Project Management

Project Management

The “Realtime Experience” depends on the expertise of our Project Managers, and you will notice that yours will develop a shared enthusiasm for the successful completion of your project milestones. Only individuals who demonstrate this characteristic become PM’s at Realtime. Our Project Managers learn how to apply the principles of “Lean” and practice those daily. They will work with stakeholders to establish a concise and commonly understood definition of successful completion, and where it’s not clear they’ll get it clarified. You will find that they fervently communicate project status and make sure you understand where your project’s financials stand, and will work with you to identify alternatives when budgetary constraints conflict with program challenges.

Realtime has the belief that our Company’s growth is driven more by our Customer’s “wins” than by expanding project scope or by unending engagements. Development projects are hard enough as they are, with a natural tendency to run long and cost more as the details of design requirements are revealed. And so our Customers depend upon us to take on the challenge of driving to successful conclusion on a daily basis.

Phase 0: Project Definition

Most engineering projects begin with more abstract ideas of what might need to be accomplished, but still need the detailed work of defining its purpose, objectives, work scope, and timelines. Until this upfront work is done, it is impossible to estimate the total project budget, or sometimes to even justify the project altogether.

Realtime provides a phased project execution model that helps Customer’s achieve clarity of the projects objectives prior to moving on to the next phase. Typically, this starts with a “Phase 0”, or Project Definition & Plan. We will help you bring together all of technical information necessary, extract your Voice-of-the-Customer and Voice-of-the-Business requirements, identify key project risks, and then develop an integrate project plan.

This deliverable can then be used to communicate to your organization and stakeholders to not only make a reliable Go/No-Go decision, but also to execute the program.
