PROJECT MANAGEMENT

The VD Networks Management Office (PMO) builds long-term client relationships as it develops and supports enterprise-level execution standards for all project engagements.

With expertise gained from over two decades’ worth of projects spanning a highly diverse set of clients and service offerings, VD Networks Project Managers are flexible and easily adjust to working within each stakeholder’s individual corporate culture.

At VD Networks, the PMO ensures that PMs directly collaborate and communicate with clients throughout a project’s lifecycle, while transitioning them into ongoing maintenance and support. As trusted advisors, VD Networks PMs work with C-level, director-level, and technical engineering personnel and play an integral role in securing long-term client satisfaction and retention.

VD Networks PMO sets and upholds best practice standards; the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) implementation framework is followed for every project. As part of this protocol, PMs review all scope details including deliverables, task dependencies, and prerequisites with the client prior to delivery.

The PMO’s project governance provides a clearly defined process for our PMs to use. This includes technical discipline templates along with project metrics which set the stage to ensure implementation efficiency. It also empowers PMs to perform effective planning, communicate to the project team at all times, deliver within scope, perform effective issue escalation and risk mitigation, and implement change orders as required.

The VD Networks PMO provides an ongoing relationship for clients. PMs have access to all VD Networks and Partner resources to best advise our clients. All of this ensures a seamless client engagement, whereby all project milestones are executed in a timely manner and remain within an allocated budget.

.

VD Networks follows the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) implementation framework for each of its projects. VD Networks Project Management Office (PMO) mandates its project managers (PMs) to directly collaborate with clients and effectively communicate throughout the entire project lifecycle. VD Networks PMs are expected to perform effective planning, define critical project milestones, remain within budget, perform RAID management (Risks, Assumptions, Issues, Dependencies), promote effective quality assurance, execute change orders when required, and provide project documentation.

An explicit project plan outlining initiation, progress, and completion of tasks and pertinent milestones is employed to guarantee project timelines and goals are met. Certain key goals are essential to this framework.

.

For each project, VD Networks PMs concentrate on ensuring the following global objectives:

  • Customer satisfaction
  • Project timelines are on or close to the schedule
  • All stakeholders understand the overall project goals, scope, and objectives
  • All parties understand the project success criteria
  • Effective communication between teams and the project’s executive sponsors
  • Project escalations and action items are recorded and addressed in a timely and professional manner

VD Networks' PM responsibilities and tasks include but are not limited to:

  • Project kickoff meetings
  • Ensuring compliance with a client’s preferred communications method (i.e., formal project plan, weekly status meetings, etc.)
  • Client status reporting and meeting minute reporting
  • Risk management and mitigation
  • Coordination of all required VD Networks and customer project resources
  • Handling of all required project and issue escalations
  • Efficient processing of all required project change orders
  • Certify that all project deliverables are successfully completed
  • Project completion sign-off; project closure meeting and “lessons learned” discussion with the client

Picking the proper combination of virtualization solutions is essential to ensuring the success of your overall IT technology strategy.

VD Networks maintains strategic partnerships with leading virtualization partners, including Microsoft, HPE, VMWare, Nutanix, and Citrix, among others.
