5 Reasons Why You Should Consider a Contract Project Manager for Your Next Project

“Not another project,” you say as the words of the email drip from your head to the pit of your stomach.  You remember the last time… You thought you picked the right in-house team to manage the project. It seemed straight forward. You had good people who were top notch in IT and very specialized. You were convinced the project would be OBOSOT (On Budget, On Scope, On Time).  And by the end of the project, it was OBOSOT (Over Budget, Over Scope, Over Time). What went wrong?

I am going to suggest one simple change.  Consider a contract project manager!

4 Critical Roles Every Project Manager Must Own To Lead Successful Teams

Whether you’re operating within a DevOps, Agile, or Waterfall environment, the academic principles of project management are clear, tried, and tested.  What is hard to communicate via a textbook or lecture are the gaps that exist between real world execution and academic theory.  Over the course of a career, project managers develop the soft skills of team leadership that fill these gaps and propel their teams to success.  Beyond creating burn charts and capturing user stories, successful project managers must fill four emotionally supportive roles to ensure their teams deliver peak performance...

Taste of Afidence Published -- April

Click here to view "The Taste"

 

As another fiscal quarter closes we've continued to experience an influx of new clients that are unhappy with their current IT provider.

We've found that regardless of whether the client was dazzled by the lower rates typically found in the shop down the street or by the flashy, high-rise vendor the results have been the same -- IT torment and dollars wasted.  We also found that the service had nothing to do with the offerings or size of the company, but rather the company's quality and ethics.

Going forward, we want to share with you the top 3 things to be aware of when choosing your IT support vendor:

  1. BEWARE the "Contract".  If they are that good, why do they need a contract?
  2. BEWARE the "Kickback".  Do they receive financial incentives for recommending and selling the products they recommend to you?
  3. BEWARE the "Bait and Switch".  The guy/gal giving you the recommendation most likely won't be the one supporting you . . . if they are, who supports them when they are on vacation or out sick?

A simple way to avoid loss of time and money is to CALL Afidence today before you sign.   We have unparalleled client satisfaction and our mission is to be your trusted IT advisor and support vendor, which means we have to be better than good ALL the time!

We hope to hear from you soon . . . call Crystal at 513-234-5822, x441
