Project Management (PMBOK & Agile)
An effective PMO framework drives the control of change in an organisation. For it to be truly effective, your PMO must reflect your organisational culture and strategy. As part of our project management services, we offer a perpetually fit-for-purpose PMO tailored to your business and managed as a service by a team of specialists.
Our expert project management consultants support businesses by taking accountability for performance improvements, sharing risks on cost-efficiency and providing the capabilities and reach to match your change portfolio with your PMO strategy.
The figure below describes how Nihka’s emerging PMO model offers an effective framework when compared to traditional planning and management techniques.
Project Management Office (PMO) Setup
At Nihka, we understand that no two organisations and no two projects are the same. It is for this reason that we do not subscribe to a single project management methodology, but rather focus on managing delivery objectives in line with the unique needs and challenges of your organisation.
Nihka Change Management
Creating a sound policy is only the beginning; successful leadership requires relentless focus on implementation – Sir Michael Barber, Educationist and founder of delivery units.
While government departments thrive in policy setting, they often fall short in delivery as a result of insufficiently tracked implementations, standard bureaucratic processes, inadequate delegations and no lessons learnt.
Nihka has perfected the art of establishing and supporting government units with delivery expertise. This involves combining active involvement and proactive problem solving with effective data collective strategies to support implementation.
Methodologies successfully used for implementation include:
- PM Methodologies
- Agile Project Management
- Waterfall Project Management
- Scrum Project Management
- RAD (Rapid Applications Development)
- PRINCE2 Project Management
- Kanban Project Management
- Six Sigma Tools
- Outcome Mapping
