Programme, Project Management and PMO

Project Management is the discipline of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources to achieve specific goals.  A project is a temporary endeavor with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.  The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities to produce products or services.  In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.

The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the preconceived constraints.  The primary constraints are scope, time, quality and budget.  The secondary —and more ambitious— challenge is to optimize the allocation of necessary inputs and integrate them to meet pre-defined objectives.

At Rangewave we have a highly regarded Programme and Project Management.  It is deep in our DNA and considered our very core competency.  Programme and Project Managers are handpicked for their experience, qualifications, (including PMBOK, ITIL and PRINCE), and a positive attitude to complete all projects successfully.

Implementation Projects

It is clear we are a project orientated consultancy, all our team members are familiar with a project environment, the SAP implementation methodology, a detailed project plan and are task and deliverables driven.

At Rangewave we are also quite prepared to work on a fixed price basis for well-defined and specified projects.  This can only be done at the stage when the information we have allows us detailed project estimating, (scope, effort and price), with a high level of accuracy.  A detailed specification of requirements, project charter, project plan, team structure, signed off functional scope etc. is completed prior to committing to a fixed price.

Subject Matter Expertise

In addition to the implementation of SAP and associated technology we have the capability to provide subject matter expertise in the areas of Supply Chain and Master Data Management.  We have a number of large complex project assignments requiring a combination of industry knowledge and subject matter expertise in the areas of SAP SRM, MDM and EWM.
