Successful IT projects begin with solid program/project management.  CipherSync uses experienced program/project managers on all it’s engagements to ensure quality deliverables that are on time on budget.

Portfolio Prioritization

Portfolio Management Helps Define and Deliver Business Value
CipherSync’s Portfolio Management practice is based upon an integrated set of business processes that systematically select, align and manage investments. Portfolio Management empowers senior decision makers by giving them a clear view of the organization.  By detailing the value of their existing and proposed IT investments—both tangible, like hardware spending and less-tangible, like staffing quality.  This process enables your organization to make the best investment choices.

Beyond evaluating the financial return of investments, CipherSync assesses corporate risk and alignment with overall business strategy.  This ensures decision-makers understand the full value of investments.

Program/Project Management

Client Challenges

The challenge is to link organizational strategy to successful, consistent, predictable project completion...

Delivering results on time and within budget requires a rare blend of leadership, task visualization, and attention to detail. The best managers apply their instincts and experience to predict and control the future. Finding such managers can be difficult, particularly in an environment where rapidly evolving technologies and fierce competition are forcing businesses to react quickly. Critical projects require immediate results.  Sometimes even having the right manager is not enough. Saddled with the wrong work structure, the best of managers can find a project spinning rapidly out of control. For each type of project, success depends on a balanced mix of experience, skill, leadership, and structure. Project managers from CipherSync combine all of these elements. They know how to:


Identify and manage risks right from the start;


Define and manage project scope;


Deliver project results on time and within budget;


Ensure deliverables meet or exceed user needs;


Deliver products of high quality; and


Deliver the benefits that justified your investment.

CipherSync project managers employ proven work structures that give you control over IT investments, whether your project is tactical and local or global and strategic.

Project Management Process

CipherSync’s methodology allows our project managers to approach each assignment in a consistent, results-oriented manner with a toolkit of best practices in hand. The uniform application of a consistent method of project management favors the identification and control of deliverables. Uniformity also facilitates the assignment and rapid integration of participants in the project.  Every CipherSync service contains our built-in project management process.  We base this on the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) published by the Project Management Institute (PMI).  We have adapted to meet the specific needs of our initiatives. The CipherSync project management process supports the complete project life cycle and includes the following steps:

bullet Project Initiation and Planning
bullet Project Execution
bullet Project Control
bullet Project Closing
