Program Management

Product Life Cycle Management

For each customer, Network Allies assigns an experienced and dedicated Program Manager who serves as the primary point of coordination between the engineering, procurement, manufacturing, quality, and service teams of the two organizations. As a result, we perform as the “virtual hardware division” of our OEM and ISV customers.

    The specific benefits of our program management approach with customers include:
    • Delivery of Change - More effective delivery of changes because the changes can be planned and implemented in an integrated way ensuring that current business operations are not adversely affected
    • Alignment between strategy and project levels - Effective response to strategic initiatives by filling the gap between strategies and projects 
    • Management support - Keeping activities focused on the business change objectives by providing a framework for senior management to direct and manage the change process
    • Resource management - More efficient management of resources by providing a mechanism for project prioritization and project integration
    • Risk management - Better management of risk because the wider context is understood and explicitly acknowledged 
    • Benefit realization - Help to achieve real business benefits through a formal process of benefit identification, management, realization and measurement
    • Management control - Improved control through a framework within which the costs of introducing new infrastructure, standards and quality regimes can be justified, measured and assessed
    • Business operations - Clarification of how new business operations will deliver improved performance by defining the desired benefits and linking these to the achievement of new working practices
    • Management of Business Case - More effective management of the Business Case by building and maintaining a Business Case that clearly compares current business operations with the more beneficial future business operations
    • Coordination and control - More efficient coordination and control of the often complex range of activities by clearly defining roles and responsibilities for managing the Project Portfolio and realizing the benefits delivered by the program
    • Transition management - Smooth transition from current to future business operations through the clear recognition and responsibility for preparing the organization for migration to new ways of working
