$1B Security Software firm has been transforming its business model. Migrating product platform, corporate applications and subscription clients onto AWS and Azure cloud. This client had no prior internal PMO or central project management delivery function. The Engineering and IT Departments have historically been opposed to project management resources and any type of PMO governance. This historically has created inefficiency in the hands of the engineers, IT and communication to executive leadership teams.
Longford was selected and successfully engaged to oversee the PMO intake, estimating, scoping and migration execution. Also, serving as the Partnership PMO for all product and IT enterprise projects. Longford has also supported two acquisition integration initiatives. Creating a mature template and approach for future business acquisitions.
Longford and client partnership:
This 3+ year ongoing PMO partnership with Longford has created a predictable and mature project delivery model for the client. Adding accelerated tools and project playbooks have been developed to help with the sustainability and matrix reporting capabilities. Both the Engineering and IT departments are now delivering 92% of projects on time and on budget. Before this partnership the performance was 22% to target.
