The AT&T Consulting Project Management service provides full technology
life cycle leadership based on the guidelines of the Project Management
Institute (PMI). AT&T Consulting can provide project management for
engagements in conjunction with our entire service portfolio. Project
management of technology projects often requires technical knowledge and
experience in related deployments. AT&T Consulting project management staff
offer the unique combination of project leadership as well as technical skills.
This cross-disciplinary approach helps link project performance to milestones,
and successful coordination of functional teams to address risks and project
Complex enterprise architecture initiatives require the coordination of
multiple technology streams, and internal as well as external constituents.
AT&T Consulting offers comprehensive enterprise-wide program governance for
these multi-dimensioned environments. The PMO function is established in a
three-tiered model of Executive, Managerial and Operational read-outs,
capturing metrics which aggregate into measurements, which lead to decision
making and actionable activities. Weekly or daily (as need and program urgency
prescribe) dashboards are developed and maintained. Risk management and
remediation activities are part of the program office methods and practices.
The communications architecture for complex programs is built, and RACI
(Responsible - Approver - Consulted – Informed) charts identifying roles and
responsibilities are defined, establishing clear areas of accountability. This
helps reduce the risks associated with large scale program execution, improving
overall team and program performance.
