Project Management Approach

Our Approach to Project Management at
NETWORK ADVISING-U

At NETWORK ADVISING-U, our goal is to make sure our project management is effective because we know it’s crucial for getting projects done well and on time. Here’s how we do it:

  1. Clear Project Goals: We set clear and easy-to-measure goals for each project. We make sure everyone on the team knows what we’re trying to achieve.
  2. Teamwork: We put together teams with people who have different skills that match the project. We encourage everyone to work together and talk to each other.
  3. Project Requirement Document: We create a document that explains what each project is about. It includes goals, timelines, and who’s involved. 
  4. Information Security (CIA Triad): We prioritize the security of project-related information using the CIA triad principles:
    1. Confidentiality: We ensure that sensitive project information and client data are kept confidential and accessible only to authorized individuals.
    2. Integrity: We maintain the integrity of project data by preventing unauthorized alterations to project documents, codes, and records.
    3. Availability: We understand the importance of project data and resources being available when needed. We minimize downtime to ensure efficient project execution.
  5. Web Development Phases: We tailor phases from the SDLC using the Waterfall method for structured and sequential processes, and Agile which is good for flexability.
  6. Planning: We make a detailed plan for each project. It lists all the tasks, when they need to be done, and what depends on what. We use software like Trello and project manager.com to keep track of progress.
  7. Resources: We make sure everyone on the team has what they need to do their job well.
  8. Meetings: We have regular meetings to keep everyone updated and solve any problems that come up.
  9. Risk Management: We look for possible problems and come up with plans to deal with them. We also have backup plans for unexpected issues.
  10. Talking to Clients: We talk to our clients a lot to make sure we’re doing what they want. We want to make sure we understand what they need.
  11. Quality Assurance Check: We test everything to make sure it works well and is of good quality.
  12. Keeping Records: We keep good records of what we do, like design plans, code, and any changes we make. This will help us keep track of everything.
  13. Finishing a Project: When we finish a project, we make sure our client has everything they need and that everything went well.
  14. Client Satisfaction: We ask our clients how they feel about our work after we’re done. This feedback is used to improve the next project. 
  15. Training and Lessons learned: We keep lessons learned with each new project. 
  16. Money Management: We watch how much money we spend on each project to make sure we stay on budget.

What is the CIA triad

The CIA triad (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability) is a fundamental concept in information security and is typically applied to the protection of data and information systems. While it’s not directly related to project management, By incorporating the principles of the CIA triad into our project management processes, we not only deliver successful projects but also prioritize the security and reliability of project-related information.

  • Confidentiality: We take measures to ensure that sensitive project information and client data are kept confidential. Access to such information is restricted only to authorized team members and clients.

  • Integrity: Maintaining the integrity of project data is crucial. We implement controls to prevent unauthorized alterations to project documents, code, and records, ensuring that the information remains accurate and trustworthy.

  • Availability: We understand the importance of project data and resources being available when needed. We work to minimize downtime, ensuring that our teams can access the tools and information necessary to complete projects efficiently.

Why a Lesson Learned?

At NETWORK ADVISING-U applying lessons learned from past projects is integral to enhancing our future projects. By evaluating what worked well and what didn’t, we continuously refine our project management processes. This ensures more efficient workflows, better risk management, and heightened client satisfaction. Lessons guide us in anticipating challenges, streamlining communication, and avoiding past mistakes. We also adapt to evolving industry trends, transfer knowledge within our team, and incorporate valuable client feedback. Ultimately, lessons learned lead to more successful, efficient, and client-focused project outcomes.
