Partnering to Reduce Risk and Accelerate Development
This white paper shows that when system integrators partner with a trusted and proven solution vendor, they are freed from the time commitment and burden of trying to complete every development stage themselves. As a result, they are in a better position to keep projects on spec, on budget and on time.
Every program is assigned a Program Manager who is responsible for program performance. The Program Manager has direct access to the highest levels of company management, including the General Manager. The Program Manager acts as the focal point for interfacing with the customer and facilitates team communication.
Our highly responsive organizational structure provides for close management of all project activities and agile decision making. This structure enables us to react quickly to changes or problems and ensures that upper management is fully aware of key project activities. This is accomplished through both formal and informal processes. Our team approach ensures that project team members have full authority to accomplish their tasks. It also ensures that the project team interacts with senior company management on a daily basis. This provides an elevated level of communication and visibility not found in larger organizations. Additionally, it enables team members to better leverage the wealth of technical and business experience of our senior managers.
