Project Management

BrightLogix provides many IT services to its clients, such as Application Development, Website Design, Project Management and IT Infrastructure Consulting.

Our mission is to provide or discover efficient, effective, financially feasible and reliable technology solutions that fully meet the business objectives of our clients.

Our approach is simple, because we encourage open communication at all times. We will discuss client objectives, assess pros and cons and make appropriate recommendations. We strive to analyze our clients' software and/or IT infrastructure and either migrate, extend or maintain it in order to address business-critical needs, optimize business processes and maximum returns on IT investments. We work closely with our clients to define the roadmap that will ensure their key initiatives and deliverables are successfully implemented.

Project management consists of initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and completing a set of objectives. A project has been successfully implemented when the ultimate result meets the initial objectives, is completed within the allotted amount of time, and has been completed on or under budget. BrightLogix has the expertise to accomplish these tasks. All IT projects are constrained by scope, time and cost. We make sure that all three constraints are managed simultaneously and stay in equilibrium, avoiding the pitfalls of projects heading in the wrong directions.

  • Initiation Phase - In the initial phase of any project, the objectives, scope and ultimate deliverables are defined. We research the problem, investigate alternative solutions, identify risks involved, determine estimated costs, benefits and needed resources, and submit a recommended solution.
  • Planning Phase - This phase consists of designing plans to help visualize the timeline, costs and resources needed to execute and complete the project. There are many different types of plans that can be created, depending on the scope of the project. All projects will have a master Project Plan though. The Project Plan defines specific deliverables, target deadlines for these deliverables and resources allocated to these deliverables. Another possible plan implemented very often is the Resource Plan, used to determine roles and responsibilities, the number of people designated to these roles and responsibilities, types and quantities of equipment and materials needed, along with any other required resources. Yet another plan used on almost all projects is the Financial Plan to manage costs associated with labor, equipment and materials. There are many other types of plans frequently used as well, and BrightLogix will discuss them with you at the onset of the project.
  • Execution Phase - People and resources are interconnected in this phase to physically perform the activities prescribed in the Planning Phase, subject to the associated costs and deadlines. Thorough testing is completed within this phase as well. Deliverables are provided as defined in the Project Plan.
  • Monitoring Phase - The Monitoring Phase is done in conjunction with and after the Execution Phase. One aspect of monitoring is to make sure the project stays within budget and is being completed in the allotted time span. This cannot be accomplished if we wait until after the Execution Phase is completed. This phase must be done asynchronously along with the Execution Phase. However, other aspects of this phase consist of monitoring how the final deliverables are actually being used once delivered. Even after we have monitored all aspects of the Planning Phase, ensuring that the initial objectives are being met on a timely basis and within budget, it is possible that the end users are not using the deliverables as initially intended. This will be determined within the Monitoring Phase.
  • Completion Phase - The final phase of the project consists of formal acceptance, contract closure and delivery of any other necessary items, such as source code for a software project.

Regardless of the type of project, we are certain that we can assist with the implementation by using our highly successful management techniques.
