Quality’s IT Programs and Projects Management Services

Our approach to project management is both science and art. We have developed a project management methodology that adheres to the best practices espoused by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). We have documented our methodology in the Quality Project Management Handbook, a 250+ page guide which addresses all aspects of project leadership, technical approaches, team communication, and client synergy. Our project management practices are often adopted by our clients who wish to improve their organization’s program effectiveness. Quality’s professionals also use tools such as Microsoft Project, e4IS and Visio. And our clients often ask us to mentor their organizations in the application of project management procedures, techniques, and tools.
