What benefits will we bring to your organisation


We guarantee it’ll cost you more to rectify the issues you’ll have without an IT Project Manager. Here are a few benefits we instantly bring to your organisation.

Improvement on Productivity, Reduces Costs and Workload

The ultimate goal of project management and planning is efficiency. You want to do as much as possible in as little time as possible.

An RSS project manager will help your organisation create an optimised methodology.

Once we’ve created processes, templates, and procedures, you’ll be able to reuse them with every project! This will  automatically mitigate risks and improve your efficiency.
You’re very welcome 🙂

We do this by:

  • Creating a detailed project plan that contains:
    information we have received from the 3rd party suppliers, workstream leads and other stakeholders, resources, a work breakdown structure, and a timeline with milestones.
  • Break down the project into tasks and clearly define
    task owners, task dependencies, due dates, and resources.
  • Using Gantt charts to monitor individual team members’ workloads and ensure no one is heading for a breakdown!
  • Keeping the project team, supplier and top management in
    the loop, by agreeing on check-in points where we will provide a full status update on the progress.
  • Creating a change policy before starting the project. If the project grows in scope or stakeholders want to make changes, make sure you reference the policy to assess if it’s viable and if you’re risking going over budget or being late.
  • Deciding on the Project Methodology, using Agile we can try a Kanban or Scrum board in Jira or DevOps for project tracking.
  • Getting the team’s feedback on your project and task plans, make sure they can always access the project plan, as well as update it. We consider using a project management tool to improve transparency. We work to your budget.

Improves Collaboration

When everything related to a project is structured and team members know exactly what they need to be doing at any given time, we find it much easier to manage them.

We do this by:

  • By using PM tools to keep everyone on the same page.
    For example, we like to use a Microsoft Project. Everyone will have immediate access to tasks and task details, and they won’t have to waste time looking for information.
  • Defining roles clearly and accurately. When we delegate tasks, we make sure the task owners understand their responsibilities. Check in daily with them to offer help or feedback, and make sure they’re staying on track.
  • Understanding the stakeholders and creating communication plans. Firstly, we have to understand your team and what drives them. Then, we analyse clients and top management. Create a communication plan for every stakeholder group so no one’s left in the dark.

Improves Team Satisfaction

Let’s be real: we are the project manager. Which means we are the ones responsible for keeping everyone happy.. Now, this can be a tricky thing to do. Also, personally getting a therapist certainly helps!

But with a little project management magic added to the mix, we will help you see how easy it can be to meet the team's expectations.

We do this by:

  • Understanding the project team expectations and communicating clearly. In the initiation phase, we make sure all stakeholders are clear about project objectives and their own expectations. Once we understand their expectations, we structure clear deliverables and get their approval. (tick, tick tick)
  • Preparing the necessary documentation: Project Initiation Document / Project Business Case, Project
    Charter, RAID and Change Policy are some of the most important documents to ensure project governance.
  • Monitoring risks and preparing a plan for mitigating them. We assess the IT project clearly after creating a work breakdown structure. We ask ourselves (And the team) Are we likely to go over budget? Do we think we’ll have to make changes to the scope? We understand the
    risks instead of ignoring them.

Help with Problem Resolution

There are always problems in projects. (*sigh) After all, there are a lot of moving parts involved. However, when using a project management methodology, we always know exactly how to approach a problem.

A structured way of organising work helps us nip problems in the bud or notice them before they wreak havoc on our projects!

We do this by:

  • Establishing a risk management process.
  • By noting every change and problem in your change/issue log.
  • Creating communication plans for every stakeholder group, and stick to them.
  • Updating the project and task plans with every new accepted change to understand how they’ll reflect on the entirety of the project.

Project Methodologies

We know our stuff especially when it comes to project methodology, our PM team specialise in the following...


Agile is a more flexible approach, with each phase tackling every task in shorter repeated cycles. That’s why it’s perfect for tracking software development projects. Depending on your project we can create a Kanban or Scrum board. To do this we use one of the many project management tools available, such as; Atlassian - Jira/Confluence, Azure DevOps, Monday.com, Trello.

Waterfall Methodology

The waterfall methodology emphasises completing tasks sequentially and logically. Tasks are completed in a specific order, and team members don’t return to a previous task after completing what came before.
Easy peasy!

The systematic approach of the waterfall model is highly efficient for planning and scheduling a project and helping team members get a better understanding of the project scope and the tasks involved - We do love a task based plan, follow the list and all will be well.

Sometimes it’s better to take what we need from both Agile & Waterfall methodology, when we do this, it gives us a hybrid approach. Where we combine different aspects of Waterfall and Agile methodologies to craft a process that truly fits your team and projects.

Which is very popular nowadays!

Project Governance

Help with Problem Resolution

Project governance defines everyone's roles and responsibilities on a project. Effective governance is an important aspect of the management of any project and refers to the processes and strategies that our PMs might use to communicate roles and responsibilities to team members.

Governance in project management covers:

  • Information:
    the method used to share information with team members
  • Structure:
    the organisation of the project team and the company it works for
  • People:
    the key employees working on a project and their individual goals
  • Documentation:
    Business Case, Project Initiation Document, RAID Log, Project Plan
