Project Management Office Services

We can help you evaluate and set up your projects

eimagine offers a variety of services including evaluation and setup of Project Management Offices (PMOs), management of development projects, as well as training in Agile project management and Team Foundation Server.

PMO Evaluation

A solid Project Management Office (PMO) can save dollars and man-hours by providing a clear road map to projects and initiatives, strategically aligning individual projects with the overall objectives of the organization, and providing clearer visibility into the various projects currently undertaken.

Agile Training

Many project managers and PMOs are interested in adopting an Agile project management methodology—a practice consistent with the principles defined in the Agile Manifesto – but struggle with applying this framework in their own organizations. eimagine’s seasoned project management professionals possess the experience and knowledge necessary for a successful Agile transformation. Learn the fundamental principles and tools of agile and how they apply to your organization through webinar or in-house sessions.

A sampling of topics include Overview of Agile and Lean Project Management, Effective Agile Requirements Gathering, Agile Team Workshops, Kanban for Agile Teams, Agile Planning and Estimating, Agile Testing, Agile Portfolio Planning and Management.

 

Learn TFS from a Project Management Perspective

Many organizations are familiar with Microsoft’s Visual Studio Team Foundation Server (TFS) from a source control perspective. At eimagine, the Team Foundation platform is not only utilized for source control, but as a collaborative space for management of various projects.
TFS is part of Microsoft’s application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions. TFS supports agile development practices, multiple IDEs and platforms locally or in the cloud, and provides the tools needed to effectively manage software development projects throughout the project lifecycle.

eimagine provides training services to teach organizations how to utilize TFS from a project management perspective. These training sessions can be in-house or through hosted webinars. Contact us to learn more.
