides a client roadmap that outlines time to deploy tools for your organization, including deployment activities, deliverables, training, and resources needed to successfully deploy in your environment.

2. Deployment planning – Syncomint works with clients to define vision, scope, roles, resources, and communication plans for your team. If the roles are not correctly defined, it is difficult to get the utmost results from software alone. This is where deployment schedules are established, milestones are agreed upon, and progress review criterions are set in place.

3. Environment specification document – Syncomint will have the Client’s IT specialists work closely with a technical specialist from the vendor team to determine where to install which software component within the tool. Syncomint will provide an Environment Specification report.

4. Usage model – A member of the Syncomint team will work with the Client to define how each identified role on your team (executive, PM, programmer, etc.) should use the tool. Work closely to design the processes and metrics in order to create a usage model design document. The design document created here becomes the foundation of the configuration activities.

5. Installation and configuration – Syncomint will install the PPM tool according to the Environment Specification document and configure it according to the Usage Model documents. Syncomint helps the Client interact with the pilot version of the configured tool to ensure needs met. This is where the adjustments should be made before a full deployment takes place.

6. Rollout – Syncomint will supply training materials during rollout. Use the vendor for some hands-on training and mentoring to ramp up quickly.

7. Tool administration – Syncomint will work closely with your system administrator, database administrator to define a roadmap for tools administration and maintenance procedure, roles and responsibilities. This roadmap should be captured in an Administration and Maintenance Plan. There should also be another meeting between your management and the vendor to discuss results of deployment, lessons learned, gaps remaining, and future direction.

8. Follow-up – Syncomint will follow up with end users after about a month or so of tools usage to get feedback on performance. This is also an opportunity to get questions answered that were not asked before.
